Default Changing My Ways

My first love in combat sims has always been the WW2 planes. I've been stubborn and only flew the American/UK planes. Even in IL2.

I've always had an interest in the 109. A small hot rod with an impressive record. Maybe tricky to land and take off but that can be handled with a lot of practice.

It's on sale for $25 right now and a good time to get it. I look forward to the new challenge.

Any advice from those with experience is appreciated.

Don't forget to switch prop control to AUTO after take off.
Main battery and gen circuits are off in airfield spawn

Neither forgot the tail wheel lock to take off.

I think i'll buy the VKB Gladiator too. It uses a copy of the real 109 stick. Just to get in the right frame of mind.

Thanks for the tips.

This won't work. I watched some videos of flying the 109 and shooting down the Spit and P-51. I can't do that. It would bother me too much.

Sorry for bothering you guys but i'll stick to the P-51.

I think, he said that he is not able to handle the sight of spit or p-51 getting shot down.
