being new to the game and wanting to keep thing as simple as possible while I master the basics I use automatic mixture and radiator, does operating these manualy add to performance or is it just a "realism" thing. On the subject of radiators I see no engine temperature gauge in my cockpits,how do I know when to open or close the radiator shutters?
radiator and mixture controls

Temp gauges are usually a part of the Mod packs. Open radiator when you see smoke.
If you buy Mods stay clear of the Gus Mod.

On planes with mixture but no radiator, a leaner mixture than the usual optimal for rpm (depends on altitude) will help keep your engine warm. But this is for extreme scenarios.

Yes, it adds to performance. The auto mixture feature is always too off to be useful competitively. Doing a quick test now, the Fokker D8 with auto mixture is from 4 to 5km/h slower, which is a lot.

As usual I find the answers helpful and informative, I appreciate you taking the time to answer what to an experianced flier must seem very basic questions. My thanks to all.
