Hey guys and gals, I am a noob, and was interested if anyone has any helpful hints on flying the ME262 without starting a fire in the engines.
Seems everytime I give it even a little throttle either one or both engines catch fire.
Any suggetsions?.Any help would be of great help to me.

If your very new to IL2, or FB, dont try using the Me262. It takes a bit of skill to get it in the air and land it. To some people it is hard to get both engines started. I'd say go with a Hurricane or something like it. However, if your really wanna try the 262, you have to bring both engines up very slowly. I mean slow. Move the throttle in tiny bits. When you get around 90% you can punch it. Most people reccomend taking off around 85% power, but i do OK at 100% if you back it down to 75% as soon as you get airborn

Just eeeease the throttle up slowly - the 262 doesn't base its decision of whether it should explode or not from the amount of throttle you give it, but instead from how fast you work your throttle /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

So don't use the preset throttle levels, use the "throttle up" buttons instead (having an analog throttle on your joystick helps a lot as well...). Throttling down can be done safely though...

I don't torch myself on the runway anymore... but sometimes I forget myself in the middle of a dogfight and slam my throttle stick up to max and WHOOSH! Instant Me-262 barbecue /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

move the throttle slowly till 50 %... then you can do what you want...

As long as you keep the rpm above 6000(68%), you can move the throttles as quickly as you want.

If you want a R*E*A*L easy plane, pick up an La7, BF109K4, or Yak3/9U

me-262 is not hard, you just gotta know how to run it.

Throttle to 0% before starting your engines. Give them time to become fully online. EASE!!! SLOWLY!! the throttle to `10-20% to taxi onto the runway. Unlike some plane, the Me-262 cannot handle offroad takeoffs . .. they are death. Once in position, drop flaps to takeoff . . and EASE the throttle SLOWLY to 100%. go airborn at 160-190km/h . . . retract gear and flaps . . . and EASE the throttle back to 80% or 79% . . . . so your engines don't overheat.

In order to use it effectively in combat, climb to about 1.5 or 2 km above the furball (or enemy planes) so you can dive in on them, unload your 4 30mm's, and zoom back out . . climb back to alt before repeating. Never raise throttle during this exercise for 2 reasons: 1) overheating 2)it doesn't help your chances of survival with 2 black trails pointing at you. never engage in a turning battle.

#1 rule for not flaming your motors: move the throttle SLOWLY!! those Juno 004's are leary of sudden movements.


If you are easy on the throttle, the engines won't flame out on you. it really is purty easy to fly if you obey that rule. always start the engines on 0% throttle, also, and wait for them to be fully started before touching the magic 'zoom stick.'

Yeah, reducing below 60% to fast is bad too, if you are wanna slow down and are tempted jerk throttle to Zero, don't. Like they said, above 60% (some say 50%) you can wank the throttle to your pleasure.

Also, in case no one else mentions it, if you keep your speed at or above 600kts, you can keep it wide open for a lot longer until it overheats. I don't know how long, but I have yet to flameout at 600+

You can set trottle to whatever value you like just BEFORE starting the engines. I for myself set them to some 30% for taxiing speed and while staring the engines hold the breakes. You actually may set trottle to even 100% before engines started but you will need a straight runway in front of you.
When the engines have run up yor may SLOWLY add more power. For taxiing its best setting one engine to about 30% end the other one to 50-60% (depends on the direction you like to turn).

GAH! Yes, the Jumo engines need a light touch, but only
at less than 45%!!

At 45% and above, you can hammer it as much as you like.

I wanna thank you all very much for the advice to a noob,.........I must say that with all the online games I have played, this online community is the most helpful towards noobs, and all in general.
I have only been playing FB online a few days and every time I do, after confessing that I am new, everyone gives a helping hand, and I havent yet had any name calling like I have seen in other games.
Again, thanx to all and maybe one day I will be able to help noobs myself, not to mention have the ability to shoot some of you down,................lol

262 is a very easy plane to master. Easy on the throttle at all times. Taxiing is the hardest part of flying this plane, I think the nose wheel is bugged in the game. I use differential engine thrust to get on the runway fast, then throttle them down, and slowly ease up to 90% or so and you are up.

gunnery in the 262 is quite fun and a real challenge, much more so than flying th plane. The 262 rarely stalls, can hammerhead, yo-yo, it is the best flying plane in the game. Don't let early engine flames stop you from flying it, it is too much fun to fly.

Hey I was wondering does the He-162 with it's BMW 003 engine have the same problem (up in flames) as the JUMO 004 engines?
