why does manual pitch and mixture not work in the fw 190's? i can get it to work in other planes, but it just won't work in the 190.

I think there is a key you need to disengage the auto control.

Another question however, why are you trying to manually control the 190? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

Best performance is supposed to come from auto control (in the 190 - anything else is unrealistic (aka, CFS lol)).

I don't know what key it is.

can't i make the engine run more powerful with manual control?

wouldn't 80% prop pitch be better during flight?

The whole point of the Komandogeraet is to provide maximum performance in addition to simplifiying control of the aircraft.

Simply put, it provided the best performance IRL. As such, if you try to run it higher, you will just blow it up, or, wind up on the other side of the peak. Remember, engines peak in their power output lower than their maximum attainable revs. (all recip. engines)

Prop pitch on what kind of prop? I think this is getting to the heart of the matter.

German props were variable pitch, US and soviet props were constant speed. They are completely different in operation, and yet we have the same "%" scale for each. It can cause confusion.

What you need to do is govern (or limit) engine revs via a combination of manifold pressure (throttle) and prop pitch (along with blower setting and fuel mixture).

Lugging the engine with too coarse a pitch does no good. Over speeding the engine with too fine a pitch damages it too.

In a CSP, you "dial in" an engine RPM and the prop is auto governed in all flight regiems (within the range of the pitch stops). In the game, 100% on a CSP equals maximum output.

On a variable pitch prop (German), 100% is full fine, and will blow the engine.

But, like I was saying, "80%" doesn't mean anything by itself, and the best pitch setting is determined by alt, speed, and what vertical direction you are flying.

Picking a setting in a German plane and leaving it there will not help you.

Watch the pitch clock as you fly around, it's constantly moving.
