    Brakes on IL2

    I'm no expert on aircraft brakes but are you sure that's accurate? I know that's how it is on road vehicles but I think I'd rather land a plane with no brakes rather than with the brakes jammed on, especially if were just one side.

    What is your favourite plane

    If I had to pick - for looks - it would probably be the Bf109 F4 or G2 (before it started breaking out in pimples and blisters, etc.) but I love the look of the Fw190 Antons too (they also have the coolest cockpits in VR), and the 2 Spitfires we have. To fly, I guess it'd be the same bunch except the Bf109s would be from F4 to K4 (Love 'em all!) -Captain Decisiveness

    Spit Mk9 Gyro gun sight

    Dev diary 196 will tell you all you need to know I reckon. πŸ™‚
  4. All good mate! Funny I made a similar table for the same purpose! πŸ˜„
  5. Yeah I was pretty sure the La-5 was air cooled, it was Seb71's comment that threw me. But what I'm getting at is I think both inlet and outlet will have no conflict with water radiator controls, not just outlet. πŸ™‚
  6. I was pretty sure the La-5 is air cooled. But I'm currently on the other side of the world to my pc so I can't check. However looking on Wikipedia reveals that the M-82 is an air cooled engine and the IL-2 airplane guides make no mention of water temperature, also the cockpit has no water temp gauge so I'm feeling pretty confident... I don't think that's right as the La-5 has both inlet and outlet cowl shutters, but I'm pretty sure it has no water radiator, however if I'm wrong and it does the there'd still be a conflict.

    U-2 Force feedback incorrect centering forces (MSFFB2)

    I'll be back home after the 10th of Jan and (if I but the U2, which I probably will) I'll let you know if I have the same problem with my G940.
  8. What I do - if it's helpful - is set the water radiator and the engine inlet cowl to the same axis (and DVIIF altitude throttle can be set to mixture) as they won't cause a conflict. Also I have the 3 way toggle switch on the Warthog throttle handle (the one above the red China hat switch) set to: Forward - Engine 1 Middle - All Engines Back - Engine 2 ...so you can select individual engines and adjust their respective controls, for example if one engine is damaged and you want to close its radiators and feather its prop. (I have the throttles set to the individual throttle axes on the Warthog.)

    Oculus Rift - Vive - VR. -basic questions

    What I do against my Rift lenses steaming up is to set a fan blowing on me at low speed.

    What to upgrade next RAM or GPU

    Where are you located? I have 16gb of DDR3 2400mhz for sale in Germany, however I won't be back home until the 10th but I'll knock a bit off the price for a fellow virtual pilot.

    You know you are addicted to il2 when.......

    I've got a good one: When you fly from your current home in Germany to your childhood home in New Zealand for Christmas and spend the majority of your time with your dad at the kitchen table working on microcontrollers with hall sensors for the new throttle quadrant you're building. πŸ˜‚

    Hello, you must be new here. 😊 Time and budget, my friend, the dev team will dedicating those two things to other, higher priority developments. Don't get me wrong, they're nice ideas (although to be honest they don't hold a lot of interest for me) but there are so many other things that must of us want first.

    Next Colloctor Plane

    Honestly I can't be bothered with DCS. IL-2 is enough for me.

    Next Colloctor Plane

    I know it's absolutely pointless to mention as it would never happen but I'd love to fly an Me-163, it's such fascinating aircraft. I can dream...

    A.I. in 3.008 patch

    One thing that bugs me is the fighter flight leaders not compensating for bomb load. Eg: In my 109G2 career we had to bomb a supply column the other day and my flight leader seemed to be maintaining a normal fighter cruise speed which resulted in (I assume) the whole flight having to cruise to the objective at nearly full combat power to compensate for the additional drag of the bomb. At least that's my theory as to why we were all flying flat out. And at the same time when we have to intercept incoming bombers we fly slowly at no more than 500m then have to climb madly to get up to them (with no speed to evade escorts).
