Hi

Love flying this plane but get lots of smoke from one or both engines

Anything I could do to stop it?

There is a setting in Plane Maker.exe for exhaust amount that you could try adjusting.

Make a copy of the original .afc file, then open that copy in Planemaker. Go to Standard - Engine Specs - SFC/Sound.

Look for "Exhaust Dirtiness" at the lower right, and adjust it down from the default setting of 1.0. Then save the file, and make sure you're loading the copy and not the original when you test it.

Note: This works for most aircraft models, but some payware models might include copy protection that won't load a model that's been altered in Planemaker. I don't think it will hurt to try on a copy of the .acf file.

Are you sure you didn’t damage the engine?  I only get black smoke if I’m operating the engines outside safe parameters and one catches fire.

Thanks for those suggestions 

Have not tried modifying the .acf file yet

Am aware of the propensity to damage the engine by overdoing it but careful takeoffs still get smoke!
