Can you please post .cfg engine data for Q400?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,Was wondering if you could please post the engine data section of your Dash 8 Q400 aircraft (any manufacturer). My Dreamwings Q400 is near impossible to slow down - it can maintain 200kts on idle power and the speed only drops if I chuck in flaps.I must add that I am using the Dreamwings *Fokker 50* aircraft.cfg as the Q400 .cfg was causing big problems (unflyable plane). It flies perfectly now...except the hugely excess speed at idle power.What could I tweak in the aircraft.cfg? Static thrust? If you have a better .cfg could you please post it?
