Hi All,

I just bought '46 the other day. I was have a great thim playing the burning streak campain (I think thats what its called) Its the one where you captured on the second mission and on the 3rd its 1946 and your esacping from the airfield in the Russian the l-250. The mission is a great idea. The problem is that the l-250 WILL NOT TURN when it is on the ground! The runway is on the left as you start, but the aircraft will not turn left even when I "kick" full left rudder. Sometimes it will start to go left and thne go straight on, other times it will push right!!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

Where am I going wrong???? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

I dont think its my joystick as any aircraft while flying seems to do just fine.

Thanks
Ecto.

Is your tailwheel locked?

it's the wind, the mission is set with bad weather, and it's not easy to take off in this mission, keep kicking your rudder, but kick the break too.

As harryklein66 said, use the brake and the throttle at the same time. You can turn the plane by doing this. When you get to about 60-70 kph the wind effect will drop off.

After X attempts I decided to go through the gate which is more or less straight ahead of you! It seems to be the only way...
Be also very surprised when reaching the last mission in that campaign!

Also try using your brakes while you try to turn. They help out a lot. Only do this when you are not moving or gong very slowly or you might nose over.

Thanks for the info!

I'm 100% sure my tail wheel was not locked.

I have tried going through the gate, but found that the ground was too bumpy to take off! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/disagree.gif

I will try the breaks tonight when I'm at home tonight, and hey, heres hoping I wont hit the little bike guys!!!

I'll let you know how I do......

You will be frustrated. Very frustrated http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif I know I was when flying this mission!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif
Left foot brake only resulted in a standstill...

The escape via the gate seems to be the only solution. Use of both engines did seem to get you airborne quickly.

After many tries with just the prop engine started, I finally tried starting the jet too. With both engines running and using brakes and rudder, I could turn left fairly easily. However, I have still not succeeded in getting into the air. The crosswinds make it very hard to control the plane and avoid obstacles.

For those who went through the gate, how did you manage to takeoff over the bumpy field? I tried that many times but could not figure it out.

Flaps in landing position, Brakes on, full throttle, release the brakes, aim for the gate, and with a bit of luck you will manage it

No luck needed in take-off. Get on the runway and take off there.

With combination of full left rudder - brake - throttle you have to aim between the hangar buildings on the left. Release the throttle when the plane starts to jump on the ground , but don't let it stop completely. I was pumping the throttle all the way on the ground. This way you can steer around the motorcycles and truck also.

The runway starts after the hangars, now you can use full throttle and flaps to take off. But your problems won't end here http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Trying to take off on the jumpy ground is like russian roulette, you might succeed, but most likely not.

RESULT.......kind of!

After a few tries of getting to the runway, I just said feck it and went for the gate, full power full flaps. Just about got in the air! Did a lazy turn over the woods as I looked at the map, it was the I saw that 2 Russian aircraft were taking off!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

"We'll see a about that" says I

Punching the power foward I move it to get them as they where taking off. The aircraft bouncing all of the place I lined up my shot pull the tigger and.......NOTHING!!!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif The aircraft is unarmed!!! Luckley I had plenty of speed so I put the nose up and climed to 3000 feet watching the 2 behind fall back. Because of this I ran out of fuel but just managed to glide her back over my lines.

It happened to me as well, running out of fuel. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif! Fortunately I was flying at 10000ft, so I could glide in without any problem.
Enjoy the rest of the campaign!

The runway is on the left as you start, but the aircraft will not turn left even when I "kick" full left rudder


Is it a UPS plane? They started that at Christmas with the trucks, but maybe it bled over into the planes too.

I took off down the runway. Made it safely home to the airfield. Though the landing was a dead stick powerless belly landing that broke the plane. More of a crash landing if I am honest. But the best I can manage seeing as I did not have a chute.

That mission is such a pain I shall never fly it again!

Turning into the wind use full rudder, some or plenty of brakes, play with the throttle.
I did take off from the runway, try 1/2 time, no flaps, stick forward to get the tail up first and ride it out.
My problem is that even making it to my own lines, dead sticking in, obviously unhurt, I only get the "refly" option

Cheat like I do. Go into that mission in FMB and turn off the bad weather!!! Then save and exit, play it, have fun.

Of course I could just be too dumb to increase the fuel load from 25%.........
Must have tried 30 times already, crashed and burned on friendly runway last time.

I will beat this.

That has to be the hardest/most frustrating mission in IL-2 ever. Whoever set it up is part genius and part masochist.

And even worse, in the case of the "storm" level winds the sim tries to represent, in a real life scenario similar to this all flights would be grounded due to weather anyway. There were many cases of missions being postponed due to weather in WWII. They did not fly in such storms in real life, too much risk to humans and valuable equipment.

I will beat this. It's easier on 100% fuel that is if you manage to take off, because on 25% there is no much room for an error. If you don't spot you airfield in time you will run outta fuel and that is really a bad thing on such crappy weather.
It can be done on 25% and on 100% (all fuel loadouts).

Well in any case here it is; how I did (http://www.esnips.com/doc/5f12a18e-a60a-4fff-87d9-aa5c0d3e87cb/DKoorI250-BS46escapemis3) it.

Don't give up guys - see what Derek Zoolander managed to accomplish on runways, despite the fact that he couldn't hang a Louie either.

As soon as your airborne call for help. When you cross your own lines you will be greeted by two He-162's who will take care of your pursuers. From then on you can take it easy on the throttle and head for home.

It is a difficult mission but the campaign is one of the best.
