Occasional loss of power


Recommended Posts

Every now and then when I am climbing the aircraft will all of a sudden start to lose power and no matter what I do, it continues to lose thrust. it doesn't happen every flight but when it does I have to restart because even if I start to descend it will continue to drop and I will fall out of the sky. Is this a known issue that will be addressed in the coming update? That's about the only bug I have run into so far with this amazing plane!

make sure you don't have Mixture assigned to a control...

When you say "lose thrust" in climb, is the engine power actually decreasing, or are you losing the ability to climb/maintain speed?

 

There have been a couple of threads on similar issues (topics you might search for):

  • Phantom spoiler deployment / use of the Esc key
  • Icing set to visual only (still adds weight/drag)
  • Wing A/I uses significant bleed air, especially at higher altitude (~5% hit to N1)
  • Falling behind the power curve (climbing at too slow an airspeed)
  • Key-bindings

Thank you, I tried looking but I just didn't find those posts I guess. It is not a loss of thrust, it's the ability to climb/maintain airspeed. I'll be climbing and then I will watch as my speed starts to rapidly decrease followed by loss of altitude. I did not know pressing the ESC key caused phantom spoiler deployment, I haven't messed with the icing settings and I'm always careful to turn off anti-ice as soon as I can because I did know that caused a reduction in N1. I climb out at .74 Mach at least so that shouldn't be the issue.
