Hi!

I'm playing first mission in USN fighter campaign. Engine started, i hold wheel brakes and wait for all fighters before me to take off. Ok, it's my turn to take off. I release wheel brakes. Nothing happens - my plane stands still. I recall something about "chocks". I go to controls setup, and bind a key for chocks. I press the chocks button - nothing happens. My plane stands still (with engine at 110% power).

Are there any conditions for chocks release? What I do wrong?

Btw, because of this, i switched to USAF campaign. First mission is a load of adrenaline http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif 2 P-40 against 10 zero + bombers. I managed to take down 2 zero and damage third, but was forced to retreat as quickly as I could - with jammed flaps and no ammo.

Second mission - Midway, P-40. Historical question - were there USAF P-40 on Midway?

If you HAVE bound a key to the chocks then your done.It´s simply just as you say engine full trottle and flaps for take off,then hit chock release and off you go!

Yeah make sure you bound the correct key. Once you hit the button, you will launch forward and soar the firendly skies.
