Prop Brake not engaged

Recommended Posts

I noticed today during my first flight with FS2Crew that even though the prop brake showed that it was engaged on the overhead, when I started #2, the prop RPM showed 15%. However, from the external view, the prop was not actually rotating.Anyone else noticed this?James

Hello James,You got me. I might suggest also posting this on the Flight1 ATR forum. Hans would know more about this than me. FS2Crew doesn't modify the engines or anything like that.EDIT: Actually, it sounds like you're running properly in Hotel Mode. I'm guessing that's modelled correctly; again, this is one for the Flight1 ATR forum.Cheers,Bryan

I get this too. By default, it seems that when the ATR is started cold & dark, the prop brake switch is actually ON but not LOCKED. The auxiliary hydraylic pump needs to be pressed once before the blue light indicating lock turns on.

Brian:I was thinking this might be something to do with the fact that FS2Crew changes the "Cold & Dark" config a little (engaging the prop brake). Based on the comment above, it does sound like this may be the case.It seems to me that a resolution may involve further refinement of the Cold & Dark to ensure that the brake is truly engaged; I would guess this is something on FS2Crew's side vs. a Flight1 fix?Either way, it's relatively minor.James
