I'm pretty much done modeling. I don't know what else ought to be included. The polies are available. I just had reservations on the accordion appearance. I think it's better than the other way. Like I said, I don't like the look of bumped fins.

I am pointing out two things... first the comment about Real Flight being better than MSFS... which we all know to be comparing two different animals.

Second... Aerofly is doing what I requested right now. Check out the magazine. It would be cool and if you just positioned one of several instrument clusters in your cockpit, it might be easy and cool. Just because you don't want it does not mean others might not. I might buy aerofly just to take a look and because it is also available for the Mac. RF might just have to keep up with the jones. Then of course Rise of Flight is pretty good for WWI simulators and will show how RF needs to look at those planes again. Forgot to mention Phoenix.

Now as far as going back to MSFS, was that nice? and I prefer X-plane 9 anyway. Version 10 is out now. Keep hearing rumors of a FS upgrade... but that has not been happening.

One.

Now what?

When ratings affect my income, or my health, or my family, then maybe I'll care about them. They really mean nothing, you know.

I think midnight is asking for a Feature Request.
It would make sense if NavGuides can be skinnable for an FPV display like the small OSD kits out there.
Could they be tied to an IP? Probably, but then again this is R/C, I've yet to see a youtube FPV video with a working gauge IP.

Oh wait, we were talking about the Srike... Looking great Jeff.

I would actually like steam gauges.... but keeping a kettle of steam going to fly the sim might be a bit much to ask.

Hey Aerofly has the feature.

Where we're you a few hours ago?! I think what I have is a good approximation. Take mine, and a highly detailed gun, and do a 40 mph flyby at 15 yards, viewed from the ground as a real RC pilot would. You won't be able to tell the difference.

Sorry I wasn't here earlier. I was out working on my other 2 hobbies, motorcycles and BBQ. The big surprise today was that the BBQ spot, Pik-N-Pigs, was located on the grounds of the county airport, just outside Carthage, NC. Our group sat out on the patio and I got to watch all the comings and goings of people/planes flying in to eat. The highlight of the day airplane was was an very nice green and gold V-tail Bonanza.

About that gun - can you make it shoot?

From the other thread about working instruments - I am with you. Who cares.

One thing I want - a plane that pulls a banner where I can change the message.

Happy New year!!!

I have no plans to make the gun shoot. That's not my thing. That's editor stuff, anyway. Anyone interested can do it for themselves.
