Piper Seneca II asymetric thrust behaviour

Recommended Posts

For Xmas I bought myself the Carenado Piper Seneca II for FSX. I like to use it for IFR and practice emergencies, etc.

 

Sometimes for the challenge I turn off an engine midflight, or during takeoff or approach. So, how realistic is the asymetric thrust on this Piper Seneca ?

 

In flight it seems to handle well (a bit of extra work) with one engine out, Same goes for approach if you know how to counteract for the missing engine.

 

However, once on the ground I noticed it is extremely difficult to get the Carenado Piper Seneca II moving with only one engine. It either moves very slowly or doesn't move at all. I am not a real life pilot but I doubt a plane would get crippled on the ground if only one engine is running.
