I mean instead "Prop Pitch: 0-100%" it would be better to display "RPM: 0-100%". It makes the setting more clear.


And shouldn't all Fw-190 have Constant Speed Propellers? Dora doesn't even have a pitch angle gauge, and in NACA description of Kommandogerat, they say that propeller is of constant speed type (not variable pitch type).

Why not for Variable pitch too?
The effect of 'full fine' (100%) is to increase RPM after all. The current setup is crossed.. "increase prop pitch" suggests to me a coarsening of the pitch, whereas in game it means reducing the blade angle of attack.

It has been suggested before, but I'd like the AutoPitch setting to be retained on jumping to Manual pitch until the control is moved by the player, unless on the real A/c the automatics controlled pitch *directly* without moving the pilot's cockpit controls. I never use manual pitch at the moment, so its no show stopper, but...

what I dont get is how come with russian planes 0 trottle and 0 pitch stops you so quick but others like the p40 jugs its so difficult to bleed off speed.

Seems every disadvantage is given to others but airframe overstressing which is a HUGE problem the russian planes had and the la7s flaw which removed the cockpit air vents from the la5 model to reduce drag resulted in the canopy condesation then extremely poor visability and in the winterwar freezing up making extreme poor visabilty from the extreme tempatures but of course neither are modeled.

the la5 and 7 cockpits are so clear while you can harly see out of some of the late 109 windows would you at least reduce the opacity of the grim ground crews did clean them you know.

csp worst thing to come to il2fb making reduced trottle and 0 pitch useless in certain planes the anti gravity glidesloping feel of flight. a 5000-10000 pound plane isnt going to float around like an ultra light I think damage models need the most working on just my opinion
