Right,I have to set bomb velocity.This is all I could get out of the "readme".

The way I got it,things in "free fall" will hit a terminal velocity and stay there.

OK,roll over,airbrake out,cut throttle,keep sight on target,drop bomb when horn sounds,get outta there.

But why set bomb velocity if things in freefall attain a terminal velocity?

Fact is,I need advice on using this sight.

Bombsight velocity is used when level bombing, in for example the He-111.

You set bombsight velocity to match your True Air Speed, and when you engage the bombing autopilot the sight should track the target.

No need to do anything in the Stuka D-5 but....er... dive

I thought the bombsite velocity did matter for the Stuvi, it would be how fast you are diving. When I use the Stuvi sight, I mainly fool around with the altitude setting. Seems pretty accurate.
