suddenly running out of fuel: harmful for the engine?

Hey guys, because the P-40 has no gauges for the reserve and the aux tank we're prone to run out fuel temporary. I know it's a question of timing and managing the fuel tank system to avoid that. Anyway: Does it harm the engine if you run out of fuel and the propeller drives the engine until you swit...

joystick-mapping: magentos/starter

Hey guys, via the A2A input configurator I've assigned two of my joystick buttons zu the magneto/starter key (switching left/right). When I try to start the engine the key instantly jumps back from the "start" position although I keep the button depressed. The second time it always holds the positio...

Re: flaps/gear down speeds

Thanks for the clarification, Rob.

Yes, I always fly the T6 with IAS in mph. (But I can't confirm a heavier line at 150 mph ;).)

tiny inlet above oil cooler inletHe

Hey guys, there seem to be a additional inlets integrated above the oil cooler scoop facing to the left and right. You can see it here also: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFXOpLReNgg (1:31). What are they intended to do? And what are the pipes behind the oil cooler scoop good for? Thanks in advanc...

Re: flaps/gear down speeds

Edit: The white arc is the Vfe and Vle is 150 mph, correct? Manual p. 103.

flaps/gear down speeds

Hey guys, the manual says at page 101 ("airspeed limitations") there should be a yellow line on the airspeed indicator showing the flaps down speed. As far as I see there's only the yellow arc (for sure not representing Vfe :)). Or am I blinded? As far as I remember Vfe and Vle are 125 mph. Please c...

deicer pressure gauge without function?

Hey guys, does the deicer pressure gauge have any function? As far as I understand it shows the pressure available to hold the wing boots tight and with wing de-ice activated the pressure shown should fall. But I can't see any reaction here at all - it only shows a static pressure 1.4 if engines are...

Re: Cabin Superchargers Inlet Switches Operation

No, I don't think number 1 and 4 do have anything to do with the AC exclusively. That's stated in the A2A manual and was intended so originally. But in the sim in fact the AC is driven only by eletricity and therefore you need all four generators running for the AC to work. Maybe number 1 and 4 do d...

Re: Cabin Superchargers Inlet Switches Operation

Hello Roger and thank you for your very interesting input. Yes, I always handle the pressurization myself for achieving optimum passenger comfort. ;) Concerning your observation with the rising temperatures on approach: Are you sure this does not have to do with the need to switch from heating to co...

Re: Cabin Superchargers Inlet Switches Operation

Hey guys, it seems to me the supercharger inlet switches don't have a simulated function at all. I pulled out the Connie after some absence for doing some rtw and this morning I performend an excessive line of ground checks (not taking her to the air yet). I noticed with idling engines the air flow ...
