carenado bonanza A36 ignition switch?

10 posts in this topic

I am unable to start the engine using the ignition switch in the virtual cockpit, this means to start it I have to use ctrl+e

I have the update installed still no joy, anyone else have this too?

Cheers

Jim

Have you got the mixture leaver fully forward? I'm just guessing as I've not got the A36

Yeah - I've got other carenado planes and they work but this one the mouse pointer turns into a hand wen hovering over the switch, it even shows a grab hand when clicking and holding but the switch doesn't turn wen I move the mouse in any direction.

The other carenado plane switch has a + and - when grabbing not this one

Try pressing ctrl+shirt+f4

That will make the mixture full rich for you without the need to drag the level around

I will try this but I have pushed the mixture full all the way - it just seems I cannot turn the knob in any direction. It doesnt matter because I do all my pre-checks and switches and then I press ctrl+e to start the engine. Not a big problem anymore I have got into the habit.

Thanks for your reply though mate

I know I'm a bit late into this one Jim and I see you have a work around anyway but have you tried scrolling the mouse wheel when hovering over the switch?

Apologies if you've tried it.

I have not tried that - instead I have put the F33A into the hangar for a repaint - going to look exactly like the A36 but the ignition key actually works :)

The F33A suites what I use it for more anyway because instead of having passenger seats and doors it has a nice little cargo door with baggage - so I can act out my touring properly when I land get the bags out etc ya di da!

I will try that though as it is something I didn't think about

Tried the mouse wheel on the F33A and it did turn the ignition - didn't have chance to test it on the A36 but I would imagine it would be the same and work. Thanks Sabre!

OK tried the mouse scroll on the A36 and what do you know - it frickin worked :) Now I can actually start my A36 the way it should be started!!!

I didn't like the ctrl+E way because it was too forgiving when you have missed something from your startup procedure; not though I forgot to set the fuel switch to one of the tanks and the engine spluttered and stopped - NICE!!!

THANKS SABRE I LOVE YOU X ;)
