Any ideas on a name for our collection of misfit airmen?
Blue has kindly agreed to make some artwork and skins for the A10c & F15c. But we will need some sort of name or code or something.
Some inspiration: http://www.airfighters.com/photosearch. ... andTailArt

This is insane. Check out the plane hovering 10m off the runway on its end. No VTOL required. :o

I hate to tell you mate, but it's mostly radio controlled planes with jet sounds edited in over the top. Some of it is real jets, but only flying pretty straight & level, the rest is just rc. :|

boo. though it might be suss when I couldn't pick out what type of jet it was. I didn't recognise it. Its a mix up of the fighting falcon and the XPlane test plane. The second SU was real. RC don't create that amount of wash.

Playing with the SU-25 plane today and enjoying it. Which planes should I consider buying from the sale if I want to join in on the Wednesday night missions?

Shas: We mainly fly
F15c=fast mover and medium to learn.
A10c=CAS and hard to learn.

Has anybody got any tutorials/links/resources for tips on missile avoidance in the F15? I've pretty much got takeoff/landing, navigation, SARH and ARH missiles, IR missiles and using BVR and WVR modes, LRS/TWS/STT/Flood modes on the radar as well as interpretting the RWR, oh and I've done some VERY low level flying (under 100 ft!). I'm working through the single player campaign and missions against enemy AI pilots, but my problem is, I still keep getting shot down, usually by IR missiles because there's no launch warning.

Does anybody have any links/videos/tutorials/resources or just plain advice or tips on missile avoidance?

Also, I downloaded some video tutorials from flankertrainin9.com (jah posted a link somewhere) but where do Ithink they have to be viewed in-game, so where do I put them?

Thanks

I was watching this video and see he is running mods. Went through the description in the video and downloaded a few mods.


I am giving these mods a go and see if/how they hit my performance. I am using JSGME to run the mods.

Aye I had a look but not all parts of the pit have been converted to HD and those that have been don't really add anything to the game play or make it any easier to read...

Having a look around online for online play we should have our settings:

If you are hosting select LAN

If you are a client select ADSL 2048

My first flight out in the Hawk. Nice jet to fly, very stable, can do some really tight turns. Not as fast as I thought but more nippy. Can see why its a trainer and the red arrows jet of choice.
