    -When I advance the throttle I want power, not RPM.


    well what do you think happens when you increase throttle ? the engine will produce more RPM. i dont see what is wrong with that. that is what engines do.

    Think so, too.

    I'm not an engineer, but as I understand it, on 100% it means, that the prop is as flat as possible, thus maximizing rpm. With 0% it should be like driving in 5th gear.

    Dunno which way it is modelled, but to my understanding the prop should have a bigger resistance at 100 under those circumstances, though the rpm should be reduced at 0%.
    But since rpm doesn't equal speed, so it feels wrong IMHO.

    What I'd really like to see (but probably ever won't), is reliability modelled in a sim. Refering to the La's, the weak tail of the a/c and the untreated wooden structure caused a whole squadron to be grounded, that was sent to a more humid area.

    But that is also a fact with the P39, since the M4 Canon was jamming a lot....

    But let's don't turn this into a whiner's-thread [img]/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif[/img]

    yep - i remember putting some in a QMB, because of their light armament i thought they'd be easy meat - but i had a really really hard time downgin them (if i downed them at all!!) - i was in a hurri IIB but even so i had unlimited ammo on - and those suckers just soaked up my bullets to hardly any effect !!

    - Yeah... that's definitely wrong.

    Looks like a case of confusion between AI yak flight model and human flown yak flight model. They're quite different...

    As it should with a constant speed propellor.

    Even at idle with (effecively) no power, the engine ticking over greatly reduces the drag of the propellor disc at low airspeeds and high propellor rpm settings. The difference between engine off/on shouldn't be as great at high speed or at low rpm settings.
