Hi Guys,

Your Vulcan is amazing and the team has done a cracking job with it!

I stumbled across a post on the forums where the prospect of adding a civa-style INS to the Vulcan was being discussed. I understand that the development team will be very busy at this time with bug fixes, but any insight on this topic would be truly appreciated; even if it's just to say that the addition of an INS is still being considered. Having an INS would be fantastic for long distance navigation in the Vulcan - yes I am referring to using it for a Vulcan "Cross the Pond" Vatsim flight!

In all seriousness having an INS would be very useful for simulating a Black Buck style mission to the Falklands.

Any insight at all would be greatly appreciated.

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year,


Digby

Sounds like a good idea for an upgrade. What think you, JF ? Wink

I'm sure a more comprehensive answer will come along after the holidays, but there is an INS in development in parallel with the VC10 Pro so it may not be outside the realms of possibility.

Sounds great. That pro-VC10 is already on my list too. Thanks Paul, and Happy New Year to you and to  Digby.

Hi guys,

when working on the INS: would it be possible to consider a possibility to interface hardware to press the buttons or even read out the displys somehow ?
Thanks & looking forward to the VC10 Pro,
Florian
