First of all, I have never made / edited any FDE so I actually dunno what I am talking about, but you could try increasing the static_thrust in the {TurbineEngineData} (< square brackets) section of your aircraft.cfg, got that info from the SDK.Good luck and please let me know if it works, since I also might need it... :-)Etienne :-wave

Hi Andy,I can share with you what I learned when I asked the very same question of the guys at Project Airbus: Using AirEd, open up your airfile and look at section 1506 "fs2000 thrust factor vs N1 and mach no" - there you'll see a number of columns the titles of which are numbers representing N1 values (eg 17.4000000, 26.000000, 28.7000000 etc.) Now look for the column that approximates the n1 value of your aircaft at idle, i.e. if your aircraft idles at 30%% n1, your target column in the examples above would be 28.700000 - now experiment by steadily increasing the value in the FIRST row below your aircraft's idle N1)Using this technique I have been able to reproduce idle taxi in several aircraft without adversely affecting anything other than idle fuel flow - (an fs2002 limitation I was told).hope this helpsRegards,Mark
