in fb why does some of the russian planes not slow down to idle in single missions?this makes landings disasterous!!

Sounds like your prop pitch is set to AUTO. If you switch it to manual, you can reduce the pitch to ZERO and the engine will then slow down.

Check your in game CONTROL settings to see what keys are set for changing your pitch settings.

If that doesn't work, I'm out of ideas.

U can also leave it on auto and throttle down and do some hard turns with flaps (u bleed speed faster). U have to watch behind u anyway before landing, especially online. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

well, there are very few planes in FB where you can swithc from automatic to a manual mode in propeller setting. these are the Bf109s, Fw190s, Spitfire MkIXs.

the most are always on manual where you are controlling the RPM of the engine with the "propeller setting" , because they have a Constant speed propeller.
the planes in FB are in general loosing speed not very fast. that realy making landings sometimes annoying. reducing not only the power (throttle) , also the RPM helps a little bit.

Because Russian planes never lose "E". http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

But on approach, just make a few hard turns, that should make your plane slow down.
Or do you mean you cant set the throttle to 0 ??

The engine doesn't slow down because the aircraft are fitted with Constant Speed Propellors. The "Prop pitch" control in these aicraft doesn't directly control pitch, but rather it controls the propellor RPM governor. Once you've set a desired engine/propellor speed the governor will adjust propellor pitch as conditions vary to try and maintain that rpm.

If you add power, the governor will increase the prop pitch to stop rpm from rising, and vice versa if you reduce power. Remember that though rpm doesn't vary (except at very low speeds and power settings that exceed the governor's range of control), the effects of increasing or reducing throttle still apply. If you cut power you will slow down (or at least not accelerate as fast when in a dive http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif).

Aircraft that are very aerodynamic are hard to slow down regardless of what the prop is doing, you need to develop other strategies for speed control. A good one for landings is to make a tight circuit over the field before attempting the landing. For an example, download and run these tracks (http://members.optusnet.com.au/tully_78th/p47s.zip). One is a standard military overhead pattern, the other is a "hot approach" http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

Thats the first,

Russion planes using manual prop pitch on a CPS system.
