The E-7 has an unlocking tailwheel?

 

The E-4 modeled in the "other sim" has a similar handle but that version of the Emil didn't have a locking tailwheel.

Yep, its tailwheel functions pretty much like the one on the F-4 and the G-2.

If rads are manual, could you advise on the required/avoided temperatures please?

 

Pretty much like the other inline planes: about 60-110 degrees celsius is your safe range.

Thanks! Intersting, in that other sim, the ATA and RPM limits had to be respected because the engine would overheat. Here, it will simply break because it's programmed to do so? Which one is accurate?

Thanks for all your guides Luke.

AFAIK this is correct.

I read somewhere that the ability to lock/unlock the tail wheel was introduced from the Bf 109E-7 onwards and not possible on the E-4.

Control switch and light for the radio.

"Schaltkasten für FT" - as Matt already said, it's the control switch for the radio type FuG VIIa. ;)

 

"Aus" means "off", "Anheizen" means "heat up the radio tube" and "Betrieb" means "(in) operation)".
