  1. You can invert the throttle axis by selecting "inverted" (on the right side) in the control settings. I think that's your problem. Or are you referring to that in Italian and French planes the throttle (inside the cockpit) moves in reverse? "The indicator at the bottom left corner" instead works normally, as in all other planes.
  2. In uncertainty keep everything open, said the wise. Flat out!
  3. I think Cipson is referring to seeing stuff on the ground, even quite large things, like forts, airports and more. These things appear too late, when you are too close. This happens more in the Tobruk map, the Channel map is much better. Air contacts spotting, on the other hand, is very good. Although some say it has decreased slightly over the years. I always see more or less the same. We are a bit OT. 😅
  4. Yes I know. I saw Palker's video, it went well for him, it's something that many do. Okay for WT. PS: I absolutely don't want to be offensive to Palker or anyone.
  5. We dropped all the bombs on the target in level bombing from 3000 m. Maybe I forgot to mention it in my post.
  6. Navigation on the desert is made even more difficult by the fact that the map doesn't match perfectly what you see when flying in game. It seems missing some roads, rocky reliefs and more. Furthermore, the visibility of objects on the ground is very limited (even from above). It is difficult to see an airport more than 10 km away. It seems that in the last patch it also got a bit worse, but maybe I'm wrong. A lot is probably due to my/our video settings. As for our sortie: we took 3 Br20s, me, ClydeFrog and Pernix. We flew in instrument flight as far as Siwi North. Up to that
  7. The manual says that above 6000 m can be used full throttle height without any duration limit. This is precisely for the reason that Buzzsaw says: at this altitude there was no potential to generate high boost levels. Low ATA, in short. The manual also says that 2400 RPM can be keep for a maximum of 10 minutes at any altitude. Manifold pressure instrument is what you always have to check. The ATA that can be pushed without problems are 1.23. Continuous. The instrument is positioned in such a way as to have this value at 12 o'clock. When the needle
  8. Falco perfectly described the function of the red button, which practically and simply allowed you to move the throttle at the end of the excursion (I mean "fine corsa"). Kintaro, most WEP systems were just that: allowing you to push more throttle (so more boost). A very simple mechanism. You can see something similar in the Spitfire's throttle, where movement is limited by a metal plate (which can be raised if you need the full throttle). There was an even simpler method, which consisted of straining a copper wire (it had the same function as the metal plate) and which
  9. Maybe this is a good example on camouflage and markings for Africa: http://www.aircraftresourcecenter.com/Gal3/2401-2500/Gal2416-FiatBR-20M-Youngerman/00.shtm
  10. Yes, after returning to Italy for the first half of '41, they went to Africa. But I think (I could be wrong) that in this scenario they didn't have yellow on the engines. I repeat, I could be wrong though ...😊 That was what I wanted to say before, as it is, the skin (in my opinion and always if I'm not mistaken) is related to the BoB and the period in Italy. There is always the possibility that the planes have not been repainted and have gone so well in Africa. In any case, the skin is very well done! 👍
  11. Very nice skin! Excellent work. Historical info: i think that the 4a Squadriglia operated in Belgium during the BoB (that's why the yellow color on the engines) and then returned to Italy (Piacenza-San Damiano). PS: the white band of the fuselage also continues below, wraps around the whole plane. If I'm not wrong.
