    You need to:

    1) Set hotkeys (they are default unassigned) for engine control. I have Ctrl 1, Ctrl 2, Ctrl 3, and Ctrl 4 for each engine (just in case I'm flying a TB-3 - in a Me262 or other two engined plane I just press Ctrl 1 and 2). Plus you need to set a select all engines (which I have as Ctrl 0).

    2) Start each engine manually and then select all engines and ensure that the throttle is at zero and that when you do engage the throttle its for both engines and not just one (a common mistake).

    And apply throttle very gently or you will set fire to an engine. On take-off do not exceed 85% power or you will also flame an engine.

    Apparently that's the way they performed in real life.
