Hi. I have been playing IL-2 for about three or so months now, gradually increasing difficulty to RL with open pit and im am just wondering, wat is the best set up for trim and prop pitch. I have trim for arrow keys, all respective buttons(up, pitch up, etc) and i have prop pitch as the = and - buttons. I just want to know, do you keep the RPM in the "best zone". ie. some planes have a coloured line at the 30 000 RPM. Any help plz, trying to get ready to play online.thx

Alos, i have a FFB joystick and i am wondering how do you activate it in IL-2. Thx

In game, goto Harware Setup, Input screen, switch on 'Force Feedback'...

WOW!! that is some amazing engine... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
I think you mean 3000rpm.
Trim is different at every speed - You trim a plane so it can fly level without any input from yourself.
Prop-Pitch - for cruising it's usually around 50-60%, and anywhere up to 100% in combat.
Engine revs should usually be kept around a combat maximum of 2400-2500rpm on most planes, but a lower throttle setting (~50%) for cruising.
