  1. For this example I'm using rudder trim, same idea works for elevator trim. I'm using a Warthog throttle, but same exact idea works for using the keyboard. I know of no way to do this except using Axis and Ohs (AAO), so I'm using that. Here's the idea, lets take the JustFlight Arrow, it has a rudder trim knob down low in the center. If you press the trim button or key it will turn very fast. Way too fast. So lets make it turn either slow or fast with one press of a button or key: Here's diagram of Warthog throttle (you can use the keyboard instead, just as easily). --------------- Here's the AAO screen, I've set up rudder trim left slow, left fast, right slow, and right fast (I chose those names). ----------------- Lets program for each of those. rudder trim left FAST: When button <30> is forward and button <19> (the assigned combo) is also forward, then the Event at the top (Rudder_Trim_Left) will be fast (notice the Fast is chosen instead of Med or Slow) Notice the Repeat box is ticked. This means when toggle switch <30> is pressed the trim knob in the sim will spin continuously very fast. --------------------- Rudder trim right FAST: When <31> is forward and assigned combo button <19> is also forward the Event at the top (Rudder_Trim_Right) will be fast and continuous. Everything is the same except the Event is now Rudder Trim Right instead of left. ------------------ Rudder trim left SLOW When button <30> is pressed and Assigned Combo <19> button is SUPPRESSED (not pressed) then event Rudder trim left will be slow. Notice the box 'surpress Key Down Event' is ticked. And the Slow box is now ticked instead of fast. And the Repeat box is NOT ticked. This means each tap of the 30 toggle switch will not repeat a trim, but only move the trim knob left in the sim only one tick! Super slow! To make very fine trim adjustments. ----------------------- Rudder Trim Right SLOW The event (shown at top) is Rudder_Trim_Right will be slow, not repeated, will happen when <31> toggle switch on the Warthog is forward, and toggle switch <19> is not forward (Supressed). ------------------- To use: just flip the 19 toggle up (it will stay up) and then 30 and 31 toggles will trim fast left and right for fast and course adjustments. Then flip the 19 toggle down (it will stay down) and tap 30 or 31 and trim will move one tick only for each press of 30 and 31. ------------------ Notes: I did not have to type any of those long words in the AAO boxes. Just flip a switch or tap a button and AAO fills in the space with the correct info: for example "Throttle-Hotas Warthog Button <19>". I don't have to type in any of that word not allowed. You can use a keyboard or other controller instead of the warthog, it programs the same way. The Device and Assigned Button boxes shows Warthog throttle and <30> etc. But a drop down box allows you to choose any connected controller or the keyboard instead. You can choose 'keyboard' and then use keys instead of buttons. It will work exactly the same. This same scheme can be used on the vertical elevator trim too in the same way. You could use either controller buttons or keyboard keys, your choice. The AAO programming would be very similar. -----------------------------
  2. Maddy is the only one in the video still in the group. I don't know any modern hit 'tunes' of today, they don't interest me. You can't dance to them like you could that jig.
  3. Can't wait for the movie. Cruise does stunts and goes for realistic imagery and minimum of cgi. His movies are all make believe of course. Critics have never been more united in favor of a movie. I see no hint in any review that there is going to be some social or political message to distract from the fun. You will probably make money betting in Vegas this movie wins best picture Oscar.
  4. "Plus, the 414 is larger and feels as if it’s larger. It has weight to it and you feel that weight on rotation and approach." Yes. The 310R is small and nimble and handles like a dream. You can if you like not use any help, no AP, and move the stick or yoke with your feet instead of your hands and do a reasonable landing. It does not fly on rails however, very realistic feel to the flight model. A bigger plane is more of a challenge and you can't go just anywhere in a big plane. It won't always fit and is not as versatile. But a big plane may be exactly what some people are looking for however.
  5. I never saw a purple plane, I hope to never C1 But I can tell you any how, I'd rather C than B1 -Gellet Burgess
  6. Just two months after their first album they appeared on ATV. In colour! Maddy Prior and Tim Hart were a struggling London folk duo and Ashley Hutchings left Fairport Convention, a traditional British folk band after an automobile accident had decimated it. This is the earliest video of them I'm almost sure. And was restored from an old home video tape with digital processing. Music from centuries past.
  7. On ebay you can buy a steam account and the games already on that account, also includes the email address associated with that steam account.

    Up Front...

    Schultz used to have the same theme every veterans day. Snoopy going to Bill Mauldin's house to see what the moody old maudlin Mauldin was reminiscing over on the holiday.
  9. I'm not sure how to set it up with MSFS assignments, I use AAO. But there are lots of choices in MSFS options.
  10. Your brakes axis are set to centering instead of non centering. At the center (half pressed there is no output and the brakes are off). I'm using AAO and this is how it is when I accidentally click the red arrow to make the DX axis assignment a centering axis. Half way down is OFF (centered).
  11. It used to be the JustFlight Arrows. Now the C310R as my favorite. I am surprised that's its also so many other persons' favorite, because it almost flies and lands itself, no challenge at all. Yet I do love it. There are a lot of good small bush planes too, including the inexpensive Asobo Huskey which is not the best, but best bang for the buck.
  12. Another reason for Photogrammetry: castles and cathedrals don't look like tall apartment buildings.
  13. Always on. Because I don't make believe graphics. I also don't like CGI in movies. Turn PG off and look at my own house. I would never recognize it. Turn PG on and yes, that's my house! And that's the houses of all my friends and extended family.
  14. Thanks, you are correct, the file in question is fs-base-nav. I'm not sure why it keeps getting messed up every 10 days or so on my installation. I am booting up MSFS 2 or 3 times daily. So maybe 1 out of 25 times I have to move fs-base-nav out of that subfolder under Official and let MSFS rebuild it at 'checking for updates'. It's not a big deal but puzzles me.
  15. I really like the new turbulence. I would prefer it to be about half of what it is now. Mainly I just reset the time to 7 AM which cuts it down to about 1/4 what it is now at 1 PM. I'm not sure what o'clock would usually be half turbulence, maybe 8:30.
