AWAITING ED NEW DAMAGE MODEL IMPLEMENTATION FOR WW2 BIRDS

 

Fat T is above, thin T is below. Long T is faster, Short T is slower. Open triangle is AWACS, closed triangle is your own sensors. Double dash is friendly, Single dash is enemy. Circle is friendly. Strobe is jammer. Strobe to dash is under 35 km. HDD is 7 times range key. Radar to 160 km, IRST to 10 km. Stay low, but never slow.

One thing I didn't understand is how does he initiates the ignition sequence to start the engine.

In DCS we have to hold that button on the collective, but that's reported as being "not realistic" in the manual (that button does something else in RL). So, how different is the strat-up sequence in RL compared to DCS?

IIRC that's not realistic because IRL that switch is on the other side of the collective, you trigger it with your finger tip not your thumb.

 

But since it was highly impractical in DCS, Belsimtek putted it on the upper side of the collective.

What's really strange with the starter button is that it's actually impractical to use the mouse since it has to be held down for upto 40 seconds. For this reason it makes much more sense to assign it to a HOTAS button, in which case there was no need to make it visible/clickable.

 

Most of what Belsimtek have done with the Huey is completely awesome, but this just doesn't make sense in my opinion.

The button I mapped to a modifier on my throttle CH. I just hold it for 40/40 N1 (or was it N2?). Whichever comes first.

Once you press the button with the mouse as long as you don't release it your mouse pointer does not need to stay on the button from what I've found, I find all of these switches difficult with the mouse though, luckily I have a ch quadrant and the warthog throttle so plenty of switches and buttons in the real world.
