  1. If you are talking about Rudder pedals.. then it gets expensive quick... the Thrust master rudder pedals (the 80$ ones that go with the t1600m) are bad when it comes to being smooth... If it was modified and ran on some ball bearings that it would be much better … but my spring broke and then other parts on it broke... so it was junk.. I modded mine for a makeshift throttle/brake pedal until my 1000$ pedals arrived... Buy well made products otherwise it will just be a pain in the … at least in my experience.
  2. Thrust master has great hotas setup stick/throttle combo. Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS HOTAS Controller VKB sim- Gladiator a great hotas stick for 100.00 you will still need throttle if you want all the HOTAS THROTTLE. The stick has a throttle on it... but very basic. The Thrustmaster warthog throttle/stick has been bullet proof and going 3 years of many ours w/o a hitch... it has been solid.
  3. Thanks Honestly though, my track IR was quite jittery compared to all the other planes... but perhaps It was just a setting or something else.... Anyone else notice this ? Also the "Jester" was working a bit odd...
  4. So I had been on vacation, and placed 3 of the new fighter jets in my online Cart, and couldn't remember if I purchased them or not... I signed in and there was the F-14 flyable in all it's Glory... missions ect. The Jester thing was not working the way it should... not sure why but... either way, I was able to test it out for 1 eve. I was Tired from the vacation and such so I only played around with it for about 1 hour. Then I was like what ? I don't see it as purchased on my list of modules? Anyway, now DCS says it is no Legit and is disabled, so it says as I did not actually purchase this. Anyone else have this happed to them?
  5. Tpod dies not work now..... as it will switch from TPOD to the built in TV mounted on the aircraft... MAJOR suck... This after the latest update....
  6. Even with the fix, it is very difficult to see aircraft up close and personal, when vertical.
  7. Irritating to say the least fore me...... Not only has the latest patch has completely made the game unplayable....( I have best setup possible) and it can't run for crap... Not to mention I have 2-GPU cards that run in crossfire for ALL NEW GAMES.... FLAWLESS...... And it will make a HUGE improvement on the game FPS and I can turn everything on full.... but I don't have a 4k monitor or a ultrawide screen.... but... still if this DCS could get a Crossfire and other (not sure what Nvida calls it nowdays) up and running......would help... because yes.... it is a old Single threaded game that can not run better with more cores... but would run better if 2 gpu's would be able to run the graphics..
  8. Would like to know how you feel about the tanker pilots in this sim? Would like to know if a real life tanker could pull the same game that the AI pilot does in this sim? Example "you think you are all lined up to get some fuel?? , well I am going to pull up away from your f15c just enough, so the fuel boom doesn't reach the tank and every time you try to pull up to meet it, I am going to keep doing it!" I used the example of a friend driving the car away from you just as you try to get into the vehicle, he drives forward 1 foot!>... :lol::megalol: Except I would pull him out of the car and beat the snot out of him!..... (not really, but can you feel my frustration?) In my eyes the refueling in this simulator is either glitched or set WAYY to difficult. I am guessing that a REAL tanker, would not do this sim does... meaning it would be WAY More stable to fly behind, Unlike the sim.. Perhaps I have it all wrong, and should just go do something more enjoyable.... as it isn't fun any more...
  9. So you are Happy with the way the pilot flies the Tanker???? It reminds me of when my friends would wait for someone to try to get into a car, and JUST WHEN the person is attempting to open the door to get in, the driver PULLS AWAY....LOLOL It is like some SICK joke..... Fly at the ideal distance and when you get close the ****ER pulls up and away... and then the BOOM operator, doesn't have a LONG enough stick to get it into the ****ing fuel tank..... Jack ass driver...... (can you tell I just spent an hour trying to refuel my f15 while on a mission and failed)
  10. I believe the F/A 18c will be shipped with basic flight controls and min. combat readiness. Not a bad thing, but sometimes it is good to know, so expectations will be realistic.
  11. I preordered.... I also have almost all the modules.... so for me, I don't mind. latest for me: harrier AV-8B. I feel this one could wait until lots of things were fixed before Beta release. Sometimes PRE order, and Beta doesn't really live up to expectations. I think I would have waited with the harrier, until it was sorted better.... but one doesn't know until they get some seat time... the issues at hand. Just something to think about.
  12. All right the cool switch didn’t do anything for making the Mavericks work any better in general and Nevada the Mavericks have a hell of a time locking up the mobile Sam trucks they lock and everything else quite easily but for some reason the trucks are really difficult maybe there some sort of anti-reflective material or something like that but that was my biggest issue is I can lock everything else like at 9 to 10 miles, but with those trucks barely at 6 to 5 miles or closer. This was even with the A-10c, And they are stupid easy to get locked up at a distance usually so something with this recent change update, it’s really affected need to ability of the Mavericks to lock onto these Sam vehicles. ( sorry I don’t know the name but I believe they’re the ones that look like a halo vehicle ).
  13. Full throttle gives you 110% perhaps it is too much for it? But repair is repair.. period. Broken, wore out, bearing scraping, fin wobbling, engine should be fixed good as new, when repair is done. I didn’t know that full throttle would hurt the engine, perhaps it should state so in the upcoming fixes?
  14. The “cool” switch has to be on in order for the Mavericks to work properly I did not know that . I thought that was just for the sidewinders. FYI YouTube “RED KITE”has got some awesome videos on how to use the AV 88
