Hello everyone. I just started playing online, and I am having a hard time with the engine management. All servers have it on, and next thing you know they guy on my six, is catching up to me with the same aircraft!! Can anybody give me a small crash course on prop pitch settings and mixtures (when and where).

It is really a complex subject, and has been explained many times. However I realize the forum search is less than stellar, so here are some good links for reading up on. For best results, ask specific questions about specific aircraft; there is just to much information to explain for the whole sim (150+ aircraft, 6+ prop systems).
