Do most here use the speed bar because they are not visible in the Yak's and othe planes? Seems like a realistic cockpit would have a viewable compass, however out of the way it might be.

Seems like that is 99% of why FR+SB is not just FR.

Also color and viewable range of tracer fire? Is this realistic? Did dif nations have the StarWars colors flying around out there? Or is this just a necessary "gamey" addition?

A pilot can get more info from tracer color than plane shape as he is entering the fight. Seems a little odd.

There are limits to the way that the tracer system works however the colors in general are correct (the greens, the blues, reds and yellows).

Yes I use the speed bar...necessary evil and limitation of modeling something that is real without actually having a VR version of the cockpit. Till we do that there will always be some necessary handicaps. Thats ok by me.
