Default [REPORTED]Flashlight requires power

As per title. The flashlight won't come on until you've got the plane up and running, which defeats the purpose of having it!

As a workaround, I have bound the battery switch to the base of my Warthog throttle. The flashlight works if the battery is on.

If it's the utility light it won't work with the main power switch off but it will work in battery or main power position. I think.

It should be a finger flashlight and independent of aircraft power...

Is it really a bug because it’s not a separate flashlight it’s a lamp attached to the cockpit with a cable

It should be a separate light however, that’s the point. Battery finger lights and/or flashlights are standard aircrew equipment. The cockpit auxiliary lamp is not the same thing.
