So it took a few years more than planned, but today our control loading system was finally installed in the Sim.
Initial testing was fantastic, but looking forward to spending a few hours getting hands-on with them this week (only got about 5 minutes today).

Big shout out to @Mickc for his assistance in recent months getting the F/O column running properly/smoothly. I don't think there is a nicer / more talented builder anywhere on the planet! :)

Over the years, the bar just keeps getting higher.

I doubt if I will ever reach that level of sophistication.
Congratulations on you achievement!

I feel that way when I see other people with rear circuit breaker panels and jump seat, or plumbed in air-conditioning, or active rudder pedals, or motion platforms!
The bar just keeps getting higher and higher all the time.

My next dream is 4k projectors combined with the new MS 2020 visuals and weather/flight models :)

Hi folks,
I thought I would post a video of the new flight controls in action.
The video is 10 minutes long, but the first minute or two shows some good examples of the control wheel movement whilst CMD mode is active.
I am really enjoying the added level of immersion that comes from seeing the wheel moving by itself during the flight.
Also, the added feel that is coming from the variable forces on the elevator as speed increases is awesome. I flew it all the way to FL360 the other day just because it was fun :)

So after several years of not much new happening with the Sim, today we commenced a Project to upgrade to 4K projectors.
The old ones have been pulled out and we are making some adjustments to the ceiling cavity to accommodate the slightly larger size of the new ones.

Installation for projectors is scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday next week. Excited to see how it is going to work out.

HNY all.
Cheers,
Rob
