Why does the F4U not have an auto mixture setting?

120 for take-off and zero level flight, otherwise 100/auto.

Its automatic at 100%. Manual 120% fuel mix...no doubt they did this so that we can have control over extra fuel boost for carrier ops.

SO even thought at 20,000 feet it says 100%, its really on auto and not 100%?

Thanks

I for one wish we had the option for auto or manual on all of the planes... although many of the American planes in particular did indeed have auto mixture and SC... in most of them it was also a manual override....

Yeah, we should have a manual overide on the F4U. Not that I want to do it that way. My reason for the post was that I asumed it was on auto, but never saw any changes. It always indicates 100%. If its gonna be auto, it should indicate the auto changes. Shouldnt it? IN real life you couldnt see any indications when on auto, but in the game, if it aint 100% it dont need to say so...hehehehe
