Saitek X-52 Throttle Axis Problems

Saitek X-52 Throttle Axis Problems

It’s been a fair few days since I’ve posted anything or flew any DCS for that matter owing to a Saitek X-52 Throttle Axis Problem I’ve got. Basically, since I’ve owned my X-52 Pro it has had a strange behavior that I couldn’t put my finger on. When flying in DCS, every so often my view would jump about randomly and then settle back down […]

Arduino: Active Model Rocket Stabilisation

Arduino: Active Model Rocket Stabilisation

This is a prototype Arduino based Active Model Rocket Stabilisation system built by me. The idea behind the design is to keep any model rocket that is fitted with this system vertical and stable during flight. Currently only one servo and fin are installed but later, there will be three or even 4 fins incorporated into the prototype to ensure the rocket remains stable in […]

Bailed Out at 27,000 Feet!

Lovely evening and what better way to make the most of that beautiful sunset than to step outside and take it all in. Of course the slamming of an R-27ER into my beloved F-15C played no part in my decision – honest 😀  

Check Out My Personal Favorite DCS Aircraft & Modules Below:-

  • F-15C Eagle

    The F-15 Eagle is an American twin-engine, all-weather tactical fighter designed by McDonnell Douglas to gain and maintain air supremacy in aerial combat. It is among the most successful modern fighters, with over 100 victories and no losses in aerial combat with the majority of the kills by the Israel Air Force.

  • P-51D Mustang

    The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang is an American long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during World War II, the Korean War and other conflicts. The Mustang was conceived, designed and built by North American Aviation (NAA) in response to a specification issued directly to NAA by the British Purchasing Commission.

  • KA-50 Black Shark

    The Kamov Ka-50 "Black Shark" is a single-seat Russian attack helicopter with the distinctive coaxial rotor system of the Kamov design bureau. It was designed in the 1980s and adopted for service in the Russian army in 1995. It is currently manufactured by the Progress company in Arsenyev. It is being used as a heavily armed scout helicopter.

  • Combined Arms

    Combined Arms gives you control of ground forces during the battle. Use the Command Map to move ground forces, set artillery fire missions, and control the ground battle. Assume the role of a Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) in multiplayer and designate targets for player-controlled close air support aircraft, or directly control armor vehicles or air defense weapons and engage the enemy.
