Saw this in the readme posted elsewhere (Still waiting for the game...)

Pay attention to the last line...


"Wing Fold: This key will toggle your carrier-borne aircraft’s wings between the up and down position. Not all aircraft are so equipped. None of the land-based aircraft have this feature, and many carrier-borne planes, such as the SBD Dauntless or the F4F-3 were also not historically equipped with folding wings.
We do not recommend using this feature while airborne.
That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try it once. Or twice."

Was it possible to fold your wings in flight??

I thought they were manually folded, or controlled by ground crew, or at least with a pressure switch to ensure the undercarriage is on the ground!

Sigh... We don't all have crays... You can't do every thing. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

You are also instructed to extend flaps and fold down the wings prior to engine start. Makes one wonder about how the hydraulics are powered.
