engine auto-start behavior?

Recommended Posts

Good morning,

Can someone please explain to me how the engine auto-start is supposed to behave?  I find it very inconsistent. 

I have it mapped to a button on the Saitek flight quadrant, and... sometimes I push it, and the engine starts.  Sometimes if I hold it down for a few seconds, it will start.  Sometimes no matter what I do, it will not start.

I am shutting down, by using the fuel cut-off, mapped to the "reverse" axes/button on the same Saitek.

Hoping someone can shed some light.  If there is a superior way to do this, please let me know.

Which aircraft(s)?  They all can operate a bit differently.

Hi Alan,

It is the top entry here:   (FSX AirTractor AT802 Package (Updated))

I am required to use the AT802 for this project.  I know it's not an ideal model, but... it's what I need.  (unrelated - if there is better air tractor/fireboss I can use, please let me know, as I haven't found it yet...)

I have tinkered with enough of its config to correct the majority of the issues with it.
