BTW you don't need to know what all the dials and toggles do to push the throtle the pull the joystick back to fly it....
Erm... it kind of helps if you don't want to die. But I'm something of an aviation enthusiast, and this is hardly the place for that.
Just because you don't get it straight away doesn't mean you have come here and rant and rave about it...
I beg to differ. Ranting and raving on the Internet never
requires a good reason. And I use a wide enough variety of programs to know when one leaps out as being really
counter-intuitive, regardless of my own lack of familiarity.
A Sopwith Camel is probably a relatively easy fighter to learn to fly by the average person
(Actually no, the Camel had incredibly difficult handling characteristics due to a weird centre of gravity and tendency to corkscrew generated by its rotary engine. All things considered, the "average person" would probably stand a better chance of not dying if they climbed into a Harrier. But again, this is the wrong forum...)
I don't see any wars being won by the side that fields Sopwith Camels against the side flying Harriers.
Hmm.... can the Camels have modern AA missiles in this hypothetical scenario? Because I'd pay to watch that.
And aren't you coming from the same Ace fighter pilot position regarding Photoshop? That's not an easy app to learn. It wasn't when I learned 2.5 and it's far more complex now.
Complex, yes. But user-friendly. Everything in it is fairly obvious, easy to find and understand. I picked up Photoshop years ago, knowing nothing about it, and was producing fairly high-grade comicbook art within a week. Sure, there are a lot of functions I don't touch because they're not necessary for what I do, but I know how to get at everything and didn't have to attend a goddamned university course to get it.
