Shame its not for FS9.

For how large the glass is the FPS loss isn't that bad actually. This thing performs far better than F1's Citation Mustang...
I'm seriously enjoying the "B" version... I'm in love with the STOVL system muwhahah!

HI Dino, i have a question regarding the STOVL operation, i finally mastered the hover except the forward speed setting. I would like to ask how they are set, IE to the sim variable or the keystroke? I ask as on my joystick i think i have assigned the buttons in the controls section directly to the trim, not assigning a keystroke to the buttons.
Dont be so apologetic about your work Dino... no need as far as I can see. All up to your usual high standard. Havent got the hang of the STOVL version yet and deck landings with the C always seem to result in a crash at the moment but hopefully will get the hang of it. Just one request ref the C model... if you do an update any chance you could include a C model without external stores as per the other 2? Thanks for the discount too Dino.
I am going to have to get this. It looks fantastic and the early reports make it too good resist!
Well I've been to one World Fair a picnic and a rodeo and that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard come over a set of earphones.
All - I had SimMarket to change the product name (and link) - it was their initiative to call it "the REAL F-35"...
Surely it is not the best move you can think of, commercially, but I always dislike improper use of words... new link below.
Credit for STOVL functionality goes to Rob Barendregt and Mario Motta (of Sim Skunk Works - he provided an excellent and free replacement to FSUIPC to enable Rob's "magic" functionalities)
When in hover mode, target speed is set as follows:
- If the NAV active frequency is locked on one of the supported carriers (default, Javier's Nimitz, Clemenceau) the speed is automatically set to the one of the carrier.
- 0 knots (ground speed) otherwise
Aileron trim controls are used to change the target speed - you may want to assign stick keys to these functions.
By the way, installer should have been fixed, too (hopefully!)
Sorry Dino but I cannot get the C model to deck land without a crash resulting... Even getting speed down to just under 130 knots and greasing the deck. Is there a way round this, something I can edit in the CFG maybe that will get over this.
Carrier operations have been tested very extensively and should work - will give it a try to see if there is anything strange in the retail build.
As cortomalteseit suggests, weight is a critical factor in carrier landings - you should make weight is below 47000 lbs (or 48, can't remember by heart right now) for the F-35C. Assuming you have started you flight with default settings (full fuel) you need to dump fuel before landing.
Energy bracket on the HMD is the main indicator of good landing approach.
(then...on carrier planes some users change the .cfg so that the landing gear is stronger... increasing the damage threshold - vertical speed the gear withstand in feet per minute - in the contact points section. But...shame on you if you do :-) !)
Thank you both for the help...that is probably it. I think I was over weight for landing. I will give what you suggest a try.
Took out fuel using FSX payload manager and landing was fine so thanks. Is there a quick fuel dump within the cockpit?... couldnt see any instrcutions on that in the manual?
Correct - examples are chosen so that all of the functions are shown.
It would have been better to create an "avionics map"... by the way, as far as I know the fuel page is an almost perfect replica of the real one (early software release of the F-35)...
Speed reading not my strong suit it seems
