I enjoy Fast Jets just fo rthe Thrill. But overall I like the planes I fly in the real world. Diamonds, Cessnas, Pipers, Beechcraft, etc. I like to fly flights where I have been also. From Florida to North Kentucky and back.

But I'll fly anything anywhere for fun.

why am i here???????
so do you all run just a yoke or stick and use the keyboard to run the other functions or do you have all the add ons you can get for it like the switch boards and stuff like that? cause that stuff gets expensive fast. i would have over 1200 bucks with everything.

I use an old Microsoft Force Feedback II that I have had for years. Everything else is Keyboard. It works and is paid for or free. I use real money to fly real airplanes.......or models.

I managed a major computer overhaul last year, built FSX specific.......
Forgot all about upgrading the controller, still using a raider force feedback I found at habitat for humanz for $3!
But it works!

Just had a reminder concerning internet connections...........
CHECK YOUR CABLES!!!!!
I got bumped off & diagnostics said it was my modem,

A quick cleanup with scotchbrite & back together....TaDaa!

Sounds like a plan there Traxxas13. What kind of monitor do you use? I have a 22 inch but I think soon I will switch out to a 32" HDTV. I used to have a yoke combo, but it started getting sticky and did not have good movement, so I canned it for the old Force Feedback usit I use now. Some day I may get the Seitek yoke and throttle set.
