Greetings,
Kinda new to these forums(1st post under this name),FB ordered,be in tomorrow,I hope.Been reading posts here since Dec.03 ,never played a flight sim,this forum sold me on the game.
A "GR" addict here,but love to fly ultralights,so into the virtual skies I'm headed.
From reading posts here I've also decided on a joystick (combo,MS ffb2 ,X45).
Thanks to all in forums and looking forward to becoming friends and having FUN.I know I'll have a lot of questions,that'll need answers after I get FB installed and patched.I can hardly wait to TRY to get "airborne".
Untill another question arises,Best Regards to all.

I thought"My oh my,how the sparks would fly,if that thing ever hit the ground"

Welcome Sparks. If you haven't already checked out the Sturmovik Essentials link at the top of the forum page, it's ... essential. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

"So when Diogenes perceived that he was greatly excited and quite keyed up in mind with expectancy, he toyed with him and pulled him about in the hope that somehow he might be moved from his pride and thirst for glory and be able to sober up a little. For he noticed that at one time he was delighted, and at another grieved at the same thing, and that his soul was as unsettled as the weather at the solstices when both rain and sunshine come from the very same source."

(Dio Chrysostom "Discourse" 4.77-78)

Hi, and welcome! Hope you´ll find the sticks you want for flying, though I´ve heard that the MS ffb is not manufacturated any more. Hope you´ll find it anyway.

It´ll probably take some tme to get use to the sim, but you will get it soon and then you´ll love it!!

See you out there! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Reading the forums sold Il-2/FB to you? Wow! I wish I could see the look on your face when you get flying http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
Welcome to the virtual skies, because this sim is the best.
Enjoy!

Welcome aboard! Glad you found an MS FFB2. I'm envious, since I have been trying to track down a good one for months now. So now I'm afraid I must hate you for thathttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif Good Luck. If you come across another stick let me know.

Welcome aboard M8! It is a hoot for sure. I like the FPS aswell but this is by far may favorite. I only play FPS when I start to get a bit of burn out. It alwys sends me packing back to fly http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Welcome! Sparks

I recall when i 1st flying the original IL2, it take me more than 20 times try to take off in any plane. And more than thousand time crash landing. I remenber i only manage to land properly for the 1st time was about a month later. (basically last time i didn't know that there's 3rd party website which teach you about basic flying.)

Just remenber 'Don't give up'. And try go to http://www.mudmovers.com/Sims/FB/il2_fb.htm for detail basic flying.

Happy hunting.

Speed is the KEY.
