I use AEP 2.04 and found out that airplanes FW 190 A6, P51 D, Yak 9U and La7 44 accelerate faster in dive with their engines set to idle instead of full throttle.

Ive made theese tests at QMB Smolensk map from 10.000 m and dived directly towards ground as accurate as I could. After 35 seconds the airframe broke down with engines on compared to 30 seconds with it set to idle.
The only difference was that the initial speed was 30-50 km/h higher with engine set to idle.
The collapsespeed was the same.
Why this most uniteresting test?
I thought that the planes, most the P51 got a very long glidesloope with the engine turned of.

gliding is one thing, vertical dive is a completely different problem. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif
