This game is great! I will get straight to my question. Whenever I get into dogfights or sometimes doing evasive maneuvares my engine will stall out and I can't refire it. I've tried many things. Perhaps their's something I'm missing. I've been ditchin' my plane everytime because I can't get the power I need. I know with the I-I6 you have to have a ground crew start it. The engine sounds like its still alive, it just wont work. Anyways, Any help would be great. Thanks.

I'm not sure of your exact problem but you're right, if the I-16 cuts out completely due to inverted flying you cannot restart the engine. You're now a glider.

The rest of it may be sound issues.

Ya thats what I needed to hear :]. I guess I gotta take it a bit easier on the joystick.

Funny... I was actually looking for some info about this, in the forum. So, with the engine stalling, is that just realistic engine behavior that the developers included in this game? It's pretty damn frustrating to spend so much time in the air with these planes, and then have the engine stall out- ruining all chances of completing the mission successfully.

Ya I guess that's why russians fighters suck. Or at least this one :]. I mean it is fast and maneuverable but any kind of loop or roll you will most likely stall the engine. I guess thats great if you wanna be a fighter glider....

Yes on certain carbureted planes the engine will die if you pull negative Gs, how difficult it was to restart IRL I don't know, but basically when flying those planes you should not pull negative Gs ever or you are asking for trouble.

The funny thing is, that when you read about real I-16 pilots, they are constantly restarting the engine in-flight when it stalls.

Igor Kaberov said that when the I-16 was taking off without warming the engine, the motor was likely to stall sometimes 3 or 4 times before and after it got airborne, and had to be restarted each time. I wonder why you can't restart it in FB.

If you're talking about FB, try setting a fairly coase pitch to get the prop windmilling, then select both magnetos (you may need to assign keys in control setup) and you may find it fires up. I've seen a post to that effect today.

Just tried that. Whether using mag 1, 2 or 1+2, the motor will not start.

I have experienced the same problem with the i-16. I realize that the engine will stall with excessive negative G. I can usually prevent this from happening, but when it does the only way I can re-start it is by engaging the AUTOPILOT. Haven't figured out how to re-start it properly. I have also noticed the same problem with the He-111, I can not restart an engine after manually shutting it off. Any tips?

I just tried the Autopilot and it does restart the enginge.
I have also tried the magneto switch solution and it also worked fine. One thing though about the switch, I had to switch magneto to off (with 'Magneto Prev.') and with good rotation on the propeller I switched up all the way to 1+2 (with 'Magneto Next').

So just keep trying and you will stop spreading yourself over the landscape!

the problem why the engine dies out is that it has no pumping system that pumps the fuel into the engine i think... so if the engine gets negativ G, there wont come anymore fuel into it and it dies...same thing about the I-153 and hurricane mkI... and you cant restart the motor because normally it has to be cranked up from the outside.... but not sure about all this... correct me if im wrong
