I have Il2 forgotten battles. The I-16 in this game has problems that don't seem to affect the other planes. The landing gear does not work ( also a problem with my wildcat in Pacific Fighters)and the engine fails on about half the missions, it's not an overheat problem, there is no warning or message. Any ideas?

The I-16 had manual gear retraction, as did the Wildcat. You must assign keyboard keys and/or joystick buttons to Raise Gear Manually and Lower Gear Manually in the Control menu ingame.

Bear in mind that each keystroke of these assigned keys will translate into one turn of the handcrank that 'raises' your virtual landing gear, so you will have to press those keys many times (like 39 or so) to raise or lower your gear.

The engine cutout is due to the I-16's engine having a gravity fed carburetor; sudden dips or swerves would throw the fuel in the carb away from where it needed to go to run the engine, so I recommend that you avoid just pushing the stick forward to go down and forgo inverted flight as much as possible.

You'll find similar issues with some other aircraft in the sim, like the Hurricane Mk I and I believe, the I-153 Chaika biplane.

Welcome to the community. If you have questions or problems, feel free to ask. Someone around here will always take advantage of the opportunity to show off his vast knowledge or simply pay back the kindness someone else showed him before he got things figured out.

Thanks guys, I didn't know about the search section it's my first time here. I did asign a key for manuel retract but I didn't know you had to. I'm used to CFS2 they spoil you. I really like this sim but the engine stops are really aggrivating. Is there no way to restart the engine? Some times it dies in straight and level flight in cruise.

Sometimes choppy air will produce an engine cutout. If you have enough altitude, keep your speed up with a slight dive. Reduce throttle to about 10 - 20% and hit "i" (default). Listen to the engine and watch your manifold pressure. It may take several tries, but once your engine starts, throttle up and wipe your virtual brow: You won't be a oddly dressed pedestrian today.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Great help guys everything's under control now. Prop auto pitch helped too. I have to say now that I'm past part of the learning curve this is the best sim I've used so far. Great support community too. Thanks.

It shouldn't stop unless you negative-G it, so try to avoid that.

Keep in mind that when you want to restart, you must be going fast enough that the propellor is turning; about 300km/h. The plane does not have an inertia starter.
