It not fair to be a bombamdier or whatever they calle and steer the plane at the same time it just impossible. PLayers should be able to put pilot on auto pilot or something and do the babemdier tasks(spelling). But right now if i put a pilot on an auto pilot bombamdier goes on autopilot too. So i think there should that option, where a pilot steer plane and i'm in bobamdier sit doing the velocity and height things.

I agree, and auto level seems to be auto pilot automation to me....??? Can anyone help

The propellor is just a big fan to keep the pilot cool.. when it stops you can see
the pilot start sweating!

A good landing is one you can walk away from...A great landing is one where they can use the plane again afterwards!!!

Pre-set your bombsite for a pre-determined altitude and speed. Fly to those parameters and throw on the "level stabilizer" and switch to your bombardier.

Works O.K. for me (although I don't fly the bombers much.)

Thanks for the info CutterJohn. Are there any good user created missions/campaigns for the He-111? The FB campaigns for bombers are lame and if you are #4 in a flight of bombers you never get a chance to kill anything as the other planes always get the targets.

Unfortunately, you can't change course at all after hitting 'level stab'. The bombardier was flying the plane when on the bomb run, he should be able to use rudder controls to make minor adjustments to course - but can't.

The bombardier can in fact use the trims to make small sterrign adjustments. One the level stabilizer is on, switch to bombardier view and adjust course with rudder trims!

I don't fly bombers but am familiar with their antidote http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The Yak-9T will dewing (read at root) almost any bomber in 2-3 well executed passes. Those antitank charges just love to explode on things. I know i will get flak from you bombers, but then the Yak is no fun to fly. I love the Zero personally and that is no match for an allied bomber.
