Lately I've been practising carrier takeoffs and boy is that frustrating.I put in the "take off from fantail" patch but it doesn't seem to do much good.
Some planes will take off just fine ,other like jets and heavely loaded planes stall as soon as you lift off.
I have increased the power scalar and that seems to work on some planes ,like the Banshee but others like a loaded down Hellcat just stalls every time.
I've gotton to the point where I lift off without any ordance ,then add the ordence after I'am airborn, or I even use slew to get the plane in the air,but that's somewhat of a pain .First you start the engines and hold with brakes(I have CH rudder pedals) then lower flaps then go to settings and disable joystick ,because if you don't and hit Y for slew, the planes goes nuts.Then I hit Y for slew and use the keys for forword then gain height ,then hit come out of slew, hit settings ,enable joystick ,raise the gear,milk up the flaps and your on your way.
Not very immersive.
Some planes don't even have power scalar in their config file.These are ones I have to use the takeoff without ordance or slew them into the air.Any other suggestions would be welcome.
