Default Multi crew fun

I’m thinking of buying this module for flying in multi crew. Is it fun flying it in the attack version with two people or isn’t there anything to do for the second pilot?

The rear seat pilot can teach and instruct a green pilot seated on the front seat.

If you wanted, you could split some of the responsibilities. Rear seater could act as a navigator and radio man as well as spotter.

I have flown the C-101CC multicrew on the Cold War 1947-1991 server. I was mostly in the back and primarily acted as navigator/observer. We occasionally would switch control to give the front pilot a break. Good fun, but a little bit limited. What would help a lot would be a 3D-model NS430 GPS in the back seat. (Either that or ED fixes the overlay version!) That'd let the co-pilot plot and plan waypoints, etc. and thus add to the complexity of the navigation controls.

Thanks! Very helpful information! Sounds like it’s not at all the same fun as a pilot RIO combination.
