Park brakes catch in DCS: Spitfire L.F. Mk. IX Posted Wednesday at 05:35 PM 1 hour ago, Tanuki44 said: Yes, see the screenshot, the joystick button #1 is mapped to this command. Yes, this button must be held for the brakes to be on. If you let go of the button, the brakes are released. The real Spitfire parkingbrake, as @Sokol1_br describes, requires the pilot to hold the brake lever and activating the brakes and then lock the brake lever with a catch. The Mosquito has a similar parkbrake where you hold the brake and lock it with a pin. Using the W key on the keyboard only works if you have a button that is always on, when pressed. It is better to use the BTN4, in your screenshot. That will increase the brakes to full, and leave it there. But for more realism, you should activate the brakes and then lock it, just like in the Mosquito. It’s not a big problem, but I think it will be easy to fix if ED wants to.
