If you switch to gear 2 at 3500 meters you lose about 25-30 km/h top speed as opposed to sticking to gear 1. And that's quite a big of a disadvantage.

 

 

Right, I see what you mean now. I was only looking at the change in manifold pressure and not the speedometer. :blush:

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...

%23_What%20are%20these.JPG

 

 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...

 

 

The labels on these wheels are (Google) translated as:

 

Upper wheel (seems a kind of fuel cock)

 

закрыть = CLose
гАЗ = Gas
откр = Open

 

The lower (the middle label dont make much sense - maybe relative to mixture...?):

 

богато = Richly
высотный = Altitudinal, Hight-Rise
бедно = Poor

I think it could be usefull for new players to make also a reference which controlles they need to set up for each individual plane.

The labels look to me as if they apply to the adjacent controls - I think the wheels may just be control friction adjusters.

Though since todays patch the yaks flap control does not move the flaps at all.

Yak 1 flaps are working ok for me. Maybe your airspeed was too high for them to deploy?

I have not checked this as I have not had occasion to even launch the game in the past week, but Hot_Pursuit has a good question; the flaps in the Yak-1 are pneumatic not hydraulic, so they will not deploy if your speed is too high.  IL-2 is the same I believe.  Seren if you happen to check again please let us know what you find?

Dakpilot (and after your post, AndyJWest) posited that they were friction control wheels to adjust the stiffness of the levers next to them.  The blue levers are the mixture controls, and the black levers are the throttles, and that fits well with your google translations of 'richly' and 'poor' (rich/lean mixture), and 'altitudinal/high-rise' would be in reference to adjusting your fuel mixture based on altitude.  'Open'/'close' on the 'gas' control clearly means open/close on the fuel flow, aka throttle.  My initial guess earlier in the thread was that they might be manual trim wheels for elevator and rudder trim in case the electric controls malfunction, but i think friction control wheels for the adjacent mixture and throttle levers is a much more likely answer.

 

I think it could be usefull for new players to make also a reference which controlles they need to set up for each individual plane.

I agree!  Get to work on it!   :biggrin:  But more seriously, controls are set globally, not set individually for each plane.  One should set up all all of his controls and then by looking at the cards it is quite simple to see which controls a plane has and which it doesn't.  The controls every pilot should have set:  

pitch; roll; yaw; throttle; mixture; RPM; prop pitch (auto/manual and up/down); flaps; landing gear; tail-wheel lock; wheel brakes; dive brakes; elevator, aileron, and rudder trims; horizontal stabilizer adjustment (used only in 109s in place of elevator trim, and I suggest binding it to the same keys/axis as elevator trim); supercharger gear; MW50/forsazh injection; water radiator; oil radiator; cowl shutters; MG's; cannons; rockets; bomb release; bomb-bay doors; engine start (magnetos); landing light; nav lights; cockpit lights; all your view and interface controls; and of course, CTRL-E for engine boost!!   :lol: 

I have probably missed a couple, I am certain these are not all the exact names you will find in the game UI, and more controls will need to be bound as new features come into use, like the dive siren and the bombsight controls.

 

Thanks again for all the feedback and help you gentlemen are all offering!

The "funny thing" is that I had found a drawing that say this (friction),  but I paid no attention - due his simplicity... :P

I've no idea how it works in '46, but that's how it works in BoS. All graphs i've seen of the La-5 also show that its lowest speed (between the critical altitudes of the supercharger gears) is somewhere around ~4000-4200 meters and that's the best altitude to switch to the other gear in BoS too.

Thanks Matt I will amend this in the next revision.

 

 

The "funny thing" is that I had found a drawing that say this (friction),  but I paid no attention - due his simplicity... :P

Ha that is funny, but I'm glad we have it sorted out with certainty now :)

 

 

Thanks for these very helpful guides ive only had the sim a few days , these are very useful.

I'm glad you appreciate them, and I had a bunch of your skins too, I believe.  If I recall correctly you gave me permission to redistribute some of them in a skin pack, so thank you as well.  I hope we get to see some of your work in the skies over Stalingrad in the future...  Welcome to the IL-2 Renaissance!!

=============================================================

"I own BOS and can see where the team is trying to take us. I approve of their vision. I will get early access again which is fun for me even more than it is important in any way. I get to see the new aircraft and maps as they occur and that is a form of excitement on a nearly weekly basis through development. In short, it is FUN for me to have early access and I am willing to open my wallet to get it. It is a reasonably well informed purchase." - Herr Murf

Any idea of whether there will be Fw190 and He111 cockpits too?

 

These sheets are VEEEERy useful and I use them with all my planes :) 

 

I want to learn more about the He111 engine settings (RPM and manifold pressure)

Very handy to have, even when you already know most of the things it's good to have something to quickly look up the hard facts when in doubt.

hello!

first of all thank you so much for this. makes flying much easier!

second, may i request a max water and oil Temp for each plane to be added? also the yak is missing recommended Manifold pressure for climb and transit.

 

cheers!

Yes I will be doing them; it has simply been a matter of prioritizing.  I have been extremely busy with a new position in my job, and I was also becoming frustrated that as soon as I perfected a card 777 would make some small change.  I decided to slow down and do updates less often so I was not continually revising and checking them.  I definitely plan to make cards for the Heinkel and FW, be sure ;)

First - you are quite welcome!  All of you who have thanked me with such enthusiasm are very welcome - I continue to be gratified by all the love you all are showing my little project :)

 

Secondly, the missing data is because I poached all my data from SYN_Requiem and pilotpierre.  The numbers for climb, transit, etc came from pilotpierre's notes which Requiem only added to his videos after making his first couple of videos, so some of that data is missing.  I have not had the time nor inclination to do the testing and research necessary to find those values, but if you have numbers to give me I will be glad to include them if they check out :)  As for the max temps, that is a good idea.  Hopefully I can find room; a couple of those cards are getting quite cluttered, and I dislike clutter.  Oh well, that is the nature of trying to smush all the valuable information possible onto one computer screen.

 

These are still really a WIP - the game is still in pre-release so I hope you all will be patient with me and consider my cards to be in 'pre-release' as well :P

well, take your time, apparently FM's change every other week for now, so waiting for the final release, and keeping these as a teaser, is a good idea.

 

I might try to find out the limits for the yak 1b in particular since i'm inclined to make this plane my main ride for the USSR. AS for the extensive testing, i'm with you, i praise those with bravery and patience to do it, but i dont fancy doing it myself :P

 

Cheers, and thanks one more time
