  1. I have arrived in the US (Portland, Maine KPWM). A relatively short and uneventful flight from Halifax. Next stop Niagra, I want to see how they handle dynamic water, I expect to be disappointed.
  2. As we descended through the clouds at -43c the windows started to ice up! Sunset through the clouds, awesome.
  3. I flew from Iceland to St Johns CYYT overnight. Because I was flying west, the sun was just below the horizon but never rose, so the whole flight and landing was in the dark! Landed with 24 gallons left, wouldn't want to go further as I had little to no wind. But thats the hard part done.

  5. In an effort to simulate an aircraft delivery flight I am going to fly from Marseilles to San Francisco in the TBM 930, It will take many legs, so far I have flown Marseilles LFMLto Paris LFPG Paris LFPG tp London City EGLC I will fly from London City to Lossiemouth then on to Kelfavik, from there I will fly to st Johns, the next stop will be in the US.
  6. I have had a little frustration with one plane, the Beechcraft Bonanza G36. As a piston engine airplane, you need to manage its throttle, prop rpm and mixture. As you climb you need to lean the mixture, failure to do so will lead to the engine stopping. But yesterday it wouldnt let me and kept pushing the mixture to 100%, as a result I couldnt maintain a climb, which was a problem on the 2 mountain flights yesterday, Lausanne to Carpentras (the nearest airfield to me) and Friedricshafen to Innsbruck. I have the flight settings on hard but I had failures on easy, when I changed that to hard I was able to control the mixture to a higher degree although there is a problem with the throttle at its extremes, when I push the throttle to 100% it pushes the mixture to 100% and when I pull the throttle to its minimum it cuts the mixture to 0 and stops the engine, so I need to figure that out. now I get 30 knots more out of the plane and can climb with less effort. The trim is savage, so I avoid it and use AP and vertical speed.
  7. No aiming just real world issues for people. But I am still up for it.
  8. I am up for it. However here are a few considerations. 20 laps can take 40 - 60 minutes. Once the race starts restarting is a ball ache People are often late (not to put a fine point on it, but I mean you,lol) People jump in and out due to home issues (dogs need to be told off or kids need to be taken out for walkies or some such) and or computer/peripheral issues. With that said I am happy to try.
  9. No training for me. Had a look at my house. Flew Nice Marseilles, Ibiza Mallorca. Figured out how to fly together with Cent. Enjoying the TBM 930, Flown a Baron twin as well. Turbo props are easier, piston engines need constant management. Hand flying, although I have mostly figured out the autopilot on the TBM.
  10. Not cheap for your son, but for you, free. Still at least you share my download pain. Misery loves company!!!!
  11. Three of us managed to take on an AO with only hand held weapons. We made good progress despite a lot of BMPS, and some tanks, URALs, Shilkas and technicals. We did better at locating targets rather than recon by death. The only choppers are lightly armed or unarmed, only one is good for getting the MHQ near the AO.
  12. I know, 75.7 GB to go, I might be able to play tomorrow. I think I am averaging 2.66gb an hour
  13. The dedicated server is up. It is currently running the CUP Domination on Chernarus that we have been playing. Not sure if its visible but its called Legion of Sparta, otherwise use the IP address and the usual password. I will try to get back into building the mission.
  14. Thanks Custard, I found the org and sent a request to join.
  15. I have the invite but how do I accept.
  16. The Sim will be launched August 18. The standard edition include my favourite general aviation plane, The TBM 930. You can watch this guy in a TBM 850 for take off and landing procedures as well as ATC. You can even fly his routes.
  17. The Nimitz mod is amazing. It has working elevators so I have been able to place the Spawn point and ammo crate below deck, as well as the road vehicles. As a result we can spawn on the ship, kit ourselves up, get in the vehicles, go to the flight deck and have a chopper lift us and take us in. Depending on our number we may need two vehicles and choppers. If vehicles are destroyed they will respawn at their original position. I will duplicate the vehicles at the Balota airfield and a respawn point there for us. Once this part is sorted this will be the starting template for missions, the I will start working on a enemy positions for the first mission. Cant be sure if this works until I test it on a server.
  18. I had another idea, for the arma part of the mission we will be carrier based. I have to check it out as a practical matter, ie can all the assets fit, is it easy to place units/ammo crate on the deck or below deck. The DCS portion of the mission does not have to be on a carrier, since not all of us have carrier capable aircraft. I will have a mess about with that this week. I am still trying to identify all of the lift capable choppers (not using script), so far I only have the Chinook and the Mi6, I will check on variations of the Blackhawk and the Merlin.
