Sorry, can't search for this but went back four pages looking for an answer. The German X4 missle (i think anyway) was radio controlled. I have tried everything I can think of to figure out how to guide it. I try shift f1, f2 etc. Is there a way to guide it? If so what are the key strokes? Thanks much for any information anyone has found. BD

It is explained in the readme file. Use the arrow keys. Mine are just beneath the Page Up, Page Down keys.

Oops, forgot to mention that the readme is incorrect (if I recall what it said correctly); if you launch more than one at a time, the FIRST missile launched is the only one controllable with the arrow keys. I believe the readme says it is the LAST once launched. Once the missile explodes you can launch and control another missile.

Thanks Zeus. I never read the "read me" as it seems it is always just a bunch of junk. Guess I should start. THanks again. Lots of good stuff in this read me. You also need to assign the keys. I did as you suggested and used the arrow keys. Increase sight attitude, etc. Thanks again.

You are correct wire guided: http://www.astronautix.com/lvs/x4.htm

I must have been thinking of another missile. I do seem to recall seeing something on the History Channel where someone was at a radio control guiding a missile from a HE111.
