Lately I've flown Quick Mission dogfights and have experienced a problem. I have shot down several planes and haven't been hit at all, let alone in the engine, and my engine dies. I have fuel set on unlimited, so I'm not out of fuel. I'll just be flyin' along and suddenly I can't gain altitude and my engine just idle's no matter what I do. What's up with that?

If you're in I-153, I-16, or HurriMKI, it could be engine stall due to negative G.

In other planes, I'm not sure.

What plane? Some planes react adversely to negative G's or flying upside down...gravity fed fuel systems I believe. The I-16 is one example, and I have seen a Hurricane do it too...

That's about it.

Is Complex Engine Management on? If it is, maybe you're getting above 2500m and not adjusting mix or Supercharger stage accordingly? Just a thought.
