I have several questions regarding the Griffon Spitfire.

Would the variable pitch propellor operate without engine power. If the prop pitch lever was moved would the prop pitch change or is this reliant on engine (oil) pressure.

Would the Super Charger Boost test switch actually do anything with the engine off.

Why is it correct proceedure to start a Griffon Engine Spitfire with the mixture control set to fully aft. Surely fully aft would mean no fuel.

Thanks.

You must have a different copy of PF than the rest of us.

Must be playing around with one of those CFS2/MFS Griffin Spits.

Actually I'm flying the Real Air Spitfire which is very nice.

You might like to check out my previous post titled Spitfire Movies.

Wouldn't you be better posting on a MSFS/CFS board, then, since many here aren't overly impressed with Microsoft's offering?

Not intended as a putdown, Munnst; just a statement of fact. I have no idea how the Griffon Spitfire has been modelled, nor can I comment on its acccuracy.

My question relates to the real world Griffon Spit not the Real Air one in this instance.
What I am curious about is the correct start proceedure for a real Spitfire.

Don't know. But if you e-mail Hendon (I happen to know that they're open to bribes in the form of donations), they will e-mail or send you a photocopy of the Owners Handbook. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Should have the info you want there. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
