Trying to drop in CCIP and holding the trigger doesn't seem to work nearly as well as the low altitude drops like before, the bomb seems to be way off target when it opens up and then the cluster...

I liked the low alt drops before, overflying enemy units fast and low rippling off those cluster bombs was really cool, I hope once we can adjust the HOF ourselves we can use them in that way again.

Yes exactly.
Need some more tinkering to learn how to use this weapon properly, maybe tomorrows patch means we can adjust the burst altitude which would be great.

It's great and it will only get better as the module fills out and gets developed further. I don't think of it as paying for an unfinished EA product, I think of it in investing in the future of DCS.

It certainly adds the location onto the HUD when in Nav mode and it's there as a target in CCRP. If it makes a difference I overwrite an existing steerpoint, the MP mission already has five or six...

When Wags did the CCRP video he had a steering cue on the HUD from a steerpoint. Is this something that he did from the mission editor and not yet implemented so that it can be input into the DED?

Is this something that will be implemented in future, has that been confirmed anywhere?

I would be good to be able to switch to Sidewinders without having to take my hands off the HOTAS.

Which part are you getting stuck with? I was able to manage it last night but it took some patience to enter the co-ords as it didn't seem to always accept them and I am not sure why.
