  1. They have gravity-fed carburettors and get starved of fuel if you nose down too hard. Do a half roll and pull back to dive if you're in a hurry. Or play with Miss Shilling's orifice.
  2. They're certainly sturdier. Their weakness is the reliance on CH's management app, which was hot-or-miss for me under Windows 10.
  3. I use a couple of these (you'd be astonished at how many uses you can find for a lever). I previously used a couple of CH quadrants, which were excellent when the CH manager app worked, but gave up on them when I switched to Windows 10 and found said app's functioning to be too hit-and-miss with Win10.
  4. As an aside, a throttle quadrant or two is an excellent investment if you plan to get the most out of this game.
  5. Regarding the opening post: you'd have learnt to fly right-handed by the time you made it to a warplane, assuming you hadn't already had leftyism beaten out of you as a child.
  6. Wait for a helpful Bf-109 to light them up.
  7. You don't fancy baiting les Boches in a photorecon version?
  8. You can give up a surprising number of valuable organs and still function.
  9. Eh, I'm a sucker for planes with stupidly large cannon. Who knows - we might even get to fly the can opener.
  10. Take off in a Storch in TF6.0, and you'd arrive at your target just in time for TF 7.0 to drop.
  11. It's intentional and AFAIK accurate. All FW-190s fire all inner+cowling guns on the same trigger.
  12. I'm sure there was at least one German wartime engineer who looked at the Condor and thought, "I bet I could fit dive brakes to that."
  13. You're on a fool's errand. Take the FW-190 F-8 instead, load up an SC1000, and you're good to go. You'll be done and home before the Stukas have even started trying to eat all of Uncle Joe's ammo.
  14. Stick back in the Bf-110 is to use the prop-wash to force the tail down, adding a little drag to the tailwheel. Lockable tailwheels are for the weak.
