- Check oil temps when you start flying.
I thought I was. I'll double check that the oil is getting warm enough.
- Negative G aerobatics.
Nope. Not doing them....yet!
If you are running 1 quart down (3 quarts), you will not have 2 quarts on the bottom with 1 quart circulating, 2 quarts down you only have 1 quart in the bottom, etc
In the 2D Panel (shift+4) it always shows that I have 4 brown coloured boxes, even after a 2 1/2 hour flight, so I'm assuming it's still full. Nothing happens when I press Refill anyway.
- Prop overspeed.
I guess this could be the most likely cause. Although I set the engine to idle and try not to descend too quickly so that the prop won't overspeed.
Fortunately it's a simulator so it costs nothing to fix so it isn't all bad. But I really am trying to do it right. Practice will get me there in the end. I hope.
