After the hack, YTS started hosting many false torrents on the site's servers. While these fake torrents were configured to look legitimate, they were actually bypassing all the checks YTS has in place to prevent users from downloading illegal content.
As the TorrentFreak article points out, the site's demise is due to the fact that its current owners have little experience running a massive torrent site. The admins had no idea what to do when the site went down, and the fact that people were able to download movies and music from the site was only a matter of luck.
This week, the public had to endure a new -- and unexpected -- event. KickassTorrents was hacked and suspended. The site was offline for over a day, but the torrent site's administrators were able to bring it back online in time to kick off the month of January. However, the site's administrators soon admitted that the site's downtime was not because of a cyber attack.
As a professional pilot myself I have had to turn away from using P3D because of aerodynamics and flight control problems that dont exist in FSX or X-plane. I have flown P3Dv3 and X-plane and both have great flight sim experience and professional developers, P3D doesnt seem to have many of the bugs that X-plane has and I have never had a Aerosoft product crash or lock up. I can tell you that with X-plane or FSX you have to tweak and fiddle to get the plane to fly. The flybar is a joke, the flybar isnt shown correctly in the airbrakes, the flybar doesnt follow you into the stall and it doesnt allow you to increase or decrease the number of speed brakes in a proper way. You cant have more than 3 speed brakes, you cant select the side of the aircraft you would like to have speed brakes, you cant increase or decrease the speed brakes in a proper way, you can only move the front brakes, so you dont have any rotation speedbrakes, just a few front speed brakes. So when you are stuck in the stall just press the flaps button like a muppet, or if you have a multi engine aircraft pull up or byzantium roll. As to the flight control system, in X-plane or FSX the flight control system can be a pain to fly and the stiff flight control wings are horrible. In P3Dv3 and now P3Dv4 you have great flight control wings that are soft. Just fiddle with them and remember that you cant just move the speed brake pedals and you cant rotate the flight control in a proper way, you can only move the front speed brakes, which isnt a proper way of flying, so if you want to fly properly you have to pull off all the flight control on the ground and just fly with the flybar. For the flight control laws, you have to fiddle them in a way that doesnt make sense, rather it is a case of 'fiddling with the farkle knobs'. You have to adjust the flaps and speed brakes for perfect flight. P3D is amazing when it works, and it does work, there are just a lot of stability and flight control problems. 827ec27edc
