Thread: P51 Mustang over 30.000ft (not kidding)

  1. Default P51 Mustang over 30.000ft (not kidding)

    I were testing perfomance in my FS, and i turned on the display flying tips, to the test i used the p51 cuz propelled aircraft looks cool
    and then the following tip shows up: your fuel mixture is set incorrectly press CTRL+X to set it correctly, i pressed and i looked at my mixture % to see if it really works and it did, then i said to myself, lets try to get this baby high, really high
    I already knew you can go higher by adjusting mixture but when i was noob i did not know what fuel mixture was for so i could only get the p51 to 5000ft without engine damage (unrealistic) I did some research about all type of plane engine, and then i found what was mixture for, let me explain: as you get up, less atmospheric air around you so lets say at 500ft you have 1.2atm and 1.2 fuel flow
    as you get up atmospheric air so you need to keep it the same for example 10.000ft has 0.8, then you need to put 0.8 fuel flow this is for the prop engine, the jet engines is automatic so here is a pic and a short clip https://imgur.com/a/5iIHTkm

    the results? you ask, well i reached about 37200ft because engine shutdown because of low manifold pressure, in the pic is a few seconds after engine shutdown

    if you want to do the same here is some tips:

    set elevator trim up as you go slower to reduce drag and get more speed,

    use time speed up because this take some time

    be ready for a lot of turbelence and strong winds come for many directions

    Which P51?

    The one in the sim is a specialist racing aircraft designed for low-level pylon racing and is missing the two-stage supercharger fitted to fighter-type aircraft.
    Use at high altitude probably requires using ADI Water Injection, to enable the manifold pressure to be retained but it depends on the reality level, which you haven't told us about.

    Use of the Learning Center in the sim is not to be missed with this aircraft as it's non-standard in many ways!

    i do play on hard realism settings , i used ADI when i was needing extra power at 35000feet and iused a bit earlier aircraft default p51 racer

    Try the A2A P-51. It's the most realistic, and I've had it to 48,000 feet. Service ceiling is around 42,000, so that last 6,000 takes a while.

    The A2A P51 is far more realistic than just about any other P51 and successfully models the two-stage supercharger. Instructions for operation are in the very comprehensive manual.

    Reading the A2A manuals should not be regarded as optional...

    WOW the default p51 racer may not reach that much because well, its for races but very cool
