v0.2.1 Throttle



  • My Throttle has a mind of its own since this update.....increases revs without me touching the throttle when lined up for take off.

    Also stupid rudder engine torque compensation required to take off....and violently goes let around 60-70knots. 1 step forwards two steps back.



  • It also has no wiggle room or range. You are straight into overboost at even half the lever forward.

    The only custom throttle logic is to prevent the engine cutting out if you're starting from the runway. The Turbo Arrow engine will cut out at low RPM if it's not been warmed up, so when starting a flight from the runway the throttle will be automatically set to 25%. After a short period of time it will then automatically reduce to idle, unless you've adjusted it by more than 5% in the interim. If you are encountering any other throttle behaviour then please submit a support ticket.

    I'm not aware of any changes to engine torque but we'll investigate.

    That's not something we experienced issues with during testing. You should be able to smoothly advance the throttle making reference to the manifold pressure gauge to set approx. 40-41 inHG for takeoff. That will prevent the overboost warning.

    I have seen this on 0.2, so probably is still there in 0.2.1. Overboost at about 50% of throttle - a bit strange to take off with throttle lever half way forward. In 0.1.1 it was about 75-80% when overboost started.



  • @tatar the description from our Turbo Arrow pilots was "half to two thirds". We have had to make some changes to get the turbocharger behaviour representing the default factory setting of a fixed wastegate. In order to have the behaviour as close as possible (the sim does not support a fixed wastegate by default) we have had to accept two situations:

    1. the throttle is right at the lower limit of the described range, any further forward and you would not be able to maintain 41 inches manifold pressure through to 12,000ft.
    2. you have to begin leaning the mixture earlier than you would in the real aircraft, or you will begin to lose power.

    Both of those are caused by the core-sim, we have been unable to find a way around them.

    Thanks for explaining this. I was wondering if it was some kind of bug or a real thing.
