I've tried a couple of tiimes with both F16 and C130 miltary AI. I have never tried flying online with others and to be honest, don't know how it works, but would be very interested to give it a go.

Most of my military aircraft are the big transports and refuellers (C130, VC10, C17, C141, KC135, Sentry, Nimrod, Victor and Tristar), but I do have an excellent F16 and A10.

They are pretty hard. The F-18's are pretty easy tho, they just kill your frames like that if you're flying with that one from FS KBT

is that the one with Eagles CO and about 25 others?

i find a-10's are pretty easy as are b-52's

that would be the one.

also, the project fokker models are great for that kind of stuff. they should improve the autopilot a little bit though

have you tried the f-16 by kirk olafsson can't fault it for keeping a decent frame rate especially when recording

Pro Member First Officer

I record directly to a DVR so I see no drop in frames during recording. but yes, they are consistent. they're hard tho because I have to keep adjusting the trims lol 😂

I have the F16 (VIPER) by Kirk Olsson. Excellent looking aircraft and handling! My favourite 'bird' has to be the Tupolev TU-95 Bear by a guy called V.Zhyhulskiy. Brilliant sound, looks and feel when flying this beast!!

If it's Saturday it may be awkward for me during the day, as I run my own business. If it's at night however then it should be OK, as long as the other-half doesn't want to go out or watch a film etc!!

Teamspeak2 worked pretty good for me a while back. Just have to have your mike turned on and assign one key to activate it when you want to talk.

I love the F-14 when you're flying with someone in formation. there's a lot of stuff that you can do and they do it all

my only problem with teamspeak is from playing bf2142 and bf2 when it seemed to lag a bit but aint that life lol

You will have to run through on how to set things up, as I've never done this before. I have a pair of Skype headphones and microphone, I assume this will be OK. It just plugs into a USB connection.

PM me when your ready.
