I am encountering two problems when following the tutorial:

1. I am unable to find the tanks or any enemies. Any tips on doing this, or do I simply need to scan the whole area with the Shkval targeting display?
2. Getting my weapons to shoot: the tutorial says: "... The cute little plane with the funky lights show the weapon presence indicator (yellow) and the weapon readiness indicator (green) which display the selected weapon. Select the outer hardpoints.". - How do I do that?

Also regarding the weapons thingy, mine doesn't look like in the tutorial, even after take off:

You only see the 24 number. The NC and other light are off. Why?

It looks like your Master Arm switch is off.

That's because I didn't even take off. ALl the systems are off. However, it's the same after take off with the Master Arm switch on.

You need to select the proper pylon with Y/U/I. I have mine mapped to the bottom buttons on my Saitek AV8R.

That works. Thank you. Now I just need to understand how to hover, because I can't aim at the tanks like this. When I raise the cyclic to stop the helo from flying forward, it's like a rebound - the helo starts moving backwards after reaching 0 airspeed. More practice is needed, I guess. A lot more.

This tutorial was the most useful thing ever!

Now how about "how to take off, blow up stuff, and land again"? I keep going splat at the end of missions.

Hehe...thanks, Rusty.

Unfortunately my simming time currently is pretty much taken by DCS:A-10...

Have to add my thanks along with the other 16 pages of them. This was the best training mission I've done and apart from rolling off the runway and damaging my nose wheel, so much that it wouldn't retract, and taking longer to land than it took to fly to the first 2 waypoints it worked out great smile

Yeah I did it the wrong way round. Bought BS...realised I couldn't run it very well. I then saved enough to build a new PC. I bought DCS A10 as well. I'm finding myself getting into the shark more than the 'hog, which is really surprising me. Especially as I'm a sim-noob (apart from a long time ago playing F14 Fleet Defender). It's all good now. I can land on a FARP without tipping the heli over on the sloped edge of the helipad.
