Hello, I was testing out one of my coops as a single player and decided to turn on the AI for my He-111 pilot for a bit. When it was my turn to take off, I floored the throttles, but the plane wouldn't budge. I hit the brake key once, and the plane immediately gunned itself foward. I'm just curious, does the AI have its own parking brake?

This should be in "General Forum" ORR is for changes to the game and error reporting...

But anyway - some planes have brakes on for starters... In RL some planes needed the pilot to "pump up" the brakes .... In the game just hit the brakes (if assigned on a button) some times - if assigned on foot-pedal - you lucky git! - pump em http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

And oh - general take-off procedure - lol

Line up on runway - STOP
Pump brakes... then hold them - FULL BRAKES
rev up engine (throttle) to max keeping prop pitch at 30% (allmost all planes but NO GERMAN PLANES) then release brakes when plane starts to move... upping prop pitch to 100% slowly...
and take off...
