i hope so, because we need a counterpart of the ju52 mission possibility for the other side.

Bringing the C-47 without paratroopers to BoN/(BoX overall) would be something like bringing empty water canister into desert. So don't worry.

I would say the same about having mission log entries for paradrops, but here we are without them.

Today, the "hangar runs" of out current Ju-52 look rather different.

This was about a month ago.  The Ju-52's are not expected tp be flying for another year. Repairing them is not even that hard. The real problem is that someone has to sign them off as airworthy. But people who can assess that and that are not the same persons that serviced the aircraft in question are rare and almost inexistent in government bodies. There, the blame-game sets all rules. And who will take responsability? There are younger people now in place that, best case, learned to fly in modern aircraft and are largely clueless about vintage planes. The brain drain is most concerning.

Don't know if this has come before, but has anyone a clue how the 'course selector' instrument works? It's shown in Requiem's 'How to fly Ju52' (about 2:10)

 

Anyone know what it is, how is it used, and can I use it in-game?

It shows the course heading to the nearest radio beacon.

Not sure we're talking about the same thing here.Are the radio beacon things not the swing-arm L-R thing to the right of the clock, and the three-point and moving pointer 'Kompass' to the left?

 

I'm puzzled by the semi-circular compass at the lower right, below the climb rate indicator. It has a handle, and looks like it should be a compass, but doesn't match up to either the magnetic compass behind the yoke, or the in-game compass panel

That is what he was talking about.  It gives the bearing (course) of the closest beacon.  It is a useful  gauge when both needles are just deflected full left/right.  This dial will indicte the course to turn to line the needles up.

 

it is also useful when combined with the distance meter in the AFN-1 to give bearing and distance to the nearest beacon.  

 

The 3rd use is flying From a beacon.  If your intended course is 090, you want the dial to point to 270, then you know you are exactly east of your beacon.

OK, thanks. I'll have to work on this a bit more. So what is the little handle for, and do I need to adjust it manually for best effect?

It works on its own.  

 

One forum member has stated that its real function is to dial in your own course, ie, our next leg is 030 so you turn the dial to it and the needle in the upper left will line up when you are on that course.

OK, thanks for that Plurp. The instrument's name - 'Course Selector' - implies a degree of pilot input. Seems this is not the case. Cheers

She's so ugly that i would like this one added to IL2 too ... with that large sized prop she probably can take off vertically 😉

Waiting for a flyable C47  .... i hate to disguise those Ju52 into RAF, USAF or whatever is needed.

I made this skin out of sheer frustration:

Some More frustrations now 4k BTW:

I given up the whole idea. There is so many multiengined planes needed to be flyable. 
I rather have a good bomber to fly. 
I feel there is no planning on giving this types a meaning full cause. No recce no real meaning online to choose them. JU 52 so slow you never get escort. Basically a ballon that yell shoot me

@jollyjack We have to open the cockpit to drop paras/Canister in flight. Then we hit the bomb release key to drop them. Same thing for cargo but the plane has to be stopped on the ground. Let me know if it works for you. 

The pillow seen on the picture might be here because pilots do not wear parachutes I believe.

 

@216th_LuseKofte The mission builder guy must give objectives to transport pilots. I have flown many superb missions with it thanks to the event Friday Night Bombing.

It would be good to be able to use it without  this requirement.

For example: give bonus to the team when a transport fly back and forth between 2 friendly airstrips.

Finnish server got these missions and the only server where they will cover your approach. And actually give you , if nothing else a vocal reward for supplying forward airbases. And strengthen defences. 
Fir this server I wish for a C 47. And in this server I take transportmissions 

But it is not a genre I hold my breath will be in any way prioritized.

Hey Nil, that was it, me dumbo, was trying to drop crates all the time. No parachutes?; they should practice landing on a camel.

 

About formation ... i put three wingmen flying nicely along with my Ju52.

But somewhere down the Ai flown waypointed route after dropping they all get lost, they're gone at the lancing site

 

Now i am also looking for a ' neutrally' disguised observer plane to cover that Ju52 Flight LoL. Uv2s is too slow ..

Found one that one that keeps up ... Albatross D5:

Some update on "Ju-Air".

 

As reported by the press today, the Ju-52's will remain grounded until 2022. The reason is that the accident investigation has to be concluded and the final report published. Based on this report, the BAZL will issue permissions for specific further overhauls. Hence, the restoration is held up for about a year.
