Hi all!

I am Carlos, but since there already was a Carlos registered it is abCarlos (a, b, c..). I am from Rotterdam, The Netherlands, 24 years old and will turn 25 later this year. My native language is Dutch but of course English is not really a problem.

My experience with flight sims is very little. I already photographed planes/helicopters but I never really thought of getting into a sim, until last year. Got a PS4 and saw War Thunder, things went quick from here. Tried out a bunch of different sims; FSX, P3D, X-Plane.. then I read about DCS. After some months with a crappy joystick I had a good talk with myself and just went for it. TM Warthog, combat rudders, trackir.. Never regretted! Got the hardware around December and a lot of hours are going into DCS since then, it's the only flight sim I play. I only flew wings and I'm just getting into the Huey. No rotor experience at all so I assume to learn a lot from you guys bounce

Now I just have to wait to get accepted by the European usergroup I submitted to?

Greetings from the Netherlands,

By the way, the flying dutchmen, you remind me a fly over the Nederlands i did with my father a long time ago, from Rotterdam to Arnhem, over the historical drop zones of the operation market garden. Epic!

It was aboard this bird:
