Just thought I would add my own track here if it's any help to anyone, or if anyone has any tips on how to improve my takeoff and landings

Hi guys,

just wanne say, i fly the FW190 as an RC plane (2,2m wingspan). And i know the aerodynamics of wing profiles and planes a bit. In reality you just have to pull the elevator a bit an give a bit right rudder at the first few meters. Thats all!

IMO the take off modelling of the dora in the game is *sorry* currently totaly crap. You can't controll your tail with the rudder if its breaking off. Thats funny and everything but not realistic. I hope that we will see a few changes till release...

Just my thoughts...

Well I takeoff basically the way you say you do with your RC plane. I taxi a bit to make sure the tailwheel is straight then full power, balance it with rudder then when reaching 150-160 I slowly re-center the stick and then the plane takes off by itself. If necessary I compensate for the left wing drop caused by the prop with a bit of aileron. Not very different from what you describe.

You do know that the flight model is tuned to the experience of an actual pilot who has flown the thing in ww2? Mr. Eric Brunotte.

I dunno how big the engine in your 2,2m model is, but i am sure it doesnt even have a fraction of the torque of the actual thing, keeping aside the obvious differences in behaviour due to size and weight...

I will do some videos for how I do take off and landings of the stang and 190 during the week

Its alot easier then people make it out to be and with practice smooth take off and landings are quite easy to achieve

I honestly can't see what the problem is. It just takes practise!

The 'totally crap', and 'needs re-working' comments are, forgive me, are a little 'short sighted' (to put it mildly).

This flight is after half a bottle of wine, a little annoyed by the negative comments, I wanted to post a vid - perfect it aint -but will perhaps help some.

For the love of ***** practise some more before passing judgement - it's totally do-able.

This 190 is an absolute joy thanks ED!

Absolutely a charm to handle this Fw190 D9.

In this post, on this very same thread I even made it a bit more challenging by adding a x-wind of 8m/s, and turbulence factor at 45.

Took off, entered right downwind, overshot the rw, re-aligned and landed in a crab, uncrabing not very well, but I was in a hurry to go to work...

And, Hafer, you shouldn't really try to compare a 2,2m RC model with a real fw190 modeled here..... On a takeoff in a simple Piper Super Cub, IRL, your tail is everywhere if you watch the takeoff run, and you really "dance" with the rudder!
