newbie questions

Using RF 7.5, interlink USB, Win 10 64bit, Tx is Flysky FS-i10

1. For the Seawind, how do I get the retractable gear up and down? Default seems to be partially down.

2. On all models, how do I lower the default engine RPMs? On water, the Seawind & Cub move forward even with zero throttle.

3. Key 'K' kills the engine. Is there a way to un-kill or restart the engine?

Any and all help appreciated!

The seawind and cub on water are always going to move in water just like the real aircraft (i had a Cub on floats) at idle speed. This is normal for gas powered seaplanes as the motor is running and providing a tiny amount of thrust. Water is much easier to move through slowly than grass or pavement and there are no brakes in water.

You press the reset button to restart a gas motor. If you want to stop and restart the motor, switch the engine to an electric motor.
