MiG-3 cockpit guide and operating notes


Recommended Posts

post-549-0-88449400-1450800981_thumb.png

 

Engine: AM-35A

Max Continuous Power: 1120 mmHg, 2175 RPM

Max Emergency Power: 1210 mmHg, 2175 RPM

 

Supercharger: single-speed

Fuel mixture: manually controlled; increasing this to the maximum setting will allow the engine to function in boosted mode

Oil Radiators: manually controlled

Water Radiators: manually controlled

 

Tailwheel: non-lockable

 

Lighting: cockpit, navigation, and landing

 

Adjustable trim: pitch and yaw


Flaps: by default, the flaps will lower to their maximum setting. To decrease the angle to which they will deploy, press and hold the Flaps Up key until the desired angle is reached. Conversely, press and hold the Flaps Down key to increase the angle. The max flap angle can be seen on the floor of the cockpit, just ahead of the flight stick.

 

Weapon systems: the ShKAS, 2x UBS, and 2x ShVAK weapons are assigned to Weapon Group 1. The UBK gunpods and the default single UBS machine gun are assigned to Weapon Group 2.

Ok, thanks.

I'm trying to put together a sheet with all relevant data from all planes.

It includes temps, rpm and manifold settings at T/o, climb, normops, emerg and landing, as well as different speeds for different ops.

It's quite a bit of data to wade through, so I'm glad with all the help you provided so far.

 

:salute:

 

 

Edit:

The rocket control panel is also for the bombs.

Ok but where is the stick for beating back the horde of hot Russian women who will inevitably congregate around me when I land anywhere in this thing?

 

It's beautiful, isn't it?

I was googling for check list or operation notes for this plane, but no luck.

Thanks LukeFF.  I'm so glad that you make these for all the new BOM aircrafts as they come out.  Maybe it would be worth mentioning on the first post that increasing the mixture will allow higher manifold pressures?  Just a suggestion.

Good idea; I've amended my post. Thanks!

Gee, Bando, it would be great if you could do that!

 

I've been thinking of doing a spreadsheet as a ready-reference if one wants to hop into an aircraft that one hasn't flown in for some time and one doesn't want to have to have a few test-flights to re-learn all its peculiarities - I was thinking of the following:

 

 

Tailwheel                              Lockable or Not?

Torque                                  To the Left or To the Right?

 

Take-off Flaps position          x%

Rotation Speed                      xxx kph

 

Landing Flaps position           x%

Landing Approach Speed      xxx kph

Touch-down/Stall Speed       xxx kph

 

Individual wheel brakes         Yes/No

 

Standard Armament               xx mm Cannon

                                               xx mm machine guns

 

For those who are into CEM, there would be a load of other things to tabulate eg max radiator temp etc

 

One can get a lot from Chuck's Manual but, of course, that dealt with the BoS aircraft and not the BoM aircraft.

Thanks for the guide LukeFF.

 

My tacho reads 2075 rpm with fine prop pitch, even in boost mode.

 

Is your listed 2175 rpm a typo or am I doing something wrong?

 

Yep, good catch. I was reading the tachometer incorrectly. Thanks!
