    Seems like Evernham leaving Hendrick "wrecked" both Jeff & Kasey! :dizzy:

    Interesting thing is that Edwards & Kenseth are better off at Gibbs rather than Roush....:pop4:

    Let me think on how to simplify the process. The reason it is so complex is because of the different systems that use X-Plane...it accommodates all of them if you just figure how much your system can handle of X-Plane's versatility.

    Ya know, i'm going on about 23 hours without sleep right now so i'm a little loonier than normal, but i cant help thinking that the user interface is still the big drawback that intimidates people at first.. Perhaps though if we made a tutorial on how to set things up and what each menu contained it would help.. what do you think??

    I got into X-Plane at version 7 and was stunned by the flight dynamics compared to FSX and other sims, but the empty world was such a turn off. I only flew it just get a bit realism in my simming and then A2A came out with Accu-Sim and I went back to flying mainly FSX again. I came back when I saw X-Plane 10 and I love it...but it still bitc## to setup. But once you finally get it... it is WOW! Ted

    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 19:23
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

The Cockpit


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

First-Sim & I/O Cards

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.
