Engine starting - watching blade turns

Recommended Posts

Just bought the P3Dv4 version and loving it. Perhaps this is a stupid question, but how do you see the engines from the cockpit to count propeller blade turns during engine startup? In the sim version; I know in the real aircraft you can look out the window and back towards the engines.

Hi ?

Fortunately, there is an audible call-out with each start, "3, 6, 9, 12" so that you can time your start sequence without too many virtual contortions :)

You can also open a new view (the '[' key] and set it up to be looking nose-on at the aircraft and engines, but I use the call-outs that Carl mentions.
