Hello

Fokker.g kindly pointed out to me yesterday that the fuel to the I-16 was gravity fed and so negative G's would cut the supply.

I had a fly in the I-16 last night on a QMB and was fine ambling around the countryside at level flight but as soon as I started loops and dives my engine (quite rightly modelled) conks out.

I'm no flyer, so negative G's means very little to me. My realism settings are fairly low as I enjoy IL-2/FB as a great game rather than as a serious sim.

I wonder if any of the more serious flyers can offer any advice on how to fly this plane and recover from the engine stalls?

Thanks, Lee.

It is not possible to recover your engine once it´s been shut down inflight...unfortunately...Just try to always make positive G turns and when starting to dive, don´t pull the stick, just roll inverted and then pull it, to avoid engine failure.

Don't push forward on the stick and it wont quit.

so I dive by rolling and pulling on the stick?

The negative G maneuvers are where the plane is accelerating downward, i.e., in the direction of your feet as opposed to your head (the acceleration is important relative to the engine, not gravity). Pulling back on the stick causes positive Gs, pushing forward causes negative Gs. The engine needs a strong enough negative G-force to cut out the engine entirely. Avoid flying upside down for very long, and avoid pushing the nose down hard with the stick. You can push the stick forward to dive, just not too hard too fast.

When maneuvering in combat, use the quick roll rate to invert (180&deg/i/smilies/16x16_robot-wink.gif and then pull back on the stick. Pulling back on the stick accelerates the plane in a way to counteract being upside down, so you can use this method to initiate a quick dive.

If you hear the engine starting to starve for fuel, immediately change to a positive G maneuver until the engine recovers. Basically, start applying back pressure on the stick right away. You can also quickly roll one direction or the other so that you don't zoom climb too hard. What I mean is that you can roll on your side and do a quick horizontal turn to keep the positive G without losing too much airspeed in a zoom climb.

Cheers,
Mike

Thank you all, hopefully I'll put some practice in tonight.

Can't restart in midair, need the Huck's starter truck, back at the airfield. Try to get back to base if your engine is out. To cope with diving, half roll first, then pull back on stick to go down. Can also chop throttle first, then dive. Either way, its slower then a fuel injected motor. Try the Hurricane too. It has the same problem, but at least you can restart in midair. The I-153 has the same M62 engine as the I-16.

You can use the "Autopilot" cheat to restart in flight.

I'd never join a club that would have ME as a member!!.
