A quick question.

What makes the hissing sound in the cockpit. I know it happens in the P47.

Is is oxeygen or something?

Just curious.

Also sometimes when I try to pull up or tight turn my wings vibrate and Im just pulling against turbelance (I think). How do I remedy this? Do I slow down/speed up use the rudder? Any help will do.

Thanks

Hi Wotan,

The hissing noise (without being able to hear it myself) is most likley your flaps being extended. Are you accidentaly hitting your flaps key(s) or have you accidentally mapped the flaps to your mouse axis? If you put your flaps down below combat level (i.e., takeoff and landing levels) while at high speed, they will jam and then you will get a constant hissing noise. Not good for your health http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

The buffeting you are getting is the start of an angle-of-attack stall. If you keep pulling back on the stick, you'll most likely go into a full stall. So ease off on the stick to stop it. If you've got someone on your six, you'll have to make the decision; stall or level out and let them get you... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif One can get quite good at riding the plane just at the stall point. This was done by many real life fighter pilots. If you extend flaps, the stall will come on sooner so if you're using flaps and decreasing speed to turn sharper, just be more gentle on the stick.

Good luck.

Alexi

Thanks for the tips.

I must have been hiting the flaps by mistake. Thanks.

Snakes ...........of all the low down dirty tricks they put snakes in my cockpit. Ill have my mechanic shot for the obvious spy that he is.

Ill shove the thing up his a#se when I get back to base..........if I can just keep my foot on its head for long enough.

Ctrl-E isn't really gonna help...

Snakes! Snakes in the air with tiny parachutes! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Seriously, I've noticed if you switch between flap settings quickly, the sound will get stuck when the flaps are already set. Like from combat to takeoff to combat too quickly. Ususally raising them completely and then going to your setting will cut the sound.

nope, it aint flaps.

It happens to me quite a bit in my p39..

usually quite high.. flying gently (might be when i start to climb slightly) you get a hissing sound for a short while which sounds just like flaps but aint.

It remember the issue was brought up here a while ago but as far as i know - cause still unknown.
