Let’s Learn to Fly – Part 2 – Trim, Engine Management

This is part of a small series in which, by popular demand, I try to instruct newcomers to flight sims like IL-2 on the basics of flying virtual aircraft, whether that’s to help newbies to the game or just to provide viewers of my IL-2 series more info as to what they’re seeing happen in the videos during the various dogfights I get into.

So strap yourselves in, and I’ll do my best to take you from spring-chicken to shite-hawk in one easy lesson. 😉

My setup:

– Logitech Extreme 3D Pro joystick
– TrackIR 5 Headtracking

The game featured in this video is IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 using the HSFX mod.
