  1. Arcam cd drive coupled with an Arcam D to A converter. Cambridge control amp & Cambridge power amp KEF 104 speakers, these are too big now, looking for something a good bit smaller! Best.... Phil
  2. Although dramitc, I cannot remember ever seeing a sky that looked antything like what this new "toy sim " proposes
  3. I sat down in front of the computer screen for 4 hours today and I just couldn't leave it, something I would never, ever do, but why? Because I was watching the Virtual Air Tatto. It should have been Fairford this weekend but obviously, that's not happening. Instead the organizers have put together 2 x 4 hour programs, visiting, the pilots, their aircraft, their bases and loads of other stuff including bits of last years show. It's really laid back, albeit that it's led by and RAF Group Captain, ex Phantom and Tornado pilot. I'm sure a lot here would love it, if you don't get this in time for part 2 on Sunday 11:00 - 3:00 UK time, I'm sure you'll be able to look back. There's even a virtual red arrows display performed by 9 pc pilots in different places around Europe and they're amazing! Just search virtual tattoo Best..... Phil
  4. I'm not sure if we are in agreament now or not, either way, no worries! Best.... Phil
  5. I don't think I am,surely it's on the MSFS website and it refer's to "this app", I don't consider Windows to be an app do you?
  6. Here's the source Microsoft's own site, near the bottom under the pics. https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/p/microsoft-flight-simulator-standard-preorder/9nxn8gf8n9ht?ocid=FlightSim_Affiliate_JustFlight_purchase&rtc=1&activetab=pivot:overviewtab Best.... Phil
  7. As indicated on the MSFS details, I guess Austin wouldn't demand all this .....

  8. Excellent idea Sir, it will be interesting to see it viewed through loyal XP users eyes. Best.... Phil
  9. Take a look here for advice.... https://www.helisimmer.com
  10. I think you may be a little missguided there. I feel a lot of XP users will be happy staying with xp in the direction they are already going. Time will tell of course but I hope I'm right! Best Phil
  11. Hello, Can anyone explain simply for me please the difference between field of view and zoom or are they the same thing? Best Phil
