After an extended leave, I find AEP has been out on the market and now PF is coming.

But, I went ahead and reinstalled my IL-2, and FB. Downloaded the 1.1a and 1.2, then the 122over10 FB after checking in tech support.

Result?

I head out to fly my first mission in a campaign in a 109G-6 1943.

As I kick my motor up to 70% power, the engine overheats and quits in 1 second flat.

Taking off is impossible, so I figured I must be doing something wrong. I fly autopilot with the group to the engagement, release, kick the power to 70%...poof. No engine.

Always something new.

If anybody has a cure for THIS one, let me know, I'd appreciate it.

If your prop pitch is too high, you'll smoke the motor quick in a '109. try keeping the rpms down below 2700 or so

Yeah real quick.. try setting prop pitch to auto till you get your legs wet.

Thanks guys, turned it off completely and the problems all went away, in fact it ran so clean I flew the best formation flying I ever did.

Weird. Staying with the wingman like that :P

Scratch one IL-2. Only 249 to go to the Swords.
