    Just figured out that th real Chuck Yeager plays a (minor) screen-role in this film. Kinda funny when that NASA-emoloyee asks for a Coke and Yeager (as a barman) is like *WTF??*

    If you get a chance, read Levon Helm's autobiography "This Wheels on Fire"....While most of the book chronicles his days as The Band's drummer, there is a bit about his part in "TRS"

    It seems Helms and Dennis Quad (spelling?) got bored during shooting break and snuck off to enjoy a couple smokes of the "herbal jazz variety".....To make a long story short, Yeager (the real Yeager, that is) caught both of them getting stoned and was less than pleased by their antics <div class="ev_tpc_signature">

    When it comes to Chuck Yeager I recommend the book:

    "Yeager, by General Chuck Yeager and Leo Janos"
    ISBN 0-09-947040-3

    Read chapter "On the deck" about 90 pages in.

    It contains the story where Chuck gets ordered to shoot anything that moves within a 50 by 50 sq mile area in Germany. He does it because he was ordered to. Just following orders.....

    In his own words, a quote from the book: " We were ordered to commit an atrocity , pure and simple"

    Another quote: "I'm certainly not proud of that particular strafing mission against civilians"

    When I read that I choked on my coffe. It certainly opened up my eyes to a new aspect of the icon Yeager.

    He could have said no. He knowingly comitted a war crime.....

    To get my Ch Pro Pedals to work with my X45 then X52 I had to first eradicate the CH Manager, which refused to allow my X45 then X52 to control ailerons and elevators and assigned all flight controls to the pedals. After I eliminated the CH Manager program I was able to assign the controls to the appropriate controllers.

    Windows should recognize the pedals on its own, just go to the HOTAS controls in the Controls menu and assign rudder to the CH Pedals.

    Unless you're going to get a CH Stick or yoke, do not install the CH Manager.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
