  1. Thanks, I often wondered why this happens in the Mil-Mi8 as well
  2. It looks like the fan is on an adjustable arm. Maybe we could just have the option to move it to a less obstructing position ? Realistic and non-heretical
  3. Thank you for your hard work! We are grateful even if we sometimes sound grumpy
  4. MiG 21 flight model lacking any stall is a bug and will be fixed next update https://leatherneck-sim.mantishub.io/view.php?id=939#c1625
  5. Default Apparently the lack of stall is a bug. Shame this information couldn't have got to us sooner as it would have saved many pages of analysis and discussion by the community. Dolphin "Issue related with OB binaries released out of sync with OB version.” Next OB update will fix it. https://leatherneck-sim.mantishub.io...p?id=939#c1625

  7. The lack of stall is apparently a bug and will be fixed next update. Why this information took soo long to get to the community is just bizzare. It would have been great to get it earlier as it would have saved 20 pages of FM discussion and argument in the community. https://leatherneck-sim.mantishub.io/view.php?id=939#c1625
  8. Thanks for the response, seems like we all agree that the updates the MiG has gotten recently give us hope but there is no information about the reasons or direction of the FM updates and core functionality of things like the ASP site for unguided missiles is broken or behaviour is inaccurate. https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=270426 The work and research in this thread below is incredible! If we had some more information.from the Devs, most of it wouldn't have been needed. We would have known what aspects of the FM the Devs were working on and why, and what changes they had made based in what information. https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=270121&page=7
  9. Magnitude 3/Leatherneck. With repeated and undocumented changes to our favourite model, the Mig-21, it falls to dedicated fans of yours to reverse engineer your module for clues to what has changed and whether those changes are a move to more or less realism. So many arguments, discussions, so much research and questioning could be settled with a better flow of information from and to you, the developers of our beloved Mig 21. The most we seem to get is for poor Hiromachi to let us know issues are being looked at while having very little else information-wise to offer us. Why is the situation like this? Is it a language barrier? Lack of time? Fear of bad feedback from the forum? We are all desperate to know what the ROADMAP is for the 21. What problems do YOU the developers see with the FM and other systems ( if any ) How do YOU plan on fixing them if it is possible of if there are limitations we could be made aware of. If other fans of the Mig-21 agree or have something to add, please comment. It would be amazing if there could be some progress on this issue of communication. Thank you Magnitude 3/Leatherneck for your continued development of this old but much-loved moduel.
  10. This has turned in to a fantastic discussion with data collected an analysed. I have to imagine the Devs went through a similar process. Why are they so silent! It's taken 8 pages ( not counting many many other threads ) and many hours of hard work by Mig 21 fans to discover the FM properties when the Devs could have given us this information or discussed the changes and their intentions with us openly, making a lot of this discussion redundant. If we had a more open dialogue with the devs, a lot of the mysteries of the FM would be answered and a lot of the disagreements over realism and accuracy settled. I mean, they don't even mention their changes in the patch logs! It lands on Hiromachi to try and put out the forum fires while having no real information to offer us. It's very frustrating.
  11. Here are some extracts from an English translation of the Bis manual. They detail the use of the optical site and the methods of Air to Ground unguided rocket use in Gyro mode. These extracts indicate that the site, using radar and data from the slant range unit, can provide an accurate aiming estimate. At the moment, if you follow these methods, the site does not uncage as it should when using Gyro mode in Air to Ground. This is either a bug or mistake of some sort. If you attempt to use manual method e.g. Missile mode, Manual Mode, manually enter depression angle setting using the S5 mark on the right-hand dial, the pipper is also at the incorrect hight and does not provide an accurate aiming point. I believe this is also a bug or mistake. I shall provide a dropbox link for the manual, I don't know it's source or accuracy but it seems pretty legitimate. The pages I've included are from 59-60 and 66. https://www.dropbox.com/s/3haomu0ncy...anual.pdf?dl=0 https://forums.eagle.ru/attachment.php?attachmentid=233447&d=1587570549 https://forums.eagle.ru/attachment.php?attachmentid=233446&d=1587570549

  13. If you have a look here https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=266878 they describe some of the strange behaviour from the previous patch. This is all separate from the issue/feature I was describing in my original post on this thread. I was describing odd stall behaviour at high AoA which I believe now was simply a rather scripted simulation of an accelerated stall. In the current model, the accelerated stall, in fact it seems all stalls have been totally removed. As if we have reverted to an older FM until the issues can be sorted but that is just an opinion. Also the FFB has stopped working for those who use it in the current release.
  14. Nope, It's broken. I've checked the behaviour against an English translation of the actual Bis flight manual.
  15. Hi I've noticed recently that the ASP site is no longer working correctly for the aiming of ATG unguided rockets. In ground attack, Auto, Gyro modes and with the target locked with radar ( I think it has to be in beam mode but I'm not sure ) the range is giving below the site on the range scales and needle but the site itself is still "caged" as if it's in missile mode and provides no aiming point. I've been reading up on the correct behaviour of the site using an available English translation of a Mig21bis flight manual the way it describes the site function is what we used to have working in DCS.
