Im seeing a pattern here. Babs goes off on oil rigs and spends his time convincing himself that he should buy new shiney things on his return. :thumbup:
Should have held off on the throttles done another rig and went for the hog.

UK Skins for A10c

I'm not sure if we all have to download these and select or I can force it in the mission file, but I've downloaded these to try out..

I don't think you can include a skin into a mission. Although ill download it as it will look good for vids.

Its quite easy to stick on the logo, I can do that anytime. It would be nice to have a some tail art with the logo in it somehow.

I agree, thinking the wild boar rather than the normal rip logo, that can go on the side by the cockpit. I also like the 11 sqd colour scheme from the UK pack above, would look better than the light grey default.

I don't intend to use the 3 throttle as throttles... I'm thinking black one is for under carriage, blue is flaps and not sure what to use the red one for yet. The switches on the front will be for nav lights/collision lights and anything else that might come to hand, maybe autopilot?

The rudder peddle have breaks on them too, so I shouldn't need to hardly touch my keyboard and all this still works out over £100 cheaper than that bloody expensive stick that Jah uses. :D

You still need the peddles even with the hog. So it a serious investment

Well I got my hog for £199, never seen it as cheep since. Its good value at that price, never seen build quality like it on a pc product, weighs a ton too.
Babs with that set up id recommend a ch stick to cap it all off. :D

Going through some boxes yesterday I found my crib notes for my dcs setup, so will be easier to remember how to use mavericks. Will post up the required order of presses soon for all to note for when we start shooting things soon. Although we all need to learn how to use the camera and setting and reading spi's first.

My new toys came today, has taken a few hours to get set-up and working in DCS although I can't get them working exactly as I wanted. The peddles are fine (although foot breaks where the wrong way around at first - off to break on to release) but I couldn't get the flaps and gear to work on the levers as I wanted, so have done a workaround until I can get the Sietek software to 'cheat' the game into thinking I am pressing buttons when moving the levers.

The breaks being reversed is a common bug with peddles, should have told you.
