View Full Version : F6F5 take off from carrier problems after 3.03m

Just this odd thing...I´m playing an Iwo Jima campaign with the Hellcat of the RN.
Until 3.03 patch, I could take off rather easily with my plane loaded with a bomb (can´t remember the weight) and rockets. After the patch, it seems virtually impossible. I´ve tried to set lower fuel loads, but still can´t take off with that ordnance, which is the most effective for ground pounding Japanese troops and flak.
So, the only solution I´ve found is to let the plane take off with autopilot, which is not very realistic...
Is this new FM correct?

´This topic has been brought up a 100 times in the past weeks. The power output and acceleration of F6F and F4U is definately porked since 3.03. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif
Most of us trust that it will be corrected in 3.04 but we'll see...

Sorry for asking this again, but I couldn´t find an answer...Thanks a lot anyway.
