Seeing as i still have CFS2 on my HD think I best start practicing carrier traps again. since AEP came out have totally gotten away from them.
Have a feeling traps on PF will be alot more difficult but yah gotta start somewhere.

I think the first day it's out I'm going to set up a camera over the fantail and make a "blooper" reel of everyone crashing http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

It's obvious that there is a huge population of CFS2 folks in here. However, for those who have not ever seen it, might I suggest that you download Aces High for your carrier training intead. In addition to it's being FREE, the flight models are great, and even though the cockpits leave a bit to be desired, the Essex class carrier is beautiful. There is also quite a selection of aircraft to train in. F6F, F4U-1, -1C, -1D, -4, FM2, SBD-5, TBM-3, Kate, Val, Zero, and Seafire.

this might have been posted already, but RAF_Blackace made a wee film called Lightening which features a Gladiator landing on a very small platform in the middle of a bay (i.e. possibly the size of a carrier deck). It's a nice wee short, and seems to highlight the difficulties present quite well I'd say!!

Download the movie here (http://pauke.ee.ethz.ch:8732/oberstguncam/Movies/Lightning3.wmv)

Practice your CLA first, or there will be no trap.

or just do trial and error untill you actually manage it somehow

...there followed one of those moments in history, the sort when the entire earth seemed to stop its spin, hearts paused, and even the people who'd been screaming their loyalty to a man already dead would remember only silence.
