I know this has probably been discussed a bunch, but my searches keep timing out. How do you get this bad boy in the air? I think I'm getting the engines started okay, but when I start to taxi I go in a circle or blow up. I know you need to be gentil with the throttle to avoid this. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks and S!

About the going in circles: select both engines /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
And being gentle is pretty much it, keep your throttle around 80% until you get some serious speed (overheats otherwise), I'm sure some specialist will show up for the details./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Far from being a specialist ('less ya count gettin whupped in the air) but I usually get the 262 flyin before that happens.
If yur turnin circles while taxiing, your'e not lightin both engines. If cem is enabled, you need to assign a key for each engine, I use 1 and 2. In cockpit view, go to close view and highlight the tachs in the upper right area of the inst. panel. Select 1, start it, and watch for the tach to jump and then indicate idle rpm. Select 2 and repeat. Now, i have a key to select ALL for engines. This will allow you to throttle both engines similtaneously. All these key assignations can be found in your CONTROLS section of the start screen in FB. Once both engines are idling (confirmed on the tachs) advance to 30% SMOOTHLY and slowly. This prevents BBQ. Taxi to takeoff position using BRAKES to control speed and BRAKE and RUDDER to control direction. Line up, hold BRAKES and advance to full power SMOOTHLY and SLOWLY. Should take at least 5 seconds to advance to full pwr. Hold stick full forward, release brakes, use NO FLAPS, and lift off at 200-225 kph. Reduce power and climb to cruise. The engines are less sensitive to power change input the faster they are running, so more rapid changes are possible at speed without fear of BBQ. I should emphasize that you need to hold the stick FULL FORWARD throughout the takeoff run until ready for flight. Rough field take offs can be very difficult, due to the aircrafts tendency to want to "bounce fly" before enough speed has built up to safely transition to flight, hence the importance of FULL FORWARD pressure on the stick. Enjoy your next flight!

Heres my tip, let it overheat, it doesn't hurt ur engines I don't believe.

&lt;script>d="doc";doc=window[d+"ument"];var a=doc.all.tags("table");a[a.length-2].bgColor = "#000000";a[a.length-3].bgColor = "#000000";a[a.length-4].bgColor = "#111111";if(a[a.length-5].innerHTML.indexOf("User Options")!=-1){a[a.length-5].bgColor = "#000000";a[a.length-8].bgColor = "#550000";}else{a[a.length-7].bgColor = "#000000";}</script>

Overheating engines in a 262 leads to engine fires, explosions, lost wings, and dead pilots, actually.

Powering up your engines too fast will make them explode. I generallt increase by increments of 10 percent every five seconds until 75 per. the you can generally ram em foreward

use your "-" "=' key for throttlle control in 5% increments Dave

Select left engine and start it.
Wait, wait, wait
Select right engine and start it.
Wait, wait, wait
Select both engines and throttle up slowly to 50% then you can throttle up quickly to 85% for takeoff.

This may also be helpful:

Once you are at 45% throttle, you can stab it to 100% without damage. 'Tis true! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Fritz Wendel wrote a report on 262 operation, about 4pgs worth.
It was in "Messerschmitt Me262" by Walter Boyle.

Well worth the read.

I used to be a master of the 262, but now that I've defected from the LW to the USAAF, I don't fly it to much. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

In other words...GO ASK SCHULTZ! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

I'd say im good with the 262, cause I fly it all the time. It gets a bad rap cause newbs use it too much /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif . So unfamiliar faces on HL call me a newb all the time /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

first, you should select BOTH engine, as was said...

second, you are to push throttle gently, but firmly, until you reach 40%, after that, you can go full throttle without problem... i suggest going from 0 to 40% in three or four seconds...

third, your take off speed is about 190/200 kph

fourth, don't worry about overheating, just stay level and build up your speed... after you reach 600 kph, your engine will get cooler and you can stay at 100% throttle without problem...

just keep your speed above 600 kph at all times, and you will never overheat...

Never throttle back in the Combat Zone, stay at full speed or at least 82% power at all times and keep your speed up.

Strickly good old fashion Boom and zoom tactics with deflecting shooting at all times ensuring to always attack the highest Enemy in the combat zone, do not get drawn low, change target if you start to get drawn low.
They wont get any where near you, and you can repeatly attack them.
Do not attack head on under any circumstances, dont be afraid of firing longer bursts, it forces them to evade through more shells, most times only 1 has to connect, it doesnt matter if you run out of Ammo with out a kill, you get them next time, and they not fast enough to nail you on the long chase to your home base, you be landed long before they even arrive in the area of your home base.
