    Default Cessna 152 won't start

    I cannot start the plane all of a sudden. Fuel mixture is set to 100 percent (all the way in). I prime the engine, click on start. The prop turns for a bit and then quits. I've set the plane for unlimited fuel, so the tank's not dry. I noticed something weird going on when I trying to practice landings. I'd take off, full throttle, and the plane just died. I've checked my throttle quadrant controls; plenty of responsiveness there. Anybody have an idea what might be causing this. It's new.

    What method are you using to start the aircraft?

    Have you tried ctrl+e?

    Fuel valve open? located between pilot and passenger seat, near the front floor.

    The problem isn't the plane. It all of a sudden, it seems to be with TrackIR. I "flew" without it, just using the hat switch and everything worked. Then I tried to take off with TrackIR, and the engine died. Weird.

    Seems that your Track IR has a lot to answer for.
