I was flying a late model corsair he other day ( i forget which exactly) and took flack damage deom a japanese 20mm. Nothing major, just a small fuel leak which sealed itself up. However i found that my trottle wouldnet repond, despite the indicaton on the screen and in the cockpit the throttle moved http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Then my gear failed to respond, both in automatic and manually modes, yet the airbrake worked!

Is throttle damage modelled, or is this just a glitch? Im inclied to think glitch because earlier in the fligh a b24 was shot down and exploded, and as i flew past i saw 2 nacelles plummeting to earth.
strange

Yeah, throttle can jam due to battle damage, happens here and there.

CSP failures seem very common on Merlin powered planes.

I have had landing gear failure (had to use manual gear control).

I ALWAYS get a controls damaged message ! A farmer can throw a cow-pie at my plane and I get the "Rudder, elevator, and/or alerons damaged" message. And if he throws a patato at me, a "Pilot Killed" message !!!!!

Yeah, i deadsticked it in.... sadly overshot http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
I should have just tried to switch on the engine and hope for the best but i foolishly attempted to rip the gear off with a skid for a wheels up type landing.


Four rolls and two lost wings later i resolved to work on my landing technique. Still, any landing you walk away from.....

It's pretty common on the Sabre as well. I used to get it every half-dozen missions or so when I was doing a long Dgen career as a Tempest pilot.

Sounds like you were in a P-38 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

If so then it's obvious that the cow pie was just a near miss.

If he would have hit you...it would have knocked off both tail-booms http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

My crew chief and ground crew hate me. It seems that more often than not I have to baby my aircraft and not push it too drastically because SOMETHING mechanically will fail. I really need to replace that guy. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Yea, was flying a 109 (I was forced into it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif ), when on landing approach my throttle wouldn`t slowdown, staying on top whack. It took me a few moments to realise and I switched off the engine. unfortunately, I overshot and was forced to crashland.

It`s this attention to detail that I love. No other sim replicated such failure that resulted in constant power, not less! First time it happened (in a Russian plane), I spent half an hour checking my joystick controls cos I thought the stick had broken!

Actually, maybe it's just me, but this kind of stuff NEVER happens. The closest I've seen is I BnZed a tempest that was taking off, killed the pilot, then it nosed over and started firing all cannons.

I almost miss loss of hydraulic pressure: no flaps, no radiator changes, have to crank the gear on approach....

Hold the phone, was there really loss of hydrolics modelled in here? If it was why did they take it out? People cry too loud or something?

It's still there AFAIK. I've had it happen to me.
