    2yrs removed from IndyCar and what does she do? For Andretti motorsport, she qualifies 11th and was the 3rd fastest Honda on the St. Petersburg grid only behind Sato and Hunter-Reay! Always knew that in equal equipment, she was faster than Danica! :mixed-smiley-010: And she qualified ahead Marco Andretti, Graham Rahal, Carlos Munoz, and James Hinchcliff - again this after sitting out all of 2014!

    Hey All, You can interpret it that way if you wan but it is not my intent. The question is what does the audience want? Technology or human drama racing? Which sells better technology or human drama? Which approach will get you more money? That is the objective - more money because of more eyes on the cars more return on investment. That is apparently Renaults position... I guess the other possibility is that Renault is unhappy with how the proceeds of F1 is divided up. There should be absolutely no favortism and be totally transparent. Is it? Or is it an old Euroboys club?

    The X-Planers remind me of the Apple computer crowd and X-Plane has a ton of them onboard. The funny thing was they really had nothing to act so superior about. When I was a OC manager at TechCor we used to laugh at the ridiculous amount of money they would pay for inferior ease of use equipment. That divided the computer community in exchange of ideas and technology, but it fueled software and hardware sales. I think we have the same problem/benefit in the flight-sim community. There are pros and cons to both products, but both can be of benefit. However the natural evolution for FSXers really is P3D. However, I personally will never give up FSX or X-Plane even if I can move to P3D some day.

    Hey All, Racing is about advertising - not racing. I have said that here more than once. That is why NASCAR has it about as right as you can get it making it drivers and teams against drivers and teams. Who really gives a rats petootie about who out technologies who? They will learn as people realize what JPM said is true - in F1 you have the best car you win the pole you win the race - it's easy. Think about it - I can't wait to see who finishes third - wow - that is the essence of racing - right? It ain't the 60s anymore - the money is too big. -Ed-

    Already? again?? We have always lived in a small community, and the retraction of FSX from Microsofts lineup dwindled that community to a microcosm of that already small community. To me, this sale is a direct reflection of that as it indicates that the potential continuing income of the FSX base flight simulator is approaching nil, and is being staged to be moved into the mothball library where all old games and software go. This worries me as it impacts continued and future development on the FSX platform. In truth after a year hiatus from flight simming, i returned to SOH only to find the exact same aircraft and the exact same scenery still being discussed in the forums. FSX is clearly entering the doldrums. The X-Plane community has not been an open community. Truth told, my own...

    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
