Engine shut down

Recommended Posts

hi,

in every flight i do with the dimona the engine shuts down when i am ca. 10 kilomeers away of my airfield, and i am not able to start them up again, oil temperature is normal, RPM is high but not over the red line,and i also have enough fueli ask me what i do wrong... or is it a bug?

What about the Cylinder Head Temperature? This baby has cowl flaps. ;)

the probcontroller was on and "auto" was setted

cilynde rhead temperature was also in the green area of the display and the cowl flpas were opened a bit

i have a glider license and i `ve flown with a real dimona ( just as a passenger) sometimes but i do not know if i do everythin allright :P

i did the flights this way:

Ground:

main switch: on

( there are two white switches were the light switches are... i think they are for the magnetions?) they were on too :P

several light switches: on

fuel pump: on

cowl flaps: closed

ignition: on

oil pressure oil temo usw.: checked

parking brake: settet

engine startup

then i pushed the choke back and waited till the oil temp increased

after that i controlled if the green LED lights in the pro controller panel

-> started-> fuel pump -> off -> normal flight ( some times i looked after oil temp and so on) and then the engiene made a strenge noise and shut down -> prop control -Segel and so i got back to the airfield

after landing it was'nt possible to start the engine again

it was like pushing the started when the ignition is off

I meant the cirquit breaker for the prop panel.

The CHT gauge has no green arc, so it can't be in the green. I think you over RPM the engine, because the CB is not in. Cheers, Joachim

P.S. I also advise to use the checklist, no a self made one!

yes, i know, it was on all the time

by the way: i rebooted my computer ( because of a update)

no the problme is fixed Oo

but an other question: is there a way to see the cilynder head temp. display better? I can`t see the whole display because of the Gps and parts of the instrument covering

thank you all for your many answers :)

Lovely greats

Without TrackIR and/or EZCA? You could move your eyepoint with the FSX commands up or down to catch a view on that gauge and then move it back. Use Shift+Return and Shift+Backspace.

Maybe another user can give you some camera definition to switch to for the gauges on the right. If you set up such a definition in the aircraft.cfg of the plane, you can press A to switch to another cockpit view for example.

I'm using TrackIR and EZCA here, so I just have to move my head or can set up some new views in seconds. But both items aren't that cheap, but a big tip for enhancing the whole flying experience.

Glad to hear that your engine trouble was solved. :)

Yes, track IR is highly recommended!

No there is no other option except for moving the viewpoint. The Dimona has this layout.

Cheers, Joachim

Is it not possible to simply swap the position of the Voltmeter with that of the Cylinder temp gauge? Excellent aircraft by the way. NeilB
