Nighthawk,

Double check your "settings" for the "keys", make sure that you are pressing the correct key to transmit. Also when you log in to multiplayer sessions there is a button for turning on the communications, make sure it is checked. Make sure your mic works on other programs like windows voice record, etc.

One of the better videos about carrier flying. Informative......watch the velocity vector near the end you will see it go up and out of the landing wire area, and it becomes a bolter. educational. Also for us Tomcat flyers, notice the "Yaw String" on the nose, I wish they had that in FSX.

Landing on an Aircraft Carrier (3 min 58 sec)

Hey JT,

This is what I'm talking about, you notice that the F-14 burners are much more impressive than the F-18. We need to get some fire out of these Tomcats.

Plus what Roger says, on mine it is just the Caps Lock key only. I'm also going to move mine over to the trigger key on the stick and try that.
Later

Goog luck Nighthawk, I moved mine to the Trigger on the stick. (Since I don't have a gun) why not. It is easy to fly and talk at the same time. We should be on tonight around 7:30 or 8:00

I came back on later and did some free flight without internet. Worked good. Here is my newest download the Cessna Cardinal, very nice flying plane. I need to download some more textures the green is not so pretty. The DC-3 flight at night (clear weather and in the future with full moon) from Norfolk NAS to Beufort MCAS. Take off at Norfolk is across a very busy 4 lane highway it was real cool at night. Sorry didn't think to take a pict.

JT,

Remind me what the "save thing" is? I got back form Orlando/Flagler Beach late last night and di not have the energy to fly. I'll be on tonight though.


P.S. Is that a different F-14 with the flames? I personnally am Not a big fan of the VX4-9 paint schemes, all black just don't get it. But to each his own.

A different version of the Tomcat. Look how different the cockpit looks.
