How the heck do you turn on both engines? I sit there hitting the I key, and it wont kick over? Do I need to feather the engine?

Being a dual engine craft you need to assign a seperate start key to each engine. Specifically i use Shift R for right engine select, Shift L for left engine select and Shift I for both engine select. the I key starts/stops the selected engine.

Start the aircraft by selecting the right engine (shift R) and then hit the I key. Let the engine wind up for approx 15 seconds, then select the left engine (shift L). Hit the I key to start it up, again let it warm up for approx 15 seconds then select both engines (shift I) now both engines are started correctly and any throttle changes will affect both engines.

Ok. If you have selected complex engine management, and seperate engine start, then you need to map controls for selecting the engines to start them one at a time. You should make sure that you have both engines selected when you are ready to add throttle for takeoff, or you will only be adding throttle to the last engine that you started. (The first time that I realised this, I instantly selected the first engine AFTER the throttle was up, and flamed it out . . . which brings me to another point: Throttle up SLLLLOOOOWWWWLLLYYY -slowly- or the engines will catch fire).

It's a good question, and one that's been puzzling me for some time now.

That plane is no fun to fly, to much srewing around with the throttles.

Try a one engine approach. Keep the nose up.

Opening the canopy helps to slow down.
