    When #1 Engine in Do335 is missing (IE broken/fallen off), when you go to eject the #2 engine falls off, but the #1 engine goes to full power, even though no engines are currently working. You create thrust and gain airspeed from the #1 engine.

    In my opinion going full power on a #1 engine when you bail out is a bad idea...if anything it should go throttle to IDLE. Because power at IDLE is not going to balance out the forces of lift thrust wt drag.

    Mayb e they can fix it so the #1 engine when its broken off does not work anymore when you eject?

    to test this theory, Simply have a friend pull up in front of you with his Do335 and smack the two noses together have him despawn and you fly off...then eject and note what i am talking about.

    After ejection the power is set to what was set by youself in this case.

    It's not #1 reving up, it's the rear one, because the propeller drag is gone . You don't drop the whole engine, just the prop.

    That's what it is, once the prop is gone the engine overrevs.
