just reduce mix to stop smoking, at 6000m 60% should be fine

If its anything like the La-7, once you see the dark smoke comming out of the exhaust (you may need externals), reduce your mixture until it stops, you'll notice the increase in power when its correct.

Also, it's fun when one of the Luffties taks a shot at you and you increase your mixture and the smokes starts up again. On teamspeak it a blast to hear them yell out "I've hit him! He's smoking!" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

20,000 ft = 60% mix and 90% prop-pitch for cruise. Increase prop-pitch back to 100% for more 'bite' if you get engaged.
