Hey all,

well I've been playing the sim for I think about a year now, including my time with FB 1.22. But I haven't really concentrated on any single plane to learn and I think this has slowed me down quite a bit. I can land pretty much any plane and so on but I haven't taken the time to learn how to best take care of their engines and wether or not a particular plane is best for turnfighting or BnZ.

Anyway I'd like to change this. I chose the Corsair because I think it's a grand plane and I love Carrier Ops.

So if anyone here is real good with the Corsair and would like to share some tips on cruise settings, how best to fight in it against the different Japanese fighters, what version would be the best to start at etc I would really appreciate it. Maybe someone could even have a session or 2 with me on HL to show me the ropes http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Also if someone can think of a better plane for me to learn first that's also welcome... But I think it should be a plane that is fairly common on the HL servers, but not a spit or a 109, don't ask me why, I just don't really like them that much http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Anyway many thanks in advance for any help I get!

Love the Corsair and I fly it quite a bit. But I can't give much advice about it. I'm still stuck on the supercharger stage settings and what the ideal altitudes to change them are. Aside from that...I fly the Corsair like I fly the Tempest (actually I flew the Corsair alot then the Tempest). BNZ machine...smooth controlled inputs. Attack from above....all that sort of thing.

i use 2600m and 5500m to shift.

cruising, well, i have the cowling flaps open.
and fly with 80% power and 90% pitch.
if you get overheat in combat, dont panic. its around 10 minutes till the engine gets damaged in overheat condition - quite long in a fight http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

in cruise btw, i have the cockpit open and the seat up, so i can watch behind me............

about what version , well - they all have the same performance http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
the Mk.IV/-1D climbs just a little bit faster because its max fuelload is only 75% of the other ones - set the others at 75% , and they climb the same.
the main difference is the -1C , with its 4x20mm canons (lots of ammao !) instead of the 6x12,7mm guns.

I mainly fly Tempests as well but I do usually take the Corsair up on Pacific maps. Can't give you tips on air to air though as I use it as a quick anti-ship raider/ground pounder. When there's enemy planes in the area, I dive for the deck and run for home.

I have been playing this game off-line for a couple years now and started flying 109s and 190s in the ETO part, but since I got PF I started flying the corsairs from carriers. I've Been flying the 1C mostly now for about a year. I like the D because of the tiny-tim missles it carries, but I have become attached to the 1C most often. That is the plane of choice for me. I started flying realistic a while back, but latley I have sort of cheated by allowing external views that I try not to use. I nead to get some kind of trackIR. But I am stuck to carrier ops with the F4U1C. I can go in-land and destroy ground targets, sink a ship with a 2000 pounder, or take on four enemy ace fighters and get back to the ship alive. It wasnt easy at first, but I have become very comfortable with it. I would choose the 1C, the big guns(20MM) are what I like about it. Sorry I can't fly online with you, I am not set up for that right now.

I'm off to sleep now but tomorrow I'll start brushing up on my carrier ops... and I'm gonna try to cruise at the top speeds the sim's specs chart has for the Corsair... I think it was 670km/h at 6000m, gonna souble check that.

any idea what sort of power and prop pitch settings I should try for that?

I guess on ETO servers I'll fly a BnZ plane as well to keep things consistent while I learn. I noticed the rear visibility from the Corsair isn't good either, so I'll have to team up with someone so I won't get jumped. I'm thinking Tempest or Jug for servers like WarClouds.

I'm not sure what you mean by dogfight map, but I use the mission builder, and for example right now; I launch from a carrier and hit a convoy inland with maybe a couple of tanks added, and then I'll have a flight of enemy fighters flying to that location to see me while I am on my ground attack, and if I live through them, I go back to the carrier.

Thanks for the shift altitudes. I'll try those. I think I'm shifting too high for both of the stages (3000 and 7000).

I would like to note a couple of things:

1) The cowl/radiator flaps for cooling have no effect on cooling in any R-2800 engined aircraft at present. I'm not sure when this happened but its been tested on these forums. Only causes drag and apparently does not reduce heat. So I don't use them. Prop pitch to keep RPMs low when necessary and throttle low when not needed.

