  1. Had good fun in the coconut expert server last night. Like the combination of bad weather with low cloud base at night time. Clouds were 500m so me and Frederf level bombed from minimum altitude. Forgot to film the bomb run but this was our egress and landing.
  2. Cool vid as usual drifter. Was that both flights from Sunday?
  3. I'd personally rather wait for pacific than have Korea. Jets don't really interest me.
  4. Depends on the damage. I dont want AC that are likely to block the runway as a result of damage landing before me. In the case of undercarriage or control surface damage having them land last is preferable. Damage to fuel tanks or coolant is a different story though.
  5. Fenderbird is correct. Prop cannot be feathered. You can pull the RPM back before the engine fully cuts out. Seems to lessen drag. You also had had flaps out too much.
  6. I dont know whether this has already been mentioned but I would like to see a dedictaed positon for the bombardier in bomber AC. Or make it so that the bombsite is accessed through a gunner position. This means that you can either use it by switching to that position or someone else can access it by becoming your gunner. Autopilot should still be engaged by the pilot but once activated the bombardier should be able to turn the ac and control speed. It would also be good to have an option to lock off people taking that position on you AC if you want to sight the target yourself. Also I would like to be able to switch between the gunner positions in game. I was playing last night and had to exit the flight and rejoin in different positions to be able to engage the enemy.
  7. Agree this needs attention. It's one of the few things cliff does better than box. The ability to set the guns individually and with different loadouts.
  8. Hopefully one day they will get back around to the Battle of Britain.
  9. Yeah it's is heavy but I wanted something authentic feeling. It is a pain to swap between my yoke and joystick as they both weight a ton. But worth it for the added immersion they give. And yes it's 4096 per axis but because of the way I have the hall sensors fitted they use about 2500 of this. It still enough though and tracks very smoothly in DIview. Definately a step up from potentiometers. Here's one of the hall sensor and its magnets. Not the best pic but you can just about see it.
  10. I thought I'd share this with some like minded people. I recently completed building a flight yoke. I've been using it in game and I'm really happy with it. It uses hall sensors to track the Axis's and is wired into a bodnar board. Centering is done using springs and dyneema cord and is really heavy which is how I prefer it to be. I would say the design is more practical and it is not a replica of any particular yoke, it's a bit rough round the edges but I like the rugged look and feel.
  11. Firstly, sorry if this has been suggested or talked about before. I would like to suggest a loadout option availiable for bombers that includes either incederies or target marking flares. This would be really helpful when flying coordinated bomber attacks. The smoke from the current ordnance fades too quickly leaving only difficult to distinguish craters.
  12. I'm having this happen to me almost every other time I enter the bombsight. It's only started happening recently. Once it happens I have to restart the game to stop it. So far its only happened in view mode but it makes it almost impossible to get lined up with the target.
  13. Thanks for sharing this. Loving the Pe-2 atm.
  14. Looks real nice. I'm most the way through making a flight yoke based loosely on an RAF heavy bomber type, but no way near as professional as this.
  15. Great guides. Are there any guides for evasive manoeuvres specifically in the 109. I BnZ as much as possible but inevitably get caught up in a turn fight and get nailed every time. Whats the best course of action 109 when you have an enemy AC up your arse?
  16. It was 100% the same AF. Even it was another friendly AF surely it still shouldn't register as ditched.
  17. WTF! Went on a sortie tonight. Took off and flew for 50 mins didn't see another aircraft and landed back at the AF I took off from. Taxied back to where I spawned and turned my enigine off. Just checked the stats and it says I ditched! Is this a common thing?
