    That looks really fantastic, Scones!

    One small editing note: the mixture lever (3) auto-rich position is fully back, not fully forward.

    Here's a more full explanation: https://theairtacticalassaultgroup.c...l=1#post193803

    I am going to "sticky" this thread - it will be invaluable to new (and experienced) players.

    Excellent stuff Sconsey, thank you and well done.

    It must have taken you some time to put it together?

    That's a great idea Sconsey

    I am sure that your flashcard will prove to be a great help to the community, especially players unfamiliar with the Spitfire

    That's nice work mate! Funnily enough I'd recently been musing on the idea of creating something like this for the 109. Anything we can do to aid the new players helps. I know for damned sure I'd have found them useful!

    Hi Pans,

    Our team putting together the manuals for 5.0 have been discussing this form of visual aid to be included.

    Sconesy's effort had landed on our laps. Good timing I say!

    Great effort and looks really good!

    Come on, join the club, as Pattle already suggested.


    I think you should put 'Open Fuel Cock' to the first section about starting the engine already.
    For the starting proceedure it would be nice to add that throttle should be opened to about 10% before pressing 'I' and opened further to about 20 % after the engine caught on.

    Why bother with mixture at all? You never need it.

    S!

    Thanks, DerDa.

    I appreciate your input. The mixture may not be necessary as you say but I'll leave it as is for now.
