I am a -bad- Yak-1 pilot. Like really bad. Managed to somehow taxi the plane on my 5th try, including new planes, (though I need to remap the brake control somewhere easier since russian planes apparently don't have toe brakes, just a single brake??) with some fancy flicking of the tail wheel unlock.
Got in the air but couldn't get the gear up (I suspect I broke them taxiing through the snow lol). Managed to "land" but we'll need some new props. The mechanics were shouting at me but thankfully I'm Canadian and couldn't understand a word. Thank goodness for "normal" mode though. Trying to manage the engine and all that crap is going to take me years to figure out in English, let alone Russian or German.
Anyway, that was fun. Can't wait to break more planes!
Gotta remember to record before landing though. Wanted to see how badly I muffed the nose. I thought I was at least level! It was quite the bounce though haha.
Also how you're supposed to taxi without an external view is beyond me. Can't see jack all!
