Bones

Many thanks to you and others for advice, Making my flight experiance more varied.

I still do not think the condition lever are doing their job, could be I am still on high idle, as evident with the high taxi speed.

I have a payware Dash 8 for FS9, and bringing the levers down makes a difference, taxi speed is controllable with throttles only, on the ident the Dash stops without brakes.

Will have a look through the AC config file and see if I can spot it.

Looking better. If you can keep fuel burn down to those figures it should
give you a 6.1hr endurance which is roughly a 1500nm range.

Note: for power levers on 1400, they are on the bottom Ident, not tried
pulling right down to feather

Idle levers on low for TO and cruise and descent, on high for landing

Many thanks for instruction and advise, much appreciated, results will be
logged.

Will now go for the long trip 800-1000nm, and see how the fuel burn stacks
up.
