Is it just me...or does the I16 not have any trim controls?

No it dose not. Pretty primitive plane really.

Thought so...thanks Georgeo. You are right...it is primitive...but can be kinda fun...especially against bombers. I find that I can get Uber-precise agains bomber engines and drop them like flies. I managed to bag 5 He-111s just 2 missions ago.

Slow speed control is crazy hard though. And that thing with pushing the nose down drowning out the engine...what the crap is that?!?! Must be a fuel-related issue they modelled...eh?

Quirkiness aside...I don't mind that little plane. It would be great for IL2FB Airshows and the like.

The downside of flying the I16 is that you will quickly wear out whatever keys you have assigned to manually lowering/raising your landing gear http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Yep the nose down (negative gee) will stop your motor running http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif it's a carburator thingy - some other planes have that too (like the hurri's)... inverting your plane (flying upside-down) will do the same thing http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif And that's why I don't think it will be of much use in any airshow http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

But overall it's a fun plane to fly once you master it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

A goo dtrick with that is to pull back slightly then roll over and by pulling back on the stick bring your nose down then roll back over to normal. It is very effective at gettign eh nose down without stalling teh engine.

I heard that in single player if it stalled you could hit autopilot and it would magically restart the engine... is this still true?

I don't know if the auto-pilot restarts the engine - but you yourself can do so by hitting the ignition key (default is I) while flying.

Not on an I-16. They require special equipment to start the engine and can only be started on the ground at airfield. Unless they changed this in a patch...

Must have changed it in a patch...I have restared mid-flight several times.
