    I was Director of Marketing of my division and we spoke often at board meetings of our quest for consumer loyalty and gearing our products toward the consumer's wishes (at least as close as possible.) Marketing is NOT geared toward directing people toward faulty products...products are always evolving into what the consumer needs as closely as possible.

    If you will take a minute and look at most of your receipts from various stores you will find that they request survey material. The reason they do this is make better products and address consumer needs. Every corporation that produces a product has a Quality Control Department and Marketing Department. All of these are there for the consumer. If business did not listen to their customers we would have very poor product available to the pubic but products tend to get better because of customer input. Granted this is an unsolicited petition but some petitions have changed businesses and governments. If we take the negative and passive approach we won't change anything. Everything is possible though the outcome may not be exactly the way we all like it. It is still worth the effort to try.

    Actually that is not entirely true, the corporation I worked for 17 years did just that, but anyway this is simply a petition to see if we in this community can get the ear of M$. I am aware that M$ is not in the habit of listening to the Flight Simulator groups any longer but there is a small hope that some good can come of it. What do you lose by signing except 3 minutes of your time? By the way...this is not my petition but it is gaining some steam so I signed and have asked others to consider it. Ted

    If Microsoft would give them full rights under their license both would benefit as well as the community at large. Microsoft has given up on this franchise but tied everyone's hands forcing Dovetail and others to try to build their own flight simulator. Why reinvent the wheel if it already rolls well? My opinion...I really want to see as real as it gets become just that not some PS4 game. Totally outside of Microsoft I fear that it will become just that...

    MS Flight Simulator has been with us since 1982. I would like to see the next evolutionary step in flight simulation and I have signed this petition. Please sign Matthew Langdon's petition. Microsoft is done with advancing flight simulation but they can let another developer carry the torch and keep the franchise alive.

    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

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.
