Two kinds of people, LOL

Thanks all.

WRT the trim comments --- so you folks trim before the break? And then retrim after dirtied on the downwind? And then again as you get in the groove?

Case I: why manually sweep wings back?

As we enter the pattern, ~800 ft, 300-350 kts, wings manually swept back. The wings get switched to auto in the break.

Correct?

As we typically fly with wings on auto, why not keep wings in...

Interesting. Pretty sure that the radar remains emitting after trapping etc. in the sim, which is why I thought about this. In the grand scale of things, relatively minor!

Is it SOP to Have Radars On While On Deck

While being spotted, waiting for T/O, landing, or taxing around, are the aircraft radars on? Or are they forced to be off to protect everyone from all the radiation?

Why is my E-bracket stuck so high up in the HUD?

The simple answer is, of course, that I am an idiot and a crappy flyer (would not want to use the term "pilot").

I would still like to know "why" as in the mechanics of what I might be doing...

Makes sense, thanks.

The only reason it occurred to me is because of Bio's book, as the other poster mentioned, but that was only in the context of BFM not landing.

Option to Get Jester to Provide Repeated but Updated Range/Bearing to Contacts?

Jester does a good job with contact bearing/range on first acquisition or lock. Now and then, he provides updates. But this seems random and not always at the correct time.

(1) Is there an option...

Suggestion/Request: Have Jester Call Out Energy States

Either in BFM or recovery/landing, it would be nice to have an option for Jester to call out speed/altitude (or just speed) every XX seconds (10, 30, 60, 120, etc.).

Does Jester automatically change azimuth to keep target in track when cranking?

Four scenarios:

(1) TWS has targets up ahead, classified, prioritized
(2) TWS has targets up ahead, classified, prioritized AND supporting Phoenix missles in the air toward them
(3) Target is in...

Ok. just encountered this.

But ONLY in multiplayer. Been playing SP for a while with no issues. First time I took the Hornet into MP and locked a target up, encountered this issue.
