The only way I know is increasing the propeller's MOI in the aircraft.cfg file. The probelm is that it will also affect the response of the engines to sudden demands. It also doesn't seem to affaect much the spool up time, but has a greater influence on the spool down when shutting down engines.Paco

In the piston_engine section of aircraft.cfg i found this value:normalized_starter_torque= 0.3 My guess setting it to a lower value might bring the effect but not sure.RegardsDoc
