I had this in IL2 campaigns already, and now again in the FAF campaign mission 9 second war.It is raining for the first time in a mission as soon if you power up the trothlle the Hurricane pulls to the right even with full left rudder, tailwheel locked and brakes on! there is no way you will keep the a/c on the runway! I overcome this by restating the mission and when ready to take off throtle up relaese brakes and press the button for autopilot as soon as the a/c leaves the ground I take over again on landings you have to left side of the runway and forget about taxiyng if you made a save landing you did fine i think!

In the same mission i discoverd that with the turbulence that kicks in on low level or clouds somethimes the enginge quits because of the movement of the a/c and the merlin that suffers from cut off feul at negative moves. Nice feature but it is overmodeled if it cuts off in level flight because of turbulence!

You just lose rudder control because of the strong cross wind.You must use differential wheel breaks to keep the aircraft lined. Its not that easy just like in real life where sometimes with heavy cross winds its a pain in the *** to take off or land with.


About the engine, remember that it cuts off not only when upside down but with negative Gs as well. So if when the turbulence if heavy, the decendent wind can be enouth strong to give ya negative Gs for a moment no matter the aircraft's attitude.


Hope it helps.

I can't even taxi with this amount of pulling away from the center line of the runway as soon as i give trhottle the a/c starts turning clockwise even when stationary with the rudder opossite, tailwheel locked brakes on!
That is no crosswind I would say.I just can't pull the plane in the anticlocwise direction period.
as I said using the autopilot is the only way to perform a take off!

Try locking your tailwheel./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Well... then give up man. The wind is too strong, a storm maybe and the tower should not let you fly under these conditions. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I was actualy hoping on a serious answer to my problem ( it is the technical Support forum!)but hey If it storms that hard ishould not even be made to take off cause the enemy can't fly either!
but so far i have not heard other people experiencing the same

I think it's a bug in the Hurricanes. The best I can get with the IIc is to track straight-ish ... there is still a strong pull to the right.

I believe you raised this in ORR too?

Nope... i dont think its a bug only with the Hurricane. That happens also when trying to take off with the IL2 under bad weather/raining conditions. So im 99,9% sure its extremely strong cross wind.

Lets say that its a 'bug' because developers created sorties with so extreme cross wind that we cant play correctly. Under such weather nobody should be allowed for take off. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

It's not a bug,it's a VERY strong crosswind. You'll need full rudder, brakes, joystick pushed a bit towards the windward side and about 10-15% throttle to stay pointed straight after starting your engine. The little bit of throttle adds some more airflow over the rudder/vertical stabiliser to give more rudder authority.
