Before FSForce landing the 777 or the 747 or any plane really left me cold no feeling of contact with terrafirma. After a week o...

great news, cant wait to try

Hi

I.ve been waiting a long time for this.

Using my MSff2, the force feedback in fs2004 is poor to say the least.

REALLY looking forward to the change that good forcefeedback can bring to the flying experience.

Good luck and if you need any beta testers I would be glad to help.

many thanks
John
