Hi!

Does anyone know how you can avoid damaging your engine while flying in a dogfight?

It's a very nice engine but it seems like it's breaking easily after 5' of full dogfight.

Any suggestions on how to handle it?

P.S. I think same happens to G10 & G14 but not so sure.

The few times I've flown them in DF I set throttle to 95% and keep an eye on the engine rpm (prop pitch). Never had an engine problem that way (other than those induced by the engine ingesting too much high velocity lead that is /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif )

If going with 95% yes I agree, but I'm talking about 100-110% as you can't fight with lower throttle when engaging a Yak3 or La.
That is my problem...

Remember that if you have CEM set to "on" then you should only engage or disengage MW50 boost at less than 50% throttle (of course, you can go above this once you've switched it on or off). If you engage/disengage MW50 above 50% throttle it damages the engine.
