Many other ww1 planes have this problem, but I dont know what causes it.

:/ It's about the worst case here though, it's the plane I seriously have the most problems with as an opponent.

maybe some aircraft modder can tell more.

hey you class modders out there, can someone help out here?

The FM of this plane is inside the buttons.
Could someone create a version that has it separately in a diffFM file? It would be possible to address the performance and the toughness much easier.

Has anybody succeeded to take off ???

 YES for the "with own slot version" placed in my 412.2m SAS 5.3.  ( Click on pic to zoom; see speed is 181Km/h ).

How to:
1- place throttle at Full. Do not start engine.
2- apply L  : level stabilizer. Do it first. ( stand alone, U will nose dive with it. )
3- then apply A : Auto pilot( stand alone, it will reach only 68Km/h. )
4- call the tower for permission = makes it quicker ; NA in WWI.
5- IMPORTANT to avoid nose crash: pull up on stick for a  35 to 45 degree take off.
6- let speed reach 175km/h++ ;  it can reach 200 km/h !!! ( you can do 48 on your own and dive ! )
7- Disengage Auto and Level ( press A then L in quick succession ) and you are airborne.

..did not work in DBW1916 ; no go with autopilot and no tower.
Had no speed gain in my early DOF, other then by removing A at some point...

The BE2C has a similar problem.

<Gunny>,I think David is referring to the Be2c's invulnerability  :D

I remember when the Be2c was first released, trying for HOURS to shoot one down  :-X
It can be done, BUT you need endless patience, very close combat flying and very accurate marksmanship  8)

TIP.....Kill the pilot  8)

Hilarious, considering the fragility of the original machine, and their fate at the hands of the Fokker E I's etc

Not for the easily bored  :D

Cheers

Alfie

PS I can't remember about the Lohner/ Macchi LI having takeoff issues......I'll give them a test when I get back from work tonight  :)

it's perfectly possible to take off without the use of stabilizer and autopilot.

You need to play with power on the take-off run and avoid that the plane "sticks" to the water or that you pull up too hard. Both kills your speed/acceleration and you can't take off.
Use some feeling to get it gliding, gaining speed well up to the liftoff speed. If it sticks, adjust the throttle and "unstick it" and then accelerate again.  You get a feeling for it.

Hi <Gunny>

I think we might be in danger of running two threads at once  o_O

See here for continued Be2c chat  :)

Yes, can confirm....the old girl's a little nose heavy, but with a bit of gentle persuasion she'll take off  :)

It takes off and lands fine. It's indestructibility is the problem. And one can only select the default skin in FMB.
