    Excellent work Sconesy. Thx for taking the time to do this.
    At present magnetos will flip on automatically when the ignition switch is hit on all planes. So no real need to specify that for start up.

    As far as I know, it does not make any difference whether the radiators are open or closed during warm up.
    Since I have cooked up dozens of engines, because I forgot to open radiators (and maybe this happened to some other people as well ...), I would strongly recommend to open them fully alway as the first thing, prior to starting the engine.

    If you find anything that is missing from or simply wrong with this or any of the following cards, please let me know so I can make the necessary changes.

    Another brilliant Flashcard, Sconesy, and thankyou for taking the time to do this!

    I have sent you a PM concerning hypen use, just so that we can make sure we are using exactly the same format as adopted in your Spitfire MkII Flashcard. I know that you understand it's a good idea to aim for consistency of layout. I couldn't find any spelling or grammatical errors so............. go straight to the top of the class and a reward of two bags of Big Hilda's Doughnuts are 'winging' their way to you as we type! Ha ha!

    Thanks, Sconesy! Good one! Salute!

    Re: Allied Startup, Take Off, and Landing Flashcards

    Thanks for the kind words and the input, chaps. I really appreciate it.

    Torian, thanks for your input.

    I agree about the magnetos. I will updated the card to show 'optional'.

    DerDa, thanks for your input.

    I see your point as I have cooked the engine on many occasions due to the same. If someone could tell me for certain that closing the radiator makes no difference to the time it takes to warm the engine up then I will make the changes.

    Bonditaria, I know how knowledgeable you are about Hurricanes so I value your input very much.

    I'm trying to keep the flashcards as easily navigable as possible and visually appealing at the same time. There is only so much room on a flashcard so I can't get everything on it just the essentials for getting people up and running. It's not perfect, I know.

    Chocks - yes, I was thinking they should be included but they have to be in or out at different stages of the start up routine. This requires more card space.

    Marlow, I owe you a large debt of gratitude for proofreading the cards.

    Excellent stuff, Bonditaria!

    I really appreciate what you've given me here. I've made a few changes to the card. There is still more to do. Hope it's heading in the right direction.

    Re: Allied Startup, Take Off, and Landing Flashcards

    During war Spitfire pilots use "BTFCPPUR" mnemonic for cockpit drill:

    Brakes
    Trim
    Flaps
    Contacts
    Pressure
    Petrol
    U
    ndercarriage
    Radiator

    In game world we got the plane on "spawn" always fueled, with correct pressures, gear down and locked etc. - fitters failure is not modeled, is moot check this items (as advertised in DCS Mk.IX* check-list).

    So in CloD this can be shortened to "CTRFIBC"

    C - Chocks In
    T - Throttle (back or ~10%)
    R - Radiator Open
    F - Fuel On
    I - Ignition
    B - Brakes released
    C - Chocks Out



    BTW - TF could improved the the "picture in the panel" feature, separating by sides, one picture for Red, one for Blue, since the "Enemy wingspan" in Blue planes result in a joke.

    *Even there can by simplified:

    Top stuff Scones!

    Looking forward to having the aircraft handling/management gain more and more of the tasty details in future TFS updates

    Info card is looking great, awesome for first time pilots to have a checklist.
