Sorry if this has been asked before, but can someone explain the trick for getting the Me-262 to fly at its advertised superior speed? Best I can do is 340kph. I must be doing something wrong, but can't figure it out.

Gear up?
Flaps up?

That's all I can think of. I was flying one the other night online was cruising around at 600 kph.

It's a slow accelerator, especially if you try to pitch up before it has reached a good cruising speed. This means even a shallow climb will not allow you to break past "340".

Get the speed up after takeoff by letting her go level for a bit. Then climb up.

Word. It's quite the fast mother facker if you catch my drift.

The Me262 does greatly at level altitude.You have to gain some like 5000m and them you go 80% throttle with 560kph sweepin the sky.You have lotsa fuel.Climb andgle max 30deg.

You are misreading the Airspeed indicator. The white, main pointer stops there; then watch the gold pointer. The white pointer won't move again until you slow to less then 340, whereupon the gold stops moving.

I will admit that I do not understand why it works like that, but that's the way it is.

It does go faster than that. Put up an Ace La-7 or P-51 and see if they can catch you.
They won't.

Unless you slow down. Just remember to be gentle with the throttle and think ahead.

It's a bug. White is IAS, tan/brown is TAS. But it's *never* worked in the 262, or the 229. Despite many attempts to get it corrected.

It does work properly in the He-162 however.

Above 6000rpm you can do whatever you want with the throttle, but below that you have to be real careful, or risk a flame out, or flame up.

Ah-ha. I thought it was something along those lines, but I could not say with certainty.

Thank you both.

MB_BOB, don't mean to get this off track, but it's good to see you back. How you been?

Been trolling the paint schemes forum mostly, and was asking the Me-262 question because I've finished a couple revised skins and want to shoot down a few B17s with them. Link to new skins: http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/45410763/m/5271014393

But, after making one high speed frontal pass and making the BIG turn into the 6 o'clock position, I find I've lost so much momentum that I can barely close with the buggers.

Thanks all for the tips... I clearly need more practice.

well i once had both engines on fire from some flak hits, as long as i kept flying fast it caused me no trouble and they were still giving the same power, generally u have to shoot them to bits.
