    Great set of notes Driftwood. I’ve been flying the clipped wing version a lot lately. Even managed a kill on CombatBox last night. Thanks for sharing these!

    As many folks have complained about over the last few weeks, the bug where you zoom-in your view to see a target (I call it "concentrating" your focus on one area) and it disappears entirely, only to re-emerge when you un-zoom your field-of-view, is EFFING ANNOYING. C'mon 777 Studios, let's put a high priority on fixing that bug, please!

    Oh yeah!! I posted on the ORBX forums that I had planned on not buying anymore add-one until MSFS2020 comes out, but those fellas just had to release the airport right in my backyard.

    It is a bit of a hot rod, I have a hard time getting it whoad up. Sometimes I might have to make a full circuit around the airfield, I definitely use the dive brakes and when she's under 250 I can give her 10-15% (maneuvering) flaps, all the while keeping the throttle just above the buzzer sound, warning you your gear isn't down, I'll run the prop pitch down to about the same % as the throttle, then lower my gear. Then on final I watch my speed carefully, sometimes not getting full flaps until I'm about a minute from touch down (due to speed), I opened them up once going too fast and they jammed. Once you're down, braking isn't a big deal because of the tricycle gear. Like Chunk said if I'm a little hot I won't close the dive brakes until I've stopped. If on final I think I'm about to stall I can do a few things to stop it from stalling; if I have enough altitude I can nose down a bit; or if I don't I can close the dive brakes and give it some throttle and/or prop pitch. That's all there is to it! lol I'm definitely busy landing the lightning, and remember to flair, don't let the nose gear touch first, it'll buckle like a folding chair! Yes I did that too.

    Ya I bought one of those dell refurbished optiplex 3020 strictly being used for wed browsing and MS office, to replace a loud older laptop. Pulled the 500gb hd threw in a extra 500gb ssd I had laying around loaded win 10 using the creation tool and have a speedy little unit with win 10 pro for less than $200

    Happy Thanksgiving y’all!! Turkey is already in the smoker and my first pour of the day has already gone down the gullet. High West Yippee-Ki-Ay if you’re wondering...

    Just a quick note to wish everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving! I'm already wearing my Turkey-day stretch-pants, warming up the belly with cheap coffee and even-cheaper Irish cream, while I start dragging out the Christmas decor... later I'll fall asleep in front of the Detroit game; and while the Cowboys play, I'll wake so I can start getting in the way in the kitchen! Happy Thanksgiving all!

    Kind of a low-res view of me in a D9 attacking a Sp;it (found out afterward it was flown by Woody). Initial view is after I had dived down quite a bit, because I could easily spot the silverish aircraft I thought was a P-51 initially. As I hit the record button and continued my dive, I completely lost site of the target, eventually picking it up; as it flew by going the other way. Sheesh! A few tight turns later I get a solid ID on the Sp;itfire, and was about to take the kill shot when some random bit of stall happened, took my nose off target right at the top of it's climbing turn. I followed the Spit around, nearly blacking out as I pulled in behind it. Finally got a good guess on where to shoot (the gyro sight in the D9 sucks, IMO) and sprayed/prayed for a hit. But... What I thought was a piece of the Spit falling off and colliding with my prop may have actually been a flak hit on the Spit, taking it's wing off and which also wrecked my prop. When I flashed to external you can see the flak burst nearby... Interesting fight, and really the only victory I had all night. Downloadable /mov video file (doesn't stream for me ... YMMV) sandy_d9_vs_spit_11_26_19.mov

    http://bhah.homeip.net:192/Group Files/fcgerman balloons.rar set a vehicle on the ground under the balloon, get it's altitude, then make the low waypoint that altitude +40m. Set high waypoint to whatever you want the balloon to be, and radius of complex trigger to whatever you want. Appears they did not attach a flare gun to these balloons, or I am doing something wrong, but have yet to get one to shoot off a flare when I approached.

    Well this bird is proving to be a pain in the butt..... almost have my speed references set to keep me out of trouble. Try doing loops over the runway in continuous power, 2700 rpm, 46", enter the loop at around 250 mph, as you come over the top and head back to the ground, watch your speed and make sure you let the speed build up to 200, 225, pulling into 250 as you finish the loop at the bottom, then repeat... or try a split S, then as your nose is pointed at the ground/vertical dive, let your speed build up and start pulling back on the stick as you hit, 200, 225, 250 as you pull out of the split S.... Should give you a good feel for where it's easier to control the plane, for me....... 240-340 mph..... spit is 220-320 mph... But as you go below 200 mph and get a bad angle, too much throttle or abrupt throttle will spin you out.... I still need to figure our the max speed/dive/ and when to back off so I don't lose elevator authority or briefly lose it. Should be able to put the stick in my lap followed by easing the stick forward as the speed bleeds off and my elevator authority quickly comes back. "once I know the magic numbers" fickle bird.

    PSSS.....I picked these three items completely at random...my intent was that this be a PG rated action story adventure.....not pornography. I would leave that assignment to Sensei. Just thought I should clarify.
