L-1011 Engine Out

Recommended Posts

So I grabbed the 1011 on sale and am loving it. Due to some headwinds and poor flight planning I ended up with an engine out on final approach. Since all the controls are hydraulically operated I had no aileron or elevator and couldn't maneuver for an emergency landing. I tried using the ram air turbine but it appears to not be simulated.

 

What do do on engine failure? No controls at all. Or am I missing something?

 

Thanks for your help!

Thanks for that Alan! 

 

So I have done some experimenting... up to 20000 feet and killed the engines. 

 

If all 3 engines are dead there is no hydraulics pressure and, hence, no controlling the plane. The RAT seems to not be modeled as it should deploy when the third engine dies. It doesn't.

 

If you start the APU it WILL power the hydraulics system.

 

But, if you've run out of fuel... you're dead. No escaping it. The second that last engine dies you have ZERO control.

 

So, land before you run out. Cause there is no such thing as an engine out landing on this bird.
