Engine damage?

Recommended Posts

Hello all. 

 

First of all, massive thanks to PMDG for this lovely addition to my ever growing fleet of aircraft. As of yet I've made four flights. As I don't really have enough time to really understand this aircraft I am using the AFE to get myself up in the air in a reasonable time. I love this feature! However on two of my four flights, during takeoff the AFE pushed the throttles so far that the engines take damage. Manifold pressure goes up to over 60"! 

 

What can be the cause of this?

Do you have hardware throttles? If so, where are they during this time?

 

What kind of takeoff are you using - wet or dry?

Dry takeoff and yes I have HW throttles. They are just above or at idle. 

 

Thanks for the quick response!

Did you load the scenario file that we provided you with, or did you set the aircraft up a different way?

Nope. Just loaded it cold-and-dark at ESSA.
