  1. Still being kind of a newbie I'd recommend the scripted campaigns for some fun single player practice. It pays off to fly multiple missions in one single aircraft. And it's a lot more fun than free flight. By the way, there is a lot more than fighters in here. The Sea Dragons campaign with the IL2 (comes with BOK) is a lot of fun, with a layback pace.
  2. Im quite new to the IL2 world, so keep that in mind when reading my comments. Im flying both with trackir and in VR (vive, and recently vive pro). I am far from competative, but I think that trackir might be the way to go for that. I find it a lot harder to spot enemies in VR. On the other hand, since I first tried IL2 in VR, this is my prime way to experience it. For me, first time in VR with IL2 was a royal WOW moment. Before that I had tried some different games with my kids in our VR headset, but this moment was an eye-opener for me regarding the future of VR. I think it is in the different simulations (racing, flight etc.) VR will show its full potential. And todays VR headsets sure gives you a good taste of it already. The thing is that in VR you get a whole lot of room awareness, that can not be compared to 2D (with or without trackir). Since I used both trackir and VR when I started to learn flying in IL2, practicing starts and landings, I can confidently say that landing in VR is a lot easier than landing in 2d with trackir. In VR it´s like you can feel in your body when the wheels will touch down, in 2d I had no clue in the beginning. I also find it a lot more joyful to make long flights in VR than in 2d, it´s just plain fun to look att the sunset, the villages beneath etc, since you are more... there. Regarding controllers; I use a stick, throttle and pedals. You really have to let go of the keyboard when flying in VR (it breaks the immersion, and is plain tricky to find the right key). With that said, I do use an Elgato Steam Deck for functions like Record, Gunner commands etc. It´s easier to navigate blindfolded than a keyboard.
  3. I have trackir but zoom with a thumb-four-way button on the throttle (in, out, reset). I use the same button when zooming in vr, though then there is only the zoom in command.
  4. I'm lefthanded but use a T16000m with my right hand and the throttle with my left. No problems whatsoever, for me it works just fine. By the way, in fps games I use lefthanded mouse and control moving (wasd) with my right hand.
  5. Im using an Elgato Stream Deck in order to bind keys that wont fit on the hotas (or I dont want on the hotas). They come in three different sizes, and you can easily execute hotkeys to its buttons, start il2 with another button and even create subfolders (like press one key in order to get a layout with all the avaliable gunner commands). I use the one with 5 x 3 buttons, and it´s a perfect size for me. Might not exactly look like flight interior, but very handy.
  6. I'm almost through it already. Lots of fun.
  7. This is sweet! Can't wait to get home and start practicing. But could someone please explain how the bomb fuse works? What exactly does it mean to set the fuse to 5 sec? And what consequences?
  8. Great, I'll check those videos. Thanks!
  9. It's a good idea to record the attack for later review. I'll try that. I would love an instant replay button with the camera on the target. Uhm, yah this is really confusing. 😀
  10. What do you mean, does the bomb have to be in the air a certain amount of time before it explodes? I thought setting the bomb to 5s meant that it would explode 5s after it had hit the target. But you mean this is a countdown clock which might stop if it hit the ground before reaching 0?

  12. Yeah, that part works just fine for me. 😀
  13. Hi guys! I'm quite new to this sim, steadily learning. Lately I've been flying the IL2, trying to learn some dive bombing. But it doesn't go very well. I have no consistency at all hitting the targets. And don't really seem to improve. Do you guys have any tips that I could make use of? Would be highly appreciated. /Matt
  14. Propably. I purchased mine about a month ago. Agreed.
