    Can anyone help? I've seen plenty of webpages like this http://1000aircraftphotos.com/HistoryBriefs/HenschelHs123.htm that give some information but not nearly as detailed as I am looking for. Information about the manufacturer would be wonderful (as I have really yet to find any), and information about the plane itself is also greatly needed. Specifically, detailed information about the engine and how it works/is built, as well as detailed information about the flaps and how they are used. I need specifics about the landing gear as well.

    Ok, well, go for it! Have fun! And see if you can help me out. Thanks!

    check with schiffer publications for the book on the Hs 123, softbound. Englisch, redone from the Deutsch. A cheap way for you to cover your data in the files....

    Thanks for the help all! The technical drawings especially helped, as I've already seen most of those other websites. I really appreciate the help though!

    And definitely, if anyone comes up with more information to post here, please do so! It would be great!

    More specifically now, it'd be great to have information on how the landing gear works and on how the flaps on the wings and tail work. Also, information relating to cockpit controls would be great!
