View Full Version : Mistal bug?

11-24-2004, 10:05 AM
Is anyone else experiencing the mistal exploding upon release? I have flown the in game mistal coop mission and each time the mistal exploded right at release. I had the delay set to 10 seconds and have a key mapped to detach aircraft. Just wondered if this is a bug.

Keep airspeed below 230 Kph.
Make sure your dive is not too shallow.
You could try combat flaps (A Squadmate uses them)
In your dive get the mistel going down straight towards the target then seperate clean. No Jerking!
It takes a while but you will get it right

Hope this helps

I've found that it helps to just slightly pull back on the stick as you detach. If you pull too much, the tails of the two aircraft will collide.

Save tracks of your attempts, replay them in 1/4 time, and watch closely from an external view what the two planes do when you detach. You may even need to "frame-by-frame" with the pause key to see what's going on. You should be able spot problems, like if the Ju88 lifts into the FW, or the FW tail dips into the Ju88, etc.

Don't get discouraged, it took me a while to get the hang of the Mistel detach when I first tried it too. I still can't hit anything with it...

Has anyone been able to get the Mistel to takeoff from a carrier?
It seems like the chocks toggle key doesn't work for the Ju88 component.
Is this something that could be fixed?
