    Nice job ! Especially the photos from a cockpict. I would only say that some bombers are to close according to one-wing rule.

    Also I don't get the No-level stabilisator rule in formations ?
    Actually i can't imagine long range missions without it, (longest I flew was almost 4 hours without couple minutes, and once proper maps will be available 8h+ for Berlin and back) and i find the flying on stabilisator within the formations much easyer.

    Just my 2 cents.

    It is impossible to hold precise formation with the level stabilizer. At the very least, you will inevitably drift off course. At worst, you will get lost in turns, climbs, and descents, possibly causing a collision. Flying without it on missions lasting several hours is a challenge to be sure, but that's part of the fun.

    Hi Tank, glad you liked it.

    Let me answer your questions/comments:

    The bombers aren't too close, trust me. We had externals during those flights and everything is just like it should be. Hence the screenshots.

    Screenshots I proveded in the subdirectories that feature external shots are not all from the same moment when in-cockpit shots were taken.

    LVL STAB must never be used during formation flying. I have stated specificaly when and who can use it. Unless you have a gamepad, you must fly without it. This was done in real life. Of course, use little judgment - realy close formation doesn't need to be flown at all times. Only when you enter enemy territory.


    If you use level stab for formation flying, then you haven't flown in a proper formation in IL2 yet.

    I salute you Thor and "your" bombing crew for setting a new standard in IL-2.

    Well actually i created the formation on a ground concrete airfield to have some grid and measured it precisely and i got slightly different results. Thats all.

    Regarding LVS, i do not recognize big difference between gamepad and analog trims situated on most HOTAS joys of these days.

    You call it impossible, I say that its possible to stick with leader on X ranges close to 0 or even less on some axis on LVS in straight flight with ease.
