        • Engine will sputter when overloaded for too long and if the fuel is too cold (-42°C)
        • ECUs will fail when the engine is failed.
        • Inverted flight will cause oil and fuel starvation 
        • Fuel temperature is simulated using simplified physics
        • Lower fuel quanitiy will cause higher fuel temps.
