The inflight Briefing fairly straightforward. The good thing about this bombing mission is all you need to do to prepare is take the safety latch off, mine is bound to the first stage of my warthog trigger.
A puff of rubber and we are down. I discovered how squirrely the rudder/NWS is trying to land on roads and I added a curve of 30 and a deadzone of 4. Made a huge difference to takeoff, landing and taxiing
Yeah… Seems like they never quite solved the dampening from the SPAK autopilot mode. It is very sensitive in real life, I’m told, but not like this. I too have a curve on my rudder.
SAAB lost a prototype due to this, actually. The button underneath the safety catch is a NWS limiter button, but its function was removed after a complete redesign of the yaw control system.
While it would be pretty cool, the number of times that one would really use it?? Plus its more than one variable - altitude and supersonic speed…which technically changes with temperature and barometric pressure… so more "If-Then boolean logic to work out. The helos do a downwash thing if you fly them low enough but that’s only one variable - altitude.
There’s the physical engine in charge to decide when to make them, just as it takes care of wingtip vortexes and the wing vapors… so, most of the work is there.
But I say it again, not really important plus framerate killer.
