A-4F SuperFox

ground start:
if orange start light is lit, press down the starter button behind the throttle
click the side of the throttle once to bring it to second stage starter (?)
once engine rpm reaches above 20% rpm, click the throttle again to bring it to idle

important:
if you bring the throttle to idle below 20% rpm, you need to let the engine run at 15% (put throttle back to off position) for ~30 sec to empty out unburnt fuel from the engine

also important:
clicking the throttle acts like a two-stage toggle switch. it takes two clicks to bring it from off to idle, and two more from idle to off

airstart:
click the throttle to the mid position, air starting is only possible above 380 knots indicated (jokes on you you have no electric power so you dont know what your airspeed is lol)
once engine rpm reaches above 20% rpm, click the throttle again to bring it to idle

important:
there is a 10 second grace period after spawning that allows the gear to be raised for airstarting after air spawning

i dont make any picures in the desdripdeno

    Decent build but it could use real hollow landing gear wells at minimum. That is an extremely easy feature to make nowadays and should be the new standard.

    @BaconEggs Thanks for clarifying! And amazing level of simulation you built into this one. Really enjoyable to fly!

    @Krikkit42 slat departures in this a4 only consistently happen when transitioning to lower speeds from around 400 or so
    aileron deflection at high alpha causes the plane to slip to the opposite direction and it reverses the roll & a4 is pretty prone to that

    @OrderlyHippo It could be wonky at slow speeds, but a very specific reason: Sometimes the slats (leading-edge flaps) would deploy asymmetrically, resulting in weird, adverse flight characteristics, like auto-rolling or rolling and bumping in the wrong direction, especially at high angle of attack maneuvers. When the Blue Angels flew the Skyhawk, they locked the slats at the fully retracted position in order to lower the risk of losing control of the airplane.

    Wow this is so good I can’t even turn on the engine until I know how to start a real plane’s engine lol. The handling in flight seems a bit wonky at low speeds. Is it like that in real life?
