Throttle settings vs engine sound

Recommended Posts

Fantastic plane, many thanks!

X-Plane 10 64 bit, is it normal that in flight (not during ground operation curiously) moving the throttle lever works for aircraft operation, but has no influence on engine sounds? Just wondering if that was just my installation?

In the case of turboprops the prop probably is spinning at the same RPM all the time. Once you slow down considerably the prop will eventually decrease in RPM at lower power settings.

If you listen carefully you can in fact hear the actual engine itself change power.

 

So, what aircraft were you flying? Does this happen for all aircraft?

Thanks, I'm (Javier's) T34C Mentor. Recent models do have turboprops I think, and I did notice the whining of the turbo change slightly when throttling down. I could however throttle down completely with the aircraft sinking like a stone without a change in the "main" engine sound. When I change RPM using the lever, the sound changes. I throttle down completely, cut the mixture, turn of ignition and avionics power (and consequently crash) with the engine sound (and propeller animation) continue essentially unchanged. Other planes don't do this on my installation.

 

As I said, I'm having a lot of fun with this version of the plane, just wondering if this behaviour is particular to the model or whether I have an incorrect setting or incompatible whatnot.

The aircraft utilizes X-Plane's default sound "engine", so any problems you'd have would result from X-Plane (if there even is a problem).

For the record, I'm using X-Plane 10.45b2 (64-Bit) with the newest T34C install (BCHMNTR 1.11).

I simply assume it's got to do with my setup somehow, thanks guys.

Edit: Rereading my earlier posts, it could have come across that my comments "fantastic plane" etc were meant as irony in light of this issue I'm having, but I do really mean that it's a great add-on : )
