Experience: [...] I play Digital Combat Simulator (DCS), and can fly the SU-25t Frogfoot to its full potential (this means that I can engage ground targets with laser guided, laser riding, rocket, gun and radar/ antiradar guided payloads, start up, take off and land, etc). I can also partially operate DCS's most realistic model, the A-10c. [...] All in all, is this enough experience to even get me started with FG?

Johan G wrote in Fri Feb 17, 2017 1:20 pm:One ATC etiquette thing we all forgot to mention: When starting from a controlled airport most ATCs will be rather frustrated if you spawn on the runway threshold, like FlightGear usually do. To get around this, start FlightGear in offline mode at the selected airport, taxi to a parking spot and then enable multiplayer.

I have an auto-ignore-this-callsign list, and excessively doing this is one of the quickest ways on to my list.
If someone wants target practice, use AI or the QF-4E, not other planes. And it's no fun to dogfight with someone who keeps magically repairing and reloading missiles. /rant
That said, OPRF loves dogfighting, so if you want to fight come on over and join us. Our forums are fairly quiet because most of our discussion moved over to discord.
