ROOKIE ALERT!!

I cant seem to drive around the airstrip. It mentions using the wheel brakes to turn but how can you do that with just one brake? :s

Try applying the brakes and rudder at the same time in conjunction with your throttle to turn the plane around. It takes a little practice but before you know it you'll be scooting all over the place!

Thanks guys. This is my first attempt at a serious flier. I'm used to just pressing the accelerator and moving the joystick left and right. :s

If you try the La-7, you'll feel right at home.

the Il2 brake system simulates the system common on most (but not all)aircraft in WWII

a single break lever (usually a hand lever) controlled the amount of brake pressure while the rudder bar, in addition to moving the rudder, varied how much pressure was applied to the right and left main wheels

the modern system of two toe brakes was present on a few aircraft but it was uncommon

Coming into this as a complete rookie I assumed the rudder was controlled by the left and right movements on the stick so thanks for the brief education! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
Can anyone recommend a good key setup or is the preset key layout the best.

If you mean you're using the keyboard for rudder control, stop that! Pick up a set of USB CH Pro Pedals. They're the best, imo.
