  1. This sadly is my reasoning for distancing myself from the squad. #4
  2. Have a great day--- Happy BIrthday !!!!!
  3. To a great pilot and really nice "humble" person !!!!
  4. Thanks for all the great missions Fawlty !!!!! Have a great safe summer !!!!
  5. Worldly pedals indeed !! Interesting how fast they get to you, mine took 3 days.
  6. Pfizered here--- Two weeks as of yesterday since our ( Diane and I ) second shot. Sandy--- Diane got sick after her second shot . She had felt bad the night of the shot and had a fever of 101F for two days and was pretty run down. Ben ( our son ) told her the same thing Duck said, that the ill effects means it's working for you--- Can now visit my mom and dad without having to wear a mask---they have both had their second Pfizer shot three weeks ago. Thing are looking hopeful---- finally !!!!
  7. Sandman---- you are in for a treat !!!!! Congrats !!!
  8. I have my damper set at a pretty high dampening ( +18 clicks ), and have the pedals spring strength set pretty strong and as far as centering goes it gets close enough to centering for me and I just use outside visual clues as well as the the occasional glance at the turn coordinator ball for insuring coordinated flight. I sure do like it this way !!!
  9. Very well then , shall we go together ---
  10. I have been thinking the same thing Craven. You go first !!!!
  11. That man looks too serious to be climbing on ladders --- Seriously though this system works great and so far I have not had any type of grade limitation ( spent another 6 hrs on this ladder---- having to repair/replace more wood on the house than I thought, the painting is the easy part !!!
  12. Well I l found something cool to use when painting your house if you are on a hill or unlevel ground and using a ladder. I hate having to paint the side of our house because of the hill we are on . I was looking for a safe way to level the ladder in situations like this and found this provision ladder levler . Unfortunately this thing cost on average @ $ 120 and Diane says my life is just not worth that . So, I had a brain spasm and thought of my car ramp. It is same shape and all so put it to the test and this works great. Just be careful and test before really putting a lot of trust in this but so far so good. If I get injured I will be sure to post accordingly
  13. I sure wish you the best with all this Biker !!! Man folks, I forgot this was Tuesday meeting, I have been painting the house among many projects going on now and between this and trying to maintain my fitness routine, I am really pushing my limits so that when all is done it is about 8:15 pm EST when I hit the shower and try to recap the days events so to speak. I stayed in neutral a bit too long last night and lost track of time----- can I blame it on age ???? But really sorry to have missed this event !!!
  14. Perfect Biker !!!! That just looks , all in place , if that makes sense !!!! I am with you on that search for inner peace !!!!
  15. Hey Craven !!! Me likey a lot !!! I have the damper that Milan sent at about 18 clicks going on the heavy side and loosened the tensioner spring a bit and this removes the feel of the center detent. Is it going to make me a better combat pilot--- doubt if anything will help me with that but it does start to feel a bit more realistic and does give me better control of the planes ground handling and over correcting sometimes in flight. I just have mind mounted on a spare piece of wood that was long enough to give side to side stability when cranking these things over. It's nice to invest in something that gives back good positive returns !!!! These sure do that !!!!
  16. Thanks Sandy, that monitor gets excellent reviews on Youtube and is rated among the top especially for a ips monitor. It apparently uses the same screen as the LG 27GL850 which is very popular and gets excellent reviews however this Dell is a bit less expensive and even has better performance. That definitely looks to be a winner !!!
  17. Sandy, in reference to your monitor above, may I ask what monitor you are using. I am still in quest of eliminating any shimmer on the far horizon in Il-2. Thanks !!!!!
  18. Just got an email from Milan ( MFG Crosswind ) saying he is going to be releasing his own combat pedals soon and he may include the pedals that Replika sells if he thinks they are durable enough. Wish graphic cards were as available as this stuff is !!!
  19. I just recently experimenting with graphic settings and among some changes I changed draw distance from 150 km to 100 km and have not been having troubles with the disappearing planes upon zooming in on them when they are far away. who knows if this helps or not ????
  20. Hmmmm, Just thinking, we now have hydraulic rudder system. We will actually have to start a real preflight with our "sim " and check for any fluid leaks !!!! OMG !!!! We will most likely now have to learn to service these because all hydraulics will wear out sooner or later requiring o-ring replacement and fluid replacement. I am going to install a low fluid light on mine and low pressure warning light. What have we done !!!!!
