    Hey All, Dave your choice but the video is clear. Brad was simply saying I'm here and I am as good as anybody - this younger driver must give win to older driver is just BS. That old earn your way to the top in a respectful way is just BS! You get one shot go for it! I like Brad for that and say good on ya. You think Roger Penske said Brad you supposed to let Carl win. I doubt it. Brad is a I ain't givin you an inch an I don't expect an inch from you late in the race kind of driver. Dale Earnhardt my all time favorite (in a tie with David Pearson a thinker) was that way too. Brad will make every driver out there respect him and I like that. Kevin harvick another favorite of mine is a bit that way too. An Joey Logano another favorite well maybe - he is a talent but I'm not sure what his...

    Hey All, I'm fine with just leaving this alone as Brad and Roger talked about it as owner to driver not older wiser to young hothead. Daveroo Carl was in the wrong Brad had the position stayed above the yellow line and did as NASCAR said Boys have at er and drove thru Carl when he tried to block. Carl's retaliation was near criminal and he got a 3 race probation and should have got worse. Go look at the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HewP8joqTJ4 Listen to Carl - he should have given me room - he got his. Carl was disgusting. Brad is just better. And as for Kenseth - he admitted in his post race interview he should not have tried going outside Brad.

    EasyEd, Once again, your "pro-Brad" bias is blatantly obvious. You've ignored my last reference to Kurt Busch and instead, chosen to revert back to Al Unser Jr. In any event, it's pointless for me to debate this anymore because as Daveroo pointed out, in the end you are always right in your mind...

    Dale I build gamer units LOCALLY ONLY for a living however I agree with Nick N as to what and how to build a great unit for FSX, P3D and X-Plane. I am not bragging but I build some of the fastest and best Flight Simulation hardware for way below what it would cost at a GAMER retailer. Nick is the MASTER BUILDER! So if you are patient in your reading of the following you will find the keys to the kingdom in building and enjoying the FSX/P3D experience...I promise. Read all of this. Make a sandwich and get your favorite beverage and decide to read this until you fully get what Nick is saying. Trust me you will be a very happy FSXer!

    Hey All, You have never heard me say one bad word about Roger Penske and you will not. As an owner he no doubt did talk with Brad about the incident. Your trying to say Brad is an out of control hothead as out of control as alcoholic Al Unser Jr is what is over the top. I do not buy it at all. be an interesting race. -Ed-

    Kurt Busch. But again, your heavy "pro-Brad" bias clouds your ability to view the larger picture. See Wombat's post above. And if you truly believe that Brad didn't receive any words of wisdom from Roger, then your bias is simply way over the top.

    Hey All, Well I guess I'll point it out. Equating Brad Keselowski with an alcoholic open wheel racer who wrote a book about being an alcoholic is not valid and I've little doubt Roger would agree. On to Martinsville... I'm likin the Harv here however the fords will be hard to beat but my sentimental favorite is Ryan Newman - I'd be ecstatic if Ryan could give another championship to Richard Childress my favorite owner... -Ed-

    Like I said... At the end of the day, his name and company reputation mean more than trophy's. But I understand you being biased towards Brad is not keeping you objective here.

    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

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
