Hi,

Overheat time of the B-239 seems now to be same regardless whether radiotor is full open or closed (mixture 100%, prop.pitch 100%). The actual time depends on a map used (5.5-7.5 min). Is the radiator broken or is it just me?

Previous test was done around sea level.
I made another test on Smolensk map, alt. 1500 m, throttle at 110%. Overheat time was around 20 minutes with both radiator closed and open. Using radiator didn't seem to have any effect.

About gauges:
Flap indicator is reversed. Flaps are raised at 'Down' position and down in 'Up' position (in Finnish).

Air speed gauge has values as high as 800, but speed is incorrectly shown as mph. It could be easily changed to show km/h as it should be afaik.
