    Question Can you detect a constant speed prop?

    I'm working on a glass EMS system, and would like to display manifold pressure but ONLY for those aircraft that have constant speed props. But I couldn't find an A: variable for that in the variables list. I do note that the aircraft.cfg file does have a propeller type setting, but I can't find that in the A:variables either. Thanks.

    There is no such variable unfortunately.
