Feathering the R4D

Recommended Posts

I have tried several times to stop one engine and the feather it. While I can distinctly hear the engine stop rotating when I press the feather button, I cannot see any change in the angle of attack of the propeller blades. Is this so?Regards,

Is this so?Yes,i'm afraid so,Domingos.We couldn't get that to synchronise yet.After you have pushed the feather button you can use Ctrl/F3 to pitch the blades in feather position visually too. Jan

I tried both Jan's (Ctrl/F3) and your suggestion.I didn't manage to have Ctrl/F3 putting the propeller in the feather position.Your suggestion works (moving the propeller control a little forward and then backward). What I also observed is that when the prop control is moved forward, the feather button comes to the normal position; if, after you get the propeller in the feather position, you press the button again, the prop comes out of the feather position.By the way, I tried both procedures with the BT and neither works.Regards,
