  1. Not a real pilot, but as I understand: The reduction gears in Garrett geared engines do not like negative loading (i.e. propeller driving the engine instead of the normal engine driving the propeller). By this I mean negative loading can cause severe damage and the need to replace an expensive part. In flight a physical lock is used to prevent the propellers from entering a certain propeller angle, forget the value for the Metro, but let's say something like 35 degrees. The end goal is to ensure the engines are always producing a torque on the props. I'm not sure if Razbam simulated the the lockout to prevent moving the power levers to ground idle power/beta or just to prevent the levers from visually moving to below flight idle. -Bryant
