Such anger scout. I hope that one day you will fly a real aircraft and find out what it's all about.
I figured out why more current and former military pilots dont play flight sims the day I marked hours in my log book under Pilot In Command. Flight sims are to damn un realistic and they haven't been any fun for years.
All the real pilots are off playing quake. And that aint no lie. It's the sad truth.
Our hobby for 90% of the last 5 or 6 years has not only been un realistic, it isn't any fun either. Oh there have been a few fun ones since US Navy Fighters. MiG Alley, European Air War, and that's about it. If you are taking the simulation hobbie the least bit seriously, treating it as a substitute for the real thing, you are diluting yourself.
I started flying for real 2 years ago, but it hasn't dawned uppon me till now how sorry some of the people in this hobbie are till now. They really do think that the "games" they play are a fair representation of what flying is about and insult those that dont share their views.
I'm not going to blow smoke up your *** about how good the aircraft FM where in MiG Alley and European Air War. They aren't terribly good compared to real life, but neither are any of the other flight models in any of the other flight sims. At best I'd say they probably mimic the characteristics of the real aircraft decently and that's all that matters to me. Those flight sims where fun and they did it as good as any other sim out there.
Janes F/A-18 wasn't fun, infact the flight model is equally as bad as any pixelogic or novalogic sim out there.
I'm just here to play John Fogerty's centerfield while simming and ice a few nazi's and commies
Occasionally I play some Led Zeplin to
So be cool and try to have some fun with your little toy sims, I certainly do.
