NOTES

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 









 

Power Settings




Depressing the R1 button increases engine power in a linear manner up to 100% and beyond (for jet engines equipped with afterburner - power is then referred to 100+%)

   

Afterburner (AFB)

   


The afterburner is not a linear setting.  When lit up, it represent a ...% thrust increase (according to engine)

   


Having reached 100% power, a delay of 1 second occurs prior lighting up the AFB

   

-

   








Depressing ghe L1 button decreases engine power in a linear manner down to idle (1%)

   

-

   







A "click" on either the L1 or the R1 button is equivalent to an increment of 1% of power

   

-

   

Releasing the button will leave the engine power output at the level it has reached

   









 

Engine Start and Shut Off



When the engine is running, depressing the Analog button continuously for 2 seconds will shut it down (or open a menu).  When the engine is stopped, depressing the Analog button will (re)start the engine(s) (or open a menu).  This function essentially applies when an aircraft is picked up for a flight or after landing when the aircraft has been parked appropriately.

However, switching off an engine inflight might also be required (eg: to sve fuel or because oe engine fire) and restarting an engine inflight might also be necessary (in case of a jet engine flameout, or because the fire has been put off, or to recover full power, etc...).

The detailed procedures are described below.

   

-

   

Engine ON/OFF (aground) Single Engine

   





Depressing the Analog button once starts the engine.   Depressing the button more than once has no effect (only 1 click recognized)

   





Depressing the Analog button for 2 seconds when the engine is running will shut it down

   

-

   

Engine ON/OFF (aground) Multi-Engine

   





Depressing the Analog button once starts Engine1 (button disactivatef for 5 seconds)

   





When reactivated, depressing the Analog button twice will start Engine2 (buttout out > 5 sec)

   





When reactivated, depressing the Analog button three times will start Engine3 and so on...

   

Commencing with "Engine1" is not mandatory.  Eg:clicking the button twice initially would just have started Engine2 first.  However instructed on the radio, the starting sequence is the result of the game action only.

   





When one or more engines are running, depressing the Analog button for 2 seconds will make a Menu appear on the screen - See INFLIGHT MULTI-ENGINE mode below

   

-

   

Engine ON/OFF (INFLIGHT) Single Engine

   





Depressing the Analog button for 2 seconds when the engine is running will shut it down

   





Depressing the Analog button will restart the engine

   

-

   

Engine ON/OFF (INFLIGHT) Multi-Engine

   





When one or more engines are shut down, clicking an appropriate number of times on the Analogue button (once for Engine1, twice for Engine2, etc) will have the corresponding engine restart.

   





Depressing the Analog button for 2 seconds will make a Menu appear on the screen
showing engines, position and respective status
the cursor by default is on the first entry

   

(in the example below, Engine2 on a four-engined aircraft is off while the 3 others are running)

   

Engine 1

ON

Engine 2

OFF

Engine 3

ON

Engine 4

ON

   

At the same moment, the Circle, Triangle, Cross and the Arrow keys switch to Menu mode

   








Using the Down Arrow key will move the cursor from Engine1 down to Engine2

   

Engine 1

ON

Engine 2

OFF

Engine 3

ON

Engine 4

ON

   







Clicking on the Right Arrow button will move the cursor over the engines diagramme toward the status colum - doing so the status of the engine at stake is outlined as a potential change

   

Alternatively, clicking on the Circle button has the same effect, i.e.:
the cursor jumps to the status column
engine status is outlined as a potential change

   

Engine 1

ON

Engine 2

ON

Engine 3

ON

Engine 4

ON

   

1.






2.

Moving up (for ex.) in the menu using the Arrow key and then using the Circle button will potentially change the status of the engine chosen  Clicking on the Circle button again would revert that potential change

   


Clicking on the Cross button :
confirms the status change(s)
makes the menu disappears
Engine2 will restart
Circle/Triangle/Cross/Arrow keys are back inµ
   flight mode

   


At any state of this process prior the acceptance of the status change(s), clicking on the Triangle key will close the menu without any change of (engine) status occuring
