    One of the biggest complaints I get about X-Plane 10 are the many undefined airports that scattered all over X-Plane. Well finally someone took upon themselves to fix the problem. The good news is that it is totally FREE! See the pics at the bottom of this site. http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=27582 You will need to add this and it is FREE as well: http://www.opensceneryx.com/2015/05/opensceneryx-2-1-1-released/ Enjoy, Ted

    Not intending to photobomb (literally) John's great thread. But, his shots inspired me to go through my collection and look at a few Grumman cats. It always impresses me how close to real this sim and John's screens look.

    I used to do contract work for Dell Systems, the Dell X51 is not truly a Dell product, it was originally Alienware and they built some very fine gaming systems. Dereck was my contact there he left when Dell bought Alienware but they still use a lot of the same Alienware engineers and techs so as far as I know it is still a fine game system. Ted

    Hey All, I wonder just how much of Okanogan county has not burned in the last 10 years - what with the tripod complex, the carleton complex and now all this year's fires? In western Canada we have had fire fighters from the US, Mexico, Australia and South Africa and now Canadian resources are going south. -Ed-

    Mason gives some good advice here. FSX definitely works better in the 4.0GHZ area, but another thing to consider for future use is 4GB of Vram on the video card you purchase. 64 bit X-Plane 10.3 now requires it for the new HDGLOBAL scenery, and it is AMAZING! While FSX is more CPU intensive more scenery is coming out monthly and there are plans for new 64 bit flight simulation software to be developed...so future proof your machine as much as possible.

    I build gaming units for a living but shipping and insurance is just to too expensive, so I only build locally now. However I agree with Willy. You can get some great deals through IBUYPOWER, newegg.com, etc.,just look for complete units. You won't need to spend $2000 to run FSX at DX10. There are some things you need to know as far as what components allow you to run at DX10 levels and keep in mind that one day you might want P3D or X-Plane. There's lots of friendly folks on here to help you pick the parts you need. I would go with WIN 10 i7 64bit system since you have at least that much $$$ available. Start here for newegg.com to give you an idea of what is available. Also look up IBUYPOWER they have a game system configurator and give you the complete price plus shipping if any....

    Hey John~ Thanks for helping me out with the "friendship request" issue. I did not get any notification at all.
    Gigabyte was able to help me with the Blog thing. So we are all set!
    Great teamwork there!
  2. Cool pic of you and the tweet!! I'm very envious. Maybe if I had better eyesight I wouldn't have failed my flight physical and toiled as a crew chief for so many years. Renting planes gets expensive!!

    You're kinda reserved, but I'd sure love to hear some good flying stories of your sometimes. What years were you active and what ypes did you fly?

Inside Beta Testing

by jmig on January 2nd, 2012 at 18:23
Over the last ten years or so, we have all seen MSFS models go from $5.00 each to $50.00 and more. With the increase in pricing, have come increased systems integration and model complexity. Interior and exterior visual acuity rivals today real aircraft. As the realism of flight sim models have increased, so too have the expectations of the consumer.

Developers are caught between the customers’ desire for ever better and more exact models, and the increased costs in man hours to program

End Devices for I/O Cards

Real world pilots control aircraft functions with switches, potentiometers, encoders, etc. We virtual pilots can also control our virtual aircraft with switches, potentiometers, encoders and more…through the I/O card.

Remember the I/O card is nothing more than a middle man between us and the flight simulator. By twisting a knob, or moving a control we send information through the I/O card to our virtual

Using I/O Cards

In an earlier entry I mentioned Input/Output (I/O) cards. Today we will look more closely at them and what they can do to enhance your flight sim experience. We will also look at some different I/O cards and later start building a simple switch panel which will control some of the MSFS basic functions.

Perhaps the most common I/O card available is the one in that old used joystick you have sitting up in the

I have had several requests for pictures of the cockpit. So I am posting here a few pictures of what the cockpit looks like. Please remember this is the acumination of six or seven years of research and work.

As we continue this blog, I will show you how I made many of the components and panels you see here.
This blog will go through the basic building blocks which together make up the simulator. Also, what

Here are pictures of my first sim “cockpit”. It consisted of two Go-Flight Modules and three parts I made myself.

I also used two monitors, One for the outside view and another for the instruments. Holding everything was a simple plywood frame I constructed to support the monitors and components.
