The most maneuverable WWII aircraft in history
Takeoffs are not done at 100 percent throttle, check the checklist to see what the boost pressure should be for a normal takeoff, and advance the throttle smoothly. For the Fw190 A8, this is going to be 1.42 ata and if you have plenty of runway you could easily take off with only 1.1 or 1.2 ata. However, you don't have to take forever to get it up to takeoff power, because the sooner you get there, the sooner the propwash will give you some rudder control. No doubt, these Fw190s needed more attention than most fighters of this type.Point-man wrote:Redrooster has it right. You have to slowly work the throttles up to 100%. Say open the throttle up to about 30% and let it get some speed built up then put it up to about 45 - 50%. Once the tail comes off the ground you should be fine to push the throttle up to 100% gradually.
