Oil shutters?

Post by zachenbacher » 16 Jul 2013, 19:58

Hey guys,

could you please explain me what exactly the oil shutters are good for? I think they should controll the cooling of the oil. But where are they in the airplane? And is that oil cooling actually simulated? I can't see any visual or internal reaction (apart from the position gauge) when I use them in the cockpit.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the link!

But did I get that right the oil shutters are integrated in the engine? There's no animation etc. in the model?

The oil shutters are on the back of the oil cooler which hangs on the bottom of the cowling under the engine. They are animated as well.
