Yes, will update soon. The numbers are for P-51 though.

Hi Jade,

I'm getting a 404 error from the Dropbox links

I must have killed the link when reorganizing the dropbox folders. I'll fix them tomorrow. Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks for this Jade_Monkey it's very useful.

 

I noticed a typo - You have P-51 D 51 in the heading of the Mustang page and the index instead of P-51 D 15

Thank you! Great documents!

 

Dare I ask, did you consider making documents like these for Flying Circus?

Please let me know what you think should be included for FC docs. I feel like the only data that I want is the RPM limit and that is not in the game description.

I think that the data like you have for BOX planes would be useful also for FC. Items like max temp (water and/or oil) and time constraints on these.

I don't have specific knowledge on the RPM limits but I think they are limited by the airspeed. If you go over the max airspeed you will overdrive the engine rpm, at least that is my experience in FC.

 

it would be great to a document for FC like yo do for BOX because you can print the required page and have the data when you start flying the plane.

Include anything special to note for the plane.. For example the SE5A has a stabilizer. I flew that plane for years in ROF and had no clue about it! Or the high altitude throttle for DVII, as another example.

@Jade_Monkey well thank you for your work, it is great idea. I use it as cockpit photos.

Only, I found some differences in comparison with techno chat. I.E. A-20B bomber have continuous mode up to rpm 30 (3000) and manifold pressure 40 (easy to remember 40-30). Are your data updated? I do not know what is your source, but as I am lazy, I use techno chat instead of google :)

 

PS: I use plane original units, in this case US measurement system. Is that a problem?

 

EDIT; I just found in past posts that all units are metric (m/km/s). I have to change it in game, and try again.

Straight from the devs notes.

 

The technochat has some leeway based on a combination of inputs, the pilot notes are out of the manual.

@Jade_Monkey is this correct for the P-51?

"The aircraft is equipped with one fuel indicator with two needles for the forward and rear tanks."

Looks a copy/paste from P-47

 

Thank you for this document was absolutely needed!

It's possible, I'll look at it this week and update the doc if required. Thanks for the feedback!

You are welcome.
May I suggest also a chart like this below? Just to help people that are using il2map.info to plan the flights.

Updated the original with the correct data for the P51 fuel gagues.

 

I guess another update will be coming in soon when the Yak9 and Yak9T come out in the next patch.

I believe you still left the original there as well. Now it reads:

 

Each tank has a dedicated fuel level indicator: wing tank indicators are located on the cockpit floor and the rear tank indicator is behind the pilot seat on the left.

 

and a few lines below:

 

Each tank has a dedicated fuel level indicator: Wing tanks on the floor, and rear tank behind the seat (left).

That's why you don't do this quickly and late at night. 😁

Ok, updated the documents again, and also made a thorough run with spell check. Corrected multiple gramatical and spelling issues.

Updated original post with Yak9 and Yak9T info.

 

Added some more details for stall speeds that will slowly include for other planes.

Not sure if you're going to see it here first or rather on Steam, but the dropbox link is dead unfortunately.

Keep it up, fantastic quick reference material.

Updated first post with Hurricane notes and some small improvements (dive speeds, flap speeds, etc for some planes).

The main difference for the G6 late compared to G6 and G4 is the 10 min of emergency engine if MW-50 is equipped.

Not worth republishing all the docs again, it will come with the next plane's notes.
