  1. Don't forget to add bit miners. With that market going crazy, they are grabbing every GPU they can get their hands on .Nvidia, supposedly has admitted to selling pallet loads directly to them.
  2. There was a twitchy elevator response? After 30 years. I can't even remember what I used for a joy stick. I think it was a small simple device or maybe just the keyboard.
  3. Airline Transport Pilot by Sublogic in 1990 was the ultimate flightsim for me.
  4. I'll second the suggestion for URCDKey. I've used them before. Also no problem with changing my MB and CPU and using my original key.
  5. He has to have (Kevin), one of the nicest 310's flying, especially with what he has done to the panel. Can't wait to see his new paint job.
  6. Five, four three, two, one......and begin!

    Your age?

    In 9 more days, I will have lived through 13 US Presidents. Born in 1946. Dad didn't waste anytime when he got home from the war.
  8. If this turns out to be anywhere near as good as they are saying, I wouldn't be surprised if we don't see 'shortages' and long waits to get our hands on one.
  9. I'm confused as to how it's going to be set up. If the brakes of the aircraft are set, then yes it's going to fly a short distance. What you would have is the equivalent of a catapult launch. If the wheels are allowed to turn freely, then no way it's going to obtain flight. You would have no movement of air over the wings. Fitz
  10. I doubt if those little stubs would provide much lift for gliding a huge beast like that (I think a Hind weights over 9 tons empty!) , especially through all the maneuvers he was doing. He was doing 360's while almost in a hover at one point. Plus I think the rotors continue to rotate even if they are shut down. Isn't that what they call auto rotation? I think I'll stick with the strobe effect for now. However, I also wouldn't put pass someone doing some digital editing. John
  11. That's an easy one. I'm no expert, but I believe it's called the strobe effect, where it just looks like the rotor's are standing still. I'm sure someone will jump in with a more scientific explanation. I probably shouldn't have replied as I suspect you already know that. lol John
  12. Boy, that's scary. The implications could have been real nasty. Fitz
  13. I was under the impression that there is no Afcad editor currently available for FSX. If true, wouldn't that make it difficult to implement a traffic add on to FSX? Fitz
  14. Bingo! That's the key to moving the view. You have to hold the key's down. Nice catch. Fitz
  15. A major issue would be equipment failure, which at some point happens sooner or later. A visually impared pilot wouldn't be able to fall back on the old "seat of the pants" flying. Having said that,I'm sure it will happen eventually for one of those "Ripley, Believe it or Not" type shows. Fitz
