F4E Adv can't rise off the runway

Recommended Posts

I've posted this on the Milviz Forums as well, I just hoped maybe someone here has an idea what might be going on.

Basically, I can't take off. I start up, everything on and seemingly ok. I push throttles forward and hear the afterburners kick in. I build speed and reach v1 and V2-have moved to rotate and the nose pulls up around 10, 15%. But that is it, I don't rise from the runway but continue on the back wheels. It maybe that the front has not fully  lost touch with the runway either but I can't really tell. Anyway, I shoot off the end of the runway. Depending on where I am I keep moving at speed and then , eventually, the nose flips up, a/c gains height quickly, like a rocket, but I've now lost control altogether and she starts to stall and drops like a turning brick. If anyone else has had this problem I'd love to know, and especially how anyone may have addressed it. If you think I've left something out of start up or am performing an incorrect manoeuvre- I'd appreciate any help.
