Newb stylie question here. When flying later 109s with auto-prop pitch there are times when I want to take over manual control but the keys I have assigned for decrease/increase pitch don't work to override it.

Shift-0 doesn't do it either. So what don't I know?

Thanks,
Horse.

prop pitch auto

its a function, map it to a key

if nothing is happening make sure complex engine management is turned on in the settings

Default is Shift+0. Like Ray said. Make sure Engine Management is turned on.

If I recall, you have to hit Shift+0 more than once to get it to switch between 100% and auto control.

Well, that's the weird thing. I always have C.E.M. on and in my controls it says that shift+0 is the default, but when I hit that nothing happens. I'm not able to change the pitch. Maybe I need to "re-assign" it.

Thanks Ray, Buzz and Kitty too.

No, try hitting it more than once, as in two or even three times in succession.
