Default Beginners questions

Hello,
I've been playing IL2 for many a year and have decided to take the plunge with COD. I'm only on the training flights at the moment and have come across a problem when starting my engine. I hit "I" the engine cranks over and then dies. What am I doing wrong?

Also, is it possible to "look" using the mouse as it is in IL2?

I'm sure I'll have plenty more questions for you soon enough.
Thanks in anticipation.

Hi

For looking around with the mouse, hit f10.

In the training, you are flying the tiger moth, right? Generally, follow this procedure:

1. Open Fuel so fuel can run into the engine
2. set mixture to rich
3. set proppitch to minimum (not to cruise)
4. open coolants
5. set throttle to 5-10%
6. hit i

This is generally for all planes. in the tigermoth, you only have to care about 2 and 5 i think...

for the hurricane:

Skip flight trainings with Tiger Moth - is the most difficult plane to take of in the game.
And in the end dont teach nothing...

I suggest start with Hurricane, easy and useful.

How do you get your mouse too operate like this, is there a key that you press too make the game work like this?
