Anybody have suggestions on to setup the bombsight on the keyboard? What keys do they use?
I have tried different key bindings with no success. I would like to setup the B-25.

Thanks

I have mine set up on the 10 key since I don't use any of those for anything else. They are easy to use when flying and have enough keys to accomodate the bomb site.

Exactly where do I find the instructions on setting up the bombsight(s)?

Also,when I toggle the bombsight, a circular scale briefly appears in the 'sight window and then disappears, leaving the effect of peering through a magnifying glass. What's up with that?

The sight symbology will disappear if your plane banks or turns. Flying perfectly straight and level is the main prerequisite to doing a level bombing attack. Usually by using the level stabilizier, then trimming the plane.

I know there are bombing tutorials somewhere, so I'm sure someone will post a link to one of those.

There must also be something in the manual about the bombsight. Not the paper one, but the ethereal one.

Snowman-
Thanks for the reference. I have a lot of studying to do!

"Ethereal" = elegant. Kudos.
