I just had to share this with you. My background is in Flight control systems for aircraft. Never before had I seen a flight sim actually show the effects of the flight control system actively stabilizing the aeroplane as I had seen the first time in EF 2000.
Well, call me quirky and geeky, but by golly, I got really excited when I saw this from the external view in EF 2000.
My roomate (who is a pilot, though he is not very good at sims), works at the same lab I do, and he, too, had a broad grin on his face when he saw the moving control surfaces! I think it is interesting how few people probably realize what is going on with this : )
My brother thought it was a bug in the game that the surfaces were moving almost continually. I just had to sit back and chuckle : )
He's a lawyer...
Anyway, I enjoy your webpage, it has tons of useful stuff in it.
