Hellooooo! I would love to get involved in some way, preferably flying (Il 2 Great Battles, I have them all)! The trouble is I need to get my head around manual controls (rads, props, etc etc). I'm pretty okay at the basics and am just about getting around to needing something a little more 'involving'. Is there any way to get any training in such matters, with someone alongside? I'm from England, by the way. My preference seems to have naturally landed on the Soviet side, don't know why!
Anyway, just enquiring. I look forward to any feedback. Thanks guys.

Show up on our Teamspeak and I'll teach you everything you need to know about proper controls including a half hour monologue about how it works and what it does. You'll hate it. Everyone hates it.

Welcome Raptorattacker, been looking through some of your skins and they are truly excellent... great to have to you interested in ACG. Our large group training is usually Thursday (This Thursday might not be that populated...Valentines and all that) but I am sure some will be around and if not maybe Friday... then we have our last mission of the current campaign run of the Battle of Moscow on Sunday...

If you want to get a true flavour of what ACG is all about then highly encourage you to fly with us on Sunday.

Sounds good BD. Yeah, Mrs Rap may not be all that forgiving on Valentines! The thing I am apprehensive about is the engine management and such things really but I guess there's only one way to sort that one out, isn't there? I run mostly with custom controls on see. I'm willing to give it a go though. It was pointed out to me that the Flight Leader does most of the navigating and things like that and, flying with others, it is a little more forgiving when spotting (I have NOT the best eyesight, not blind but not the best!). I look forward to it, I've got you bookmarked in TS anyway so I'll get me comms up to scratch and then take it from there.
Thanks for the reply

Ever consider that they may just hate you instead?

I’ll just add that it isn’t as complicated as you probably think it is, especially with regards to the klimov which is pretty forgiving.

I'm sure it isn't but I'm the sort who can't take in info when it's in a format like, say, Requiem's guides (as good as they are). I kinda have to DO it and learn by mistakes! :D

Heyyyy Drifter! Good to hear from ya! I'm a bit tied up this weekend so I don't think I can make it on. NOT such a bad thing as it means it gives me a bit more time to brush up on some manual engine stuff. When I say "brush up" I basically mean start from scratch!! No fear, I shall show my head above the parapet as soon as I can get the things offf've the ground with out exploding!!
