These started out being just for myself and my pals, but I think maybe others might find them useful.  They are not as detailed as some others out there, but my purpose was to show all of the cockpit controls using only one picture for each aircraft.  This way people can put them on their second monitor, laptop, tablet, or phone until they are familiar with each plane's cockpit.

 

The aircraft notes are largely drawn from these excellent cockpit familiarization tutorials by SYN_Requiem, which many of you have probably seen.  Many thanks to both him and his friend pilotpierre, who generated very helpful notes on complex engine management.  Awesome work, guys!   :cool:

 

If you find any problems, please let me know so I can address them.  I hope someone out there finds them helpful! 

 

**UPDATE**

2014-06-16

Added units for fuel pressure and oil pressure gauges in all planes (and nitrogen pressure in Pe-2)

 

2014-06-12

Added La-5 (Series 8)

(engine management notes not quite finished yet)

These are gorgeous, Lodebeard, and I can't believe I'm the first to comment as such!  I have a little bit of design experience, and I find these reference cards both beautiful and incredibly useful.  

 

After downloading them I used Photoshop  to raise up the brightness by 150 (except the "Performance Notes" portion), then printed them. Otherwise, they print out pretty darkly for my tastes.

 

(I noticed that you misspelled "Altimeter" in both the 109 cards, so that's one small edit for you.)  

 

 You and Requiem are creating wonderful guides for those of us who don't have the time to properly immerse ourselves into these crates!   :salute:

Never could tell what was what and what was were in these European planes (though I've pretty much remembered the Me109s panel from other sims).

Thank you for your words of encouragement, Charlo!

 

I have corrected the spelling on the 109 altimeters - Thanks for pointing that out; none of my three proof-readers noticed!

 

I have not tried to print them yet myself, but I suspected they would be too dark, particularly for an ink-jet.  Perhaps I should make brighter printer-friendly versions?

 

 

Anyway, I am glad you guys dig 'em :)

Just made minor corrections to the labelling on the Yak and Stuka cards.  The changes are applied in the first post, so those are always going to be the most up-to-date versions.

They look fantastic on screens as they are, and it may be difficult for you to hit the right level of brightness to match different types of printers. I would recommend suggesting to those who plan to print them to consider brightening them up, as needed. I suppose that is now built into this thread, and is why I shared my own practice of brightening by 150 all but the "Performance Notes" portions before I printed them on my work's color laser printer.

I'm following this thread in the hopes of seeing an LA 5 reference card and future cards, as well. :)

I am very happy so many of you are enjoying these.  Thanks for all the support, everyone!

 

 

Nice to see them released Lodes, thanks for taking the time to put it together. I've linked to your thread here from my one.

Thanks for doing that Req, and thank you for all the work you put into your projects :)

 

 

...I printed them on my work's color laser printer.

I'm following this thread in the hopes of seeing an LA 5 reference card and future cards, as well. :)

I like the way you operate, dude :lol:   And yes I will be doing the Lavochkin, Focke-Wulf, Heinkel, and Peshka, but I will be waiting until Requiem releases his familiarization videos for each of them.  The performance and CEM data he and Pilotpierre provide in the videos is so valuable that I don't see much point making cards for a plane until I can include their information with it.  Requiem is working on the Peshka now, so that one will be next.  As for the Lavochkin, it is my understanding he is going to wait until the plane goes into multiplayer because until then it is very subject to changes in performance, etc.  So those planes are all coming, but not before they are ready  :cool:  

 

 

Lode beard, they are excellent references, many thanks for your efforts.

You're quite welcome, Pierre!  And thanks for the work you put in helping fine-tune Requiem's tutorials.  You guys are rockin' it hard and are going to help so many newbies when the game goes retail.  Big respect  :cool:

 

 

Phenomenal  work dude, can't wait to use them. I'm going to try printing one out on photo paper to see what it looks like.

Hey thanks brother :biggrin:   Let us all know how they turn out on the photo paper.

Nice, but here are some corrections for translations of soviet aircrafts:

Il-2: the main alias for this aircraft is "Gorbatiy", what means "hunchback".

Yak-1: some russian virpils (not actual pilots) saing "yakor' ", what means "anchor"

Thanks for the help to a novice pilot like me :)

You're very welcome, Matthias.  Hang in there - this type of simulation has a very steep learning curve, but it is the most rewarding kind of experience a person can have in a video game.  Some of the best times of my life were in the glory days of IL-2 in Hyperlobby, and I am so excited for this new dawn in WWII flight simming.  That is why I want to help new players such as yourself.

 

 Keep practising, seek out friends to teach you, and most importantly, learn to enjoy being shot down!  If you see me online holler at me and I'll come wing up with you.  ~S~

 

 

Nice, but here are some corrections for translations of soviet aircrafts:

Il-2: the main alias for this aircraft is "Gorbatiy", what means "hunchback".

Yak-1: some russian virpils (not actual pilots) saing "yakor' ", what means "anchor"

I have read of the name 'Hunchback".  I love it as a name for such a tough and ugly workhorse of an airplane.  I went with "Sturmovik" since it has come to be synonymous with the Il-2 due to the name of this game we love, but I almost went with Hunchback.  

 

Yakor' is not a name I have read of.  Quite interesting!  Do you think this was a more common name for Yak-1 than 'Krasavyets'?

 

 

Do you have any idea what the grey wheels next to the Throttle are? And the red levers in front of the magnetos?

I do not know what those are, 6high.  I wonder if the grey wheels are manual trim wheels for if the electronic trim switches fail?  As for the red levers, I have no clue...

 

Does anyone else have information about what these are?  They don't function in game, but I would like to know for curiosity's sake...

Believe it or not, I don't have facebook.  But you have my permission to post them there if that is what you are asking  :cool:
