Can't start engine #2 v1.6


Recommended Posts

I think thats what I used to do, move the levers into position, than click the mouse to pop them in and start before lever jitters popped them out, or there could be some logic that once the levers are poped in you cant move them till engine start, but thats another problem waitng to happen.and more complication. Honestly easier to fly without them

I created a short video to show what I am experiencing.
(Note in video: Disregard the Power Levers at FLT IDLE vs. GND IDLE... does not seem to have an impact but forgot to put it back when I started recording the video)

Conclusions:

  1. Prop 2 Condition Lever does not appear to engage the Detent like CL1
  2. If you manually move CL2 with mouse it works fine as long as Hardware Prop Lever is not in the start position.
  3. Issue is with Hardware Lever at start detent.  Not sure if there are jitters causing the issue or not.

On a separate topic: Also noticed that after the initial power up/start, if you shut down the engines and power down the aircraft the "BLEED OFF" Lights do not illuminate when you power up and restart the sequence.  Not sure if that is a bug or normal ops.

Thanks for the support,
Kevin

Yes. But i have to unsign the CH- Throttle for the Conditions-Lever...

You don't need to unassign.  Just leave CL2 in the OFF position and use your mouse to set CL2 in the Start Detent.  Once started you can use your throttle lever like normal.  Works for me at least with the Saitek Throttle.  Check out my video above.

For me, i leave my physical prop levers at bottom. Use mouse to move levers into start position, Once engines have started I move the physical levers levers. It may well be a good idea to set a null at beginning of lever slope so they dont jitter doesnt need much.

Hello. I know it is not very helpful to simply say, "Me too", but I have a similar problem. My setup is pretty basic, so I use a mouse to start and therefore to set the CLs. I have not managed to get the right hand engine to start, but I am still experimenting. Funnily, I went through the procedure; started the L/H engine fine, but then forgot to set the CL for the R/H engine before starting. This caused the right fuel pump to turn off and a warning light to appear in the overhead panel. I have not managed to re-start the R/H fuel pump since. Maybe you could tell me how to do that. Also, perhaps this is why others are having problems.

Any help much appreciated.

Brian

I tryed just now, and oh wonder... Placed the Levers fully back, moved the Lever with the mouse to the Start position, and the Engine started... fantastic!
