    Default A little more demanding than the b-17! A b-24 to conquer!

    I say it is more demanding, but it does help to read the Checklist/Procedures that come with the download. I think I have it down now. It did take a little more to figure it out. The B-17's were more of a "Plug and Play," whereas this one played "hard to get!"

    They're all different in their own way. You just have to stick with it and figure them out.

    Thanks Larry and David! Yes, had some challenges. I fly all my sim aircraft in and out of Charleston, SC, RWY 33, 9011' Rwy. I had this sweetheart (I can say it now, but not yesterday or earlier this morning) set for takeoff, 10* flaps, power up, released the brakes and off we go. This A/C ate up almost all of the 9011' runway before it agreed to fly, and it was pushing 145-150 KIAS! I went to the aircraft.cfg, shed 40% of available fuel, still acted up, increased the up travel of the elevator by 3*, still no good. Just out of curiosity, I opened the file and it had a B24 checklist/procedure that says "20* flaps, power up, release the brakes, and rotate at 130 KIAS, yeah right! I did just what it said, and at 130 KIAS, my SWEETHEART more than agreed to take me for a ride! 20* flaps was all I needed! I put everything back to normal and we now have a solid relationship!

    Thanks guys! Rick

    Yeah, Jan, I have become a Multi-Functional kinda guy! I need to find a couple new hangars with all these large aircraft I have been downloading!
    Thanks for commenting!

    The Liberator is a beauty Rick, I always find it helpful to reduce the weight because with her they probably put a bombed-up weight in aircraft.cfg, and you are taking her for a check ride, not a bombing mission. Just calculate roughly how much a load of bombs weigh on a typical B-24 and deduce that off the empty weight of the ship and she will take off nicely.

    Well, I have a keeper for sure! Now I wish I had a way to changing the title of this thread! I found a couple more issues that was happening and with the patient person that I am (yeah right), I manage to get the resolved. I now have a very nice flying 4 engine warbird. This will have a permanent spot in my hangar!
