horsepower graphs

I'm not sure where you are getting those numbers. They are wrong.--blastedryan (talk) 01:17, 8 November 2019 (UTC)

The expected values for the F-82e's WEP horsepower for 1 engine based on the code are
Alt WEP HP
0 m 1955
1000 m 1955
6095 m 1700
9143 m 1329
with a straight line connecting the points. So your graph is shaped correctly aside from the beginning values. Judging by my rough eyeballing of of your horsepower values your numbers are a bit off. Could you show me your raw data? Also please do not test in the test flight map many people have claimed it is inaccurate.--blastedryan (talk) 02:45, 9 November 2019 (UTC)
The 1955 might look odd then you'll be even more surprising that the 100% hp of the F-82 is 1600hp from 0 m all the way to 6095m. Feel free to test it.
I'm not sure what would be the best map but I see there is a variance in atmospheric pressure between maps. Perhaps a map with as close to 1 atm at sea level would be optimal? I think some of the deviation from the expected values might also be from the speed of the plane. I tested the plane at ~300km/h and 1000m and got ~1800hp while going at ~640km/h got ~1930hp. I know jets exhibit this behavior but I've never seen it documented for prop planes as well.--blastedryan (talk) 05:21, 9 November 2019 (UTC)
If it does follow the same behavior as jets then it should have a U shaped curve where you get the maximum horsepower at 0 speed. Why it works that way, I don't know.--blastedryan (talk) 01:56, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
