    Hawker Hurricane controls

    This is a list of all the controls needed to fly and fight with all Hawker Hurricane models.


    Hawker Hurricane

    Wheel Chocks

    toggle primary cockpit illumination
    toggle secondary cockpit illumination

    increase sight distance
    decrease sight distance (sets your gunsight to selected convergence)

    adjust gunsight left
    adjust gunsight right (sets the wingspan of target in gunsight)

    toggle gunsight illumination

    course setter - increase
    course setter - decrease

    directional gyro - increase
    directional gyro - decrease

    toggle selected engine (ignition)

    directional controls (ailerons, elevators, and rudder)

    trim controls (elevator and rudder)

    lean to gunsight

    fire guns

    throttle

    boost cut-off

    fuel cock #1 - toggle (main, auxiliary, off)

    fuel contents gauge selector - next
    fuel contents gauge selector - previous

    increase mixture
    decrease mixture

    magnetos #1 - toggle
    magnetos #2 - toggle (optional)

    open radiator
    close radiator

    increase propeller pitch
    decrease propeller pitch

    raise landing flaps position
    lower landing flaps position

    raise undercarriage
    lower undercarriage

    engage emergency undercarriage system

    wheel brakes

    map

    toggle canopy

    jettison canopy

    bail out


    Many of these controls can be set to axes controls, and some are not needed for certain models.
    Put your most used controls closer to your fingertips, for easiest access and better comfort.


    Good luck and have fun.

    Re: Hawker Hurricane controls

    It is possible to leave flat stall in Hurricane? I tried, but i cannot do literally nothing. Plane doesnt react. I used opposite rudder and push stick forwards - nothing. I just centered stick - nothing.

    The Hurricane does have bad spin characteristics. It is possible to recover, but it takes time. A long time....

    Also don't forget to chop throttle.

    Flat spin, you will not get out of. You can try everything and anything but with no airflow over the control surfaces you are out of luck.

    A diagram of where they go?

    Also the course setter is tiny and unreadable ,also the Gyro so I don't need those.

    Yes, the compass and course setter can be a pain, but it’s historically accurate. Once you get use to it, it’s easy to read. I can quickly glance at the compass and know which way I’m heading. The gyro is used to give you a heading, but it’s a sensitive instrument and needs to be calibrated once you are airborne. Once set, put your mouse on it, and it will give you a digital reading.

    The keys and axes go where you want them to. I don’t use any default bindings.

    No, they are not "historically accurate", Course Setter lack an important feature, the reference line - called "Lubber Line", for set desired course, a detail that ruin the experience of try use this instrument "historically". Is need use the dumb digital display (HUD).
    For navigation purpose both are "half done" - Course Setter and HUD.

    Yes, there is a lubber line, it works, and is historically accurate.

    I can teach you how to use it all if you like. Compass, Gyro, course setter, declination, map,...

    Please take a moment to post how this is displayed. The lack of lubber lines in the RAF fighters in CLoD has been a navigation shortcoming since the beginning and I'd like to learn how to display them in CLoD.

    Ok, good, a real pilot. Hi Baffin.

    The two parallel lines which rotate with course setter keys, I understood were called the lubber lines.

    I rotate them to desired course + 10 degrees for declination. Rotate plane until compass North is parallel to the lubber lines (and pointing to red N). With no wind, that is your desired direction.

    How else have I managed to navigate this map as well as training others to do so?

    Have I mistaken the term 'lubber lines'?

    Yes, you have misunderstood the term "Lubber Line". A lubber line is a fixed line across the compass case which indicates the forward and back direction of the airplane. The compass rotates beneath the fixed lubber line and is read by looking through the lubber line. Sometimes they are referred to as "Upper Lubber Line" (Pointing forward) and "Lower Lubber Line" which references aft.

    Entering "Lubber Line" into your favorite search engine will provide more information on this subject than you could have ever dreamed of.

    Thanks for clarifying that. My mistake.

    I'm able to navigate just fine without it, apparently.



    Edit: The lines I was referring to are called boxing marks. Lubber line is a fixed mark on compass which indicates aircraft's direction of travel or centerline.
