http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif I have just installed the add-on, ACE EXPANSION PACK in FB, and when I am flying the YP-80 jet fighter, whenever I adjust the throttle, either increase speed, or decrease speed, the jet engine would stall and I cannot restart the engine and I would have to force land. Does this happen to anyone else out there? I would like to know if there is a way to fly this plane or if there is a patch released for this problem, Thanks. Skwalljrunn.

They say the prototype you had to be very gentle moving throttle. I have no problems but then I only move throttle maybe 5-10 percent at a time and wait a bit. Same with Me~262 but above ~50% "power" you can jam that one all you want as long as you keep it above about 50%.

Read the pilots manual and you will see that this effected all early P-80's.

Be very careful with the throttle...if you've flown the Me 262 then you must take the same approach. The benefit of the YP-80 is that your engines don't light on fire....the bad thing is that you're engine chokes and you need to restart it.

Just be careful with the engine and you'll be fine.

Yea but it happened during takeoff, a stall I believe. It sucks that he died in the plane but then again maybe he was too cocky? I mean that other high scoring Pacific ace died in a dishonorable way IMO. The other guy(sorry I never remember 2nd place guys http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif ) Died because he left his fuel tanks attached during a manuevor. Im speaking out of ignorance of course but being cocky gets you killed and I think thats what happened to those two fine aces.

To cocky? your going to have to qualify that statement EmpyStare. And make it good, otherwise I don't believe it's your place to make statements about the death of real persons half a century ago.

Qualify that statement?
"Allowed back in the air on January 7, 1945, McGuire was out for blood. Leading a flight of 4, he spotted a lone "Zero" low over the jungle of Negros Island. He had always preached never to get low, slow and heavy with the P-38, but this time he didn't let go his drop tanks. He saw the "Zero" as an easy kill, and with it and one more he would tie Bong. He made the fatal decision to keep his tanks, make the bounce, and continue the hunt.

Unfortunately for McGuire, the pilot he attacked was NAP 1/c Soichi Sugita, at that time the top-scoring surviving IJN ace with 80-odd kills scored over Rabaul, a master at the controls of a "Zero". In the ensuing fight, Sugita managed to shoot down one of McGuire's wingmen, and severely damage the other two. He then went after McGuire. Low over the jungle, heavy with fuel, McGuire stalled out trying to get away from Sugita and crashed to his death, a pointed example of the dark side of the lust for fame and glory."

Hmmmm "I Can Kill him, WHO NEEDS TO DROP THE TANKS THAT SLOW ME DOWN ANYWAYS?"
Now Call me Crazy GEO but it looked like that ace got cocky And Got Killed from it. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif As for Bong's death I suppose you could call it mechicanical problems with the P80 Or whatever but the fact remains he died in a Stall on takeoff, engine trouble? Maybe.
Until we know the certain facts about that I'm free to speculate that Cockyness got them both killed, maybe Bong was thinking 'sure im going fast enough im used to those big twin engine P38s'.

The only people that are really qualified to tell us if they were cocky or not were them themselves And theyre dead. Im not trying to poke fun at your beloved Bong or the other aces that never got over 40 kills, I'm just saying that Cocky gets you killed and perhaps thats what happened to them. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The throttle in the P-80 does seem to require a much lighter touch than the 262 used to, and the He 162 behaves the same way. Accurate? Beats me; accurate for AEP, anyway. I'll adjust.
