<SPAN lang=EN>Iím trying to tweek the cfg file in fs9 for a commercial Cessna skymaster to more closely reflect the performance of the Riley Super Skyrocket conversion. Iím tweeking the file for my own use.
I needed to change the performance of the a/c to match real world values, which have much higher rates of climb and cruise speed and take off performance. I have adjusted several of the piston engine and flight values in the cfg and have flight tested the a/c through several adjustments and have achieved the proper performance.
//power_scalar=1.0 //Piston power scalar
power_scalar=1.5 //Piston power scalar
//cylinder_displacement=60.0 //Cubic inches per cylinder
cylinder_displacement=80.0 //Cubic inches per cylinder
compression_ratio=7.5 //Compression ratio
number_of_cylinders=6 //Number of cylinders
//max_rated_rpm=2800.0 //Max rated RPM
max_rated_rpm=2500.0 //Max rated RPM
//max_rated_hp=210.0 //Max rated HP
max_rated_hp=310.0 //Max rated HP
fuel_metering_type=0 //0=Fuel Injected, 1=Gravity Carbureter, //2=Aerobatic Carbureter
AS I see it, the only problem is that the prop control is not working as usual. At a high cruise MP setting of 32, the RPM registered 3074 where set previously. When I adjust the prop there is no gradual change, the prop lever simply is pulled back with no change in the RPM, until finally the prop is feathered and I have to immediately increase the prop pitch to keep flying.
