I can get it across the office no problem but that window is overmodelled.

I gave up at about 60 m. The optimal strategy appears to be to launch the aircraft pointing downwards in order to impart the maximum velocity whilst keeping the phugoid within the constraints (ceiling, floor, window).

LOL. Yup. I got it out the window the second time, for a 63m run, after that, I can't get it past the window.

took about 15 mins to break 100.

It seems to me that the best distances are after three loops. I have done 4 but don't get as far. I spent ages trying to get it to 'dolphin' up the thermal from the chimney but it did not help. Starigt flights with no loops or stalls don't seem to go so far either.

Alright since I think I've mastered it down to where its just a matter of luck and I wanna eat and see the sun, I'm gonna tell you guys how to do it

In return I want to see the number one record stay on IL2 forums! (cos everybody knows we're the most skilled flight simming community out there)

Click once on the paper plane as soon as the game loads (do not hold down the click or you won't be able to see the mouse cursor) then more or less follow this path (I've circled more or less the sweet spots for launching, feel free the experiment):

Frustrating.

I get realiably to 110-112m, sometimes into 114.
104.505m so far.

But can't get beyong this.

Throw as described above, prefecting it that the plane leaves window just underneath upper edge.
Don't throw too hard (go around too fast), in fact there's plenty of time to 'aim'.

One nice round flight with no loops.
If you throw too strong plane does loops which is ok, can go quite far, but if it does not loop it will stall and then float down slow in a steep angle, only 30-60m then.
