I'm having a little trouble getting the hang of the P-80. I continually seem to stall the engine. Now, I have become quite good at mid-air restarts, but I'd like to know if there is some sort of trick to keeping her engine lit.

Throttle up/down slowly.

It's also air speed related. I'll usually get a flame out in a high yoyo without touching the throttle.

I already do, she flames out even when I'm just cruising along.

High E turns above 400 KPH seem to do it too, guess I'll just have to be more gentle with her.

I never flame-out unless I change throttle position quickly. Granted, I'm very gentle on the stick, but I have pulled hard enough to cause complete blackout (loose control) on several occaisions.

I had lots of flameouts when I first started playing with the P80. The very top of my throttle has a dirty spot. I recallibrated so that 90% throttle deflection equals 100% throttle in game(so I wouldn't hit that dirty spot) and flameouts went away.

I also notice that at 100% throttle the flame outs will occur without question. At 80% throttle they seem to be infrequent, but will occur at least once per flight.

Now with 40 skins and counting!

Check your joystick to see if the throttle axis is spiking; that's fixed a couple of people's flameout issues here.

My question is how the hell u keep a jet engine from overheating?. Seems like anything over 90% puts u over the limit, unless your going over 700 Kph or so. Or......is that the thing to it?

I may be replacing the joystick soon enough anyways, but I will check it when I get fly next time.

Keep speed up = keep engine cool.

On take-off, just ignore the temp problem. Climb out slow, and shallow angles, and allow the plane to gain speed first, and altitude second.

I usually don't have much trouble on take off, it always seems to occur when I'm at altitude.

I set it at 90% and don't touch it again.

It might be helpful to ask RL jet jocks - what causes (or caused) flame outs in real life situations? Too much fuel? Too little? Does it vary from engine to engine?

Enquiring minds want to know!

I had always thought that with many earlier jet engine designs that abrupt, high AoA manuvers could cause compressor stalls. Perhaps this is what is being modeled. At any rate, I'd imagine being smooth on the stick is essential for handling that plane.

I know Early jet engines had all sorts of problems, so I don't doubt the modeling of the P-80's twitchy engine at all. I was just trying to find away to be more successful with her.
