So many questions about the Lightning!  I'd like to know more about complex engine management, and basic things like where to find the gear and flaps indicators.

Usually for Il2 GB the go to place for such things is Requiem's channel (there are others, which are equally good):

Thanks, saw that and it's a great start.  I'm still not clear on how I can monitor flaps angle.

There is no way to monitor the flaps position on the P38L. Maneuvering flap setting is 50% deployed, if that helps at all. 

 

Here's an old army training video on the P38 about landing, takeoff and single engine operation procedures.

How to operate the Air Filter lever (right to the mixture levers)?
Is it auto-controlled by the sim, no manual control?
What is the Air filter for and how to use it?

Don't think sand is modeled in-game, so I wouldn't see any use in modeling the filters.

It's not modeled.

Need a Chuck's Guide! 🙂

 

Why? There are already plenty of good resources out there, including those by @Requiem.

Manuals or videos? I'll take a peek but while videos are helpful I find stuff in writing I can resource while flying are more to my way of learning..

Also, Utopioneer did a fantastic job with this set of training missions. Just ran the 1st one (1st time in the 38J) and was pleasantly surprised with the handling..
