FWIW, the manual refers to leveling out @ .8 to .5 m above the runway.

The slowest I've been able to go is, IIRC, 280 km/h (on the HUD) in level flight with an 11° AoA. Never looked at the steam gauge to see where in the 280 range the speed actually was. Could have been...

I wonder if his throttle isn't coming all the way back to idle. That's the only time I've had issues...when I forget to fully retard the throttles. At Nalchik, for instance, I can stop for the...

I don't know if curves, per se, are that much of an issue. I personally use a pitch curve of around 15 in all aircraft. I find it helpful rather than a hindrence. OTOH, I've never even considered...

Nothing changed with the last update that I've noticed.


But that's a part of the issue and, perhaps, the more pertinent issue. Max range for all three models--well, the A and S, anyway, I...

FWIW, the trailer edge flaps go to 100% right around 350 km/h IAS. The minimum extension is 10% and that occurs at around 525 IAS. In between 350 and 525 they smoothly and gradually retract as speed...

:) No. IN GAME is ~80km for F-15 hot. Just doublechecked this morning. Not 70.

IN REAL somewhere between 80-120. Take your pick. It depends on the source, Russian or otherwise.

No, you're not imagining things. While there are only two flap settings--extended or retracted--the extent of their extension is dependent on the aircraft's airspeed.

Ummm...which real values? The sources you listed can't even agree on the range. Three claim 80 km (which we have in the sim), two claim 90, and one claims 100.

You're not alone. I turned the pit lights on this morning and thought--god, that's ugly--and promptly turned them off. I'll just fly night missions with the gamma pushed all the way up.

I read it on the internet.

It probably was signal power, though, rather than processing power. My memory isn't what it used to be. :)

I think you're finding that the MiG's radar has less processing power than, say, the Flanker's and, so, it's much more susceptible to ground clutter, etc. Against a target that I was able to pick up...

Ummm...15 klicks? In this case, fighter sized target, 80 km... This happened to be the "S" model but it's the same for the "A". So something's not right somewhere.

BUG: AP Aileron Trim Unstable

Latest update installed.

The AP has no difficulty neutralizing rudder and stabilizer trim (to use the terminology from the DCS manual). However, it is unable to do so with aileron trim. The trim...

Hopefully I’lol have time tomorrow to take a closer look myself. Since the AP doesn’t use Ctrl+T, it might be that the issue continues for the AP.

1. No particular reason. I just seem to gravitate to the left side. Maybe the margin between the grass and runway helps my judgement. Since all these are of me alone, it doesn’t create a problem.

If you're referring to aileron trim, then it's not truly centering. That's what your image is indicating. The AP is continually have to retrim to adjust for the roll.
