    Default Flight Sims.....

    Just got X-Plane 10, grabbed my son's joystick (not illegal if you're his Dad and he keeps schtum) and first go, took-of in, circled-aound in, and landed perfectly in a Cessna.

    I thought, piece of piss this pilot nonsense.

    Then I tried a Boeing 747 in Extreme Landings and totally mashed it, killed everybody on board, all my fault! Think I over stretched myself but I got mixed up between 'up' and 'down'.

    I'm hooked though!

    My subconscious is annoying. It's got a mind of its own.
