 8)     Well, that was a good first look from a few perspectives.  His next video is a commercial jet flight, so I don't think I'll post it here.  You can go to his channel and see it if you want to.   ;)

Currently, I am using Xplane 11 for VFR in France, P3D V5 for RTMM.
But frankly, I have access to a certain alpha, I don't see myself relaunching P3D after August, especially since the milviz beaver is not compatible with the last version.

So I don't know what to vote for :)
I need a little more perspective.
It sounds like you should vote P3Dv5, as that is your RTMM sim.   ;)

Doug, can we get this thread pinned to the top, please?

     I thought I'd share a video that Squirrel just put out.  A first look in widescreen HD of the upcoming MSFS2020.  I am about to watch it . . . enjoy it with me!   :)

 ???  Does this mean we only have 34 or so (active) members?  If you've voted already, thank you.   8)
Voting is still open to all, even guests.   :P

Hi Don,
     I've also used the same Saitek ProFlight Yoke & Rudder Pedals System and Throttle Quadrant as Rod for years now.  The yoke's short rotation has never been an issue for me.  Turning should be a gentle operation with small movements, right?
     I did add a Saitek Cessna Trim Wheel to my setup, and I can't/won't fly without it.  It is so nice to roll the wheel in your fingers and balance the trim as the plane levels off and the speed stabilizes.  The quadrant is the same size/shape as the throttle quadrant, which it is mounted next to. 
     For additional buttons, I mounted my XBox360 Controller to it via velcro strips atop the center of my flight yoke.  It sits comfortably above the clock display Rod described, which I use all day, every day (. . . not just while flying, of course.) 
     The only wear issue I have is the rudder pedal slider track has broken in the center.  I can still use it fine, but it has a sticky spot where the break is.  I put slats of wood under the sides for support, and that helps a lot.
     I use a "Wheel Stand Pro" frame to mount my yoke and pedals.  I also have a second one which supports my G27 steering wheel setup.  I highly recommend those frames over flying your desk.  I got rid of my desk, because I never used it, except to set things on and drawers for storage of forgotten items.  Too much clutter for no reason. 
     Good luck in your search, Sir.

Hello RTMM,
     What sim are we all flying around in?  I want to ask the RTMM community to come to their census, and share what flavor of sim we all use. 

Indicate which sim you use in the poll above.  ::) 

Thanks.

It's a beautiful day to vote.  ;)
