Has anyone else noticed the continuity error for the il-10 icon? It shows a 3 blade prop, where the plane has 4. :popcorn:

that is because one of the blades is already spinning.

See on a plane each blade has to be started separately and spun up to full speed before starting the 2nd 3rd and 4th blades.

Thus keeping the spinning blades perfectly balanced so the plane doesn't wobble

The four bladed prop comes with the last engine if I am not mistaken.
