Recently I posted a question about taxiing the King Air and many readers were kind enough to suggest solutions. Among these were installing FSUIPC and various other fixes, most of which I tried. However, none of them were really completely satisfactory so I figured the problem might be self-generated and decided that when all else failed perhaps I should read the instructions. Sure enough Microsoft itself has provided the solution in the King Air manual with the wording on page 13 "Low idle is the condition for 98 percent of the King Air's operating range". Because I had been insisting on taxiing and flying at "High Idle" I had been causing much of my own problem (no matter what suggested fix I tried). Now I use, as recommended by the King Air handbook, CTRL+SHIFT+F2 to place the "Condition" levers in the "Low Idle" position (with the word LOW just showing above the handles) and my faith in Microsoft, your readers, and the elementary principle of following instructions, if all else fails, has been restored. Hopefully, by admitting my stupidity, this confession mmay help others avoid this problem.
