Bomber problems
« on: September 15, 2016, 08:15:05 PM »
Three sets of B17's on long strat run.  Entire time from take-off to target approach, drones visually jumped back and forth between formations.  Each pilot saw another pilot with double drones, the other with none at all.
Also, went to drop on City target, I could not get bomb release.  Others seemed to drop fine, think they had 500 lb ordinance, while I had 6x 1000 lb.  Tried twice, once on the City and immediately after on the Ammo factory.  Calibrated properly, doors were open, salvo set to 1.  Would not drop.  Checked my stick control, tried keyboard control, nothing.
