    u have to go to the controls and set the "lower gear manually" and the "retract gear manually" and u have to keep pressing that button until the wheels wont move.... personally i use ctrl + g and shift + g.... but u might find something better

    I use Insert and Delete for that. Easier to control the plane at the same time when only pressing one key.

    no need, on a landing approach i don't need that much control and i can still shoot stuff down with the gear lowered, although it is more convenient CC's way

    yeah you always have to define buttons in the controls to work it properly

    I haven't been requested to do it so far.Because,I have never used I-16 in the game.

    One of the clever features in Il-2 is its reproduction of cockpit operations that weren't automated and had to be done by hand - the I-16's hand-wound undercarriage is a great example.

    I'm still waiting for someone to code the Hurricane's emergency hydraulic pump though.

    ;)
