Hey I never really played with the 262 much until now, I previously only played it online and in QMB. Anyways I was wondering if I could get some tips for its operation, specifically on takeoff. I know the engines need to be advanced slowly up to 50 percent and taken down slowly below 50 percent. I was refering to steering the plane. It took me about four tries to get the plane off the ground and even then I couldnt keep the d@amn thing on the runway. Initially it veers hard to the right and the only way to get it back is to hit the brake. Of course when you hit the brakes you slow down this makes for an extremely long run. My question is if any one has any tips or tricks with operating this plane?

Allow both engines to spool fully up to idle before trying to advance the throttle, up to 10-15 seconds after the second engine start may be required.

Hold the brakes while advancing the throttle until the plane begins to "creep". You can get over 50% throttle before you even start rolling this way. As with the propellor aircraft, use rudder to steer while on the ground, but don't expect much response until you have a bit of speed up.

It's still more chanllenging than the prop jobs, but I don't have a lot of trouble using this technique.

Wait till both rev meters come up, then advance throttle slowly - all the time holding brakes - to 6000 to 7000 revs. Start pumping the brakes and taxii keeping speed below 70kmh, on takeoff slowly rev up to 8000

If your going to the right on the runway,use your airlerons aswell.


And seeing as this is a thread about the 262...i have a question about it...

Why at above 2-3000K high does the smoke become invisible,then the blue flame coming out of the engine vanish aswell...and does this affect the speed?

Click the website in my sig, it is our squad site and has some good 262 stuff. Hope it helps.

Accckk! Just noticed he may have taken our 262 guide down, I'll see if he can put it back up. There is a track there to download that is good for showing the proper takeoff and landing procedure.

I still have the 262 manual hosted on the webspace, just right click on this link and "Save Target As..." to download the pdf.

http://flygirl.dhs.org:8080/jg51/me262manual.pdf

It was last updated for v1.11, but I don't believe anything has changed since then to warrant any changes to the manual.

FYI, the critical RPM for the Jumo's throttle advancement is 6000. This is reached with 45% throttle at sea level. As altitude increases, you need a slightly higher throttle setting to reach 6000 rpm.
The blue flame appears at 81% throttle and higher. The exhaust trail appears at 96% throttle and higher, regardless of altitude.
