When flying the missions with the ME-262 as soon as I start the engines one or the other goes on fire. Why? What am I doing wrong? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

Too quick push [up] of da throttle caused fire in Me262 engines.

Too quick push down of da throttle will result in engines shutdown.

You have ease the throttles up in small increments. Going too fast results in bad things, as you know.

You are increasing the thottle too quickly.

If you use a throttle, make sure they are at idle before starting the engines.

When throttling up, increase the throttle slowly. About 5-10% per second is a good rule. The same applies when you throttle down, to avoid a flameout.

In addition to the fine help above, here are a few more tips to 262 operating...

Once your engines spool up to 6000 RPM, you dont have to be gentle on the throttle. Anything below 6000 RPM and you have to finess them.

Once you take off you will probably be overheated.. throttle down to 80-85% until you have cooled down. Once up to speed, 90% can be maintained almost forever without overheat.

If you are really fast you can spool up to 100% throttle. The plane will not overheat as long as you stay fast.

After playing around with the 262 you will wonder what Hitler was thinking, not allowing the plane to be developed as a fighter early on.. Then you will begin to be grateful that he didnt!

Don't worry too much about the overheat. It takes about 9 minutes for the engines to be damaged, and its very unlikely that they would stay overheated for 9 minutes straight (unless you had your flaps down or something).

Nice trick for a runway start in the 262 is . . Select all engines then set throttle at 100% then select each engine and start as usual. The engines will then spool up to 100% without blowing up. There will be some yaw as your second engine catches up (so be as quick as pos starting the second engine), but a bit of rudder and sometimes a little break will sort that out. Ideal for those scramble missions ;-)
