I cannot use a drag chute with these planes.

Is there supposed to be one?

Do F-14s have drag chutes in historical ?

funny mental image;)

by the way, by now I found it the most pleasurable experience to set "Realistic Landings" to OFF when operating from a carrier. Otherwise the whole gear damage thing is too much of a hassle for me

This difficulty setting basically makes your gear indestructible is all...

F-14 + catapult launch problem will be tried by Engine mod catapult rework.

Perhaps no need to edit on F-14.

HI

I have had no problems with catapult launches from the Nimitz or the French Carriers.Realistic settings.
1) Extend wings
2)full flaps down
3) Slight trim up
3)Full afterburner 110%
4) Activate catapult and pulling back on stick( Failure to get nose up quickly results in nose gear damage)

Load: 100% fuel 2  tanks, 4 x AIM 9L ,4 x AIM7M

Carriers at 32 kph no wind.

Tested with AI no problems. Adjust catapult power in STD folder.

Hope this helps.

Mick.

I have installed everything correctly, but I am getting 30% CTD when loading in quick mission. Is there anything that could fix this?

Tell what base game modpack you are using and you need to post a log.

A cool plane, iconic and earworming with a Kenny Loggins
tune. Can't get it out of my head.
Thanks for the work on this

Wonderful job. Flying nice on CUP 4.12.2 Jet Age, alongside Mirages, A-4s, F-4s, B-52s, Sukhois, Migs, A-6s...

Lots of kudos for the creators. Cheers.

A long time ago I got all excited when the F4U Corsair was put into Il-2. I was then all excited when the F-4 Phantom was introduced. This plane exceeds the excitement of both those planes put together!! Thank you so much for this new plane.

Before I go further let me say I've only been testing the F-14B over the South Vietnam MissionBug map. Aircraft weight: 100% fuel; no ordnance except "Default." Test altitudes: 2,000' ASL to 10,000' ASL. Speed range: Mach .70 IAS to Mach 1.4 IAS (ASI on panel).

Has anyone noticed control surface problems? I'm experiencing these phenomenon:

1/ Unintended rolling. At ~Mach .70 and above you roll left with full stick throw, pause until the plane rolls level and centre the stick; the plane continues to roll left a little slower. You then move the stick to the right - not all the way - to stop the roll and suddenly the plane is rolling right rapidly. I'll mention here that this tendency seems a tad random because I have moved the stick to the right past centre as the plane rolls level and the roll stopped but, sometimes, the plane then does the roll to the right. Looking from an outside view I notice the horizontal stabilizers, acting as elevons, seem to move too far and, again sometimes, the spoilers stay out. Both these events lead to the rolling.

2/ Lack of down pitch. There seems to be a large amount of down trim needed. The Input board shows my Elevator Trim as running about 55%-65% just to keep some semblance of level. When I'm flying level and pitch down the horizontal stabilizers go just a little bit down and the plane does a slow nose-down pitch. There then comes a moment when the plane ceases to pitch further down as though the horizontal stabilizers have leveled off. This I can live with if that's the nature of the beast but, if I'm doing something wrong I'd like to fix it.

Again, my heartfelt thanks for this great addition to this simulator.
