Hi all,

Bought the Cub today and can't start it unless I use Ctrl+E, what is the normal procedure to do a cold start without Accu-Sim? I've read and seen some videos but all with Accu-sim expansion. It's the Ctrl+E the only option?

Thanks

Hi and welcome to the community,

I am not quite sure, if you can hand-start it without Accu-Sim. A2A had built this aircraft to start as the real thing.
(the default FSX Cub has a starter position in his magnetos switch, where A2A has only "stop, left, right and both"). Try different views from cockpit - in FSX by default they are cycled with "A" key, you can hand-start from the view next to the engine and just behind the prop. It is well explained in the manual of the aircraft.

P.S. I strongly suggest that you get the Accu-Sim package, it is a totally different experience with it. :wink:

Cheer,
Will

Have you read the manual? I recommend it, it's a great read. Anyway, on page 42 under Starting, it states the Accu-Sim package is required for hand starting.

And I would highly recommend the accu-sim package.

I can only agree with Will here. That Accusim pack is a total must have for those planes the came in seperate packages. It'll give you hours over hours of fun with the Cub!

Happy flying

Thank you both for your replies. Yeah I believe that with the accusim will be a much better experience, I'll get it for sure in a near future, but for now I'll have to fly without it. Regarding the cold start I wonder if I'm missing something? Anyway thank you both for your suggestions.

Cheers

Hi mjj,

no, I did not read the complete manual but i searched the cold start procedure and I didn't find anything about it without the accum-sim package. Thanks for your help.

Cheers
