  1. I just discovered this issue today when I hopped into the Mi-8 for the first time in a year. The backlights, domelights, position and formation lights all worked fine before. So ED have borked the module and cant be arsed to fix it? Seems like a theme around here..... We still havent had the promised MP, the gunners Ai is fubar and now this? Not a good look ED, sort yourselves out lads.
  2. Got tainted kick last night here. No mods, no textures, been on the server earlier in the evening. Restarted DCS, server let me in no probs. L-39ZA slot.
  3. +1 Guncam is a windshield blocking gimmick. Wouldnt take much to allow clients setting to prevail would it? Tyvm.
  4. Righto, I had this same issue today with the Mission 1 Cold Start Pitch Trim not working: Researched it, found this thread and a few others and tried a workaround that does actually work for me. 1. Open the mission in Mission Editor, (.miz file is located in Eagle Dynamics/DCS/Mods/AJS37/Missions) 2. Save somewhere else outside Eagle Dynamics folder so as not to mess up the original. 3. Open the copy in Mission Editor and move the Viggen to a different parking spot, I found spot #27 works, save the mission, open the mission and you can work through the tutorial no probs. You cou
  5. In fact in the L39 the system is in the electronics package not in the gun itself. It still drops the rpm back when you pull the trigger even when the gun is out of ammo. Plus whenever the rpms drop below 80% the engine will "hunt" or not hold a fixed rpm, leading to porpoising in the pitch axis. Below 80% is not good for L39 smooth operation. Need less than 80%? goto idle. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  6. Test it, it's simple. Forget keybinds for a minute...... Click the two PTT buttons on the throttle with your clicky mouse. Should bring up the menu? They have different titles: 1:Interphone and 2: VHF radio Now map keybinds to operate those functions, radio needs to be on and tuned to the correct preset channel. Then operate the radio PTT.

  7. Trouble is theres lots of nonesense in youtube videos. For an example: Go watch almost any L-39 start up video and they almost always fail to reset the low altitude warning light on the radar altimeter and depart with the warning light still lit. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  8. I can get pre engine start atc response by switching on Battery, Rdo and 1 of the invertors (but not both), then setting the red channel selector dial correctly. Works on Caucuses and P.G. maps. I do not have NTTR or Normandy so cant say for those two. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  9. So is 40 FPS acceptable? I thought solid 60 was a minimum? Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  10. Yep I got stuck there too, just this evening. Was just googling a solution on my phone when the tutorial moved on after a few minutes. Also there was one step where I was trying to unclicky my mouse so I could look round and my personal keybind for that of "X" had been removed from the control mapping and stopped working halfway through the tutorial. Put it back in and then the tutorial popped up a couple of sentences and moved on really fast, I heard the little tutorial 'chirp' and looked up to see the text for about a second before the tutorial moved on. I'm hoping it was about the pa
  11. Me too. It flies nicely but keeps catching fire when landing..........even with a decent ish touchdown it bursts into flames on the rollout Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  12. MIG 21 IS still in service. Maybe not with many major powers though. India still have them and so does Croatia which is a NATO member. Furthermore Syria has been using it in the ongoing civil war and there are plenty of youtube videos of them attacking insurgents. It's probably more likely to see action with smaller countries in local conflicts. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Mikoyan-Gurevich_MiG-21_operators Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  13. Hey thx Yurgon, I had been split between Mi-8 and Shark but now I'll add Huey to my research list. ATB. RDG.
  14. Hey everyone, I'm Dave from Hampshire, England. I've been flying sims since the IL2 Forgotten Battles days, blimey what's that 2004/2005? IRL I have 19 glider flights out of Lasham gliding centre, but I've still got a long way to go to solo! I have to say it was flight sims that got me into it. Anyhow I found DCS last Autumn and have been flying the SU25T and the TF51 to the point where I can full cold start, taxi, take off, fly around, navigate to another airport, join the pattern and land safely in both of those aircraft. Recently, I bought the L39 Albatross and the Kursant camp
