I put a video online as well as the trk. I specify that the action happens at the end of the trk

I just did a test on the burningskies server, in fact, we can not fly any more than 4mn since the update of the A8. If it's a bug fix then it would have been nice to let us know.

Where to start????

You've repeatedly been given advice regards RPM and Boost settings and yet, despite your claims that you are observing these restrictions, here you demonstrate that you are completely ignoring them.

Mistake #1:

Bursts of 8lb boost to taxi?! You're putting the engine under huge stress right there. Use sufficient throttle to give 1100-1500RPM.


Mistake #2:

Was your oil pressure under 100lb/sq in before takeoff? Certainly didn't look like it to me.


Mistake #3:

Recommended Takeoff Power & RPM: 8lb Boost @ 3000 RPM

Your Takeoff Power & RPM: 18lb(!!!) Boost @ 3000RPM - that's War Emergency Rating

Need I say more?


Mistake #4:

Recommended Climb Power & RPM: 12lb Boost @ 2850 RPM

Your Climb Power & RPM: 18lb Boost @ 3000RPM - again, that's War Emergency Rating


I strongly suggest that you start absorbing some of the good advice you have been given and actually apply it to your Engine Management in game.

Fenrir is right.
Your boost management is all over the place. No wonder you are killing your engine.

Slamming the throttle back and forward like that.. ouch!
At 1:06 . . 21 lb boost right after takeoff, with low airspeed! you're at 21lb boost with 120 mph IAS and the gear is still down!

Furthermore, this is minor, but you really need to get the aircrfat in trim too. It will improve airspeed and get better cooling into the radaitors.

You can't treat this aircraft that way. You're flying well outside of recommended/ prescribed limits.

you can pull 18lbs t/o but you have to force open radiator flaps for sure normaly i use 12lbs boost for t/o than right after t/o i drop rpm to 2850 so i dont need to move thorttle this way.
expecting running this engine 18lbs continous is ridiculous for me.
bug officialy fixed it was pilot's bug

Before the update of the A8 I had no problem despite my way of driving ... But I realize that I'm a little brutal I'll try to be less violent.
thank you for all

take note that 18lbs boost is eqivalent of 67" in p-51 and this boost kills p-51's engien preaty fast
that indicate that ED did some tweaking in spit engine
right now in A8 you can fly close to 3500rpm with no damage to engine

Don't forget, A8 is still ea and that will probably change.
