To listen to a Walkman in the pit while I'm flying with FFWD and RWD....you bet! This is the benchmark sim module for any sim available. I'm serious. Hands down THE BEST. MOST FUN. MOST INTERESTING, addon I've ever used. Jester AI is incredible! Visually it's the benchmark. Systems benchmark. Effects benchmark. Originality benchmark. Details benchmark. The wait - sucked. very impressed, is an understatement. I've never thought an addon was so good for any sim.

Yeah, I've heard that it's good. I don't know about getting it though, I'm not sure that I can give it the time that I need to learn the aircraft. My fps in DCS is less than stellar too... Oh and ED decided that if you're not on the internet all of the time you must have stolen the modules and so they lock you out... <_<

Me in the RIO POS with one of our groups members. What's amazing is that you can jump into multi crew ops on the fly during the mission. We were doing formation work and then decided that we wanted to test out SRS comms in multicrew ops. Ridiculous fun! Especially when the RIO plugs the walkman into the ICS!

Couldn't help smiling at the preflight checks for the bang seat
Is that done before the plane takes off, or before you take off through the canopy? :lol:

'Propliner' is actually short for 'Proper airliner, with big rumbly radials'

What's amazing is that as good as this looks visually.... What's under the hood, is just as astonishing as the visuals. This is in my opinion, THE benchmark sim ever created. The details and functionality are astounding.

For example, The AI RIO has over 6000 custom voice overs from everything from procedures to poking fun at your poor airmanship to random chit chat.
