Re: Computer IL2 inoperative

Re: Flight controls - re convo on WhatsApp

That's all great news for you, Andy - kudos!

On the anti-slip - I suggest you get one, it is cheap but very useful. I can't taxi the E7 with bombs without it ... And it is very frustrating to lose rudder control in a dogfight - very annoying.

Re: Bf109 E-7 Horizontal Stabilizer trim

When you map the axis, first press the button which moves the trim wheel forward and then a button which you want to use to move the wheel backward (or vice versa, I don't remember ...). In any case - that is explained on the screen when you map it.

Re: Hardware update

I'd take the i5 and less RAM - I do not know what else you use the rig for and what the demands are but for IL2 8GB is more than enough.
