Can someone help me here please? Why does the reading on the directional instrument not match the pilot helper heading? The navigator reads out a heading but if you try to fly that heading according to your instruments, as you are supposed to in a real plane, it is way off course and does not match the pilot helper heading. A bug...or am I missing something? Grateful any advice. Cheers, tpol

tpol,

you can calibrate your directional gyro e.g. on the ground before starting the mission. There's a little knob below the readout, you can click left/right on it.

Desmo...Oh I see....thanks....the little knob completely slipped my attention....I presume we can calibrate it to match the real directional heading. But with what do I align it with? Thanks. tpol

I do not usualy bother myself with the instrumentation as I find flying the formation a heck of a job. I find it more interesting having the Top turret, Navigation and Bombing.

Just my 2 cents!
