Now that flap usage is pretty much an essential part of combat all i'm hearing these days is this thing going off all the time.

It may be realistic but it's giving me a headache.

if its realistic then it should stay but would be ok if their could be an option to turn it off i suppose..

Maybe it shouldn't be that loud, but if it was in the original plane it should stay in the sim too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It`s actually louder then cannon fire. Agreed, would be nice to have it optional.

Apparently it could only be heard just above the din of the engine itself...so...its probably too audible right now.

From pilot accounts that have been posted here, supposedly the flap/no gear horn was only audible if the engine was throttled right back. Which makes sense, since it was mainly designed to warn you if you were trying to land without the gear down.

In original Il-2 u could only hear it if u throtteled down. I dunno why they decided to make it louder...
I am still in love with this game!

Out of all the sounds that drop out or become muffled with the new fangled sound engine the stall horn is never one of them. Bah.

You wont like lockon then if you horns and beeping give you a headache, removing it would be like removing the stukas dive siren.

Flap usage in a 109 in combat is essential? Lol - useful for landing, yes, but not combat. Best way not to hear that horn is not to get into turning fights - it's a waste of the 109s abilities anyway /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Hi,
well according to some manual i read (some time ago) the only reason for it is to alert the pilot about the undercarriage before landing. It wasn't possible to hear at any other point but when at almost idle.

Think i have a pdf 109 manual laying somwhere confirming this but i can't find it right now.

Regards H√¬•kan

Yes, checked it out. Sorry can't copy and paste because the text in the pdf doc is scanned and not written.
Anyway.

It says, I quote: "You will hear an audible warning if the undercarriage is not down and locked when flaps is down. The sound can ONLY be heard when engine is IDLE"

This is stated at page 12 in a Finnish translated manual for the Bf109G2.

Regards H√¬•kan

And this flaps down means LANDING FLAPS, not combat flaps!


==> Only flaps "beep-beep" when no gear down and landing flaps are applied!
