Hi,

That'll be the forces generated by the prop and engine. You need to compensate for it with a little rudder usage.

Dunno if this take-off guide (http://www.airwarfare.com/tutorials/starting_out.htm) helps.

MMmmm..

Been playing this Sim for years now.

And it would appear to me that. If you play missions. For the first few times on take of Yer plane will go careering of runway.

No matter how much rudder imput you bang in.
Or indeed modulated throttle imput.

Stick with it.It gets there after a few tries.

Alloy,

From Hanglands link: 3.)Lock Tailwheel

a) When starting, give gentle throttle increase. Don't slam the throttle wide open. You have a lot of torque modeled. The only place you do that is taking off from a carrier.
b) Get your tail up as soon as possible. It's much easier to steer that was. (be careful not to over compensate)
c) Practice, practice, practice.
d) Practice, practice, practice
e) Practice, practice, practice.
f) Practice some more.

In my opinion, one of the best planes to practice both takeoff and landing is the Sturmovik. Slow, forgiving and easy to manuver, this plane will help you gain the necessary techniques. Once you master the Sturmo, practice in your favorite plane. Stay with that plane until you master it. Trying other planes is fun, but for learning, stick with the one you like best.

My 2 kopecks worth.
Hope this was helpful.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

When you can consistantly get the I-153 up and down full switch you'll know you've got your basic stick and rudder skills dialed http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

You've discoverd something called torquehttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Lock the tail wheel, apply full opposite rudder to the direction the prop is turning in, increase the throttle slowly all the time correcting the rudder. After while and you get used to the plane your flying apply some trim if the plane has any and it will be easier for you.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

GODDAMMIT my friend. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

I only ever bought a computer and the original IL2. Soas I could experiance what it would be like to be a Sturmpilot.

I have to say the process has been somewhat enlightening.
This Whole series is for Myself as an "Oldtimer" something that has either blown our preconceptions. into the weeds and brought us down to earth.
Or is indeed a Great game. That has taught me more about World conflict.
And the ability to communicate with the siblings of all participants in a subjective/objective manner.
And for this, I salute all concerned

While you don't want to hold the tail down too long (unless you need to take off on a short or muddy field (and there are no short or muddy fields to worry about)), don't try to pull it up as soon as you can like Beebop says. If you try to force the tail up, the gyroscopic effect will throw you off the runway in the other direction and you'll probably dig the prop into the ground.

You should be keeping the stick in your stomach while taxiing to minimize crosswind effects and such (it really helps turning some planes in the sim). When you take off, just return the stick to neutral as you gain speed. The tail should lift up at about the speed it should lift up at. Then you just need to keep it centered on the runway until the plane lifts off by itself. The less you need to force it, the better.
