  • I have done some public speaking and classroom training but I've never tried to present a polished video here. All mine are off the cuff and not rehearsed or scripted. Obviously. I don't want to do any of that but I do want to have a clear voice recording capability.

  • Compression will make it less important to be the perfect distance from the mic.

    Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies, The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. — C.S. Lewis

  • Your mic works fine, but you're still speaking in cursive...

    “Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it's yours.”

    ―Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

  • Apache is looking real good. Wop wop wop wop. I wish Superpug was still around here.


    The new Virpil collective stick is working great for me right now, perfect timing since the Hind was released, and with the upcoming Apache. I've been flying the Huey a lot with the new collective stick, it's a whole different feeling than using the old throttle in reverse as I've been doing with helo sims for decades. You can mess with the tension settings with the collective base, and get it dialed in so it'll hold and stay wherever you pull it to. There are 3 different cams, and I've just stuck with the standard one they install before shipping, it has the least amount of throw, and it's where I like it.


    I'm using the Sharka-50 grip -the only dedicated helo type one you can buy right now, but you can attach any other stick to it if you want- hopefully the Apache unit they say they are working on comes out soon too. The only crap thing is they didn't apply any of the decals, they sent both commie and English sets, and you have to apply them yourself, and it can be a little tricky to get into some spots under some of the hats and switches.

  • Check for the CH force feedback stick too Iron. I have one that they sent us for review back in 1999 @combatsim.com. It's excellent, easily the best FFB of the FFB era IMO. Has the Fighterstick, grip, and a base that is about say 50% larger than the regular Fighterstick base, and about 1 inch higher as well.


    I see them come up now and then, I'll keep an eye out for both up here in Canada for you too if you like.

  • Set up a mission for my brother during his recent visit and then I flew it. 1 Hornet vs 3 flights of Migs, 2 Migs each flight, Mig-23s, Mig-25s, and Mig 31s. Got all the Migs and ran out of fuel 2 or 3 seconds after I touched down back at Anderson. I tried to record the playback track but it lost sync and shows me crashing into the ocean early on which didn't happen. Figured this would be a good opportunity to show TacView which is a great tool for analyzing a flight.
