  2. Chris, Other than an obscure logo in the top right corner of the attached video, your announcement doesn't explicitly state which simulator versions the product is compatible with. With the majority of the current focus of major 3rd party development on MSFS, this can be misleading. I had to go to your Forum release announcement and then to your online shop before I confirmed it is only compatible with the legacy flight sims, and then only the later versions of P3D at that. I might further add that this is further contradicted by the labeling on the top of the product image which dis

  5. What have I done...or got myself into? Decisions, decisions, and even more decisions!!! I blame myself and my OCD, though I cannot be sure if it is the real version or just the Hollywood version...which up until a few years ago, I never knew there was a difference. OK, so the 1:48 scale Airfix kit I received from my daughter somewhat set the baseline for my decisions on scale. My first self imposed rule, therefore, was that I decided 1:48 scale was a good scale for fighters and the old venerable 1:72 scale would be good for bombers or larger aircraft, generally. My logic was that this w

  7. A 21 yr military career where I was moving every two yrs followed by a 10 yr career as a senior executive was never conducive to model building. Now I have the time and the patience that comes with age to be very meticulous. In fact, my professional life was characterised by exacting standards and attention to detail and I'm finding these skills have transferred to my model building as second nature. Another thing from my professional life which holds true in model building is a variation of an original quote by the German Field Marshall, Erwin Rommel, "Time spent in planning is seldom wasted!
  8. Introduction It seems nearly a lifetime ago now when Honeycomb Aeronautical invaded the psyche of the flight simulator community, tempting us with the announcement on the development of their Alpha Flight Controls. After a few years delay, due to Honeycomb refining the design, the community was finally rewarded with the first dedicated and reasonably affordable yoke and switch panel in more than a decade since the launch of the Saitek Pro Flight range. Following on, Honeycomb announced the development of the Bravo Throttle Quadrant, and the flight simulator community was further whipped i
