DIAMOND DA 40 High RPMS ..How to Control ??

Recommended Posts

So Ive been flying the DA-40 around for fun , great slow plane for sight seeing....Anyways Ive noticed that I hit the RED rpm  constantly even in level flight...

 

The only way I can keep the rpm indicator warning from going off is flying with maybe quarter throttle which puts the LOAD around 15 percent but drops my speed way below max cruise...

 

I dont see any type of engine controls other than the throttle.....  Is having high rpm indicator going on and off just a normal thing in this plane? Am I doing it wrong? Is there some hidden rpm controller somewhere I just havent found?  

Thanks in advance...

Diamond aircraft like the DA40 are fitted with a FADEC that gives single lever manifold pressure and prop controller.

It is badly implemented in MSFS 2020 .

There is a DA40 "improvement mod" kicking about that does help a bit.

Tommy has done a superb job on the improvement mod.  Nearly 64,000 downloads.  He updated it again in June.

Call me Rob or Bob - I don't mind...  OK, I prefer Rob actually!

I like to trick airline passengers into thinking I have my own swimming pool in my back yard by painting a large blue rectangle on my patio!
