Hello!

I noticed that a lot of DCS pilots still do straight-in landings and I believe they're missing out, as joining the pattern with an overhead break is so much fun.

So I made a tutorial about the so-called overhead break or maneuver (initial and pitch approach), available here:

https://youtu.be/WxwtRTWfeE4



I'd be grateful to have your feedback so that I can make better tutorials in the near future.

Thanks!

Steinsch

The overhead break is one of the fastest ways of landing aircraft, in particular large numbers of aircraft. This is a good demo for landing a single aircraft, I like your precision smile

Nicely done, with fantastic VFR cues for those new to the move. Welcome to this group, and thanks for your contribution of knowledge.

Nice video - you are very precise - do you use WH stick? And with curves added?

Thank you! No, I broke my WH trying to get rid of its "sticky" effect. Still crying about that...
I'm now quite happy with the X-56 with the weakest spring. Curves are set to 20 for X and Y axes.

Still do this on Il-2, doing this as I hit a F-14 on landing despite LO saying runway clear.
