And I'm sure I've counted the dust plumes correctly. Then BOOM! I slam into my leader.


I swing it around forty five degrees to see what's going on up front and end up taking off way behind my leader.

Am I missing somthing here or is this just the way it's done?

How do you do it without externals?

Thanks, Chuck994

Is that a euphemism for, without the lights on?

You start your engine, give full rudder to one side, throtle up for a moment and right down again. This will give you a view forward, stopping you from bumping into your leader.

From the slewed position that friendly-flier mentioned, watch the prop of the plane in front. You will see the prop's revs increase as the pilot opens the throttle so start slewing back to face up the track. If you can see well enough then follow the other guy's dust, you can easily get off within 20-30 metres of him.