2) The full loadout of the Corsair is 4000lb which is more than some bombers. You can't take off a carrier in real life or in the game with a full load. Some other loads are also restricted to ground based takeoffs as well. While the static carriers are restrictive, they aren't totally prohibitive.

Get comfortable with your rudder and elevator trim. Being quick with the trim makes flying the Corsair a lot easier. If you are maneuvering and don't have a lot of speed, a little nose-up trim will keep the plane from wallowing so much. Trim nose-heavy in the dive and the nose won't pogo when you're trying to get a shot.

"Prop pitch" is really RPM control on most of the planes, so I leave it at 100% unless cruising or trying to save gas (I don't even really know if it actually saves gas).

Overheat is pretty much a non-issue on the Corsair and Hellcat, 'cause like the others said, you have ten minutes before the engine goes belly up. Last time I checked, I could climb from SL to 26,000ft on full WEP and overheat before the engine died.

I switch to low blower at around 5800-6000ft and high blower at 18,000ft.

Good power,pretty good handling and a great loadout.

It did"nt do any one thing great but it did everything well.
Downside to the Corsair is if pushed to hard it WILL swap ends with you.But recovery from stalls and spins is pretty straight forward.

The Corsair is a difficult bird to fly online, always buddy up, otherwise you'll be on the defensive a whole lot, which isn't fun. As to the max speed issue at high altitude, remember that your airspeed is indicated, not true, so you have to convert numbers using that chart that can be found at airwarfare.com or such. Never try to turn fight a Jap fighter, EVER. And always climb, climb, climb, whenever you're not engaged in a fight.

well diablo was right there is a stage 3 setting for the supercharger... however it didn't do me much good... I just couldn't get past 480km/h even in a shallow dive... the only way I managed to get to 670km/h was by diving at about 25 degrees angle and even then I only reached that speed at around 1 500 ft starting from around 20 000...

Reduce your rudder and elevator deflection and make a smoother curve, it will sort out your wobbles, well, it sorted mine out on the Corsair. Its still a bit jumpy if the elevator trim isn't constantly adjusted.

I've noticed it being a little loose myself... but I can handle it, and as for stalling it, I wasn't planning on making any quick real tight turns anyway, I have yet to stall a Corsair in this game.

also I haven't noticed the P-51 wobbling much... but then again I'm not totally sure I know what you guys mean with "wobbling".

mrsiCkstar
09-15-2006, 05:40 AM
One thing though, when I move my stick slightly to the left, the plane will react as if I moved the stick the same amount to the right, banking right. When I move the stick further to the left it banks left. It doesn't do this when I move the stick to the right though.

Might just be my stick... it's a little annoying cause I can't make a small smooth correction to the left, it has to be a quick drastic one. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

dont have money to spend at this moment..just bought a new rig. Still confortable with my Afterburner2. But really, for me some planes are really too much sensitive and stall really quickly.Corsair is one: but i have also to tell that i dont use it frequently, so im not really "confortable" with it and still have to learn how to use it. I just know that its not a pure dogfighter plane..in the sense that lonf turning combat arent for this plane. Lots of power , but way to "hard" to fly for me at the moment ^^

44 inches of manifold pressure.
"Boost" is a British term for it. When you open the throttle, manifold pressure increases. Closing the throttle decreases manifold pressure.
It's a method of judging engine power.

44 inches is equal to about 78% throttle at sea level in the game.

The manifold pressure guage is in the cockpit, on the front panel, left side, just above the 'gun arm' controls. It has 'manifold pressure' written on it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It's good to use it because in American planes the reading changes as one climbs or loses altitude, and the desired setting needs to be maintained by opening or closing the throttle.

Hope this helps.

