Charles Prowse lost engine number 2, feathered, shut down, nowhere to set down. I could almost maintain altitude on engine 1 and thought I could make it or atleast to the flats where it was safer to land and lost engine number 1. I landed in a clearing with two dead engines.
Norm Richards I'll bet you overheated the engines.. no matter what you try for realism these engines will overheat, catch fire and shutdwon if you push them too far. At least you lived to tell this tale.lol. so will credit you this flight for hours. When flying at cruise keep props down to 75-80% and throttle down to 75% oh and make sure you set the cowls at take off. Norm
Charles Prowse My 7 year old hit the feather on 2 when I left the room. After trying various things to restart (feather did not stay engaged as I found out later he hit the red button) I could not restart. I typically run full cowl flaps until cruise I will close them a bit, throttle about 90 props around 90, get the rpm in the green. I was losing altitude after awhile and that is what happened to engine 1. I pushed it all the way hoping to maintain or get to the airport or at least past the mountains to the flats to set down. 1 over heated but did not catch fire, I shut it down when it started losing power. Thanks for the hours, just wanted to let you know what happened. Now off to the last on the hops tour. That short St. Michaels strip!
