    It was the Single engine Cessna with the issue. Not sure what “FI” is. The twin had no problems.

    David - I think "FI" they are referring to is Fuel Injection, no carb heat involved.

    That would make sense. It does have a fuel pump switch.

    I don't know, you are looking at it. Just another "head scratcher" I guess! I've had my share of them, I just canned a nice download because I was scratching my head, not getting anywhere!

    David - Just a thought, cowl flaps? Could you fly the flight again, making sure the cowl flaps are closed? I guess anything could be possible? I don't know anything about flying in cold air temps, especially as it applies to flight simulators?

    Let me know, you got me thinking now, and that only comes once-in-awhile!

    I know this model did not have cowl flaps. I’ll take a closer look. I’ll need to find the right conditions again. I’ll let you know
