Mustang!

Written by Phil on . Posted in Combat Flight

 

All i have been doing lately with regards to anything simulation is DCS stuff. No apologies , it really is the best stuff out there at the moment for just the shear joy of flying from the desktop. I have to admit and as you can see from previous posts I found the P-51 Mustang to be a bit underwhelming but after getting into the manual and reading about this awesome aircraft i have top say this is slowly becoming a favourite. The flight model is superb. Of course i have never flown any aircraft but this one really makes me feel like i am flying and creates that all to elusive illusion of doing just that. If you haven’t already got it and are just thinking about it, stop that now and buy it!

I was doing some low level flying in the hills this evening.

Easy CBU-97 tutorial.

As promised I made a very quick and easy CBU-97 tutorial for the DCS A10. No cuts it’s all live so you can see the mistakes I make. Nothing to technical but a quick handy reminder and guide to get you going. Next time I’m going to make a more in depth version with the intention of showing how you can use the on board computer to allow for wind correction.

 

DCS A-10c CBU Quick Tutorial

I am in the process of making a quick and easy tutorial on how to deploy the CBU-97 in DCS A-10c. I have noticed quite few hits on this blog come from people doing searches with this particular weapon. So if I can help then great!

Watch this space and it should be up in a day or so.

 

 

DCS P-51 Mustang

I had to get it. I have been looking at getting this from DCS for awhile now. It’s not a full World War 2 environment it’s just the Mustang within DCS World and that’s why i was reluctant to get it. However i made the plunge a few days ago and i have had a few flights. It is great to fly and it feels like the best WW2 era plane i have ever flown. I have to admit and even though i knew this beforehand i am disappointed there are no missions to test your skills in. I can easily set something up in the awesome mission editor but i am lazy and want all that done for me. Anyway i am far from mastering this great aircraft and will return hopefully with great dogfight stories from the multiplay viewpoint. That i think is where it’s strength lies.

 

A-10 DCS Home Pit

Getting back into the DCS series of simulations. This is my humble set-up for the A-10. It includes.

  1. iControl DCS (iPad App)
  2. Cougar MFDs
  3. Warthog HOTAS
  4. TrackIR
  5. Momo steering wheel pedals as the rudder pedals.

It all works really well and it doesn’t actually take a lot to set it all up.
