Flap & prop pitch braking effect overdone?
2 Attachment(s)
I try to fly circuits by the book. Setting fine pitch before turning on final, full flaps on final, maintaining 160 kph. To do this, I need to apply a lot of power. a LOT. Then I watched this go pro video, and the guy floats in at idle, occasionally applying bursts of power, bringing the RPM up to 70% for a second. Mine is near 100% all the time, no matter how steep I come in. This is very strange. Can anyone with real life experience comment?

Nobody finds this strange?

AcroGimp already mentioned that the flap drag is way too high.
The no flap approach speed is 170km/h and the difference between an idle glide angle with the prop fully forward and fully back looks ok to me.

Yeah, the prop effect seems alright after 30+ approaches. But that flap drag....when I lower them I need to open the throttle, almost like in a MIG-21...hope it will be fixed soon.

Getting used to the flap pitch 'issue' since it's easily manageable and the pitch effect might need only to be reduced a bit.

But the flap drag is no-go. You can't even follow the real procedure, since this instructs you to climb at 160km/h with the flaps extended!

Flap drag is WAY off but I believe they are working it along with other things.

On a couple of occasions where I've left the flaps down during a touch and go irl you certainly know you've left them down :)

Looks like the flap drag hasn't been addressed yet...

One way to address the current flap drag issue appears to be moving prop full forward (fine) at around the same time you deploy the flaps, this is early compared to how I fly the Yak IRL but the way DCS models prop drag/vs thrust appears to favor the fine pitch.

This is NOT how I fly IRL but may be a workaround for now.

I just don't use the flaps at all, tbh, they're not really necessary. Land quite safely without them.
