http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif Hello, I was just wondering, is there a parking brake for all the aircraft on IL2, FB, and PF? I must keep my finger on the brake key (B) at all times to avoid unwanted forward creeping while the engine is running. I looked at the key command chart and found none. Or is there a way I can assign a key command for a parking brake? Any help is most appreciated. Thank you.

on PF there are chocks as well as the brakes that you need to set/configure a key for, this holds it while you run up the engines on the carrier... when you release the chocks it will roll as normal http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

You may also want to lock your tailwheel so you don't have to apply rudder so much during final taking off run. Be sure to unlock it during landing otherwise you may end up ramming something on ground.

If you are not on carrier, you can not prevent your aircraft from moving if there is storm going on over airfield. Unless you hold "B" key.
