I've designed an electric aircraft with planemaker. Everything works fine except when I fly inverted after certain amount of time and certain manouvers in inverted flighty the engine loses power. When rolling back to normal flight attitude power of the engine kicks back in. Since it is an electric engine things like gasoline pendel in fueltanks should not make any impact.

Probably there is a checkbox in planemaker but i just can't figure out where or what it is.

Anybody experienced something similar?

Best regards

Hello guys,

Just found out which checkbox I have to select so motor does not cut power when having negative G.

Planemaker: Expert -> Special Equipment -> Equipment Options -> inverted fuel and oil systems equipped

Yes even when having an electric motor you have to check this box.
