I fly the C172 but when I go full throttle for takeoff I get good static RPM but very little thrush. Brakes are not applied. No failure scenarios active. I can't lift off without stalling.

Hi, did you try to delete your prefs files, see if it solves the problem?

Oh you are a genius!!! Thank you so much! I have been so frustrated over this. Wonderful result from deleting prefs.

Sounds like resetting to default preferences fixed it. Another option if something "inexplicable" happens again is to rename or move the preferences folder. If that fixes it, you can compress & send the old, broken prefs via the bug reporter for us to investigate further.
