Swallowing my Pride (262)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The 262 has finally arrived, and with it, some new challenges. All taken sorties were flown on the unprofessionals server.

 

Enjoy.

Ha! I actually spat my coffee out! WHAT a familiar story. It really IS a bit of a 'challenge' to get the thing up and then, once up, to get it back down in one piece isn't it? Yer video pretty much sums up every owner of this machine right at this moment, dunnit?!! Cheers Wildcat, you made my mornin'!

Oh yeah, before I forget.....................

Haha thanks mate, yeah everyone I saw online was having similar issues. It was actually really funny to watch and fun to be involved in, despite the frustrations at the same time.

@Wanganui_Wildcat I tell you what, I got some joy in the takeoff by mot lowering flaps until I was getting up a good rip of speed. Seems to work a bit better (A BIT!!). There's not many airfields that are 'Swallow Friendly' though eh?.

What is the name of the server? From the JG27 we can organize a little Bodenplatte event like an airfield attack for the reds.
We have the recipe.

Great video!

I watch IL-2 videos on YouTube and they always make me feel like the least competent pilot here. Nice to watch others share some of the same frustrations!

 

Love the music choice too, though I'm partial to this version of Nessun Dorma:

I loved the video, thanks! Think it's called "Learning curve"

After running out of runway on my first three attempts, I bit the bullet and watched a Requiem tutorial.

Then I succeeded in taking off twice, but ditched it in a diving attack on a ship, then got shot down on my second flight.

Still haven't had the chance to try a landing. All very enjoyable though!

I knew it was you in the 47, but didn't realise you were the 262 I bumped, sorry about that! 

I figured you were trying to use the valleys in the 47, if I was slightly further back you would have cleared the ridge and I would have missed. Luck on my part really!
