hi,
watch this old warbird video files and let's think about more integration of
pilot's trainee into combatsims.

just a idea to get in more realistic procedures by preparing starts and landings http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

I'm looking forward to more motor and flight management at BoB

let's make a decision what's usefull to export to pc-combatsims

I hope BOB's controls don't feel like they do in FB+AEP+PF as they feel like fly by wire. When I fly MS FS2004 and then FB it feels totally different, yet both claim to be realistic. I've never flown a plane in real life but I'm sure that the old warbirds stick would fight you in some cases e.g. extreme manouvres like it does in FS 2004.

I dunno....

I flew an AT6 Texan years ago, it being the only "real life" flight experience I've ever had, and I was amazed at how light the stick forces were in that thing. It could be moved with basically two fingers of pressure (in level flight), and every PC joystick I've ever owned needed much more effort to move.

I'm sure if I'd still been controlling it during the higher-G maneuvers the pilot did during that flight, it might have been a bit stiffer, but still, I went into it thinking it would be a lot harder to move even in level flight.
