Just started playing around with the FMB. One aircraft, starting at an airfield near Calais. Put my waypoints, set the first one at Take Off. However, I always airstart at 500 metres. Am I missing something?

You're doing it right.

Set the first WP as Action::Takeoff



Optionally, set "Spawn parked" if you want to taxi to runway - latest RC patch puts you on runway engine/s running otherwise (use to spawn cold on runway - less than optimal)



Above works for me (atleast from shown airbase)

Try another airfield to see if you've found another bug?

You're not using a "homebase" selecting planetype and clicking "Create"?

Thanks. Might do to try the air base as shown. Not using homebase...clicking create? Should I?
