Loss of Power and ability to climb after 5500 meters. I tried Switching Stages on the Supercharger, Altering prop pitch etc. whats the story?

Thanks for any help

Hi, i dunno if iam right or not, have you tried to adjust the fuel mixture... 120%- for low altitude and lesser for high altitude.. 40% or less?

iam still learning how to bomb target with this aircraft.. but it getting worse each time.. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Didn't we lose the ability to adjust mixture on the He111 after one of the patches? As a result, she doesnt' fly too well at higher altitude now. It was either that or the supercharger. Same effect eitehr way.

Don't know if they ever changed it back http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Hi
Set mixture to 80% around 5500 with stage 2 supercharger and the engines recover power lowering the mixture the higher you go will help with engine output.
Check the He111 H2 preflight at our website for bombing help.

Yes, the fuel mixture is there, and it is the reason the engines loose power. You should see a long trail of thin dark smoke (fuel) coming from the exhaust... Just lower it to 80-60% and it will run OK.

Also, the He-111 didn't climb much fater 5000 when fully laden...

AH right. Cant see the Exhausts to be honest. ALways play from inside the bomber.

What Prop Pitch should I be at? Roughly

Trust me, lower the mixture, and when the engines sound normal again, that's what mixture you should be at. I can't explain it any other way.
