Steam sale now on 70% off.



The F-15C is worth a punt at £2.09 just to zoom around the huge world at Mach 2.5+ (1,650+ mph)

I just bought the f-15c and I am definitely up for flying around in it, it's so nimble and fast unlike the A-10 I'm used to :scared-shocked:

You can also go much higher than the A10. Over the weather. :clap:

Set the weather for stormy, take off and go vertical until you break through the cloud layer into the sun above. :thumbup:

Those interested post up what DCS plan you want to take up and I will ensure the mission has enough of everything..

Between xmass and new year might suit me best. Id like to fly the f15c, but wont be able to shoot anything down. So if we are for killing stuff, the a10c for me.

Right I'm in the process of downloading DCS:World and I purchased Flaming Cliffs 3, which includes:

F-15C, A-10A, Su-27, Su-33, MiG-29A, MiG-29S and Su-25.

Do I need anything else?

Will my Thrustmaster Hotas T Flightstick be adequate for it?

Can I have some flying lessons please? :whistle: :D

Jah is the only one of use using the stupid expensive stick, the rest of us are all using the Thrustmaster HOTAS and apart from there being a lack of buttons on it, it is totally possible to enjoy the sim with that stick.

The big pain in the arse with DCS is that you can't go into the options while flying, so setting up buttons on the stick and getting the curves right is a total pain - as you have to exit to the main menu, change your options and re-enter the game. So best to set up a basic mission on your own where you start with engines going on the runway first, easier to get everything right first.

Will be easier to have lessons from someone with the same jets as you too.....

I have:

F-15C - but never flown it yet
A-10C - main aircraft with fully clickable cockpit
P51-D - fully clickable cockpit
HUEY - fully clickable cockpit
P51-S - free version everyone gets - not flown
SU-25 - free version everyone gets - not flown

I guess the A-10's are similar speed etc, so take off and landing could be taught, as I said I have not set-up/flown the F15 yet.

I believe all of those except the Huey are included with the FLaming CLiffs 3 DLC, which I'm currently downloading. I'll get the huey too. When you say "fully clickable cockpit" does that mean you use your mouse to click on the switches on screen?

i got the new Mig-21 bis so if i can get the time in i will join you.

i can fly the F-15 but haven't used any of the weapons or radar for a while so would probably end up in a a-10 if we do some missions
