View Full Version : Question on AI Performance

If I am the flight leader, does the AI mirror my flight settings. For instance, I want to create an offline, long range mission which will require the aircraft to use a lean mixture setting in order to conserve fuel. Will the AI set their mixture to lean if I am the flight leader & set my mixture setting to lean?

I don't think so, but I could be wrong. At night their nav light will be on, whether or not yours are...

Apart from droptanks if available, perhaps setting the waypoint speeds a bit lower may help?

I have this problem quite a lot, as I like to take up the bare minimum of fuel for better <STRIKE>manoeverability</STRIKE><STRIKE> manourv </STRIKE> chucking-aboutedness. And on the way home you're puttering along at 20% throttle... with full elevator trim... little red light for company... and your profligate wingmen's screaming echoing around you...
