When I shutdown engine using magnetos, is possible restart it again using magnetos. But when I shutdown the engine with mixture at 0%, is not possible restart it using mixture or magnetos. In this case, I need restart the engine using the "start" key. is this correct?

And more, when engine is shutdown using magnetos, it reach the overheat level when the power is high. I think which this is a bug.

Think about it;

Well, when using magnetos, all you're basically doing is powering down the ignition system (Spark plugs), when you lower the mixture you're cutting the engines' fuel supply.

When you power down the ingnition system, you have un-burned fuel that is still burning when it's released, heating up more surface area of the engine.

By cutting the fuel mixture, you're doing the exact opposite, and making less fuel to heat up engine components, also decreasing the areas of the engine affected by fuel burn.

Oleg's team made no mistake here, and I commend them for that. Thanks Oleg, and un-named developers for adding even more realisim to this wonderfull sim!

Hang on a sec. If you cut the mixture in flight, u should still be able to start the engine again by simply richen the mixture again! Since the prop is still spinning... Its like starting a car by setting first gear and roll down a hill...That is not the case in FB right now!

S!

Inflight start procedure for most light a/c is as follows, with other parameters such as EGT overheat to consider, but thankfully we dont have to worry about all of this in IL2FB.

1. Propeller -- HIGH RPM.


2. Fuel Selector -- Fuller Tank.


3. Mixture Control -- IDLE CUTOFF.


4. Boost Pump -- ON.


5. Throttle -- OPEN 1/4 travel.


6. Ignition Switch -- BOTH.


7. Mixture Control -- Move slowly and smoothly to FULL RICH.


8. Re-establish cruise power and RPM, then lean mixture.

No bugs here.
