Hello all,
I was trying out the YP80 today and the dang thing just quit on me. It had a flame-out.
Good thing I was close enough to an airport.
Heres a short video of the incident.

You have to use the throttle in very small movements and keep it constant is my experience of it,beautiful lookin bird though but very tempermental! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

If I recall correctly you don't have to move the throttle past 80% but Steiner is correct; be very careful when you move the throttle.

Yeah, I watched the video. I like it. If I had never seen anything on the game before, there might have been a chance that I could think its real. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Nice landing, sounds like you were huffing and puffing...trying to set down without power without flipping over is tough.

The radio chatter was taken from an actual incident involving an F-16. None of those voices were mine. The whole thing was a hoax. I never had a flame-out, or an engine failure. I launched the mission with zero-fuel and glided in. I just made a deadstick landing, kept the track, and added that radio chatter later.

@ steiner562
A little while ago I tried the YP80 for the first time WITH fuel and it IS awsome to fly, but touchy.
I went against 2 Me262s and that is addicting. I managed to kill one, but the other one just climbed up and away like he wanted to go to the dang mesosphere or something. I couldnt catch him.

and yes, you gotta watch that throttle alright and move it carefully or she will have a melt down on ya.

Problem with P-80 is that it sometimes flames out if you push throttle to 100%. You can get all the way up to 99% perfectly safe, but try to stay below 100%.

I think this bug was adressed in one of the patches wasn't it? Do you have the latest patch?

Anyway, good job with the chatter! Very convincing and immersive.

Now ya tell me...well I was wondering why someone would be talking someone through a landing in Il-2 like that...though I'm sure some purists like to do that.


And yeah I got curious tried using a Y-80 earlier today and damn if its engine doesn't cut out whenever I change the throttle...

Thanks, I wasnt trying to be so deceptive, I thought these guys would pick up on that right away and see it was fake. But making the vid got me into jets now.
I found that after flying prop planes that the YP has a throttle you cant jerk around with.
After a dogfight I thought I was good to go and I was coming in on final approach and I backed off on power too fast, caught fire and had to bail, then the plane flew over the airfield pilotless and kept going for a long way before gently crashing about a mile from the field.
I want to find the spoiler or airbrake on that thing, because enemy jets seem to be able to slow down fast and I overshoot them. Also, how do you get a Normal Engine temp again when it overheats other than backing off the throttle?

Doesn't have airbrake until later... all you can do is flaps, or better spiral around enemy, or climb up and then dive down again so you don't lose so much energy.
As for normal engine temp, speed is a factor in this- if you stay fast, you won't overheat so much. Once you're slow and hammering the engine, that's when you're going to redline.
I personally turn off the messages on the screen. They just annoy me http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Dive to pick up speed. Above 700 or so kph you won't overheat at all, even with throttle firewalled.

going from 99% to 100% np when you are well over 300kph, and a not-radical AoA will not flameout/compressor stall the p80

560 kph at most altitudes will allow 100% with no overheat for p80

all other jet types 640 kph

over approx 5000m speeds must be increased considerably to aoid overheat
