When I go online the 111 bombsight will not come on. I hit the stabilizer bar and fly for several minutes and no crosshairs. Offline they come on in about 30 seconds after I hit the stabilizer. I also make sure flight is level before hitting the stabilizer bar. Other members of my staffel are having the same problem.

odd, didn't take my reply first time...

My best guess is that it has to do with how much maneuvreing you do prior to looking through the scope. Dodging enemy interceptors will set it back quite a long time. I've suffered this problem as well and find that gentler turns using rudder and counter aileron to stay level work great for keeping the gyro (or whatever the heck it is) level so the crosshairs come on quicker.

Make sure that your altitude, speed and view angle are set right. That can be crucial.
