As far as I can tell ALL engine management systems on the FW are automated EXCEPT radiator position. Is this correct? So if I select CEM and fly the FW the only thing I need worry about is radiator position. Prop pitch, supercharger and fuel mixture STILL work automatically, although I can make manual adjustments if I choose?

You're right.

However; remember to learn the differing boost systems for the differing marques. Some boost systems will ruin your engine in double quick time if used injudiciously.

That would be for the MW50 boosted Fw 190D-9 '45 and Ta 152. MW50 must be armed below 100% throttle. Otherwise the engine will be destroyed.

The Antons and Fw 190D-9 '44 uses C3 injection(Erh├┬Ârte Notleistung), which can be switched on and off at any powersetting.

No need to work the radiator on the Fw 190D-9 and Ta 152, it's automated. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Wow, automated radiators too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. With the choice of aircraft available I find CEM very confusing. Is there a site that gives detailed explanations of the systems used on various aircraft and how these systems affect performance?

I cannot believe I missplaced the Anton Proppitch vs. acceleration graph

I'm such a puts

basics of it were

80% below about 500KPH, then 100% pitch after.

No. You can adjust radiator and prop pitch settings only, you cannot fiddle with supercharger and mixture.

On all Anton versions of Fw190 you can squeeze considerable more power out of BMW801 if you use 100% manual prop pitch. Biggest difference being notable in climb. When you engage it, you will hear difference in RPM immediately. However, you will overheat faster, and you have to be very careful during high speed dives, as you can overrev and ruin engine.

With D9_early you have to be even more careful, I usualy avoid using prop pitch on Doras, as you can ruin your engine at high speed level flight.

D9_late or Ta152 are a nightmare if you are using MW50 and manual prop pitch at the same time.

Thanks for the help guys. @ AustinPowers & tigertalon, yeah its the prop pitch thing I'm most interested in. I cant help thinking I'm losing out by leaving it on auto, but I've obviously got a lot of practicing to do. I'll give the 80/100% range a try on the Antons and see how it goes. Thanks again.
