Hello -

For the longest time, I've been attempting to fly the mudmover 'experten' campaign. I typically die before the 30th mission so I've ended up re-flying the first 30 missions a dozen or so times. Anyway, the plane that I have to use is the Bf109 E model. I really grew to like the plane and with a lot of practice, I got really good at managing the engine. I got to the point where I never blew an engine. Now in the post 1.11 environment, I'm having problems. With the switch to automatic prop pitch, it seems the plane is flying like a dog. Switching to manual prop pitch does give me a considerable boost in performance but I fry the engine every time. I mean, one second of running at 27,000 will sieze it up. I was wondering what advice to you guys have for flying this plane? Do you simple leave it on automatic settings and modify other aspects of your flying to compsenate for the reduced performance? thanks stubby

Most of us just leave it on manual pitch.. and you cannot go over 2500 on the rpm or it will burn up.

I use manual to get my initial climb height. Or when in a need to get away. As mentioned, 2500 rpm's is sufficient for this task.

Otherwise, I run it lower rpm's to safe fuel and the engine.


Great aircraft by the way!

Thanks pilots!

For one, I was off with the safe rpm ceiling. 25,000 seems to be the top off number, not 27,000. That helped big time and probably explains why the ground crew has been very p!ssed off at me! I guess I have to retrain myself but I may end up staying with automatic except for taking off with a bomb load or running for my life.
