Engine shutdown?

Recommended Posts

Works ok here. Just make sure that the condition levers are fully aft. If they are even a fraction forward of the fully aft position, you will not be able to move the red backstop release levers to shut down the engines.

At least in P3D 4.4, I'm 0/0% on the throttles and condition levers and still can't get things shut down. I hover over the red cut offs and get a hand pointer with the tool tip, but I can't do anything. I get an Engine 1 shutoff (shutoff) on the left and Engine 2 shut (On) on the right as pop up tool tips.

0% condition levers is not feather, that's only minimum rpm!  You can't pull the props into feather with the mouse.

You need to either use an axis assignment, a button or a key for 'reduce prop rpm' to move the props into feather.

IRL there's usually a gate or at least a noticable increased resistance so you can't accidently pull the props below minimum rpm into feather.
