    Apollo 11 - Targeting a New Splashdown Site

    I’m interested in simulating entry using the revised (actual) landing coordinates, in light of the weather issues at the original planned coordinates. Any ideas how to do this, using (for example) RTCC MFD? If I’m not mistaken, no DV or other burns were conducted after the decision to move the...

The EMS, however, is less easy to interpret. Having saved the bitmap...

    Joystick + Keyboard for Control?

    Hi Is it possible to enable the keyboard control of the spacecraft while having the joystick enabled for Project Apollo? I only have a two-axis joystick, and I cannot control yaw unless it is through the keyboard. Same goes for +/- X translation. Alternatively, any tips on how to get a HOTAS...
