  1. KISM is where I started training for my PPL about 30 years ago. Do you train there?
  2. I didn't claim anything. I posted a video of myself landing a plane in very tough conditions to show it's easier to handle a real airplane. A young looking guy like yourself would have probably bounced it down the runway.
  3. If the METAR shows gusty winds, will it be bumpy like it should or be a smooth ride?
  4. I think it's the flight model's reaction to the forces that makes it more difficult. For instance, taking off in a 737 with a 10 crosswind does take opposite rudder to stay on the centerline, but it takes too much overcorrection in the sim to get it right. If you center the rudder for instance, it'll immediately weathervane abruptly. It should be a slower/smoother reaction if that makes sense. Osobo said they 'added' gusts to live weather. I'm curious if they just added gusts everywhere to please the masses? I stated earlier that turbulence seems to be in places you wouldn't expect it and it's not there where you would expect it. Still fun to fly though.
  5. This short clip is from me flying a c152 after I haven't flown a small plane in years. Had to go around the first attempt because I started flaring at 30 ft. All I'll say is real aircraft are MUCH easier to fly than in MSFS and that includes the airliners. Taxiing much easier too. Perhaps the weathervaning characteristics are a bit overdone? https://youtu.be/LrICt4YjGwE I picked the worst day to go flying a c152 that's for sure.
  6. Asobo “might” have done something on the back end because it’s much better now. I was part of SU10 beta and my only gripe was constant gusts everywhere . It stayed pretty smooth until I got below the cumulus layer and it got bumpy. I tested in a low wind area and where gusts were on the metar. Seeing bumps in cumulus clouds too. Can someone else test?
  7. What does that have to do with how gusts are implemented in the sim?
  8. You shouldn't be getting bumped around in a large aircraft if the wind is 3 kts at night with the speed tape and wind direction/velocity arrows jumping around. It doesn't need to be 'dumbed down' but implemented correctly. The way I see it is you get turbulence when you shouldn't sometimes and hardly any when you should. (Cumulous clouds)
  9. Does it come with animated rioters and fires that are happening right now?
  10. Hideous is too kind of a word. From the graphics, to start up procedures, the autopilot, the guy who made this ought to be embarrassed. Even if it was freeware I wouldn't fly it again.
  11. After a couple of flights, I can't find one positive thing to say about this plane. Airbus flood and Integ light switches? Cmon man!
  12. Most of us want to hear engine sounds, not strip club music.
