Hello everyone!

I'm new to Pacific Fighters. I've only had it a short time and find it fascinating! I have a couple questions/requests. Could someone out there post their settings for the Microsoft FF joystick and also what they have the aircraft controls, misc. controls, gunner/bomber controls, etc. set at? Thanks in advance for taking the time to help.

Cheers,
Jon

Hey, I took my son, Jonathan Purdey to Falcon Field a few years back to see a P-38 painted as Capt. John Purdy's Lizzie IV.

P.S. PurdEy is the accepted correct spelling (as in John Purdey and Sons Firearms).

P.S. Sorry for the double post. IE locked up on me. I thought my original post failed to go through so I typed it in again.
