Problem Starting Aircraft Using Control + E

Recommended Posts

I just installed FSUIPC and made some flight control re-assignments, NOT including anything around starting the aircraft (Cessna 172. Or Waco YMF-5).

On Free Flight, I had the default flight set up “cold and dark”, in other words, all switches off.  Now when I try to start the flight, everything works up to hitting Cont+E to start the engine. Nothing happens.  I’m sure somebody has had this problem before and can help.  Also, if I load a flight other than the default, sometime the engine is started, other times, not.  Any ideas?

What aircraft did you use to create your cold & dark default flight?  I always recommend NOT using the default flight to start anything.  I would choose the aircraft I wish to fly and then create a flight plan and weather and hit "Fly Now".  CTRL+E should turn on the battery and generators and crank the engines.  Where did the Waco YMF-5 come from?

I had this problem on a couple a/c and fixed it by turning unlimited fuel on in Settings. May or may not work for you.
