Eric: Moller Skycar 400 http://flightsim.com/zview.php?cm=list&fid=76248
The Moller Skycar is a prototype personal VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) aircraft — a "flying car" — called a "volantor" by its inventor Paul Moller, who has been attempting to develop such vehicles for many years. The design calls for four ducted fans - the propellers being covered which is safer and more efficient at low speeds... Yes, a flying car.
Another, more practical flying car... The Terrafugia.
Voicemails & E-Mails
Thank You to George in the UK for sending us along a voicemail. In regards to the Aerosoft Discussion, I think we have managed to pull it up here.
Re: Show Length - From Gabe
Hi Guys, Just found your site / broadcasts and must say you guys are a riot. Never mind 5 1/2 hours, I could listen to you all day ! With an average flight time in a 747 of 9 hours, it's good to have something to do enroute. It's nice to listen to knowledgeable people for a change -there's a lot of garbage on the forums. I liked your interview with 'Matchew' from Aerosoft - very interesting stuff. You should have a TV show really. Thnx again for your efforts, I will become a regular listener. Gabe Logan PS Have you tried AirHauler yet ? I'm sure Duncan would love to do an interview.
Flattering... Gabe. This represents a lot of the feedback we received about the episode length.
Gulfstream and Falcon 2000 Insight
I listened carefully to the Mathijs Kok interview, very, very interesting. One of the interviewer (Eric or Mark?) wonders why there is no Gulfstream V (G5) modeled for FS, and no Dassault Falcon 2000 either. The answer is simple: Gulfstream and Dassault companies don't want to have their aircraft modeled in FS. I have been discussing for years with Dassault Falcon (I am in France, it is easier) to get an agreement with them. They are interested, but nothing has been done yet. This is why modeling a Gulfstream or a Dassault aircraft is just... illegal.
Hardware Question from Mike
I think that the podcast is never too long. I can't get enough. Just a suggestion, I would like to hear about computer hardware that helps or gives the biggest performance increase in FSX. It would really help those of us who are trying to upgrade to be able to run FSX well. Thanks, Mike
Mike: Basically spend your money on the CPU and the Memory, and check out FSBreak 12.
