Default How To Engine Start Up

Hey guys i made this topic with the intention of posting videos of how to start the engines of all planes using the complex engine management, it will be updated with videos as they come along, Feel free to add your own videos and comments. The main post will be updated

Spitfire I


TigerMoth


Hurricane


Blenheim IV


BF109 E3 - Video by Targ


JU 87 (Stuka)


JU88


G.50


BR.20


HE 111




Carb Heat: Carb heat is used to prevent build up of ice on the carburetor, this can stall the engines. You will need to monitor the temps of the carbs in flight and may have to turn on carb heat when flying at high altitudes. I would recommend using carb heat where available on landings and takes off as the pressure difference may cause a build up of ice. Not all planes have the need for carb heat, the superchargers on most fighters heat the incoming air enough for no need for carb heat.

i just can repeart myself from another topic:
"in general use LEAN mixture and IDLE throttle in all planes.
Than , in the most you have to activate the fuel first, yes. Excetions so far are :Bf110, G.50 and Br.20 IIRC.
the easiest wuld be to map a key on that function not to have to search the cockpit with your mouse....

in the Spits, Hurris, FIATs and Blenheim to wait till the engine gets some temperature before giving more throttle and mixture is very important, otherwise your engine i quits..

and now something special: the Br20 and Blenheim you have to activate carburetor preheating too , OH YES
map it too a key is my best advice

you dant have to activate the magnetos manually, the "start button" (on whatever key you have it, i strg+I ) is activating them


i have only ONE big proplem: in the Ju88, He111s and Bleheim i am only able to start the left engine !! right engine dont start. Any ideas ??"

Thanks a LOT mate. Especially the moth, I just could not get it to start. I'll be able to follow your instructions and try again. Thanks again for doing this.

Here's my procedure and it works in 99% of my tries:

- Fuel switch on Primary
- Magneto 1 and 2 On
- Mixture Rich (= lever all the way BACK in the cockpit)
- Prop Pitch High
- Handpump 5x
- Press and Hold(!) "I" until the engine is running

Once it is started up, you want to hold -1 to +1 Boost to bring up the temperatures.

I have my rads closed until the temperature is high enough (~40 on the oil and ~60 on the water) and then open them before rolling.

Hope that helps!

well, I think it's a bummer we have to figure this out by ourselfs.. even the RAF pilots from the time had more instructions how to do things as we have now.
anyways, I might seem to be ranting a lot but I really love the sim so far
masterpiece anyway with these flaws.
