Re: How long have YOU been in YSF?

If my memory serves me correct I first downloaded YSF in fall of 1999 when my daughter was born. She now plays YSF and flies RC with me using her YSF skills. Thank you Soji.

Re: Wingzfan99 is moving on.

Not even married yet and his new gal is making him get rid of all his friends and hobbies? Just kidding. We haven't seen the last of Wingzfan99, we will leave the key under the rug for you. Drop in anytime.

Re: Ørb# For YSFlight [Alpha-29Sep13]

Is there a TLDR version of what exactly this does for users and how to use it without 20 minutes of talk about packets and protocols? Love ya, but I glassed over about 3 min in. I just had my first experience with Orb on the 42South server. There are no player names and removes the feeling of commun...

Re: Art of the Kill - Aerial Combat Guide Video

YES! I used to have Art of the Kill, still have the manual in a box in the shed. The most comprehensive dogfighting sim I have ever played. It included videos, tutorial flights/fights. It taught you geometry, physics, assymetric ACM, wingman tactics you name it. Great manual, I am going to go dig fo...

Re: New and improved YSFlight wishlist

There is a chat function, press 0 and type away. There is autopilot press delete to open the menu. Options include takeoff, landing, circling, and alt/heading hold. Reread more carefully. That's not what I said. I didn't say there wasn't a chat function. I said I want more options. (Like reading ch...

Re: New and improved YSFlight wishlist

Physics for me too. Yes the performance, especially lift/drag is ridiculous. This makes YS dogfighting like guitar hero is to actual guitar. Airliners that can do mach 1.1+ but stall at 60-100 knots? Chop the throttle on a WW2 plane and enjoy gliding for 20 min? Pulling 50+Gs, blackout or not? Pitch...

Re: What do the VA's want?

Google shows the flight as being about 2500 miles. That's still pretty easy at the right alt and speed. I know the stock 747 will clear 12,000 NM!

Re: What do the VA's want?

HawaiitoSoCal works like a charm for me. Best VA map I have seen since....ever. I get to fly from my home airport (Long Beach) to the well known Hawaii map while doing homework. I keep the Ganja Gang alive with shipments back to SoCal from Maui. I love it this map with wind as it gives good navigati...

Re: What is the best VA Map?

HawaiitoSocal has it all. From short hops to epic two hour fuel squeezing runs you can do your homework to. I would really like to see this map get popular with hosts.

Re: That Drachenfire guy.

Yeah, I do alot of goofy show off novelty stunts in YSFlight for the fun of it. Why not. You will see me alot in a stock 747, A-10 or my beloved Ganja Mirage (swoon!). Yes all the 'Drachensomething' names are me when the house is empty. :shock: YS is my chill time thing. :D

Re: That Drachenfire guy.

Aww shucks, thanks for the warm welcome back. Yeah, been busy busy in school and with the fight business. Currently on Xmas break so I decided to bust out some YSFlight again. It's good to be back and knock the rust off. Love goofing off on the servers. See you there!

Married, redhead, two great midgets, one licking lab. Grew up in SoCal in the 1980's-90's GA, Naval aviation, homebuilt...
