Or are they working on final polish of what they have? (Er, I think that's UP) Mods feel free to mod away on this one, I have no idea where it belongs.

Anyway, one of my pet bugs is the propeller pitch control in the F4F. Note that at high speed (fine pitch), it's all the way back, while at low RPM (coarse pitch), it's further in. To have it all the way in is to effectively feather the prop.

This, sirs and mam or two, is backwards.

Please note pitch control (http://books.google.com/books?id=lMZfLqGNm7MC&pg=PA5&lpg=PA5&dq=F4F+Wildcat+propeller+pitch+control&source=bl&ots=UAiskbpAWx&sig=oAT2oJMusgE6BPcPM5YVZfiHa2U&hl=en&ei=1vV7TvK-J82y8QOc58TjCQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&sqi=2&ved=0CB0Q6AEwAA#v=onepage&q&f=false) in the Pilots Operating Manual. I've yet to run into a US aircraft where full forward on the control wasn't a highest speed setting, though I must say, I don't count the P-fifty-what. (Apparently mixture full rich was full aft control next to the throttle which was full forward for open? Confusing!)

Before I totally digress, I'll throw in one more gotcha about the F4F. Note the shape of the handle in the sim that controls prop pitch. What's the shape the handle in the handbook? And what control IS shaped like the one in the sim? Hmmmmm... Great sim, always will be. Could've been greater with a bit more attention to the nits to pick. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

One more note. Why is this such a big deal for me? What caused me to notice it in the first place? Why the clock, of course. How the heck are you supposed to dead recon with your view of the silly clock blocked by a control that's doing what it's supposed to do, but isn't where it's supposed to be while doing it??? Grumble... (Yes, this was pre-track IR things)

If it won't make it into 4.11, it should make it into 4.12. It may be best to contact one of the members specifically. They are active on the Il-2 1C forums.
