What is your guys' usual cruize speed in any 190? I've flown the G2 at altitude and it seems to have a much higher cruize speed than the 190. Partially this is because I forget to change PP to keep going faster. So I ask you guys, strait and level flight, at 2km to 5km, how fast do you fly?

D9 '44 I fly 90% throttle in level cruising flight, but to be honest I don't notice the speed, guessing around 350-380kph.

Ta152 I fly 50% throttle in level cruising, typical cruise speed is 260-290kph.


Most of the time I am at 260-280kph when flying the 190/Ta152 though, because unless I am engaging a target I am climbing. I find it easier to dive down and take a look at a bogey than to climb up to it, so I tend to climb as a default habit.

Ya, I know for sure though that I never fly at the high speeds the 190 is supposed to be able to in level flight. I'm turning or climbing or diving, but never level. I'll have to test that tonight, see what I've been missing out on.

It's harder for all planes to achieve their maximum speeds now, not because they are wrong but because everyone's acceleration is lower than it used to be and it just takes longer to reach top end.

Thats one of the reasons I can't really say what the level speeds are of the 190's, its extremely rare to fly straight long enough to see what it is http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

On climbout I'm at 260-270kph, hold ~10m/s, rads set at position 2, 100% prop pitch.

I typically cruise at 75% throttle, ATA dependes on altitude of course. I like to cruise above 450kph so I may have to run up the throttle and then ease it back a little. I trim for level flight at altitude.

Well, normal cruise is about 300kph, but I fly flat out pretty much all the time unless heat or fuel is a problem...

Useually I cruise at 80% throttle. Keeps things nice and cool, and I get going at a decent clip.

I don't have a set rule or a specific set up for crusing.

But iirc, at 5000 meters, with radiator closed, prop pitch at 80%, throttle at 90% and starting with 50% fuel, the cruising air speed is about 450 kph.

My impressions of the last two months revolve around dawns. Pink dawns, grey dawns, misty, rainy and windy dawns, but always dawns; first light. Shadowy Spitfires and quietness . . . . Geoffrey Wellum, First Light.
