Tried to use the mirror but every time I activate it, the game crashes and I had to reset the computer.

I really never use the mirrors..and AFAK, they do have some FPS impact (whcich seems quite logical).

I also use it without any problems.
There are some more aircraft with mirrors, like the P-47 for example. Though most Russian made aircraft don't have one.

I have a G-Force 3 ti200 and have found that is you are running FB in Direct X and anable the mirror your fps will be cut in half but if you are running in Oprn GL you can turn them on with no speed hit at all. These are my findings any way.

LA5s, Hurris have mirrors, but it does sometimes cause slowdown. I keep it on `simple mirror` mode. but sometimes I have to switch that off too.
When it works though it`s really very nice and adds a strange thrill when suddenly the tiny silhouette of an enemy bf109 appears trying to get a bead on you!

Also make sure you have mirror off if you don`t like it, don`t just change plane, cos it`s still active! It will continue to cause slowdown even though you can`t see it!

I have one small problem with the mirror in Hurricane, it is there, but instead of reflection, the mirror is grey and in it reads "Mirror" in blue. The mirrors in other planes work just fine. Anyone have the same problem?

For those having serious problems with mirrors, try running WITHOUT S3TC texture compression (in the FB setup menu).
