By sending a months dues to HTC. As to that, I am taking the family to New Zealand where we intend to resettle. I may not be back in the game, but I do intend to continue making updates to the sound pack. At some time I will explain how it's all done.

You know we have OK internet here in NZ. It is still possible to play hahahaha

I'm retired from sitting at a desk.

Heh.....well I  was forced by my doctors into disabled and couldn't continue to work so I  guess  I  am  semi-retired from sitting at a desk since 2009....these past 5 years have been the worst because it only takes almost 30 minutes sitting playing AH when it begins to become unbearable and the pain in my neck, spine,  right  rotator cuff  and right leg starts getting to me....

I  don't really like playing all liquored up, or having to take extra pain medication just to play,  so I have to manage what how and when I can play these days

Then when  I am playing and the cervical spinal stenosis becomes a real witch, because my brain is telling my hands arms feet to do this or do that yet the delay can be anywhere from 2 to 10 seconds before the nerve signal reaches its destination...too funny...can only  sit back and laugh at it these days....not worth getting upset over it

Best of luck on your move and wish for y'all a safe transition

More of a Fly fisherman, Red Stag hunter, and golfer than anything else, now. My wife is happy to golf with me now that my game is suffering.

Curious as to what each aircraft’s flight manual states about fuel balance with regard to out of control flight events.

Late to the party.

From the Spit XIV pilot's notes.  The XIV had the same fuel set up as the Mk VIII with the small leading edge fuel tanks to go with the upper and lower tanks right behind the engine.  Because of the increased fuel burn of the Griffon Spits they always flew with at least a 30 gallon slipper tank to make up the range difference.  This started with the Spit XII.

The attached image is from the Spit XIV pilot's notes.  Fairly self explanatory.  Spinning prohibited with a DT on, otherwise the same recovery as the other Spits

In my limited experience, everything about the Spit14 is "erratic."  Spit 14 and Spit 1 are the two Spitfires that are challenging to fly, and I admire people who can succeed in either one of them.

I've honestly never seen a player fly a spit14 regularly in my time. I believe there is a solid reason for that. Was happy when he unperked it, but not sure why the spit16 didn't replace it. Every time I fly the damn thing I rip my wings off. Forget the stall  :rofl

What is the measure of greatness in the Ta152? I mean my kill streak went as high as 300:1 (more actually, as I still haven't died).


That's impressive I'll say, but damn that must be a super long flight hahaha. Commend for you for those patience. I tried a similar thing in a Temp (for a tour)  but it pains me to extend from fights I might have a chance at winning with low E but know my plane could not perform better if the pilot in the other knew what he was doing.
