It's not that I have a lot of problems with carrier landings (Less than with normal landings, in fact), it's just that those CVEs are really made for planes like the FM Wildcat and not the bigger Hellcats and Corsairs (Or maybe I just had bad luck that time)

@Schroeder
It's true that you have a nice piece of art there, but I, the artist formerly known as Raptor1, shall prove that I am the greatest artist...soon...

Fincuan 07-30-08 08:23 AM

Is that an Essex class CVE in the drawing? :lol:

Here's one shot from yesterday. The others are gone. There was a small... uhmmm... shall we say "landing accident"?

That's the way I do it, and it's never failed me before.

Lol, Keni.

Have you ever used a Me-163? I've been able to hit 44k but never above 50k (because I magically stall out and go down in a violent spin that usually results in my jet breaking apart).

Here's a shot of a custom Fokker D.VII from Full Canvas Jacket:

And finally, here's a cut-out shot of the Fokker DR.I that I flew in Full Canvas Jacket's multiplayer mode:

That's an interesting way to land, but why switch off the engine? You'd get a much larger margin of error with it running. I usually do either a curved approach(as in Schröder's drawing, but only straightening out at the final moment), or a steep approch with a shallow final. Either way bringing it down with the hook down, full flaps and just above stall speed works every time.

You can also do it like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIFRQ3FNCgA

I've found that switching it off can help improve lining it up with the deck for a safe landing (keeps you from having to deal with ANY torque).

Schroeder 07-31-08 08:56 AM

Yeah, but if you fail on the approach you have no way to go around.:hmm:

I usually land with zero throttle (on a carrier) there you don't have to deal with much torque and are on the safe side if you should fail to go land properly.

Dowly 07-31-08 09:40 AM

I always have atleast 20% throttle (lately 35-40%) when landing, be it carrier or land. 109 for example is much easier to control when you have your throttle open. :yep:

Raptor1 07-31-08 10:00 AM

When I land on a carrier I always come in a straight line while changing the throttle around from 0% to about 40% trying to keep the speed at about 150-180km/h, then I go to 0% right before touching down

Can't say it's the best approach, but it works most of the time...

My FM-2's cockpit after a Zeke exploded in my face (They tend to do that rather often, unlike some other planes I know...):

Thats what happens what you don't have self sealing fuel tanks!

Remind me not to fly any real carrier landings with you! #4 really scares me! #4 should be right as you hit the deck and should read increase throttle to full power! This is how real planes do it so if they miss the wires, you can go around and try again!
