for me cursing speed is whatever speed i can reach at 50% prop and 55% power radiator closed(some plane i have to lower prop pitch such as the p-39n-1 35%)and i have to say i am really impressed with the P-51's speed at those settings got a cruse speed of over 500kmh! sweethttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif i was wondering if any others have settings they use to cruse? and what are they with what plane?

My passion is to fly, nothing beats it, nothing can compare to it, free as a bird. Bird of prey.

im talking about just crusing around either in route or site seeing i will normally pull power back to 55 to 50% and prop back to 45-50% except with certian AC like the p-40 an 39 i go to 35% on the prop pitch. if i can mess with fule mix that gose down to 80 or 70% depending on how the AC sounds

Using lower throttle settings and lower prop RPM gives you better fuel economy.

Cursing speed? Is that like, how many "bad words" per minute you can say? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
Sorry, it's stupid I know. Couldn't hold myself back.

Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
