Thread: Topsy's Sim Kit test in DCS - new video

    Default Topsy's Sim Kit test in DCS - new video

    At last managed to shoot a video showing me in cockpit and the screen in front so that we can see the controls and flight at the same time.

    https://youtu.be/VFgisQyLwK8

    What's amazing is that having crashed 100's of Spitfires in DCS while trying to master t/o's and landings using my TM Hotas X flight stick, with my Spit Sim kit I have been able to make several t/o's & ldg's in a row without even banging a wing ! Quite a feat for me !

    If you watch the vid you'll see I did an almost perfect 3-point landing, a feat which I am able to repeat quite often.

    OK, OK I know it's my gear ! But it has really changed my life in DCS, which I can now start to enjoy rather than fear making a balls-up !

    Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to he was sane and had to.
