Consider me for WOC

Post by (A/229) Huckleberry on Mon 26 Dec 2016 - 19:36

Hey everyone, I'm Huckleberry, from the USA. Nigh on 27, I've been a big Huey fan since I first started playing Arma 2 Free back in college.  How big of a fan?  Well, when the Saitek X52 didn't do it for me (mainly because of the recentering spring mechanism), I broke down and ordered a Komodo Simulations flight setup.  UH-1 cyclic, collective, and rudder pedals, just so I could play DCS Huey/Arma 3 and feel like I was getting the real thing... But I still wasn't.  So I just got a Vive VR headset, and with my water cooled GTX 1080 the experience in DCS is pretty much complete, except a community of people who would want me to fly Hueys with them!

Off the bat, its definitely worth mentioning that I have a stutter.  Not a huge deal, but I guess what I'm trying to say is, with anything comms intensive, you might not want me on the horn very often.

Other than that, I think I'm a great potential WOC.  Many, many hours of flight time in Arma 3,  Bachelor of computer science, game/server administration background.  I've fallen asleep many nights listening to Chickenhawk on audiobook, and had a few dreams of my own about the Preachers and the 1stCav.  I've learned about heli mechanics, I'm a very decent rookie, but still trying to get a better feel for how they are best applied.  Now that I can actually gain the proper muscle memory, I would very much love to be instructed by skilled IP(s), and eventually take part in community driven events.

Thanks for your consideration

I'm living in Indiana, USA. You might catch me in Arkansas from time to time too. Mostly I'll be on US Eastern, and for the time being my hours are wildly flexible.

I look forward to flying with you all. Thank you sir(s) for the acceptance!

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. What are the standards for a callsign? Like Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, or perhaps Delta Two One?
