Another thing common in DCS planes not only p-51. I am ok with weather of cocpit and interia but who the hell would allow to fly with dirty cannopy some planes in DCS have uber dirty cannopy. why there is not option to wash your cannopy lol

I think people underestimate how efficient the average 'Erk' (RAF WW2 slang for Groundcrew) was in 'Airmanising' an airframe. To quote the recently passed Tom Neil the Erk was "something of a specialist in reducing even the most streamlined form to scrap metal."

This was wartime. The aircraft were commodities, not the pampered treasures they are regarded as these days.

Most day-to-day maintenance took place in the open, fully exposed to the elements, by people who, whilst trained well, were not in the majority long term vocationally committed to their task.

You've seen too many modern day cossetted P-51s.

Besides, considering some of the more critical bugs/content shortfalls (spotting/visibility, theatre appropriate AI aircraft, map inaccuracies) the fact that people are making such a beef about this seems faintly ridiculous.

Hmmm....my canopies aren't dirty, I have no trouble seeing anything and my cockpits aren't low resolution. Maybe you need a new screen.

that's beautiful!

But it looks so much easier to taxi in RL, I think ED has to work on that, he just pushes the stick forward and has very precise controls with the rudder.

Come ED! KA-50 is older and older than P-51.
Why? Why?... :\ :\ :\

The rudder has no authority while taxiing in the P-51. He's using the toe brakes and going fairly slow. If you have rudder pedals with toe brakes, you should be able to do this fairly easily.

The problem is often that you want to taxi faster than just about walking speed or just above it and you get into where the tail wants to break-out to the side very quickly.

Go slow and steady and you'll be fine.

Can someone explain the boost pump procedure? I think he is turning them off before takeoff and then on again when he is about to land.
