Easy Start for The Boeing 247?

I know this sounds terrible, but is there an “easy” way to start the Boeing 247D with Ctrl+E vs. wobble pumps and magnetos etc. when you want to fly quickly? I have full fuel and all three checkmarks on the realism settings shut off and the mixture up, but the plane starts then dies.

Make sure your throttle is like 25-50%

Thank you!!!

My engines are running and stay running now!

Except even with the parking brake off I’m not moving despite full throttle - I’m still missing something.

She is full of quirks, even on easy mode. But those quirks are part of her charm. I learned to fly her the same way.
