Over the last two weeks of subscriber videos we learned:

1) How Vinnie and Drew run a TNT

2) How to start and takeoff in an A-10 Thunderbolt

Having seen both videos, which do you think you could actually handle?

It's an A-10 Warthog, not Thunderbolt right?

Edit: Never mind, guess warthog is its nickname not official name.

I work in live audio and video, so I could probably handle that. It'd be very rough, but I could do it.

I'd get everyone killed in the A-10.

I have started an A-10 a couple of times already... in DCS.

i think a-10 would be nerve racking but kind of cool. how far do i have to fly it? can i just take off and land? or do i have to do a bombing run?

do I have access to Drew's pdfs or do I have to do it from memory?

A-10. As long as I don't turn the plane upside down and eject, I *should* end up safely back on the ground.

EDIT: I plan on ejecting with the plane right side up.

Well the way vinny explained it, it actually didn't look as complicated as it looks. Vinny is a good teacher.

Ill say running the tnt. Seemed like they pretty much streamlined the process

My choice is the A-10 as it seems like a pretty linear process to get it going, where in the GB control room I would never be able to keep all of the plates spinning. Despite Vinnie's assurances, that mixing board made nervous just looking at it.

While I generally prefer my crash-and-burns to be metaphorical rather than literal, at least with the plane I won't have hundreds of people on the internet upset at me.

I would run TNT from within an A-10. This scenario ends poorly for all involved.

Both with adequate training or instructions. They look difficult but not exactly impossible.

@punkxblaze: You want to first turn the main master auxiliary battery control fob from off to "0", you'll hear some alarms, that is normal, then can we get a little more game audio out here?

You're warthog should now be upside down and spiraling towards earth, also the chat is telling us to "just pick up the purse".

I've seen neither because ~~subscriber videos~~

#18 Posted by crusader8463 (14419 posts) -

I would rather do the plane, but running a TNT is something I think I could actually do.

It's really not hard to run a web stream.

#20 Posted by Jack268 (3387 posts) -

I could handle running the stream as long as "handling" means "nobody ends up dead".

#21 Posted by JasonR86 (9659 posts) -

There's less of a chance of me dying setting up a TNT so I'll pick A.
