    I think it is because you have to control the plane at the same time. I don't think anything can be done to change it.

    Assign a key for "Level Stabilizer" in Controls.

    That's a big ugly bug in Il-2 I think. Oleg decided that the bombardier and the pilot should be one entity in the game. You can also control the bombsight when you are in the cockpit. Of course you can't see anything...

    It would be more historic to make the bombardier and the pilot into two seperate entities so, that when the player presses A, to engage the autopilot and press C (and leaves the cockpit) for the bombardiers station so that he can trust that the AI will do its very best to fly straight and level towards the target. Now, it is a pain to juggle in these two roles to get your precious bombs on the target.

    It is a problem, yes, when you are bombardier. But, when leaving for gunner, I usually still control the plane (joystick in my left hand), and shoot with MG. This way you can be much more effective gunner.
