To my surprise I really enjoy the Porter PC-6 (I actually think it’s a hideous plane…) but I’m not quite sure how to fly it properly.
I found a real POH, and the Milviz P3D POH but I still don’t quite know what typical cruise settings are. I noticed it’s very very easy to overspeed (i.e. exceed 115kts) so my typical cruise off the top of my head is about 50% prop, 50% throttle, and the 3rd lever on high idle. This way I’m roughly in the ballpark of the stated cruise speed, but I don’t really know what I’m doing.
Can anyone who has more experience with the PC-6 explain how you typically use the 3 levers during the normal flight phases realistically?
Edit: Found a pretty good explanation here: power - condition - propeller levers - Thranda Pilatus PC-6 Turbo Porter - X-Plane.Org Forum, so the prop lever can be left as is, the condition lever is high idle pretty much all of the time so you can just adjust throttle for desired speed.
