This is what happens when you put 2 DCS virtual pilots in real planes with instructors and fooking lasers. Air Laser Quest! Looks like fun........apart from the G-force bowl clenching grunting.

Problem is that none of us can host. DCS need to sort this dedicated server thing out. :oops:

DCS Sale is now on. for a week. http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/


DCS Version 1.2.5 is on the way and later this year they are releasing F-15C: DCS Flaming Cliffs which will have the same level of control as flaming cliffs(ie no clickable cockpit) but have the flight model etc of the DCS titles. I will defiantly be getting the f15c. Anyone getting the Huey? I am tempted but might hold off for the f15c.

I've just bought the Huey.... many hours of learning to come I guess....

I was tempted to get "Combined Arms" as it's only $11.99, really fancy some tank battles... Maybe next time...

Well I've had my first few flights in the Huey, first attempt didn't end so well but managed to land on the 2nd attempt, although it was on a massive runway and not a tight little heli-pad...

Start up is easy enough but getting and keeping a hover is pretty bloody hard....

Might not look like much but this was one of the hardest things I've ever done in any computer game and was soooooooo chuffed I made it down on first attempt..... (although it took about 15 mins of very near misses and an amazing amount of concentration)

Finally got the huey and mustang up for a flight last night. Managed to take off and nearly land on my first go. Rolled over on the landing. Getting the rudder to counter the main rotor rotation is really hard. Rudder peddles help. Wouldn't fancy it with a twist stick :mrgreen: Going to take allot of practice.

The Mustang is much more flyable. I haven't tried taking off and landing. But its a nice plane to just fly around.

Nice videos of a mission involving A10s & the Huey. The videos are of the mission bellow. Scan through the brief before watching videos. Great stuff.
