Since I'm not sure wether I'll be able to make it for Hurri and 109 soon

Basics are the same, however for Hurri, you have control over the flaps position, neutral for neutral, up for rise, down for lower, and an indicator for actual position.
You may use up to position 28 for take off, fully down for landing.

For 109 on the ground remember to open also the oil cooler. This is a yellow handle on cockpit side. Also set the pitch to fully fine.
Don't over rev your propeller. Some 109 have automatic pitch control, not all. If they do, it's needed to manually adjust to fine before take off.

Thanks for your posts, I'd like to prepare a small check list and important things to have with you for flying.

Pretty sure carb icing is modelled (for Spits at least). When flying through a cloud sometimes, and my canopy freezes over, the Merlin starts to splutter and lose power! As the canopy defrosts the Merlin starts to run smoothly again! Haven't noticed it for a while now - because I fly around, under or over the damned things!

Regarding a damaged engine

On several occation I have found my self in a battle damaged british aircraft over Calais and every time I tried to help it by lowering the strain on it, it seems to have shorted its life. Every time I just keept my fingers from the throttle and pitch I have been able to return to the mainland (England )
Coincidence!? Don't know!
But I have recommended other EAF pilots from touching THR and Pitch if there where ever any doubt of killing the engine.

With the final patch, you can sort this to:

1. Fuel cock
2. Press I
3. Wait for right temp
4. Set radiator to full
6. Slam throttle

No need move throttle.
