Hallo,

Sometimes I have a big problem with the take off. I mean, when there is strong wind from the side I cant hold the plane along the runway. even with full rudder. The AI and Autopilot can take off without problems. How do you hold the line with the runway durig a "storm".

thanks

If full rudder won't keep you on the runway, there really isn't a whole lot you can do about it.

Try locking the tail-wheel and easing the throttle forward when you begin your run. I dunno if it'll work, but its worth a shot (if I were home i'd test it).

Try using Full Rudder and tapping your Brakes while your picking up speed. When you reach a certain speed it becomes easier to handle.

Whats the point in taking off in heavy crosswinds if you cannot maintain the line of the runway..??

Sounds risky to me..

If I was you, Id takeoff towards the wind direction, using a taxiway, apron, road or anything that is smooth enough as long as its safe...

Id bet its no problemo if you use the landning flaps?

Anyway.. what wind??
Never seen winds in IL2, except from turbulence in the "poor" weather condition.
Maybe they only appear when you set snow/rain as weather??

I could be wrong but..

confirm anyone?

the heavy crosswind doesnt occure very often. what happand was, that my plan was pushed by the wind to one side. I mean the nose of my plane was pushed to the left side (strong wind from the right I guess). It was impossible to turn the plan again the wind. so i had to take off along the direction of the wind which is difficult if there are some trees in that direction.

did you never had that problem? I was playing a offline campain.

Ahaaa offline you say...
Sorry, never tried that..
It wasnt good enough i guess..

Lack of good GUI and story/reson to play it IMO.

But now Ive found a reason..
To test the wind you talk about..

There was a coop mission I played online with a few pple that had IL2's and La5fn take off with such a crosswind. We had to retry it several times because of crashes on take off. lol. Try using your brakes and your rudder to keep you going straight down the runway. I have done it before and it works really good, but it will take practice. Wait till you get enough speed up to use your flaps, or don't use them at all.
