If you are talking about manual radiator control, there isn't any in mk.IX Spits cuz the things in real life had auto radiator.

I believe they came with auto pitch too, but I'm not a 100% in that.

Haven't tried radiator control in mk.V Spits, though it should still be there cuz those did have that.

Spit IX only had automatic Cowl Armor/Radiator.

Use Shift-0 to select manual Prop pitch http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Only thing I heard about was a button that was used for a test on the Radiator - it never made it into production or something...

Some of the Spit variants had linked throttle/prop pitch control. Maybe some of the new Spit variants have this option.

Your correct Ludi, they do, its visible from the cockpit, the throttle lever and the RPM lever (constant speed prop control) are tied together by default (automatic pitch).
