    Not if the plane is defective. Even an experienced pilot would have trouble with it.

    Yes, but I'm fairly certain the box that the simulator was delivered in does not say "Microsoft" on it.

    It is possible yes...and they may even have rudder pedals on them. In fact last time I flew a Cessna 172 it felt nothing like a simulator.

    Yes but what is amazing is that best pedal now over 133 km/h...and are able to produce 2 hp for brief period...with muscles that is.

    After we run outa oil..these will merge from the floor if the landing looks to be short of the runway.

    I can think of a member of two who have adopted a new handle to avoid embarrassment, but not one who has reemerged so shamelessly from banishment without consequence.

    I remember handleTopspeed100 from 10 years ago...a good friend of Martin Hollmann and a keen aviation enthusiast who tried to make even an space ship proposition here..I recall it meant flying to the space...not only with rocket power...but still using aerodynamical lift of the atmosphere. So you had some doubts about his sanity or what ?

    Are you trying to get banned by spamming all the threads with similar replys ?

    Banishment is your province, Topspeed100. I'll leave it to the mods.

    My comment was aimed at topspeed100, not everyone else. It's pure luck that I recently read that article myself, or I'd have been as clueless about topspeed's remarks as everyone else.

    Sanity was/is not the issue. Being a spamming pain in the butt is the issue.
