My squad experianced problems upon returning to base after completing a mission. We all use different systems and different flight sticks, So we know it is not just one particular anything.
Problem:
We could not get the engines to throttle down under a certain point when coming in on each of our final aproaches, as the throttle seemed to stick at one speed. No one was able to bring their throttle under 200. We ended up having to cut the engine off in order to land safely.

This problem did not exsist prior to the patch.

I already send a bug report email about this.

The problem is not with the throttle at all, it's the way the prop pitch is modelled in the patch.

When you are landing you need to set throttle to 0% but also need to set prop pitch to 0% in order to slow down.

Don't know if this was also the case in real life so I made my bug report more of a question.

But if you're not flying with 'full real' settings, you don't have control of prop pitch, only throttle settings. The game's supposed to take care of prop pitch under these circumstances and evidently isn't doing so.

What I don't follow is why only certain planes such as the Hurri, for example, are experiencing this throttle issue. The 109s don't appear to be affected at all.

Correct, I really wonder what's going on here because fighting with these fighters is pretty anoying since you have to adjust the prop pitch all the time in order to slow down or speed up.

When landing a P-47 with the advanced engine maegment off i noticed that the trothel collum in the Virtual cocpit go's back to the center by its self as did the throttle input towards 74 %

the only way I could overrule this was by holding the key.
My Cougar throttle is worthless now!

May I bring your attention to this same thread in the GD...

I feel this is a serious problem.

Have to agree. If there is no fuel going to the engine (you've just "throttled" it) then the power should decrease dramatically, and with it thrust, which won't overcome the drag, therefore you should slow down...

Exactlly! As they are at the moment some of the a/c are the most efficient gliders that any aerodynamacist could dream of!
