Video: Bertrix BARCAP

Post  MJDixon on Tue Jun 15, 2010 1:24 am

Video from last night when Speedy, Dezey and I were doing BARCAP north of Bertrix - wasn't able to record Dezey's kill though unfortuately (had my own sausage guzzler to deal with. Razz )

Enjoy.

19 Squadron: Bertrix BARCAP - June the 13th, 1941

controlling your speed in the spitfire along with smooth control inputs are what help you to not black out in the spitfires greg.

You'll notice he does start to grey out from time to time, basically when you are in a dogfight you should be riding the edge of the blackout when you are turning.

If you just yank the stick right back, you'll not on ly black out but you'll shed all of your speed, and leave yourself a sitting duck.

One other thing that helps with black outs is using your trim. I'm not sure if MJ uses him trim when turning though Wink

Thanks Chaps. Razz

No I don't use the trim in my turns - something else to note as well, although on the video the engine sound is quite constant, in reality I would have been shifting the throttle settings depending on what I was doing, e.g. diving I'd usualy go to 0% throttle, then full power to climb - then down to 0% again for the next dive, etc - with the video the sounds are added on to the silent recording footage afterwards, so it's not accurate in that regard.
