Why does my me262 always catch fire. Seconds after starting up and speeding the runway,one engine starts burning. Haven't actualy had a lift off in the 262 yet.
So what am I doing wrong...?

The engines are really sensitive to throttle input. Move the throttle excessively slowly and it won't flame out on you.

Be gentle with the throttles and move them forward slowly.

If you are using a stick like the x45, put the throttles fully open before starting and it will start and accelerate without doing it.....http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

ANY time you move the throttles on the 262 do so very slowly. As in real life the 262 engines were easy to catch on fire.

You will almost certainly get the engine overheat warning on takeoff, ignore it. Once in the air back the throttles off to 70-80% until they cool down. Climb slowly and build speed slowly; the 262 does not like to accelerate. The 262 is very fast once you get up to speed, but do not turn or climb aggressively or you will burn off speed.

Give yourself a very long landing approach (10km is a good place to start). The 262 does not lose speed quickly in a shallow dive. Be extra careful with the throttles on landing as you can't cut throttles quickly or apply power quickly if you start to stall.

Takeoffs are a piece of cake comaperd to landings!!!

All the jets have less thrust at lower speeds. They have relative to props high acceleration
at high speeds, which means much more than low and able to sustain harder turns at speed.

When flying closed pit, watch the RPM gauges. Once you hit 6000 RPM, you can slam the throttle forward like any other plane.

The key is 6000 RPM, just like it was in real life...

I had an issue with this a while back and it turned out to be my Logitech Wingman - just touching the throttle would cause a spike which would send the engines into flames. I switched to a Saitek and have never looked back http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
