S!

 

I have been tinkering with the Ju 88 online today and take-off at 1.0 ATA and cowl flaps at 100 per cent. The engines die in a few minutes.

 

What am I doing wrong?

 

Any advice would be appreciated and thank you!

Take note ;

 

Cruise - Rpm 2250 ata 1.15

Climb - Rpm 2400 ata 1.25 ( 30 minutes)

Takeoff - Rpm 2600 ata 1.42 (1 minute)

 

So look at your Rpm:s, after you have airborne and lower them to climb Rpm:s asap.

Thank you.

 

I have been looking at the ATA and it has been 1.0 ATA, even 0.8 ATA.

 

Rather odd.

Simpler:

Take off at 100% throttle and rpm.

As soon as you are airborne:

Throttle 90%, rpm 87%.

 

This works.

Looking rpm and Ata have not so much sense in BoS

And remember the cowl shutters

So, keep cowls open at 100 per cent? And take off at 100 per cent throttle and then 90 per cent...?

Keep cowls open at takeoff and close them, when needed ( oil indicator on engine cover ), safe <100 max 130. Water temp you can control with ata and rpm:s, norm. 80 and max 110. Ofcourse cooling oil temp cool the whole engine, so if water temp get too high, opening cowls cooling water too, but it's better just to lower rpm:s and ata.

 

If you just fly with Ju88 or just with anything specific, you can learn what throttle and rpm % settings are safe, but if you fly with other aircraft too, you better get to knowledges the safe engine settings ( takeoff, climb, cruise, combat, emergency, boost, landing ) and you get them from aircraft specifications ( takeoff, cruise and combat are normal notes, others you may have to learn by your self ). Just make notes.

 

Rpm, ata or mp ain't senseless in BoS.

I do this, but I use flaps too once I get rolling (~20ish %). The only thing harder than taking off the ju88 is landing it, but once airborne it handles like a dream. Good luck!

Fallen for the Ju 88. Just flown it on Wings of Liberty and claimed two fighters and with four 500-lbd bombs, took out a vodka distillery followed by a train and carriages. Fly at 80% throttle, 87% RPM, open cowls and you're good to go with a steady 400 kmh. Just need to learn how to level bomb...
