Struggling with the F-16 INS in DCS World? These videos might help

Matt Wagner from Eagle Dynamics has released two videos on his YouTube channel recently that cover some changes and updates to the F-16 INS (inertial navigation system) that may be tripping some virtual pilots up. If you’ve been having trouble, check one or both of these videos out!

INS NORM and Stored Heading alignments

There are two types of INS alignment that are covered in the latest video and they come on the heels of various updates to the DCS: F-16C as Eagle Dynamics adds more layers of detail to the fourth generation multirole jet fighter. The first is called the INS NORM Alignment and this 5 minute video covers the basics of how to do the update and where it fits into the start-up process.

And coming on the heels of the first video is a second video covering something called the stored INS Alignment video. Matt made one or two mistakes in that first video and so the second video covers that as well as the Stored INS update.

    The GRs have a great start-up video (and lots of others):

      Did they do it before or after the INS update?

        Good point, I think before.

        Some changes to the system in the most recent open beta thus Matt needing to do some updates. I’m sure GR will do an update soon too! I see Cap flying the F-16 a fair bit!

    I put-off buying it for several reasons, but caved a few days ago. I love it! Cold start is easy, great to fly, simple to land, cockpit makes sense. The view is incredible – it’s like an A-Wing in the sky!

    Working now on my nav skills before starting weapons.
