Hi there,

I started playing air combat sims not to long ago - mostly Battle of Stalingrad and Cliffs of Dover. But since I prefer Single Player (father of young children - pause button is my friend) net research brought me to BOB2 - which is praised for having one of the greatest campaigns and ai available for flightsims. Since not even the windows 10 fall creators update fixed the problems with the OS I even installed an additional Win7 on my Desktop...

Now I'm trying to familiarize myself with my favourite plane - the Emil via IA - but wether follow your leader or turkey shoot - I can't catch my bait and I don't understand quite what I'm doing wrong...

That I can't follow a Spit in a curve is clear to me - but both the leading 109 and the escaping spit are faster in level flight and in dives...

I'm flying with complex engine managment and try to keep 2400 rpm and 1.3 ata. I handle the stick as smoothly as possible and try to keep the slipping ball in the center - anything else I could try?

Hi Eisenfaust, my guess is you might not be benefiting from manual propeller pitch or elevator pitch trim adjustments assigned to your joystick.

Thanks for the answer - but I'm not sure what you mean. Prop pitch i'm controlling by two buttons on the Joystick. Elevator trim by the coolie hat. In maneuver combat I trim the upwards to make recoveries from steep dives easier.

I was thinking maybe you were not adjusting prop pitch manually or that it might not be having any effect but it sounds as though that probably isn’t the answer. I can’t test what sort of speeds are usual at the moment as I have a driver problem but maybe another 109 pilot will be able to help.

I haven't flown the me109 in anger yet, still busy with the RAF campaign. This youtube Me 109 take-off video may help in some way, there may be something you are overlooking.

There are some other bob2 109 vids to be seen there as well.

Here are some 109 discussion threads:

They may help, or you may just find them interesting as a 109 fan.
