Default Blenheim in new release

I'm not complaining, especially since I fly the red side, but it seems the Blenheim does not suffer from overheating.

I put everything on max: props fine, boost on, 110% of power, and I can fly so long..

How long the historic Blenheim stand without overheating?

No overheating until rads down below 50% (I flew for more than 20 minutes until failure when put rads at 40%).

My RPMs in tests was about 1850. Altitude 8000 fts.

Mixture rich or poor also dont affect the plane....

Take a look on google images. Never seen a photo of a Blenheim in flight with the cowl flaps noticeably open! Even in Africa.

I'll ask my Grandad about it when I next see him. He was a Fitter for 14 squadron and would have had to repair the damage due to pilots flying around with closed cowl flaps if it was indeed an issue!

I read, and recommended limits seem below what I could do:

The highest is 30 min for 2750 rpm and +9psi

And the maximum temp recommended is 235, but I flew above the margin

But my sources or interpretation maybe are wrong why am I asked
