hey guys.. I've been using flight sim since version 95 was out, and I still having trouble with takeoff. I line up with the runway and everything, but I don't know what to do from here. whenever I rev up my engines my wheels want to turn to the right, so i turn down my thrust, but i can't get off the ground. also-- how far down the runway do I put my landing gear up? thanks in advance for your help guys... I really appreciate you reading this whole thing thinking I was serious when it's actually an April Fools joke. 😀

Is this with prop planes or jets? With prop's the torque of the engine will pull it to one side, if its a jet try turning on Auto Rudder. My Cessna Citation goes perfectly straight down the runway on take off.

Also pull up the gear as soon as you've established a positive rate of climb.

One day in the not so far future you will experience a terrible shock... when you discover that the majority of members don't read Yes

i can;t answer your firt question, i've never had problems getting off the floor. you put your gear up when you have a positive rate of climb - ie have a good climb rate and actually getting higher.

I did read the whole thing but I didn't think anyone was that damn lame to waste his time filling the forum with crap just because its april fools.

On the positive side, April fools day has come and gone so we can start to 'concentrate' on other irrelevant foolish chatter... but would anyone agree that we move over to the 'gossip forum' for this purpose in the future?

...or am I the lone voice in the wilderness again

You guys must be kidding me 😕

Solowto, your willingness to help is always appreciated, but please have some humor.

Pilotguy, I understand where you were going with this, but consider he may have skipped that part seeing as how it was a kind of run-on sentance, and you just threw it in after thanking us for help.

Take it easy guys -- Back to flying
