    INFORMATION (please read before posting questions):

    Spawning

    When spawning look for the motor rpm to stabilize, if they are slowing down hold V to restart the engines. Now you are ready to fly.

    How to fly:

    With the aircraft on the runway, Press M for Setting the flaps to takeoff position. Then Throttle up with T while Holding Z to hold position(Rb when using an Xbox Controller). Release the Brakes when the engine holds a steady Rpm.

    At 180km/h or above, pull up gently and take off. If using an XBox controller, pull the left stick down only half way to avoid a stall.

    The aircraft will try to nose down with the gear extended due to drag. Once above 220km/h, raise the gear by pressing N. When the aircraft reaches 300km/h, it will fly straight and level without input. At speeds above 300km/h negative pitch will be necessary to maintain level flight. Top speed is approximately 450km/h. Avoid full-deflection manoeuvring above 350km/h as this may result in structural damage. Instead, use half-strength control inputs (if using an XBox controller). If you pull more than 4 G structural weakening will occur, and at 6G your wings will rip off.

    Landing:

    Reduce power to 30% and when reaching 250 Km/h press N to extend the landing gear
    and M for extending the flaps to landing position once. This will slow the aircraft down to around 200km/h. When you are at the landing strip, press G till the engine reaches to 2k rpm to select idle throttle. Pull up to maintain a gradual rate of descent.
    If airspeed falls below 180km/h, press T to increase power, and then G again to resume gliding. Flare before touch down to avoid wheel or gear strut damage. Aim to touch down at 165-180km/h. Once on the runway, press Z once to activate wheel brakes.

    Taxiing:

    Taxiing is accomplished by alternatively pressing T and G to keep speed below 50km/h.Try to avoid long periods of acceleration as the plane reaches high speeds fast. As in real life, there is no nosewheel steering so wheel brakes are essential for turning at low speeds. To make a full 180 degree turn, reduce speed to 10km/h, set idle throttle (G), turn fully to the left or right. The aircraft will pivot on the locked wheel and the nose wheel will caster. After the turn ensure the nose wheel is straight by taxiing forwards a few metres.

    Bombing:

    Select 4x500lb bombs from the Ordinance slot in the Ctrl-W parts menu. Open the bomb bay doors using , and press . to release bombs one at a time. Bombs will arm in mid-air when a certain distance from the aircraft, but may still be close enough to cause damage so ensure sufficient altitude to clear the blast. You can also try skip-bombing by releasing at very low altitude such that the bomb hits the ground before arming and embeds itself in the target from the side. The bomb will then explode after you overfly the target.

    It’s a good mod, but since 0.20 I’ve been having texture problems, and everytime I crash the plane into water it says instability detected and brings me back to where I spawned. Overall it’s a good plane. Though I will give 4 stars until the bugs are fixed.

    my favorite plane... but since 0.20 update liveries are faded to almost white and are buggy also, textures are missing on the inside please fix (maybe make other planes like the Lancaster and spitfire from ROR. maybe a ME109,FW190 or a p51,p38 whatever just more planes so we can dogfight in BEAM-MP)

    Great mod and my favorite plane to fly. However, it would be nice if the prop hubs and shafts were stronger as they blow apart when they are at redline rotation speed.

    It's an amazing mod - I just seem to be having an issue since the 0.20 update where some interior textures are missing. Other than that, it still works!

    I tried clearing cache, disabling all other mods, re-downloading, etc. but it still seems to be happening. Hopefully there will be a fix :)

    Only 1 issue - when I retract the landing gear it starts making a a weird impacting noise. How do I fix this?

      It is a known issue. Thank you for reporting it. As I am rebuilding many parts of the aircraft, it will be fixed in the process

    One of the BEST mods I have ever seen! But there is a problem: when I spawned the plane in-game, the defaut key settings were empty and the livery had gone all wrong. Why is that?

      You should look if there are any older versions of this mod in your Game folder and remove them. Just dm me if you have questions or Need help

    This mod is too good, we don't deserve it. I only wish it had the same cockpit camrera as the cars where it automatically centers
