At the moment to take off : impossible to accelerate !

Postby Chloé - Flight Gear » Thu May 09, 2019 8:55 pm

Hello,

I download this afternoon FlightGear. I used the Cessna 172P.
I did all the check lists. At the moment to take off : impossible to accelerate !
The engine is working, the brakes are off, mixture is at 100%, carbu is cold, and when I push the throttle nothing happens! (I'm not moving or really slowly.)
I did the tutorial and it says to press PgUp but I'm not moving either.
Does someone have an idea of what’s wrong ?

Thank you !

Is it possible that you exceed the maximum takeoff weight? By default the 172p comes with the fuel tanks to the maximum.

Are the chocks or tie downs enabled? If you go outside you should see them in the nose wheel or attached to the wings / tail respectively.

Also to confirm, you do hear the engine volume and pitch increase as you throttle up, correct?

What does your scenery look like? Are you on a runway?

I was finally able to take off ! I think it was a problem with the tutorial. Without it worked.

Sometimes the brakes are a sticky, so it helps to step on them to release them. One of the experts mentioned a bug.
