Thanks, yeah, glad to be here. Thanks for the welcome.
Yeah, I've bought the "Limited Edition", it has an insert with the controls mapped out on the keyboard, but there is no "autopilot" listed.
Thanks muchly. I don't use it often, just enroute to the fight w/ time compression.
I'm just taking training missions in this sim for now, I've played Over Flanders Fields, IL2 (some) and started on RB3D and my favorites to date are Dynamix' Sierra "Aces Over Europe" and Pacific Fighters. OFF w/CFS 3 got a little annoying - when fighting as the RFC I found that I was always outnumbered and always at disadvantage. Very dull. I've heard/read good things about the realism of BOB II, so here I am.
I knew it was a good sign when I downloaded and printed the pilot's checklist for the MK II Spitfire and started following it to the letter that my takeoffs improved dramatically; the sim seems very correct and accurate, from what I've read about flying the Spit, at least.
Sim-wise I'm mostly a Sub Driver (Silent Hunter IV). But this seems pretty good.
