1st mission, off the Lexington, "G" is bound correctly (works in a quick F6F ands others in quick missions).  Tried "G" (bound to Gear Up\Down, "SHFT-G" bound to Manual Gear Up\Down, and even "CTRL-B" (bound to Speedbrake as someone on the Discord suggested it. Trying to raise as soon as I clear the carrier, nothing works, what may I be doing wrong? Flaps/Chocks/Canopy, all else seems fine..

You have to press the manual gear raise key multiple times.
IIRC on the Wildcat its about 20 times in total.

Why strange?
It's called manually operated gear for a reason.

"Strange" wasn't the best choice of words.. "Unique" would have been better, as I have been playing these games since they 1st existed on DOS and I have never had to hit a key 25 times to get an action. Maybe just holding the manual up\down key down would make more sense (to me), but hitting it 25 times up\25 times down not so much. Just my $.02. I'm just glad it works so now I can fly the mission, thank you!

the 25 times is to simulate the painful job of manual cranking (the IL-16 is the same) otherwise what would be the difference with the hydraulic gear?

There is a mod to treat the gear on the F4F and the I-16 like all other gear in the game. (I don't know if any other planes more recently added have such 'manual' gear.)

If you have the capacity for the extra functionality on a HOTAS setup, you could write a script to generate a series of key presses. I did this years ago for my CH Products kit. But some years later I adopted the aforementioned mod, in part to free up the controller buttons for other stuff.

Well, you learn something every day - I never knew such a mod existed! Couldn't ad dit to my game fast enough - always found the multi key press a pointless PITA...

The Martlet/Wildcat in the the newest iteration of CLoD has a reasonable compromise - hold the G key down instead of banging the key repeatedly.
