Bf 109 Propeller System Demystified

Postby RAF_Grit » Sun Aug 27, 2017 5:50 pm

Just found this awesome explanation of how the propeller pitch selection mechanism works in the Bf 109:

It's a system so confusing and complex British intelligence reports analyzing captured aircraft couldn't figure out the purpose of the propeller pitch gauge, which is unmarked, and concluded it was "an extraneous extravagance." Great illustration of ignorance: That which we don't understand is unimportant. :lol:

This is useful data if you want to fly the Messerschmitt to full effect. I highly recommend. :salute:
