Yeah, I'll be interested to hear what happens in that department. Needless to say, we were all pretty excited to hear the Blues officers will be sticking around another year. It bodes well!

I wonder how they feel about selection with the current state of military demonstration teams in the US!

I think you might be jumping the gun with this many questions! 1) Study more videos! 2) A "hack" refers to the synchronization of stopwatches, nothing more. They anticipate crossing the "hack point" (as you call it) at 10 seconds into their timing. They fly the entire opposing maneuver profile using...

So it is both a force stick and a deflection stick at the same time. :) That's a strange way of phrasing what you're trying to say, because the Hornet's stick also has simple...

That said, force sticks are just fun. On the plus side, smoothness and pilot feedback were the reasons that the real F-16 force stick was given physical deflection and that this incarnation of the FSSB has built in deflection is exciting. That would be interesting! How much does the F-16 stick move...
