    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

    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.

    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....

    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.
