  1. I have had some fun and success shooting P-40s with a 109 F4... I know, I know all the advantages to my favor, but you have to start with something, at least this helped spotting training, as I need to get used to fight without object markers . I gradually moved the AI level from "novice" to "ace" and then started with other planes (mostly older models, I prefer somehow BoM planes to newer ones, and I am in love with the F4): after some hours: - P-40, Lagg-3 and La-5 easy even at "ace" - "ace" Yak-1 was not so difficult, maybe I had luck, or maybe I didn't fight it enough - "ace" Mig-3 and I-16 had been the hardest
  2. I can understand the lights, you want to show your position to wingman/ friendly forces but why landing gear? much better to belly land, last thing you really need is to add drag
  3. Thanks to all only issue with targeting assist is that I would need to turn on object markers, and I need to train spotting more urgently than diving
  4. I don't know if this is a technical issue or knowledge gap. In the FW-190 I can't push flaps beyond ~10 degrees, which I believe is the take-off position I have flaps mapped to keyboard, one key for flaps up, another for flaps down. when I click flaps down, it will move to take-off, if I click flaps down again nothing will happen clicking flaps up will withdraw it So am I missing something maybe another key to push flaps to landing position? thanks in advance please ignore... I got it... you have to be airborne/ landing gear up to set the lowest flap lol, that explains why it was so hard to land it... FW190 with 10 degrees flap is no fun.. plane conserves speed and doesn't want to stop
  5. you need a good joystick pedals help too
  6. For me it was resolution reduction (from 3500x2500 to 2500x1900 or something like that) what vastly improved my capability to spot, with best resolution I could barely seen after 1 km, because the plane cammo blended very well with terrain; after reducing resolution it is now black/ easier to spot This in addition to changing blurred/ gamma/ sharpen as shown
  7. it was! Mig-3 vs He-111 2,000m height advantage Kuban map over water so spotting was not that hard lots of passes, lots of damage (giving and receiving) and surprised how easy is to accidentally ram a bomber, certainly better to do it offline as you don't want to ram somebody in multiplayer
  8. would you start against a bomber? with AI you can't "surprise" the enemy, and it is hard to hit, always changing direction
  9. as per the title, how do you train for energy fighting? I have seen the videos, but it is really hard to hit any moving target once you are diving at high speed any advice on quick mission settings? maybe 1,000 altitude difference? what would be a best place to use as victim? I was thinking a big, fat bomber to start
  10. It is as automatic as all other Soviet/ British planes in BOX; give or take, U-2 obviously not But It uses the same key that turns pitch automation on/ off, so for someone that is used to German fighters and used not to American planes(and doesn't like to read plane specifications ) this can be confusing a
  11. thanks again! that is it, range depends which gunsight marker post to use, I guess I was shooting to far away
  12. thanks, that seems to work on the IL-2 (bigger rockets). but somehow the smaller, fighter based (ROS-82) go all over the place
  13. Is there any trick to aim soviet rockets? with all certainty they won't hit the center of the sight, maybe try 10 or 20 degrees left (for the 1st shot) then 10 or 20 right for the second?
  14. I am new on the P-40 and I have a question on this aircraft P-40 has an automatic propeller pitch, but the RPM remains under the pilot's control (so this is not fully automatic like in the 109).. I had some confusion about this and I was lucky it didn't end in engine failure my question: is there any scenario where it would be advisable to switch to manual propeller pitch? thanks
  15. Things that helped me, and I am still a newbie, although one that no longer crashes on take off and landing: - Most likely issue is your rudder sensitivity. I suggest you try these rudder settings: sensitivity 50%, dead zone center 20%, dead zone edges 0% - Practice a lot taxing on the ground; start with manual RPM==> set to lowest, this of course won't be good for taking off, but it is simplifies taxing, less ground loops, so you can train - set trim (stabilizer) to +2 or +3, this will make take-offs longer, but with no possibility of the plane getting airborne before it is ready - I no longer use 20% flaps, it is not really needed, but feel free to start with it - until you get good with the rudder controls, start take off with full stick on tail down, keep it this way for a few seconds as this forces the tail down, so it will move less. this is really more I trick for non-tail wheel lock planes like those Russians. Few seconds, then stick to the center - around 60km put stick up a bit, just to set the tail upwards, with the tail off ground you should have a lot less rudder trouble - at 200km take off I strongly suggest you also follow Requiem's Air Combat videos
