Support overload. We are currently seeing 65% more demand for support then we normally see. We can only assume this is because more people are at home due to the corona crises. Our complete support staff is online and they are working flat out, but it will take some days before we can scale up resources. Please be patient.

Outstanding release THANX

Albeit, I can no longer strap on heavy metal anymore ! A LITTLE IMPRESSION OF MY FIRST FLIGHT: Flight loads in Hotbox MCAS Beaufort, S.C. for a short flight of 455 miles north to Rickenbacker ANG base Columbus, OH. I kept my eyes closed as I hit the "S" button for external view to do my walk around..... A word for my first view was AWESOME great art.. a Few small graphics nics, but nothing to complain about... so I return to the cockpit, and I automatically fly through the Bronco pre-flight that had ben burned into my brain from 2346 hours of seat time. In nothing flat, I KNEW it was something special when I hit the start button, and heard a familiar whine.... and when things came to life, and I started rotating through the electricals, and Radio pre-call settings, I was thoroughly impressed, and once again had a familiar feeling in the pit of my stomach..... but that was NOTHING after I gave a taxi call and tickled the left throttle to come around to the right, and taxied to takeoff position . IF I CLOSED MY EYES, and a little imagination later.... as the maintenance shed passed me by in a blur, I had reached rotation, and gently pulled back on the stick, the transition from ground roll to flight had come and gone...... once again I was ATO, and begin my ascent to 9700 feet for a slow 185 knot flight... completed my checklist, and went through my safety routine of gauges........... vision around the aircraft, and begin scanning for other aircraft within my line of flight....... I cannot explain how I truely felt, It has been so so many years.......... The sound, and the feel of this pc generated flight brought many, many emotions back........... I cannot believe someone thought enough to make a computer aircraft about as real as you can within flightsims guidelines.... God has truely blessed me this christmas with this aircraft, the nomenclature of some items may be a little different, but all in all it was a DAMNED OUTSTANDING PIECE OF SOFTWARE. I will await in angst for the upcomming releases. BUT please.... remove the GPS, If we had one of these back then many would have taken a hammer to it....... signed J R Ferrell Capt USMCRet

Thank you for the kind words. This is probably the most rewarding accomplishment that I could hope to achieve as a developer. I hope it continues to live up to your standards, and please don't hesitate to throw out some suggestions (particularly related to the flight mechanics) if they arise.

I Only have 2. 1. The Bronco was designed for quick escape ..... so a 70 degree turn was not out of the ordinary, I had problems with the yaw, while makeing a full military turn to port, starboard was just fine. 2. On my night check ride, it seems their was a black shadow, all through the cockpit (maybe alpha) it created a vision problem in that you had No distinction of inside /outside. The term "On a clear nite, you casn see forever is true in aviation. p.s. My grandchildren think I have gone bananas. So you guys have done everything right. ooooooops forgot about the sound. btw I applaud the job you did with the warnings like when bringing the throttle back to the stops, you get the flashing gear transition light. with the gimbles warning. here was the sound problem, while descending for final to KCMH, as my altitude dropped just under 6k feet, the sound suddenly went from normal above feather, the jet whine came in, and sound did not return to normal till I went to flaps, down and dirty for landing. my specs are Dell 2.2gig WinXPPro, nVidia GTX7600vid, FX2kCreative labs sound total 5gig in/outmem.......... Further.....when you appreciate something it is hard to make a complaint..... again thank you for an outstanding piece of work

Would one of you guys give me an email, I could send you a file for your upcomming release. a long time ago while doing corrections on Tim Conrads Bronco, I created some files from original photos, and memory to use his bird.......... I would like you guys to have these files for your upcomming release. one of them is the gunsight ! It would be my honor, for you guys to use as you see fit, If it would enhance your work. also a Special Paint I think is easy... and would be a great paint to add to your civil BroncoX ...............