I love flying the corsair! Gunnery is easier for me on the C because the cannons don't really cause as much wobble as the .50 cals do. The cannon tracers are also easier to view.
Once I have trim under control, it's really fun to fly. If you use flaps while turning, she'll feel much more stable. I don't even really dread getting into a bit of a turn battle with a zero anymore...as long as I still have enough energy to extend.
I started with the spitfire (like almost everyone else). I still like it, but after getting used to the corsair, the spitfire flies a little light for me. I also feel a bit more secure knowing that the armament tough enough that I don't mind taking a few shots here and there. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

You're welcome.
Here's a quote from the 2nd edition of the RAF "Pilot's Notes General", dated 1943 (This book covers general handling and procedures for RAF aircrew not usually included in the individual aeroplane "Pilot's Notes):

"Part II Note H
Special Features of American Engines
1. Boost Control
American engines have (with some recent exceptions) been built without automatic boost control and the pilot must advance the throttle continually on the climb to maintain boost pressure up to full throttle height. Similarly, in diving below full throttle height he must watch the boost gauge and close the throttle as necessary to avoid over boosting. In changing (supercharger ratio) he may need to throttle back slightly to avoid over boosting."

That describes it nicely. I recon all of this happens in the game. I'm not sure what (if any) damage occurs if the engine over boosts occasionally, but in the interests of immersion and saving my all for combat, I tend to try to not stress the engine un-necessarily. The Pressure certainly drops off as you climb.
'Full throttle height' in this case is a band of altitude where full throttle is acceptable (in lieu of the desired boost which possibly cannot be maintained at this time) until the recommended height at which the supercharger should be shifted into a higher (or lower if descending) setting is reached.
The supercharger is also reffered to as the 'blower', or 'gear'.
I think this is fairly right.

Fun, isn't it?

although during landing and take offs the left wing always tends to tip.

I believe the stall tab on the right wing is modelled (although not visible) so the left wing will have slightly more lift (to fight torque) but with engine idling there is no torque so the stall tab wins....could be completely wrong thoughhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

If you don't know how to fly it; just keep flying the damn thing until you can, and then, keep flying it, and flying it. Eventually you will be wearing it instead of flying it. Sorry I'm a little beered-up right now, I went fishing and did real good. Time to go kill some bad guy AIs.

ICE--2) The full loadout of the Corsair is 4000lb which is more than some bombers. You can't take off a carrier in real life or in the game with a full load. Some other loads are also restricted to ground based takeoffs as well. While the static carriers are restrictive, they aren't totally prohibitive.
__________________________________________________ ______________________________________________



Both the Corsair & Hellcat are undermodeled in take off power vs fuel load/bomb load weight whether it be a static carrier or a moving carrier steaming into the wind. The Ki84 should not own the Corsair the way it does in terms of sea level V-max speed (Corsair--at least 10mph too slow) and in general dogfighting. I have sent this in for over a year and it has not been fixed. Very fustrating to have an aircraft that was known to be very fast & powerful not meet it's speed, energy, bomb load/take off ratings.
http://us.geocities.com/slakergmb/23d60700.jpg
V-max Speeds vs Altitude


Notice wing loading- 38.8lbs, stall speed power off --87.5mph, combat configurations were always with pylons & fuse unless in the "Clean Configuration". Notice take off vs combat load under calm wind (same as static carrier). The take distance in () is with "emergency take off power" of 2800rpms and is a much shorter take off distance.

Just so I am clear (for my own peace of mind), is this the .50 cal wobble/yaw problem that has afflicted the "Cats and Corsair since 4.05 and is Maddox planning to fix all the USN fighters, or is this a different issue you are referring to?

Nope thats the issue. Wobble during firing is supposed to be reduced in a future iteration. Whenever that comes.

Has anyone actually been able to get the corsair up to 30,000+ ft?

I've never been able to get close.

This is as high as I got before I gave up.

Do you have complex engine management turned on? And if so, are you remembering to switch to high blower ("stage 3") at ~18,000 ft.?

Nice picture Target. I haven't bothered taking much of anything that high. Just the Ta-152H and P-47 a few times.

Let's just say that ROC is extremely poor at this altitude. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
