If im bounced while flying with open canopy, will i be able to bale out faster than with closed? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/93.gif Or is it just eyecandy http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Hopefully you'll be able to bail faster. But there needs to be some negative effects as well.. freezing to death in high altitude perhaps http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif

it would be nice (tho prolly infeasible) to be able to lean out the side and look ahead of the plane, Firepower add-on style.

dont get me wrong, i dont like CFS3, but when i read about that feature i had to go 'cor, that would be really useful in IL2...'

Open canopy should

1. Slow you down.
2. Increase fuel consumption.
3. Aid bailout.
4. (Depending on sound in the game) Make it easier /harder to hear enemies.

Yep, that would be a good feature indeed, but unfortunately this is impossible with the IL-2 engine http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/cry.gif

hahahaa - yep

Like me F19? always a little too close to the ground when you finally decide to punch out?..

Then after you press the necessary keys and nothing happens for a looong time - maybe you pressed &gt;shift&lt; instead of &gt;ctrl&lt; then the canopy pops off then the ground hits your plane "pilot killed" heheheehee

Sorry gang, I can't resist...

What about....if I have the canopy open and I go inverted without enabling the seat harness function of the conf file will I...fall out?

Sorry, sorry... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif
