DCS World DCS:P51-D - Power Settings

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

I have gathered some information on flying the P51-D from the game manual, a 1954 manual I downloaded and from a recent article in Flypast magazine where an aviation journalist who got the chance to fly the P51-TC from the back seat. Some of this should become standard operating proceduresA:

P51D Notes:

Power Settings - From Manual Page 127

Name - MAP(inches) - RPM - Max Time(Mins)

Takeoff Maximum - 61" - 3000 - 15

War Emergency - 67" - 3000 - 5

Military Power - 61" - 3000 - 15

Maximum Continuous - 46" - 2700

Maximum Cruise - 42" - 2400

General Cruise - 35" - 2,350

From article in Flypast magazine from an aviation journalist that fly the P51-TD:

Downwind - 24" - 2,500 - 1/2 Flap - 140kt

Checks

Late downwind - 24" - 2,500 - 3/4 Flap - 130kt

Turn abeam threshold

Final turn - as read - 2,500 - Full Flap - 120kt - 5deg right rudder trim

Threshold - 105kt

Touchdown - 100kt

Roll out to end of runway.

Additional from 1954 Manual:

Name - MAP(inches) - RPM - Max Time(Mins) - IAS(MPH)

Max Endurance - As Req'd - 1600 - Continuous - 140mph

Use:

Take-Off = Mil Pwr

Normal Climb = Max Con

Mil Climb = Mil Pwr

Transit to target = Max Con

Combat = Mil Pwr + short bursts of WEP

General Cruise = Max Cruise or less depending on fuel reserve

Descent = To be nominated. Something like: 1600rpm / 10"map / 200mph / ??deg Nose Down /

Loiter / Hold = Max Endur

Glide = 175mph / Clean / Prop Max Decrease = 14.5miles / 5000ft

Minimum Landing Allowance:

MLA = 25gal = 30mins plus at Max Endur
