This was what I initialy though was a bug. Whenever I started "exploring" LB2 map and approached edge of the map the copter flight was reset to 0 pitch and speed. Has anyone experience that?

Now I am thinking that it must be perhaps done on purpose and is just hitting the "invisible fence" sorrounding LB2 world or map. If this subject was discussed before, sorry, but I could not find anything about it in the archives.

I've just had the same problem, trying to reach the low areas at the edge of the map to verify actual heights.
I'm sure its deliberate to prevent you getting in visual range of the edge of the world.
Cheers,

OK so in LB2 the world really is flat! \:D

Yes, it exists in every mission. I just tried it on one of the Lasing missions that takes you to the city (Stepanakert? pardon my spelling) to see if it is constant. I flew all the ay to the NW limits and took some screen shots. I want to establish whether or not this distance is a constant or if it possibly varies by mission/map. Here's what I came up with from that little exercise:

It appears to be 5km S and 6.5km W of the map edge. Many Iranians died to obtain the information. ;\)
