what is throttle, mixture, prop pitch for? When I fly I only use power and adjust the flaps..

am I missing out on something? I'm flying fighters like bf and spitfire mostly btw.

Throttle is the same as power.

Mixture and Prop pitch are only an issue if you are flying with Complex Engine Management. Are you flying with this option enabled?

For the Spitfire and 109, for less experienced players, it is probably best if you don't worry about Pitch and Mixture, since you can fly without too many penalties leaving them in auto. Instead, at this stage of your learning process, focus on learning how to make coordinated turns, keeping your aircraft trimmed, and learning good gunnery skills.

Are you flying online?

Thank you for answering.

I've played the game pretty arcade like for a long time, since like 2004-5, but only recently have i really tried to really get into the controls section.

I started playing online some month ago, and on the servers they sometimes have complex engine management turned on, to answer your question.
I'm half decent att flying and shooting i reckon, so I would gladly learn more about mixture and prop pitch..

I also downloaded the excel document "IL-2 functions" recently to get to know which funtions certain planes have. Really interesting.

I'd gladly join in. One flight session every week I read? just tell me when. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif do you fly via hyperlobby?

I've never really been into flying and aircraft before, but this game really makes it interesting i think. Maybe one day I'll even learn how to bomb using the bombsight properly http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
