First off let me say, great sim !!!! I have always dreamed of owning a Pitts Special and until I hit the lottery, this is going to be the closest I get to having one The virtual cockpit, interior and exterior textures, dynamic shadows, all make it feel like I am sitting in the real thing.
Having never flown a constant speed prop aircraft in real life though, I do have a question on the behavior of the prop rpm with various throttle settings. I hate to compare this sim to either FSX or X-Plane, but in those when the throttle is reduced to lower m.p. settings, the prop rpm shows an almost instantaneous reduction as well. What I am seeing in Aerofly though is that even pulling the throttle back to idle, it takes some time before the prop rpm decreases, almost as if the airspeed is keeping the rpm's high. Even in a vertical dive after a hammerhead, the engine noise/prop rpm increases as the airspeed does, even though I'm leaving the throttle at idle. It seems strange to be in the traffic pattern at 15 in. manifold pressure and to hear the engine sounding like it's at full throttle and see the rpm still at 2700.
Is there any way to adjust this?
Looking forward to seeing what this sim does in the future!
