Default Restarting the Yak.

Has anyone else had this problem? Restarting the Yak after shutting down the engine? That is to say, returning to C&D, then trying to start up again. I've not yet managed it. Have to get a new plane.

If you can walk away from a landing, it's a good landing. If you use the airplane the next day, it's an outstanding landing. "Chuck Yeager"

Didnt you managed a Good landing ? :-D

I obviously haven't explained it very well. I'll try again. I have landed, very nicely. Taxied to the ramp and turned off my engine whilst I waited for a friend to join the server. Friend arrives and I attempt to restart the engine. Which it will not do!
How's that?


EDIT: No fool like an old fool. First ensure that the pneumatic system knob is rotated fully aft.

would it turn over? maybe air supply was depleted. flaps and gear need to be in neutral position, they leak air, I'm pretty sure I have restarted before, I will check when I get home.

The engine starter is pneumatic, which means it requires air pressure. Air pressure in the canister is expended by doing multiple engine starts and operating the flaps and landing gear. When you can't restart the aircraft, what's the air pressure indication you have?

It was my understanding that the air pressure wasn't effective right now (the air never goes down).

Or is it working ?
