Im playing a campaign with the early hurricane. When im just flying and not in combat I often find the engine turns off in mid flight. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, I manage prop pitch and the radiator. This hasn't happened to me in any other planes. Any help would be great thanks. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

Could be mixture or supercharger setting (you going up?)

Reduce mixture with altitude and goto supercharger stage 2 (at about 3000 m high I think it was...).

Not supercharger or mixture. There is no mixture control for the model of hurricane I'm flying. And this happens bellow 3000m aproximatly around 1500ms. So neither of those apply. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

If its the Mk.I Hurri its gravity feed so if you nose down while flying level you will kill the engine.

the carberator will die out with a small amount of negative g's, you'll be able to resart it in flight. Too early of a model that doesnt have fuel injection.

Did anyone see that or was it just me?

What ScorpionWorm said. Listen to your engine, and if it starts dying because of negative G, just pull the stick, and it'll live again. After a bit of practice, you won't even notice it any more.

It hates negative G's...not like the Rata but close. Watch the RPM guage...when it starts to fall and you are pushing forward on the stick, stop. Use inverted dives to prevent this from happening.

Ah HA! I will now refrain from hitting the dash sharply and watch my negative Gs instead..maybe my monitor will last alittle longer too.

You can also restart in flight, but watch your guages and give it time. Also severe turbulence can shut down engine too, cos in air pocket you can experience high negative gees very briefly.

Same thing happens to both the Fiat and Polikarpov planes. But unlike Hurri you have to be moving with some airspeed to re~start. Hurri can start engine sitting on the ground.

This engine cut~out is one of the Fun things about these planes.
