Hotel mode and Power Management tutorials from Carenado

Recommended Posts

A couple of new tutorials by Carenado detailing Hotel mode and Power Management I thought people might find useful.

Cheers.

Did anyone try to start ENG2 in Hotel-Mode? Even with Prop-Brake set ON the Prop is spinning 😞

I see no hydraulic pressure on the gauge. Did you pressed the small button beneath the parking brake before engaging the prop brake ?

Yes, i've checked Hyd Press, but the pressure was lost. I've tried it a few times with no luck. This is the way i did it:

System state "Cold and Dark"
1. Batt ON
2. Prop Brake OFF checked
3. Gust Lock OFF
4. Hyd Aux Pump ---> 3000 PSI checked
5. Prop Brake "ready light" checked
6. Prop Brake ON, "Unlock light" OFF after 10 sec. checked
7. Prop Brake Light ON checked
8. Eng Start Selector "Start A+B" SET
9. Right Fuel Pump ON
10. Start 2 PRESSED
11. Oil, ITT checked
12. Right CL SET to FTR

And even with Prop Brake set the right propeller is spinning with high speed 😞

You need the gust lock to be ON before starting the engine.
