Holy cow this thing makes alot of difference in a dogfight. Especially in those rotary engines that dont spool down fast. I wanted to just point out how much I like the addition and it has made me alot more efficient in a dogfight.

Can you explain how exactly it makes such a difference??? Slows you down quicker or something??

Yeah, blipping the engine pretty much cuts the fuel instantly. Alot faster then chopping the throttle. If you chop the throttle in the radial in the DR1 it still idles at over 1k RPM. Blipping it drops it to near 100 rpm and cuts about 20-30 kph off your airspeed. If you are trailing an enemy and may over shoot blip the throttle and let er rip. At least thats what I do makes for a nice stable shot too since no torque effects are in play and you can line them up easy.

Have you mapped the blip switch to a joystick button?

Mapping the blip switch to a joystick button is a great idea. Ive mapped mine to my throttle, as i found using it and the trigger caused a few problems :?

And I luv my blipswitch, its awesome!

Cool, innit? ;)

Mine's on a thumb switch on my throttle. Works the charm.

Yes map it to your Joystick, it will definetly be a bonus to have on hand. I have mine on the rocker witch on my throttle but am going to move my bomb button and move my blip to the D button on my throttle.

I love the blipswitch. I probably use it at all the wrong moments and for all the wrong reasons, but I think it's great.

I have it mapped to my joystick: my right thumb is on it the whole time.
