Losing electrical power in ATR panel

Recommended Posts

Not sure if I can make this clear, but it appears to me that I never have generator power in the ATR. I've tried a couple of different ATR panels and I use CTRL-E to start the engines. But after about 20 minutes all my electrical power goes out. If I load another plane, it looks like the generator switch is OFF.At some point I set a plane with everything OFF and saved it as default to be able to start with a cold cockpit. Could this be the cause?Any ideas?The actual ATR I fly doesn't seem to matter, only that I've tried two different panels, both recommended by a friend. Is there supposed to be a place to turn "on" a generator or is this supposed to happen automatically?I don't even know if this is the problem, only that I lose electrical power every flight after a certain time.. all gauges, instruments go out except for a few. I can still fly and the engine runs..Jeff

Consulting the keyboard command assignment:Press Ctrl-Shift M to toggle Battery & Alternator/Generators on/off...Even if there is no switch present, you can always revert to the keyboard...
