Was trying to fly the Justflight Arrow and couldn’t get the engine started with the usual way, so I tried
1: fuel pump on, fuel tank (L) selected, mixture about 75%, throttle up a little, magnetos on, starter pumping for 10 seconds or less.
Once that failed, I thought I’d try Ctrl+Shift+E
The “flypad” EFB has an option to set the aircraft into “Ready for takeoff” state, so I selected that. The engine ran for about 1 to slightly less than 2 seconds before shutting down.
Pressing Y and F4 to slew up into the sky, the aircraft became airborne, and immediately shut down, turning itself into a glider.
So I tried it in the Default C172, starting the aircraft in the air (not at an airport) and … at the point of spawning in, the engine could be heard cutting to a stop and the 172 was a glider.
Ctrl+E would make the rpm increase for about 5 seconds till the magneto switch rolled out of Start back to Both. Check of the fuel cutout knob (it was in, I think Ctrl+E does that)
I have deleted all throttle axis relating to Mixture, and all switches relating to fuel pumps and tested again. Still failed, even when pressing Alt+V between attempts.
The engines on prop planes will not switch on. Ctrl+E will run the C172 engine up to about 500rpm for the duration of “Start” being applied, then drop back to 0 after 5 seconds.
