Hey guys!

So I've never flown with any of you (to my knowledge) however have watched all the YouTube videos I could find of this fine squadron in action and figured what the hell.

So I'm Badger and I hail from the North East of England (Newcastle if you want to be precise). Speaking of which your website insults me by saying I'm in Liverpool. To a Geordie there is no greater insult!

I've got about 20hrs give or take a few on the Huey, about 5 on the gazelle, and 30 minutes if I'm lucky on the KA50.

As far as flight experience goes in the Huey I can do the basics. Formation flying isn't something I've had the opportunity to try, never mind landing in formation, although I can fly in formation in fixed wing aircraft so I can't imagine it being too different....right?

Looking to sharpen my skills, have some fun, and make some new friends.

Did I mention the website insulted me?

Anyway guys hopefully my poor attempt at humour has giving you at least some idea of my personality. Hope to hear from you soon!

Regards,

Badger

What as a Yank(no not that Redneck) I could swear everyone from England lived in London or Liverpool.  No wait I thought the NE was Scotland.   Laughing

Hi guys,

I've managed to get on TS, however the mods are proving...difficult. I'm clicking on the mod link in my papers and it takes me to a section of the website with a list of mods. I click on one of the links to be greeted by dropbox telling me the files don't exist. Am I missing something?

Spoiler: I've never modded DCS so i'm hoping this is a simple, self explanatory process.

Welcome Badger, this POST includes everything you need including a simplistic guide.  If still having probs post a time when available in this thread and I'm sure me, Chic or someone will meet and get you sorted.

I think I’ve managed to get the mods installed. Will test them tonight when I get in from work. If not I’ll grab someone on Teamspeak.

Thanks.
