  1. Looking at the photos mvgas and you posted, it seems that the general movement is correct in the DCS version, it's just that the travel is approx 99% too large. I don't see where these pedals could move parallel?!?
  2. That's the way they sound (without helmet). https://youtu.be/K88r1CMOh0o?t=320 Since e.g. the TF30 is a totally different engine I assume that it's doesn't sound similar.
  3. You are correct. I've reported this bug right after the initial release. But as 5ephir0th pointed out, the actual range of movement is only very small IRL due to the pressure sensors. (similar to the sidestick)
  4. The 2.7 J85 sounds definitely much more realistic, from what I remember IRL a few decades ago.
  5. What is the problem? Even without wheel brakes the nose will start to drop.
  6. Don't forget that 13° is already the upper limit. Flying the approach at 11° and slowing down to 13° for touchdown is perfectly fine. I don't understand what the catch is with the three point attitude? Lowering the nose should be controlled with the wheel brakes while keeping the stick fully aft.
  7. As mentioned before, spool up for the go around case isn't the reason or a factor. The reason is that the F100-PW-200 has a slightly better throttle response at higher RPM, hence with the boards speed control is a tad easier. The -220 and the F110-GE-100 the difference is basically negligible.
  8. Doesn't the opposite one deflect down and increase lift, so the total amount of lift doesn't significantly change? A loss of lift usually occurs with roll spoilers.
  9. Spool up time isn't a factor anymore since many decades. Idle to mil could take >10sec with first generation jets. More recent engines like the Hornets 1970s F404, require less than 3.5sec.
  10. The higher the speed, the more effective the speedbrakes (applies to all aircraft). If the boards aren't extended already on final, extend them as soon as you touch down.
  11. I did have this problem as well and I love flying the F-5 in bad weather since it is very immersive and realistic! If there are no procedures, I've designed a let down which works with basically all TACAN equipped aircraft/airfields.
  12. Not only due to GLOC, also due to aerodynamic reasons e.g. consecutive aileron rolls are a no-go on many combat aircraft, e.g. the F-15.
  13. The main problem with the yaw SAS off is that rudder trim isn't available, which means that during single engine ops and/or asymmetric loads, flying the F-5 is more demanding. The -1 states that The aircraft can be safely flown without augmentation throughout the entire flight envelope.
