In Flight Re-Fuelling

Recommended Posts

My inflight refuelling skills in DCS are rubbish, but in MSFS refuelling the C172 in flight is a piece of cake.  I thought I would try and adjust the fuel using the 'weight' icon to see what happens and to my surprise the fuel gauge increased - how naff is that, takes all the panic away from a low fuel situation.

Well it's pretty easy in FSX:SE too, accessing the fuel & payload menu :biggrin:

Given the power of the new sim, I'm surprised you didn't have to do this to refuel your Cessna in flight.. :laugh:

Yup, pretty neat. Just click on the menu icon, pull the sliders to the right, and you've magically accomplished "in air refuelling" for your Cessna.

Those cheeky buggers even added wake turbulence in DCS, as if it wasn't hard enough lining up behind a tanker.
