some of the planes....like two from the topic, overheating rather quickly compared to other planes...i would like to see those documents showing the differencies in overheating for all planes http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif I think overheating timing in this sim is a matter of imagination and guessing

sry for my poor english but i think u understud what i wanted to say.....cheers

its called cowling design. some planes like the zero you pretty much have to fly full open to keep the engine cool during combat.

with the F4U just climb with the cowl open at 90%. You cant go the 110% WEP for you your whole flight. Dont over rev. I keep prop pitch at 95% until see a bandit. But overheating it has mostly to do with WEP. Some use water/meth -some use nitrous. some use super high compressor speeds, some use all three. but it would be very helpful to have a temp gauge on the no cockpit view..

Do ya all remember the exploding P-40 in FB 1.0? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Now, that was the aircraft with the worst overrev problem ever!!

Aircraft nowadays don't overheat as much as the P-40 did back then http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The F4U and the F6F both overheat quickly. So you need to do this:
1) Before starting the engine open full or almost full rads
2) Keep rads full open during climb
3) Keep rads half open during cruise
4) Close during combat for as long as necessary then open again (try and do it before the overheat)

Once you do these things...its really nothing at all.

ive revved many REAL engines at full revs for a while. Bikes, and cars, and losing licences, tends to give me an idea of this http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

let me just say they heat up, darned quick.

unless you have huge, huge radiators.

and oil coolers.

im happy with such high horsepower, high output hi everything engines.

run your own car at full revs and see if it even survives http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

i think, only because i cant test and prove, that the engines are actually tougher than real, IMO.
