I’ve owned DCS: Flaming Cliffs 3 for more than a year now but my understanding of the sim and its basic systems is spotty. I’ve gotten into some pretty good dogfights in the quick mission builder and tried some of the single player but the honest truth is that I’m still pretty bad at the whole thing. Time to learn some modern aircraft systems!
It’s my first day…
Good at flying a World War II fighter but utterly lost in the sea of mechanical and digital flight controls on a modern jet – today I wanted to learn a little bit more. So I’ve done the first couple of modules on the Su27 as that is the only jet fighter (not attacker) interactive module I’ve been able to find.
So far I’ve done the takeoff and navigation tutorials and I’m doing ok. I’m binding controls as I go and slowly learning how to fly the Su27 Flanker in DCS Flaming Cliffs.
I’m still pretty interested in perhaps buying the Mirage 2000C module at some point as the idea of a small, delta wing, multi-role fighter is pretty appealing!
Anyways… on with the training!
