C441 great plane

With the startlocks engaged the blades are at a completely flat pitch. (depending on the air and cfg file this doesn't necessary happen at 0 deg).

If you apply power (the powerlevers aren't locked IRL) the prop RPM will increase, but the blades remain at a flat pitch and basically no torque is being generated.

That's what can make taxiing interesting IRL, if one prop comes of the startlocks and the other one doesn't.

So, what's unrealistic about their implementation then?

Unfortunately, FSX/P3D does not allow direct manipulation of beta angle.  It comes as a result primarily from fuel flow.  So without building some complicated .dll, restricting fuel flow is the only way it can be simulated.  I have the RABZAM Metro, but I haven't flown it more than a couple of times.  I will look later but my guess is that they use a .dll that we can't see into to control the start locks.

Thanks.  That explains it.
