How do you 109 drivers use prop pitch? I found if I leave it in auto, I don't get max performance. Also, the only way I can use manual prop pitch is to hit the key for auto prop pitch and then use the prop pitch increase/decrease keys. Its kinda tough in a combat situation. Any suggestions to make it easier?

thanks

I have Shift+1-0 as my prop pitch controls and it works well.

HOTAS makes things much easier. I've got an X-45, and set prop pitch auto/manual to a button, then (at the risk of sounding like RBJ) put prop pitch on a slider (one of the throttle rotaries.) Works like a champ, and is not completely unrealistic, since prop and throttle controls were usually right next to eachother.
