Hi there, thanks for the prompt reply!
I actually found the bomb and tank release buttons in the cockpit
for some reason i didnt think they worked originally, but they do and the bombs release/ disappear
But thanks for pointing out the controls on the 2D panel i didnt know about those.
As for the drop tank command...I have always had problems with those on various aircraft. for some reason FSX doesnt like to release them by using a switch/ key command.
The fuel disappears, but the tanks stay on the aircraft unless you operate the tooltip control within the VC...not sure why...
When I used to repair army helicopters we would call it 'finger trouble' when the piltos thought there was a fault but actually just couldnt use the controls properly...its probably just that with me!
