I have no idea what this is, which often ends up as the best quick looks.

Are we about to see more ineptitude in the flying of aircraft? (Hopefully)

Aren't most combat simulators digital?

Been waiting for this one!

Judging by the thumbnail, This QL is yet another classic in the making.

Flight club is gonna make me invest in some kind of crazy flight stick setup I don't want to play sims I don't really enjoy. I can feel it.

Haven't you been following the flight club? They've talked about it extensively. Also on that recent bombcast with Drew.

Got this during the steam sale, haven't been able to get off the ground yet.

@theimmortalbum: What stick did you buy? I have one, but it isn't very good (a Logitech 3D thinger), and might get something a bit nicer.

It took me two hours to get the A-10c off the ground. I played along with the quick look and had to use it to figure out what I needed to get started. It's nuts.

I think you might have just got the first Black Shark? As far as I can tell (and from what Drew told me) you can only get BS2 from the DCS store.

Right. They only have Black Shark 1 on the Steam store. You can buy the upgrade to Black Shark 2 for $20 at the DCS store.

Kudos Giant Bomb FLIGHT CLUB for making this epic video "public" (and not just premium) - I recommended your club to the Gamespot FUSE people a couple weeks ago for a reason! ;)

Posted by Stahlbrand

downloading HD version now. Must be able to read the cockpit details, won't accept hitching or stalls of video player.

FLIGHT CLUB: AINT FUCKING AROUND

Vinny trying to trick Drew into ejecting.. so great!

Posted by blacklab

Any Drew or Dave video is favorite video

Posted by ManiacMaysin

Flight Club is delightful.

Posted by DemiGodRaven

If we go more than two days without a photoshop of either Dave or Vinny as a speedboat, I will be mildly disappointed.

Thumbnail looks promising.

I WASN'T EXPECTING THIS.

Edited by DrSwank

Drew Scanlon, you should brush up your rotorcraft aerodynamics. Both a tail rotor and a dual main rotor assembly choppers BOTH rely on anti-torque to maintain controlled forward flight, you made it sound like tail-rotors do not use anti-torque. YAW is only used during hovering, not during forward flight. During forward flight, the pedals are used to keep the helicopter "in trim" with the weathervane (airstream) that you're flying in, to maintain comfortable levels of turbulence. In real life and heli-simulators, one is not able to yaw unless around hovering speeds. Unfortunately with the consumer logitech flight stick/pedals you have, the pedals are completely unrealistic to pedals in a real chopper. Real pedals do not return to center when pushed in, and during forward flight (for this reason) is used to counter torque the increased torque (i.e. as lift thrust increases more anti-torque is needed) from the main rotor assembly.

I'd highly recommend taking 1 real-life lesson in a Robinson R22.

WHAT THE HELL IS THIS!?!?!

I skipped ahead to like 30 minutes in and they're already in the air!!!

Drew turned pro.

Just a Logitech Extreme 3D Pro, the $30 one. I don't plan on getting super heavy into these sims (I mainly just want to dick around, so why spend $100 on a full HOTAS then another $150 on TrackIR?), and I play a lot of stuff like Evochron/X3 which is well served by just a joystick without a lot of need for HOTAS.

''Landing by accident'' lol that bit was brilliant,

Flight club is prepped and ready for takeoff

Posted by Govannan

Just from looking at the preview image, I'm fairly certain that the ground should not be to the left.

Only the Giant Bomb Flight Club could accidentally LAND a helicopter while trying to destroy it in mid-air.

Fire birds is the Topgun of Helicopter movies.

Posted by FMinus

You weren't going up, cause your right engine failed, since you skipped one step when you activated it :D

Posted by StraightGrizzly

there IS a helicopter movie, its called Blue Thunder starring Roy Schneider, and it is totally the Top Gun of helicopter movies, its awesome.

Posted by alibson

That helicopter was made in the 80s. They figured out how to lock onto a moving plane with your head and shoot a missile at it using a black and white CRT monitor.

Today we have a Kinect that never fucking works. What the hell. I know army has the best technology but come on.
