  1. Why would it un center track IR? I don’t think that is how it works. Could be mistaken though. If you set track r to rotate 270 degrees of Simulated head movement for 45 degrees of real head movement it will stop at the above 180 point no continue to show you 270.
  2. 100% agree on the need for greater limits re view limits. It is patently unrealistic at the minute. With regards the 109 video is he using WW2 era shoulder harness? Possibly a modern harness allows more movement. The rear view picture below is seat height raised, full forward lean, full right lean, head to the rear. Easy enough to do with Track IR. Do you think that is what the pilot in the G4 could see? Even in modern documentation point to six o'xlock limits. It seems true six o'clock vision is limited. See F-16 documentation. Most likely you can see a little beyond 70, but they use 70 degrees for a reason. Also I think there should be a limit on the the heads ability to move up. The amount of videos showing people moving their head up to get better vision over the nose when deflection shooting is also an issue IMHO. See deflection picture. IRL Are you really going to set your initial seat position high in order to get this slightly better down view (would you head actually be limited by the canopy more than it currently does. Also do you really think that whilst under G you would have the ability to raise your view point?
  3. I’d be happy with same spin in most/all aircraft aslong as it 1. actually could stabilise in auto-rotation and 2. actually require the rudder to recover (It is the primary flight control for this) I would be interested to see any documentation that does not contain rudder as the primary step in spin recovery.
  4. This all a bit beside the point. The crucial thing here is in NO AIRCRAFT REQUIRES THE USE OF RUDDER TO GET OUT OF A SPIN!!!!! Upright or inverted. i.e. You can get out of a spin in game using controls that are secondary at best and in some case should worsen the Spin. I still have yet to see a video of spin in the current verson that requires rudder.
  5. Interesting. Still the P-39 in game does not require those actions to get in out of a spin. Far from it.
  6. Tried yak 1 69 it will enter a stabilised spin (yeah) but don’t need rudder to get out of it.(booooo!!!) map stalingrad autumn 6000m start. Full fuel and ammo. Spin to left from idle power. Centralised controls, no recovery. Centralised controls, full power, recovery in a couple of turns. Next spin to left idle power start at 6000m. Centralise controls, no recovery. Move elevator through neutral towards full forward, no recovery, ailerons into spin (left aileron) recovery in 1-2 turns. Tried at 50% fuel same result. Mig-3 will stabilise in a spin but still don’t need rudder to recover. Same as Yak-1.

I read the flight manual but I may have missed it. I see full elevator but no mention of into spin rudder.
  7. I can’t find a single one that actually needs rudder to recover. Rudder probably speeds recovery in game ( rudder is the common denominator in all spin recovery IRL) The fact you don’t need it is the issue. Sheriff I know you spend a lot of time on the game (love the videos btw) try getting any of them into a spin and then try to get out of it first by doing nothing. (I.e centralise controls) then try ailerons. I have not found the need to use the rudder, which is the primary control to get you out of a spin. Just weird
  8. anyone seen this document before?
  9. I think something is very off with the spin behaviour. In all the aircraft I tried (most of the fighters so far) when I am in conditions that should be a stabilised spin (not incipient stage), the only recovery that is required is centralised controls (majority) or some aileron input (P-39) NO rudder is required!!! Most will self recover within a couple of turns. Power on or off doesn’t seem to matter. Something is is not right. Can someone name an aircraft that stays in the spin and requires rudder to get it out?
  10. When I think of all the flaming that goes on. Of which I am guilty too. I think of this quote. "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." Theodore Roosevelt.
