    In 1929 the US Navy purchased a Bristol Bulldog for evaluation. On October 25, 1929, the Bulldog II (c/n 7358, s/n A-8485) was tested by the US Navy at Anacostia, but during a dive-bombing run, an aileron failed causing the plane to crash and killing the pilot Lt. Cuddihy. After static tests at Filton, a modification was made to the wing and a replacement Bulldog (c/n 7398, s/n A-8607) was sent to the US Navy on February 24, 1930. Cheers, Huub This is the Bulldog which crashed.

    Dave the post you saw was made in a separate thread. http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/showthread.php?94210-Stampe-Patch As Roger said, for an unknown reason spad54 is not able to post anything in this thread. As it seems better to keep all information in one place, Roger copied the original post, which spad54 made in the other thread, in this thread. So you there is nothing wrong with you. (well at least as far as I know...... :biggrin-new:) Cheers, Huub

    Isn't it just as in real life. Over the years I have bought quite some things which did not meet my expectations. Food which tasted not as good as I expected, clothes which didn't look as good in me as they did in the shop, a car which lasted much shorter than expected. But I also went to cheap restaurants which served delicious food, found my favourite coat in a sale and bought the best car I ever owned. For me payware models are no exception, some didn't meet my expectations and some were much better than I had ever imagined. And to be honest I never had any real bad experience with the service provided by payware developers. But I have a reasonable back-up system, due to which I never had to ask for a re-download. Cheers, Huub

    Jake that AMD HD4800 while not the fastest does do some nice high-end graphics. However, a faster GPU with 2GB of fast video ram will help a bunch before you start spending a lot of money on upgrades. Also, my QX9650 comes in real close the performance of the i5 2500k processor. I did a computer for Milton at SOH with Q9550 and know it to be a pretty quick 775 base processor when combined with a fast GPU and RAM memory. Let's face it though, to take real advantage of what is possible in FSX and X-PLANE 10 moving to the i7 platform 64 bit is a must do if you have the bucks to spend. Those articles I posted earlier give a good indication of what is possible at some pretty great prices.

    Ditto this post! Early in FSX I made a couple of bad purchases by listening to the marketing hype and not doing enough background search and questioning. SOH has been pretty good about helping flight simmers discover the best products! Our developers in here account for themselves very well. Ted By the way, we can thank our freeware and shareware developers for raising the bar for FSX aircraft, skins, and sceneries!

    Lucky man!! :jump: My brother went to the september show about 4 years ago but it was rainy. Last week-end it was La Ferté Alais airshow and I use to go there on Friday afternoon to see the aircrafts when they arrive but unfortunately, I was at a meeting at CDG and was not able to go there this year. It's a shame, there was a Hurricane and I've never seen this bird flying.

    Ted, Maybe I need to change the title of this thread. I don't mind giving an upgrade a shot if it will bring some results. That sounds like the MB I am using. Let me reply back later today when I am in front of the computer. I will have more specific information then. Thanks

    Jake I am still running my old Gigabyte X-48 DQ-6 with a QX9650, Samsung 840Pro 256 GB SSD, and a Gigabyte 780GTX on a Windows 7 platform oc'd to 4.2GHz and it runs everything I throw at it beautifully-very fluid. X-Plane, FSX, P3d, high graphics. I have built some fantastic i7 platforms but just have not seen a need to move up yet. However, if you really feel the need to move to the i7 platform. This is some pretty good reading, and normally I don't quote Computer Shopper. http://www.computershopper.com/feature/tested-five-intel-z97-motherboards-for-haswell. I have always preferred Maximum PC for my info on builds. I built this killer system for a friend for $1376 using only one GTX 780 and one Samsung 850PRO SSD. http://www.maximumpc.com/maximum-pcs-turbo-build-for-may-2015/ Good luck,...

    flyinjake started a thread XPlane PC Build in X-Plane
    Well its getting close to that time where I am thinking about a PC build for XP. Let me go ahead and say money is an issue but I am willing to step out for performance. Keep in mind I am buiding a simpit and I may want more than one PC down the road. Currently running a Q9650 OC'd to 3.3, 4GB RAM, SSD for XP and I cannot remember what AMD card I have. Seems like it was a 47XX series. Maybe a 5 series if that existed. Been looking for ram to up it to 8GB and possibly a newer video card but not in a rush to spend that on an older computer unless the price is right. Yes, I like performance and eye candy...who doesn't? I have not looked at computer hardware in sometime so I will admit I am clueless on some of the newer items. I have an unused SSD in the tool box that I can use on...
