Tutorial "Takeoff"

Postby hkwmon » Fri Jul 27, 2018 10:30 am

I have installed the latest FlightGear version 2018.2.2.0.
I started the tutorial "Takeoff".
The engine is running and now the text
-Release the Parking brake "Schift B"
I have seen parking brake is OFF, the lever is horizontal
and then the next text
-Smootly apply full power using PgUp controlling the direction of the nose wheel
I have increased the speed up to 2300 RPM.
But the plane does not move. I also do not see a horizon.

Probably you have no terrain installed either if you don't see a horizon - why don't you do that for the tutorial location and see if things get better?

Check your settings:
Maybe the plane has the wheel chokes on.
If so either click on "Cessna 172">"Settings" & uncheck the box saying "Enable safety" or something similar or
get out of your plane & click on the chokes.
Reply if it worked.
