To assuage any fears that my superior American qualities () will overshadow the capabilities of your German, British, English, Finlandish and other Europeeuhn members, I must admit that I can't fly a plane to save my own ass. When it comes to flight sims, my handle implies everything that it means: *KRASH*

I can crash a plane just as well as the next guy.

Can you stall Zeppelins? That is Oberons quality criteria for new pilots.

I think I might have come close. I up-ended the Graf Zeppelin in X-Plane.

Ah, well, close enough. I guess that passes the Zeppelin test.

Looks like it will be a couple of months before I can join. I spent way too much money on fishing gear this month, and I'm going to have to have the brakes looked at/possibly replaced on my truck. The wifi will have to wait.

Brakes are overated!
Hope to fly with you soon. Although your fishing gear may come in handy after crashing into the nearest patch of water.

My first truck I drove with bad brakes for close to two years. The rear drums were worn so bad the insides were egg-shaped. Braking after coming off the interstate made the whole vehicle shudder. Finally got those fixed and it smoothed the ride out quite a bit.

So I know ahead of time, is it a requirement to fly with the realism settings maxed? For the moment I fly without engine overheating/mixtures/etc.

We fly at full real except the navigation. But don't worry, engine management really isn't that hard in Il2.
