TWIN ENGINE AERODYNAMICS
A twin engine model flies no differently than a single
engine model - as long as both engines are properly
tuned and as long as both engines stay running! But -
sooner or later, you will lose an engine. I ask you, how
often do you lose an engine on your single engine
models? You’ll lose one twice that often on a twin!
If you lose an engine on a twin, there will be a directional
control problem! If the right engine fails, the left engine will
pull the nose of the aircraft to the right. On a full size aircraft
you use rudder to control the yaw and carefully control the
airspeed with the remaining engine. Do not use the rudder
on this DC-3 if an engine quits. Flying at too slow an
airspeed with one engine at full power could exceed the
ability of the control surfaces to control the yaw.
Ki pravi, da ne smemo uporabljati smernega krmila ob "izgubi" motorja.

TWIN ENGINE TRAINING
Your Top Flite DC-3 represents a substantial investment
in time and money. For that reason, I suggest that you
start your multi-engine training with a model that you
won’t be so emotionally involved with. Get a Hobbico
TwinStarTM for your training. It’s an ARF and will go
together in a couple of weekends. It is an excellent twin
engine trainer. It will save some serious knee knocking
time verses risking your Top Flite DC-3 and, it’s
inexpensive. Use the same engines on it that you will
use on your DC-3 so that you may thoroughly break
For additional information on how to handle your DC-3
in an engine out situation, refer to the “Engine Out”
