Before take-off

Note: The ailerons and rudder take-off trim position should be neutral; the horizontal tail take-off trim position should be set for an airplane nose-up condition.

VERY IMPORTANT: The horizontal tail Take-Off Trim Position Indicator Light on the instrument panel will come on to indicate when the control stick has been properly trimmed to the correct neutral no-load trim position. You should trim until the amber light starts to “glow” on the instrument panel. This will take about 5 to 7 seconds. The light will go out when the respective trim switch is released.

Wing Flap Lever – Should always be FULL DOWN for take-off, with or without external load.

Canopy closed – Next roll into take-off position, heading airplane straight down the runway. With nose wheel centered, hold wheel brakes.…
From a FSX F-86E/F manual

Small tip until the Mig-15 has been made less "Über"..

Try to dogfight with a L-39ZA

I only have one issue with DCS and gunfighters like the P-51D and F-86F - Even If I have the pipper right on the enemy aircraft and keep firing, the enemy aircraft takes too little damage.

I had to almost empty all my ammo with the F-86F with the pipper placed right on the aircraft at appr. 200-150 yards.

And no - don´t tell me about bullet drop or deflection shooting.
With the guns placed so close, gun convergence or lack of also shouldn´t play in.

I don't think manual tuning works for voice comms via the main radio panel.

The only way I can get radio communications going is by using the set channels on the UHF radio.

PRESS S and DO NOT RELEASE S (To enable nose steering) before and during your Taxi to the runway ! Be gentle on the throttle.

When you are centered on the runway and moving straight ahead a few
meters then you can Brake and release S. If you can map the nose steering
key to your joystick all the better.


Hitting and releasing S will make you crazy.

Also most hard landings will result in your nose gear not retracting on the
subsequent takeoff.

Any tips on how to brake during the landing rollout when your brakes are mapped to an axis? Should you press and hold at a slight travel of the axis? Should you pump with a lot travel? Pump with little travel? etc. I find myself coming dangerously close to the opposite threshold more often then I'd like and screeching like mad at the very end. I know they are mapped properly as indicated by the "Show controls indicator" panel.

Screetching brakes were already complained about when taxiing slowly. Probably just a sound bug.
