View Full Version : BF110 Take Off

Newbie alert!

Any tips on how to take off with a BF110 using full engine management and flight model settings? I don't seem to be able to get above 70kph... doh!

drop flaps to takeoff, lock tailwheel, start BOTH the engines, make sure you have both engines selected and push the throttle forward... at around 100km/h push the stick GENTLY forward, to raise the tailwheel off the ground, and at 200km/h pull the stick to get the plane airborne.... raise gear & flaps, etc...
just use the same procedure like with any other aircraft. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Choose left engine start it.

Choose right engine start it

Choose all engines.

Throttle up like normal and all is well.

(I bet you only started one engine eh?)

Um... okay.. I did start both engines but didn't throttle up both engines so just made large circles on the runway at 70kph!

Thanks for the tips, took off.. yeh!

Now, I'd like to join on line but most servers seem restricted to cockpit views which makes taking off a little bit... well.. blind. Any tips on keeping a straight line down the runway?

Thanks again

yes...use the largest field of view - shift
+F1 out of gunsite view and 'page down' key...

line up the edge of the runway in one of your side windows and keep it there as you roll forward...

now throttle up and push the stick full forward ....as the tail rises or 'flies' relax the forward stick pressure to keep the nose level- you should be able to maintain a strait heading down the strip this way.

when you reach flying speed...well - you know the rest.

Line up on a cloud that is centred on the runway and track that till you lift off.


Look out at about 9 or ten o'clock position and use the edge of the runway to line up on that.

But my best advice is practice lots more offline - first.

Thanks for all the replies!

Nice plane!

Yes.. a little more practice may be needed... ooh.. what this Hyperlobby thing... now, if I press this little button... weeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Yes, I did that a few times on my first CEM twin engined aircraft scenario. I have Left set to O and Right set to L, which makes it close to the engine buttom. However, you have to unselect one then select the other, which leads to a lot of confusion when I'm trying to turn off one of the engines thats smoking, on fire etc.

But the 110 is a gem to fly. I started a couple of days ago and get more kills in it than a fighter! Most ppl just park dead 6 right behind me and I nab the pilot, but today I always seem to get killed, and I'm not allowed to go back to pilot view. ...Anyway

Good luck! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

...well there I was in my BF110 on the BF110 parking place and turning one engine on and then the other one and watching the planes taking off and zooming in and and out with the cockpit view and just generally putzing around without going anywhere.

Took a deep breath and throttled both engines up and trundled towards the runway. But which end? Some were taking off one way, some the other way and some landing as well. I looked left and looked right and taxied to one end as something flew very close overhead...eeek.

After taking off successfully I was enjoying the scenery trying to figure out what the sirens meant and... *BAM*... no, not someone trying to have a go.... server map changes.

Anyway, I had a few flings with a BF109 and getting shot down. I mean, where do they come from? Eh, eh? I'm minding my own business and out of nowhere and I get lots of smoke and holes in my screen.

If the server allows it, press F2 to go to external view, and you can keep an eye out for these nasty people. If not, just use your mouse to look around a lot, and switch to the gunners spot as well and check your tail. Also, practise a lot of gunnery, you're gonna wanna take em out quick when they're up your @rse http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Well, I see these spots in the distance and I can't quite figure out whether it is something moving or something slightly unwholesome stuck to my screen... so a screen wash is in order.

And I'm flying along towards one of these screen dots (or chunks) hoping for some action and I see little dots drifting to right and left and then.. rata-ta-ta-ta-t-at-at-a-tat and its goodbye BF pie. I did put in some twists and dives and turns to lengthen the inevitable...

Any newbie servers?

Trollville_304 if you like pit off. Its newbie friendly, but there are some good pilots there so be carefull.
Also, once when you get used to that map (it's somewhat hard in the begining because map is large and the *map* icons are off), you will be just fine. Follow the instructions on briefing carefull.

If you do not have Pacific Fighters (you are running Aces 2.04) then try Trolville_204.

Both on Hyperlobby.

Thanks, Atomic_Marten, I'll give them a try.
