I hope 9./JG52, JG51, JG1, LG1 and EG14 rise up to the challenge! :salute:

We definitely need more pilots on the axis side in multiplayer.

It will be out on the Eagle Dynamics store with the Non-Steam version on December 3rd. The steam version will probably come a week or 2 after.

The steam module can be used in the Non-Steam version, but you cannot use a non-steam module in the steam version.

Wow, that cockpit is a mess compared to the Dora! Very cool.

They certainly nailed that overly-cramped feel, didn't they? lol. I look forward to repeatedly crashing it on take-off.

At least there is no bar obscuring the lower hemisphere of the gunsight!:D

Hiya Chuck O,

Several of us (9./JG52) have the K preordered and are keen to give her a whirl. The Dora taught me to first clear all the control mapping columns before mapping anything and start with a clean slate. Initially I had loads of conflicts that made the Dora frustrating to fly. Now it's much better but flying in SP does not translate much to a server for whatever reason? Seems like SP is on "easy" and servers are "real settings. I make a server now for practice missions. :thumbsup: Hope to be able to download the K4 today and see you soon in the skys. PS: can't wait for the new map though as the current one is the only real letdown in DCS. I've turned into a graphics snob I guess! :)

PS: I have managed to download and try out the K4 and it fits like an old glove!:thumbsup:. A few glitches though like track IR and stabilizer trim not working in SP mode? If I make or go into a server though everything works fine so I'm not sure what's up with that? First impressions are really good though.

Questions:

I cant seem to set rads to manual.
I turn of the auto but the default rads open/close for me go 100% one way or the other?

Also is it just flaps full or 0?

Not sure about the rads V,I don't think they are operational yet, but flaps are just like any other 109 in that you can select any amount from 0 to all at 300k or less. I use about half just before turning base leg and then full on final controlling airspeed with throttle/stabilizer trim.

Hey chief I know what the issue here is. Don't give the ground crew the command to turn on ground power. You have to give the order to "run inertial starter." Good luck on your next attempt!
