I got the windmill start to work but it did something a bit odd. The magnetos were both on but I had to click on one of them and only then would the engine start running. The switch position were still the same before and after (on position) but clicking on one of them "did something". However the aircraft cannot be started on the ground using a GLUT build. Rebuilding with SDL fixed the problem so it looks like Melchior may be right. When I fired the starter the property stayed "true" for as long as I held the key down. Oddly enough the 172 starts just fine using glut. Paul ___________________________________________________________ALL-NEW Yahoo!
