HermanGraf, I do try the Bf 109 occasionally. The tips are IMO applicable to any single engine AC in BoB2. Unless you ask about flaps settings - this not a tip, this is a part of the procedure
First know the procedure. Trim settings, flaps settings, propeller pitch setting
- everything to the last one. I don't know if there are complete per AC procedures available. AFAIK no. I see a task on the horizon
- find out the proper procedure. Sometimes I enjoy fighting a plane improperly configured for take-off/landing but it's not what we are looking for now.
- don't apply full throttle right at the beginning and later increase the throttle slowly
- at very low speeds you level wings only using rudder. Ailerons won't work yet. Right wing too low -> kick it (apply right rudder)
- few seconds later ailerons will start to work. Try to establish the right amount of both rudder and ailerons (stick) without changing it back and forth. Also try to memorize the amounts for characteristic moments of the run. Try to change the amounts smoothly as airspeed increases.
Not much but my take-offs and landings are far from perfect either.
Sorry if I repeated some of your advices. I know I did, but treat it like my "what helps me the most" list
I feel like I could try to prepare the tutorial including video recording of TO and landing. For Spitfire and Bf 109. I know that in the manual on page 193 there is a link to spitfire landing/TO video tutorial http://shockwaveproductions.com/forum/v ... php?t=5082
(check out the written tutorial there too!) but without controls position and flight parameters visible it's rather incomplete.
Does anyone have real TO/landing procedures for both ACs?
