I release the Mistel and it usually keeps flyin past the target. If I dive bomb I blow up on the release.

Tips appreciated.

I think the trick is to keep the target steady in the sight for at least 5 sec before release.

I do maybe 30 degree dive at the target at idle power, trim out any slipping, and the Mistel goes pretty straight when I drop it.

The board is not quite right today methinks.

Here's what I think you want to know:

Upon lining up the target and getting close enough (quite close, but only close enough to drop AND escape http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif), drop your engine speed to zero, release Mistel, run like hell the other way. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

You see this cuts the Mistels engines so it will now glide where you have aimed it. After releasing the Mistel, throttle up and proceed to safety with great dispatch. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Now, practice. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I haven't tried it yet, but I heard one person post that you need to engage the autopilot just before decoupling, and the Mistel would go in a straight line. If your attack angle is too shallow, it will belly land without going off.

If you land it in the water by the shore, it seems that it will sink to the bottom after a few seconds and then a geyser/boom.

Also note that your 190 is heavily trimmed up when you detach and you should hit the neutral trim key to get it back right. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Like I just said:

" You must launch the Mistel at least from 1 km away from the target; historically they were launched from even farther away. Just lower your engine power to about 33% of throttle, hold your target in the crosshairs for a few seconds and press the Attach/Detach Aircraft button to separate from the Ju-88. It will follow on your current course, while you should try to get away from the target area. The Mistel's blast is pretty big, and it will damage or destroy objects on the ground and in the air in a very large radius."

Uh, aim, cut throttle, haul a$$. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

What I do is I kill my engine completely When I am doing a dive on it. And when I am really close I let it go and power up and immediately break right or left. Works for me.
