Taking off in Pe-2 problems

Recommended Posts

In single player quick mission I don't have a problem taking off.

 

In the TAW server I was trying to take off from the Klin airfield and I could never get it fast enough to get the tail off the ground.

 

Here are the variables that are the same. 40 to 50% fuel. Bomb load is either 2x500, 4X250 or 10x100.

 

Here is what changes. 

 

In single player I start at take off so there is no taxiing involved.

 

In the Taw server I have to taxi of course. I don't recall the RWY heading but the wind was 2ms and was off my right tail.

 

Could a tailwind create problems for me when taking off?

 

I'm just lost, its almost like a brake is stuck after taxi. Or there is no power or something obvious I'm missing.

 

Thanks for your help.

Is it the 87 series? The two pe2 got different ways to adjust prop pitch

This is due to either prop pitch settings or mixture settings make sure both are on 100%

Thanks

 

It was the 35 series.

 

Didn't realize it had  manual pitch control.

 

When you start at the end of a runway for quick mission it must be preset for take off. That is why I never noticed it before. Knew it was something simple.

 

Thanks again guys.

Great!

 

Even with the 87 series, I find that I need to cycle my axis controls for RPM through their entire range to make sure that they are calibrated correctly and set to 100% for takeoff. I'm using a CH throttle quadrant.
