    Rob, just a big thank you for another excellent airplane. I know the community appreciates all of the hard work. Can't get enough of great British warbirds.

    This is another lovely plane by Rob and it is great to have a Griffon Spit in the sim. Thanks very much Rob. And to Jankees, if he reads this, for uploading the great skins on that other site.

    I have a few modest tweaks for consideration, which I attach. These files contain:

    - A cameras.cfg that adds a VR camera with the eyepoint in the proper position, for VR users.
    - A flight_model.cfg that reverses the torque as appropriate for the left-turning Griffon, and fine tunes a few of the aerodynamics.
    - An engines.cfg that gives somewhat more plausible boost and RPM values and better RPM control, at least at some settings. There are a lot of interacting variables that go into prop pitch control, and I'm still working on this one.

    To try them out, just copy into your Community\Supermarine Spitfire XIX\SimObjects\Airplanes\robertrichardson-aircraft-spitfireXIX and overwrite.

    I also recommend copying the sound folder over from Rob's Seafire 47, it sounds a lot better. Don't forget to refresh your layout.json.
