Just back from Virtualpilots. I was trying to land in my P40M, but I can't to slow down in any way! Throttle 0% and I was rather accelerating then slowing down, prop pitch 0 wass better but still I can get to landing speed, It was really getting ridiculous, the same plane that's losing energy fast in combat maneuvres was refusing to slow down, I was mad, almost no fuel, gear down, flaps landing (jammed of course!).Finally with very long approach prop pitch 0, throttle 0, I was able to touch down at no less then 220 km/h, and after long crazy ride crashed as expected...

Altitude, speed, manoeuvre and.... CRASH!

was your motor hit by bullets at all ?

throttle control is one thing among others that can be lost thru bullet strikes

making your motor stay on full power

Besides, switching to "prop pitch 0%" does the opposite effect to what You want get. Real pilots set throttle to 0% and RPM to MAX in order to force propeller to windmill ("braking with propeller"). You did the opposite thing!After setting RPM to low, prop governor coarses the pitch, the prop does less drag and plane doesn't want to slow down http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif If you don't believe me, make a test: take a stop-watch, speed up your plane to a specific value, and cut the throttle, measuring time when plane slows down for example 100kph, once with "100% pitch" and then with "0% pitch". You will notice that 100% slows you down little more, although this effect seems to be undermodelled, in comparison to other sims (CFS2 with "1%" FMs, Target Rabaul)
P.S. - anyway, I understand You, brother http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I seem to loose to much speed when I need one (during fight), but have tons of it when I don't want it (on final approach) http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Badsight, you are probably right on, I had collection of holes all over http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.
Art J I know what you mean, I was just nervous and trying anything I could http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I had this happen a few times, the throttle stopped responding so I just shut the engine off, then started it again and worked again. Of course it also depends on how damaged you engine is if it will restart. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

just turn the engine off, if your engines overheated and wont turn off turn the magnetos off.

they put the csp which 0 pitch and 0 trottle still dont slow you down, everyone just turns off magnetos or engines and does a long glide slope with engine off to land and stop quickly.

Not just you...I run into the same problem with the 109...

I know some is me, but I find I'm at basically no throttle way out and still can't stop the thing on the runway...even with gear down, landing flaps, and an approach that is below 350 metres miles out...
