  1. I was just being polite saying good bye to someone who was leaving. But considering you are still here, it seems now you just wanted some attention or just no luck fishing???
  2. That's right. You have to be very careful on air starts. Even modern engines computers cannot handle the entire process. It would be great if someone has the jumo 004 air start envelope and limitations to share here.
  3. You must have to be within the windmill start envelope to be able to airstart successfully. They said something about below 3000 meters I think.
  4. Really, really nice !!! Feels like starting a jet engine. Congratulations !!! Great decision increasing engine start complexity πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰
  5. Don't worry, CF!! That guy was too short for the 262 cockpit. We can see his eyes were below the gunsight level and the instrument panel completely blocked his sight. Jason needs a you must be this tall to ride sign on that booth.
  6. Well it seems the guy who said she is going to be out in Orlando Expo first is right.
  7. Thanks for including a FAB skin πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰ Going to download and test it right now. UPDATE: Hey Tom, can you check this skin from Boomerang ??? He has the right colours like the one we have here in the museum. Even your weathered skin has too bright/cartoon colors. If you can fix the propeller spinner color, plane camouflage and especially the FAB star, it is going to be a perfect skin. https://www.mediafire.com/folder/c7aycv4ku5vmp/Plane_Skins
  8. Some footage from a captured 262. We can see some interesting things as slats and a nice landing.
  9. Release date is tomorrow 🎯🎯
  10. You are welcome. Lets hope they release the 262 this week πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰
  11. We already can smell the jet fuel around. So we need to prepare for the 262 because jet engine operation has nothing to do with propeller ones. I really hope Devs can make a interesting manual start for the Jumo instead of a fully auto start. If I am not mistaken, historically every four 262s only three were able to start without flameouts or engine fires. So starting and managing the engines is half the fun when flying the 262. No FADEC (full authority digital engine control) back on WW2 = No "E" key only starts please. Lets list videos, manuals and stuff with technical data, operational procedures and our doubts to help everyone on IL2 jet age.

  12. 5!! For instance, if you remove the nose gun armor and two guns, it becomes so tail heavy with full tanks that it is dangerous to fly. Finally some real aviation limitations
