now this is no whining, more some sort of question...
How come german planes on manual prop pitch will over rev. in a dive when russian planes that only have manual prop pitch can be flown with 100% prop pitch in a dive without over reving?!? shouldnt they have to decrease the prop pitch as well?! I guess most of us know what happens when u dive in a 109 with man. prop pitch... it takes a few secs and the u have blown the engine... Now is there some diffrense between german manual prop pitch and the russian one?! if it is correct as it is then thats fine! can anyone explain this to me? cheers

I believe the manual prop pitch in the Russian, Japanes and American planes only worked as an RPM governor. In the german planes it ...did something different http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif (changed the actual prop pitch?)

I have said it before and i'll say it again. Most alied planes were not manual. They were CPS)Constant Speed Propeller)

You set your desired RPM and the propeller governor will attempt to maintain the set RPM.


Some german planes used Manual and automatic systems.
