Maybe it's the prop pitch (CTRL + F2) (CTRL+F3) being out-of-whack?RhettAMD 3700+ (@2530 mhz), eVGA 7800GT 256 (Guru3D 93.71), ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2 GB Corsair XMS 3-3-3-8, WD 250 gig 7200 rpm SATA2, CoolerMaster Praetorian

Hi again.WellI think I have sorted it out But I dont understand what is the cause.I take off clime to the set altitude and leval off the speed then builds up when it passes 160kts I have no contol of the rev counters in the barron.So if I cut the speed down from 200kts to 160 kts the revs stay the same it is only when the speeds drops to below 120 kts dose the rev counter kick in again.Dose this happen in real flight or just in FSX It never happend in fs9 or should I say that I never noticed it in FS9 and I have only just noticed it in fsx I was trying to reduce the engine speeds to get better fuel efficancy.Or am I doing it all wrong again.Please Help.I must get this plane around the world in FSX as I did in FS9Best regardsRexPS heck of a job flying with just the Key board,How did you FS95 pilots manage it.

>Hi Geofa>Well I have checked out all the Prop driven airoplanes and the>only two with the problem is the Beech Barron and the Mooney>Bravo........>Rex Sounds like carburetor icing. In FSX, fuel injected engines ice up. 'H' will melt the ice. In the Mooney, 'H' or hitting the 'Prop deice' switch will restore MP. If the throttle lever moves over the full range, throttle control should be adequate. Sometimes hitting 'F4' will add a bit of power over full JS throttle setting. Of course, you have to lean the powerplants at higher altitudes or power will drop. Ron
