Engine stall on FSX startup

Recommended Posts

Very new to FSUIPC so I know much info i gotten from forums.  After installing FSUIPC I built up specific profiles for each of my aircraft.  I have noticed on my Carenado C208 Cargomaster  it will shut down after I startup FSX.  I adjust the throttle, prop and mixture and hit Ctrl+E for a start but nothing happens.  I have it set to be ready to fly so should have engine running and ready to go.  I have rechecked all buttons and axis setting and it appears to be right.  I am sure I might have over looked something in setup.  Most other planes will continue to run after starting FSX.  I use saitek Pro Flight Yoke system and extra throttle quadrant. I have marked the throttle and set levers where they are supposed to be. 

Thanks for any help you guys can give.

FSUIPC doesn't do anything on its own, only what you ask for to do it.

Make sure you have all needed things active that the engine can run:

- available fuel in tanks
- tank selector correct set
- mixture to max
- Engine Fuel Valve open

In case most other aircrafts, I guess default ones, work correct it will have to do with standard setting you use that will not work in that add-on aircraft.

Can you physically see that really all function in the profile are working correct in the cockpit of the aircraft? Add-on aircrafts very often don't use standard FS controls but there own programmed logic.

I would recommend to remove the profile settings for the C208 and put them back one after each other to see which one causes the problem.
