F-18 Requests

  • Hi


    May I ask to add a speedbrake indicator light when deployed. It should be left from the UFC ;)


    Thanks

  • There is no visible ILS in the HUD, neither the standby needles do move. Could you please fix this.

  • Can I ask to finetune the speedbrake operation


    On the F-18 the speedbrake is deployed incementally while a single push of the retract button will retract the speedbrake.

    Changed the title of the thread from “F-18 speedbrake operation” to “F-18 Requests”.
  • Dear Jan


    I got a full Hornet F-18C AFM, Performance and NAVAIR. If we get 90% of it to work, we are right were I want the F18 to be ;-)

    But lets start with simple things


    Do you have a chance to implement land based arresting cables in LSMM, LSMP, LSME and LSGS in this sequence? I got the charts if you need them.


    Cheers

    • Please add the FCS BIT page to the DDI. It would be great to have the FCS checks of the surfaces
    • Add the TO trim settings logic - when hitting the trim button
      - elevator trim 12 degrees up (land base TO)
      - elevator trim 16 degrees up (cvn CAT ops)

  • Would be great if we could have stores to be added

    • Center tank, to print STBY 121-50 on the side ;)
    • Aim-9X on win tip
    • AIM-120C on the fuse

  • Please remember that Aerofly is USK 0, weapons are not really suited for children, that want to play Aerofly, too.

    I am not asking to weapon enable - but an option to add addtional fuel tanks makes it possible to fly to Netherlands or Norway like SAF does in real life.


    3 Tanks as an option to add is still USK 0, 100% sure ;)

  • Hi Jan,


    Could you also look at the main gear when improving the Hornet?

    When comparing with RL pictures:

    - main gear track seems too narrow

    - main gear tires visually seem to be on the small size.


    Regards,

    Sylvain

  • I honestly don't understand your requests except the speedbrake light and operation.

    You do have DCS already and in no way the Aerofly F/A-18 will come even close to the DCS F/A-18.

    Very optimistic ;)

  • Jan, don‘t try to do it as real as it gets. Happy to see a bit of finetuning. Navigation is important. Indicators too. I never expect the real system depth, but basics ;)

  • Navigation is all I need for now;)

    Yes, plus the Fuel Tanks, otherwise you will not be able to make it to Onland or Leuwaarden. There is no French Airforce canteen in the air, remember ;)
