Can you use only the cockpit compass to navigate or you have to o use the speedbar?
Best regards.

The Yak's compass (and the compass on a few other Ru AC are obscured by the reticle. you'll need to use the speed bar or the minimap to navigate

would be nice if this was one of the things fixed in one of the patches,

this AND the ability to see Radiator and flap position in ALL cockpits so that the Hud log can be turned of by those of us that would like to leave it off.

I've always wondered how you navigate a Yak in full real..no speed bar, minimap path, icons etc.

If I had all the money I'd spent on drink..I'd spend it on drink!

Thanks a lot!
I must say I agree I'd prefer flying this yaks without having the speed bar turned on, especially since i try to fly every other plane without icons or the speed bar. I guess you can't have everything...

You only have to turn speedbar on when you need the Yak compass.

Or...For the Yaks, you can push forward on stick and get enough negative gees to float the compass face into view. I do this. Usually, I go nose up some, then stick full forward, get my compass reading and because I started nose up, am not too nose down when I finish with the compass. Make sure you have been flying level for a few seconds before doing this maneuver, as the compass takes a few seconds to stabilize.

Beware that Yak~3 the compass face is reversed, making it extremely difficult to use. They said they fixed this, they did not.
