Today I flew over the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands and took this picture.

 

Maybe I need a better phone, picture was taken with a Samsung S7

Distortion from high speed rotation.

Try cutting your engine off, let your prop stop spinning then take the picture.

Then restart the engine with the WOWP pneumatic restarter.

...does turning off the engine counts as damaged? :unsure:

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

No. It only turns the plane into a GLIDING BRICK with ( depending on the plane type/ speed ) 15:1 glide path.

You don't need it anyway, it's only there to keep the pilot cool anyway. If you don't believe me, turn it off and watch the pilot start to sweat.

I was going to ask what graphics settings do you play on to get 15fps?

No kidding, that picture looks like a screenshot of WOWP on low graphics.

You know what? I wished I could turn off the props for screenshotting...it never works...outside of graphical glitch that make props disappear...

When your engine is damaged doesn't the prop spin slow or stop at all, maybe then take a screenshot, after that restart and kill some more ?

The props do spin slower...but the engine flames and smokes are in the way. :unsure:

 

...and engine damage is such a serendipity on a photoshooting trip.
