Hey Robban,

Your climb rates test are interesting to read. Have you kept a comprehensive list of all the tests you made? It would be great to have one person use the same method to test climb on a wide range of a/c. It's really hard to compare tests by different people as their methods can really vary. I know this is a lot of work but, it doesn't hurt to ask right? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks,

faust

Hi Faustnik! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I've done alot of climbtests and they are actually quite easy to do.
After every patch climbtimes have changed, and so I've had to do them all over again. some of them I have lost unfortunatelly, although they're not usable anymore.

Here's what you do. Pick an online map, such as the Finnish island map number 11.
I like it cause it gives one the option to start at an island that is at the same level as the ocean, and flying over the ocean gives good excact altitude readings.
Anyways, I use full fuel, and full power with boost, radiators open or closed, it's optional, remember that the cowlflaps cause drag and may reduce the rate of climb.

I usually climb at at 260-280km/h TAS. The heavier aircraft the higher the climbspeed.

Take off, remain as low as can, retract the undercarriage as soon possible.
When you reach 280km/h pull up and maintain that speed. When you pull up is also when you start the timer.

Remember to record the track and do the timing during the replay.

German planes are easy to test as everything is automated. In the russian planes you need to shift supercharger gear manually. In the La-7 I change at 2700-3000m. The La-5 is somewhat different, so beware.

Hope this can be of any use!

Happy climbing! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
