Hi I have just bought IL-2 Forgotten Battles. I spend most of my time sharpening my skills on SH III. I am struggling to raise lower landing gear with the key "G". I can cheat after take off by putting autopilot on for a few secs and everything works, but then at the end of the mission I cannot lower it. Any suggestions? I have tried re-assigning the key but that did not help either.

some aircraft you have to assign a manual raise and lower keys (ie ALT G for up and SHIFT G for down) then tap the keys to raise and lower the U\C

this happen on the I-16 I-153 and F4f I think

Sometimes. Didn't work the other night when I was in a Coop and my Zero got peppered so bad that the gear wouldn't drop, hydraulic or manual.

Apparently if it jams rocking your wings might knock it loose. That didn't work for me either in the recent instance.
