I've been trying to get back into flying the 109 lately, and I was wondering did the warning horn, that comes on when you deploy your flaps at any speed greater than a slow crawl, actually exist as it does in the game? I assume it did, because the level of detail in this awesome game has brought all kinds of new info to my attention that I hadn't even been aware of before... but, is there any way to disable the warning horn thingy in the 109?

I think it was said that the warning horn was sounded when the pilot lowered flaps without having the gear deployed. I could be mistaken though.

Yes, you are right, when you lower your gear horn will shut up http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif. It is to remind pilot about gear during landing (i know few who forgot about weels anyway haha)

It was actually much quieter in real life (and the original IL2). You'd only really hear it if the engine was at a power setting you'd use for landing.

In the real world there is sometimes alot going on during final approach and there are many instances where pilots do forget to put down the gear, especially if they are flying an instrument approach, but often even in bright sunny days! I fly a Cessna 172RG and it has a gear horn that sounds when you reduce manifold pressure to a certain level with the gear up, it turns off when the gear go down (at least its supposed to http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif)

Sweet! I can think of at least three times that I've come in after a successful mission, deployed flaps, got engaged in some chat conversation or watching someone else, flared perfectly for the three point landing, touched down, and then somersaulted down the runway because I forgot to put down the gear. It's cool to know that Oleg and crew modelled that in to the sim for the 109.

Now I just need to go rip that system off a downed 109 and get my mechanic to put it in my Stang....

Since AEP came out I have a bug that the warning horn seems to stop working now and then. I am so used to it being there that if it stops working I find myself flying with combat flaps down and not knowing it. I wish they would make it quieter though as it's so loud and annoying and in real life you could only hear it when your engine was running at low rpm's. The problem is if they make it too quiet I am in trouble as I have become quite lazy and rely on it's noise as a reminder that I popped down the combat flaps in a fight. The other day I was flying a MiG 3 after a successful mission and landed with the landing gear up http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif I have never done that before, needless to say I dropped down expecting the gear to stop me and boom I blew up, I'm spoilt by the Bf 109 warning.

I was dogfighting in a P-51 against a 109. At one point we were REAL close. From inside MY airplane I could hear HIS warning horn. I laughed so hard that I died.

Speaking of such sounds, hopefully future 1C sounds will include that satisfying "Clunk" "Click" when the gear thud into position and the latches snap into place.
