Condor 2 by [email protected]
I bought Condor 2 and intended to run 3 monitors because it's how I've run sims with other well known programs with zero issues. The computer it's on is not one purchased at a retail store front outlet. It was purpose built and flew/flies X-plane just dandy with no problems whatsoever. Two bridged...

Are areas of sink modeled well in Condor2? by Charles Ethridge
Question for those of you who fly with Oudie and Condor2: While sink near thermals seem to be modeled well in Condor2, some people in our club do not think that Condor models areas of sink outside of thermals (between clouds) very well. In other words, when they fly cross-country in real life...

Butterfly vario wind indication by Ian Wright
The wind direction/speed info on our butterfly vario is only working intermittently. When no direction and value is given it just shows WIND N/A. Sometimes it shows STILL AIR. All other functions seem to work just fine. Any ideas much appreciated?

Visit From A Great Guy by Bob Youngblood
Yesterday I landed the Pawnee and noticed a guy standing next to a vehicle speaking with one of our tow pilots. The closer I got I could see that it was a spitting image of one of my late old friends. I could hardly hold back my comments, "you look exactly like your father", it was the son of E9,...
