Anyone experiencing glitches with the B-25's bombsight? Sometimes, the data is there, sometimes it isn't.

If the aircraft is manuevering, the sight will go blank.

The sight only works when you are flying straight and level, for at least a few seconds.

This was a historical characteristic of the Lofte sight, and probably other gyroscopic bombsights as well.

Besides, the bombsight is really only useful when you are flying straight.
