While performance tweaking CloD I did some missions and grabbed the E-3 with the Priller skin (thanks Oberon )

First I was like:

Then I was like having a chill flight back to base:



and then I was all like...

I'm glad you guys can get CoD to function right. I can't get the bloody game to hold configs. It hates my Warthog, my CH fighterstick even more. The software ignores deadzones that I either setup in game, or with my controllers' software. It looks great, but I have never had so many issues with a sim before. I would say it is hardware, but IL2 1946, A-10C, and BS all read my sticks correctly..

Good work Hunter, I must try landing with the 109, see how fragile that undercarriage really is

Hawk, yeah CloD is a intemperate mistress and it's questionable how much more support she is going to get after Battle for Moscow comes out, but there's a lot of promise there. I just wish I could get a few more frames out of her...but I think it's a OS issue (again).

That's why he was talking to Kurt Tank in this picture...talking about undercarriages and their wonderfull performances they show in the Lolwaffles. Hell we're the best pilots for designers like Kurt to make sure we test every part of the plane to it's maximum extend



I must say getting to understand the BF109 E3 a lot more how to use the right pitch in what I do (combat, cruise, landing) I really like to fly it.
Though I really must stop trying to get into turnfights with a spit...I ain't going to win that EVER!

Got into one a earlier with a Spit...but he didn't shot me down
we both spiralled down to very low altitude near the coastal cliffs as he was fighting to stay out of my sights I was fighting to keep the thing under my control as it tended to flip and spiral down into water...when I did lose it a bit I managed to recover the aircraft but unfortunately I did not recover from the smack I made into the cliffs of Dover that followed shortly after

The opportunities for this seem to have improved slightly, but we shall see what the spring brings, this time of year it's primarily sacrified to the Gods of the 1800s.



Yeah, our house still runs on coal heating...

Yes, we test every plane to destruction...and then beyond!

You crashed into the cliffs of Dover? We're going to have to fine you for littering, you know that...

You can always count on German engineering (look at that completely reversable rudder!), and the Lolwaffles to make full use of it

Nice shots CCIP. And I just noticed your down the road from me (401). Anyways do you just like US Airways or do you fly for a VA?

Good old 401 and all the time I've spent on it

It's sort of like my one-man VA - I always fly actual scheduled routes and use FSPassengers, and so it only made sense that I would want to get in on an airline and stick with it. I ended up semi-randomly picking US airways back in the day (liked their early 2000s livery on some of the first payware planes I bought), and have since flown 400+ hours on Boeing and Embraer jets doing their routes. I keep meaning to add Airbus to that list, but keeping my skills sharp in even a couple of complex planes is enough work!

I might join an actual VA someday, but I like the flexibility of managing my own rules.

Ofcourse I know that...

I was reffering to undercarriages in general.

Good to see the Lolwaffle traditions being upheld.
