    Challenge Old School stuff

    Inspired by a post I made in another thread I decide to make it official. Here are my thoughts, the Orbitnaut uses a lot of MFDs in their typical flight. Let's go back in time (aka 1950's Robert Heinlein for example) and see if people can do without. The conditions: 1) A DGIV parked on KSC...

    Yes, I admit it, I suck at docking. Would it be possible to have a auto pilot auto docking sequence like the DGIV series? I'm mainly interesting in the XR2 for this.

    Yo-Yo ride Redux (oooops!)

    Continuing the adventures of someone who really shouldn't be behind the joystick. As some of you may have figured out by now, I'm a sort of fly by the "seat of the pants" and "That looks about right." type of pilot. Sort of instinct. Well, instinct can be very wrong at times especially when...

    Whadya mean I'm on fire! I shouldn't burn up yet!

    The fumbling misadventures of someone who really shouldn't be behind a joystick. I had orbiter a while back but ended up losing in in a systems crash a while ago and decided to give it another go. Went ahead, got the files, the sound files, the DGIV (wonderful craft!) then tried to read some...
