I was curious how the trim switch feels when mounted and I have a spare broken Warthog grip lying around, so I Dremel'ed out the trim switch hole to fit it. For comparison, the stock hole is about...

Sort of, but not really. There are two components, the lua script and the Arduino library. The lua script opens a multicast UDP server on 239.255.50.10, with port 5010 for receiving data from the...

I believe this is a long-standing issue that's been around since DCS 1.5, and is a result of the smoke emitted by the rockets and Vikhr. If you have the Shkval looking at a target, the FPS will drop...

My bad, you're right, it's in m/s, not km/h. However, that doesn't change my point. The gun is perfectly capable of correcting for that amount of wind, it's just not doing it properly.

I'm moving very slightly up and to the right, the gun should have no problems compensating for that small amount of movement; otherwise it'd be useless in combat. The wind speed shouldn't matter as...

There's definitely a bug. Here's a 26km/h crosswind blowing directly from left to right with a tank 3.1km away. The rounds land left of the tank. I re-locked it 3 times to make sure that it wasn't a...

The cannon should be wind-corrected, and 3km is near its max range, but still usable. Can you provide a video or a track showing the current wind and how you're employing the cannon?

I mirror this as well. You've always had to click on the bottom part of the switch or else risk closing the cover instead, but with the cockpit update the click region was reduced significantly.

It should already be aligned when you start in-air, you just have to lower the collective and not get into low rpms.

Roth is correct, they're flashing because the INU isn't aligned yet, so auto-hover can't work. As a result, turning it on will cause the 3 channels to flash to let you know that it can't do that. For...
