How do you feather the propeller and use the fire extinguisher? I play mostly single player. I have keys set for both of them. When I shot, and my engine catches on fire, I hit the fire extinguisher, but nothing happens! The same thing goes for the feathering the prop. Are those two things limited to only a few aircraft? If so, which ones? Thanks

TB3 is the only aircraft in the game that has a fire extinguisher. Feather prop only really applies to multi engine aircraft (I think)

I got both working only in P-38 so far, both variants.

I don't think all single engines fighters in WW2 had the fire extinguishers installed, only some of them, dunno which ones though, neither in RL nor in FB.

As I said, they only work for me in the P-38.

To my knowledge, the prop can be feathered only in twin-engined aircraft in IL2-FB-AEP
They're the Bf.110, the P-38 and the He.111. The big TB1 has fixed pitch props on its 4 engines.
To feather prop, you have to UNselect the engine whose prop you do NOT want to feather; then, hit the prop feather key. The prop of the engine that is left selected will be feathered. Then unselect this engine and select the other engine to keep flying with 1 engine.

Fire estinguisher? I've never been able to make it work, or to have any sign it's working! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

True, I forgot I got extinguishers and feather prop working in BF-110 once in an online game, never used the BF-110 offline so far.

Try fire extinguisher on G.50 too.
