  1. I accept the argument that the gear door locks should have been fixed in the regiments. At D-15, I think this really should not have been, I will correct it.
  2. Firstly, when you diving at high speed, you should not forget about the effect of compressibility. In this case, it is not speed that matters, but the Mach number. On the left side of cockpit there is a plackard with a speed limit depending on the height. You say that the 485 mph plane is poorly controlled. So, but above 5000 feet it is forbidden speed. One of the effects of compressibility is a drop of aerodynamic control surfaces efficiency. That is why they write that it is useless to use a trimmer - with a large M number, the elevator or aileron itself loses effectiveness. Further. Suppose we have a speed of 485 miles per hour near the ground. At the same time, when 50% of fuel, we can make about 4g, and this is a lot, considering the speed, and the fact that there is no getting away from the “stiffing” of the control - for example, in the same dive report it is stated that the stick force is “relatively” light in dive. And if you reset the trimmer to neutral, it will be 5g near ground at 485 mph. And at 400 miles per hour, we have 8g on the ground level with a trimmer in neutral, and we can get even more if we help with a trimmer - 10+ g. And 400 miles per hour is also pretty much speed... And finally. It should be noted that in the 44th year there was a modification of the control system. A "bobweight" was mounted on the stick. Without its installation, indeed the stick was too light, and at the same time there was a danger of easily exceeding the overload restrictions.
  3. Thank you, friends! To see that people like the result of our work is very great!
  4. Modelsvit Tu-91, 1/72. Work in progress, rebuilding cockpit:
  5. Dive brakes and trimmers on the right side of elevator linked by hydraulic line, an there is no valves in this hydraulic line. And electrical part of dive system - electromagnet and spring in the trimmer control - "blocked" with the bomb drop system, and can be turned off only with it. Do you have any document, mentioned that dive system is can be turned off some kind?
  6. You can not turn off dive system at Ju-87. Control key (LCtrl+D by default) used at Ju-88 and Pe-2. And contact altimeter is not connected with dive system, it is used only for sound warning.
  7. In game you can dive either with and without dive brakes. If you dive without dive brakes, you can engage dive system by press LCtrl+D (same key for recover).
  8. Yes. Trimmer set to "nose heavy". Or retract air brakes (at Ju-87). And... ...trimmer set back to default position, so airplane become "tail heavy" and it is help to recover from dive.
  9. Just release air brakes. And trim aircraft before dive.
  10. In manual mode water radiators can be fully opened or fully closed only.
  11. Thank you! Very interesting and useful.
