    I'm flying...

    With a little help from FSUIPC I managed to get my controls properly calibrated and I'm actually getting to fly in my cockpit. I can't believe I have been simming for the past 5 years and I never thought to buy the full version of FSUIPC it's a great program...

    Tomorrow I'm getting a proper screen for the projector, my tan colored wall just isn't working.

    Thanks guys, it's great having the support here. The scenery is Georenders Alaska cinematic, if your into flying low and slow I can't recommend it enough.

    My wife wasn't really sure what I was talking about when I told her I was going to build a Turbo Commander simulator downstairs. When I build something for flight simulator it's usually in FSDS and she never has to see those aircraft She actually doesn't seem to mind it much though, except for when I got the autostart engine #1 and #2 buttons working. I had the volume control on the 7.1 dolbi surround sound cranked right up and started and shutdown the engines a couple dozen times yesterday.
