[SOLVED] EC135 P2 engine switches

Helicopter flying is completely different from flying a fixed-wing aircraft and thus requires different skills.

[SOLVED] EC135 P2 engine switches

Postby Marty » Fri Feb 23, 2018 3:13 pm

I'm in the process of learning how to start the EC135 but I'm unable to put the engine switches into FLIGHT mode when both needles reach 74% N1. I tried every button on my mouse (including scrolling) but can't get them to flight position. What am I doing wrong? I followed the checklist in the help screen.

EDIT: SOLVED! I was clicking like a maniac a minute ago on those switches and one of them turned into flight position. I had to click higher, before I was clicking in the center :-)

you should consider to use CTRL-C to hilite all the clickable spots... CTRL-C to turn it off again...
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."
