We had a discussion about Huey shutdowns at the end of this session, during which I wittered on about correlators and the detent the Huey throttle being there to disconnect it (not shut the engine down). Blade, in his pursuit of actual accuracy and truth, went and checked it and found the following:

TM-55-1520-210-10, Chapter 2, Section III, 2-19 c. says

"Rotating the pilot or copilot twist grip-type throttle (fig 2-5) to the full open position allows the overspeed governor to maintain a constant rpm. Rotating the throttle toward the closed position will cause the rpm to be manually selected instead of automatically selected by the overspeed governor. Rotating the throttle to the fully closed position shuts off the fuel. An idle stop is incorporated in the throttle to prevent inadvertent throttle closure."

Thanks Blade Smile

Due to RL intruding this week I have not made any plans for Thursday but I would like to do some LZ work and give the new guys an hour of formation flying and different formations. Then load up a mission for a couple of hours if that suits. Suggestions on the back of a postcard please Smile Obviously the servers are now running 1.5.5 so thats what we need and SRS 1.2.9.1 unless you hear an official announcement from Dabomb. If anyone needs help testing radio's etc before Thursday please PM me. I will be online as early as possible to also give people the time to troubleshoot radio's mods etc.
Training from 19.00 Zulu to 20.00 then 20 mins maximum between training ending and mission starting. I will check on the server what missions we have but I reckon Showtimes Medevac Down will give us plenty slots including F5E's for anyone wanting to fly them

I will also make sure everyone is familiar with the ADF facility in the Huey during the training period. This is often a feature of missions and its worth being proficient with

....could have sworn I'd posted a reply, but now I can't see it? Weird.

Trying again: I can't make this week - and I'm staying on 1.5.4 until a few days go by without someone saying "oh sh!t, they broke !".

Have fun Smile

The only issue I had was when I first installed it, something did not work, after renaming my config it worked fine. I have had to remap stuff sure but on the whole it loads faster, the MP gui and server screen is crisper, less laggy than previously and the F5 is fixed. Instal the open beta instead of updating, they are both same version now. Also I think the graphics are tweaked and the lighting is different IMO

Hay Cib, big thanks for the heads up about re-mapping. I would have forgot it for sure. Now I know I need to start preparation sooner to avoid people waitning for me. Embarassed
