  1. Chris, this video and your others are very well done. thank you for sharing.
  2. Our Amazon orders shipped out of the same location and same time it looks like. New Egg hasn’t shipped the quadrant yet. I’m opening up the yoke and throttle from Microcenter as we speak.
  3. Mine will be delivered tomorrow. Crazy how you can order from Dell or Amazon months ago with a promised ship date. Then their ship dates are pushed out a month or two later. Micro center who is a small retailer in the scope of Dell and Amazon has product. Ordered Monday Shipped Tuesday and is sitting in the FDX Ground DC an hour from my home this minute for tomorrow delivery. Great job Micro Center. I have a second quadrant that is ordered through New Egg in Nov. They said in stock but that order still (preparing). No communication from New Egg when it will even ship now.
  4. Mitch, thank you. Your sceneries are awesome. Weren’t you doing KABQ at one point?
  5. I went on Microcenter’s website. They showed in stock for shippable items yesterday. Got an email that it shipped today and will be here Friday. I canceled my Dell order for it today. Their ship date changed twice and it’s into February. I still have my Amazon order that’s showing to arrive between Jan 19th-25th now. Should I keep the order and sell it or just cancel it? If I keep the order to sell. It would be for my expenses and product only. Price of yoke, freight to me. Tax I paid and freight to who buys it.
  6. I ordered off Dell with a 12/23 release date advertised. Last week they extended that to 1/7 release. I ordered off Amazon and they are saying it’s supposed to arrive by 1/5 at my house. Should I cancel one? Return one or sell it for what I paid for it?
  7. Thank you. I’ve been hoping you would release it. Merry Christmas.
  8. I'll believe it when I see it. Go Flight stuck me with a bad 737 yoke. Multiple times they said they would help fix it. They never did and ghosted me. I would never recommend Go-Flight.
  9. This yoke looks pretty good. It says it’s metal. I preordered from Dell. They have free expedited delivery and allocation for 12/23/21 shipping. Amazon and others are showing sold out.
  10. Agreed. There are so many ways to obtain college without financial debt. It’s available for anybody to EARN.
  11. I normally read past your long winded rants. My father is a disabled Vietnam vet. He was the oldest of 7 kids living in a 2 bedroom home. He still could have went to college but chose to do his duty. His college was paid for by the US Govt.
  12. My Dad is disabled from the Vietnam War. He’s not homeless. He has food. He has great medical care. He has a caregiver paid for by the Govt. Tell me something, if large corporations (billionaires) pay higher taxes, do they pass them off in increased costs on products that they provide us? Have you seen the rate of inflation this year?
  13. Non sure how a topic of free college turned into the USDOD budget and hunger. I can personally say if the USDOD didn’t exist that there would be many places on the planet hungry (natural disasters, wars, humanitarian missions). Back too free college, did anybody here go to public schools growing up? They were not free. Tax dollars go towards paying those schools. Free college, tax dollars would be paying for it. Going back to nothing in this world is free.
  14. Thank you Noel. He did all the heavy lifting. I just gave him the roadmap to get there. Our children are the only legacy that’s going to matter in our lives.
  15. I could never understand why people are worried about changing things with freeware? If everybody felt that way, we’d have a very limited amount of repaints, scenery and such. I don’t think a publisher will pick it up for payware. FS9 is nearly 2 decades old. The money is in the newer sims.
  16. It existed then and exists now. Nothing is for free. You either pay for it or work for it. The United States Military provides free college. My son is in the Army earning E-5 pay right now. The Army pays his tuition at The Citadel. He’s a Junior at The Citadel and will be a second Lieutenant upon graduation next year. He just won The Presidents Award for academic and Military excellence. He just turned 21.
  17. Another die hard FS9 user here. Johan Dees did the modified sim1.dll. He site is no longer available. He use to be here on Avsim often over the years. Not sure if he’s still around. I’ll look through my decades of downloads to see if I still have it later today.
  18. A number of “private strips” were created in the 1980’s. The “Cocaine Cowboys” used them to fly Cocaine and weed up from Colombia.
  19. I always stay a video card model behind. I bought the 2080 TI from New Egg last August. They dropped prices to clear inventory for the 3080. I guess they didn’t anticipate the demand and raw material shortages for them. I ordered that morning and New Egg dropped the price of the 2080ti within 5 minutes of ordering. They wouldn’t honor the new price. I ended up having to message New Egg’s CEO on Linked In and I was able to get it at the lower price. Now all their 2080ti cards are over $2000.
  20. Thank you for the reply. I should have bought them years ago. I have FSX, P3D and MSFS. I just am stuck on FS9. I appreciate the quick response. If you change your mind about selling legacy products again, please let me know. Enjoy your day, jeff
  21. Hello, I’m trying to purchase WX 500, Jetline 2 EFIS and Jetline 4 EFIS for FS9. I go to purchase and it takes me to Flight1. Flight 1 says it’s no longer supported and to contact the developer. How do I purchase these? Thank you, jeff
  22. I’ve used a number of rudder pedals over the years. I was using CH Pro Pedals in the 1990’s. I went with the Saitek Pro Pedals that worked great and still would if I didn’t buy the Saitek Cessna pedals. The Cessna pedals worked awesome and still would but I bought the Saitek Fighter Pedals. Those worked great and still would if I didn’t buy the Thrustmaster TPR. I have a closet full of Flightsim gear over the years. The Saitek/Logitech pedals aren’t nearly as bad as one of the posts mentioned above.
  23. Great story. Brought back great memories as a kid but in the 70’s and 80’s. My dad was a Vietnam vet. I was in with multiple deployments and my son is entering his Jr year at a Military college and in the Army. Loved getting out in the bush with my buddies as a kid.
  24. This should be the file name traffic030528.bgl. Rename the file traffic030528.xxx and that will eliminate default traffic shown.
