    Oh gosh Tom Scott, and awesome funny friends, you should add a content warning at the start of your videos as this is the third video in a row to make me laugh so much I see stars. Love you vids BTW! 😂😂😂

    So, a tachometer in a plane works almost identically to those in road vehicles, measuring the revolutions per minute in parts of the mechanism. Neither of them measure distance like Gary said. Why did Tom agree with that? Distance in cars and the like is measured by an odometer.

    • mspenrice

      It's an engine hours meter. Aircraft engines generally keep a steady-ish rpm when in level cruising flight, much like travelling on a motorway with cruise control turned on. You throttle up somewhat to climb, and particularly take off, but this is usually compensated for by throttling back to descend and land. So by measuring how many total rotations the engine has turned through (which, yes, is more like an odometer, but it's considered "tach time" rather than distance because the counter is attached to the propshaft rather than the wheels/speedometer) and dividing that by the recommended cruising revs, you get a rough but good-enough idea of how long the plane's been aloft for.
      Similar systems are used on marine and stationary engines (and probably diesel-electric locomotives?) to determine how long they've been in use, when they need servicing, how much usage to charge for if they're rented out, etc, and for the same reasons that you can't easily measure distance (or there's no distance to measure), and as the only thing that really matters is how many revolutions the engine's done and/or the load placed on it (which in an ungeared system such as running a generator, or turning a propeller), you may as well just assume it's in top gear all the time and work directly off the revs.
      And you do after all perform a limited version of this with road vehicles, by shortening the service intervals if they're generally used for low speed stop-start work (where you're often in low gear and so the engine turns more per mile travelled) or otherwise put under unusual strain... Indeed I think the automatic service reminder lights/messages in modern cars have at least an element of (unstated, unreadable) tach time to them, which is why they can end up coming on rather earlier (and seemingly randomly so) than the stated ideal service intervals in the handbook.

    Most piston engine aircraft still use magnetos to generate the spark. Hence, you can fly them with all electrical systems off. Moreover, many instruments are pressure-driven, so you still get nearly all of the instruments, save for navigation. It's actually not as unsafe as it sounds. The plane's designed to be safe to land in case of total electrical failure.

      I had a problem with the voltage regulator on my aeroplane a while back, so I'd fly around with the master switch off to save the battery, so I could start it again to get home. The only real problem was that I nearly gave myself a heart attack every time I looked at the fuel gauges and they both read empty before realising I'd got the power turned off.

      mspenrice 1 Aircraft engines have 2 magnetos each for redundancy
      2 the ability to shut off the magnetos is needed to crank the engine without starting
      3 if you turn that switch of irl, your engine stops

    • mspenrice

      If I remember how it went in the old Microsoft Flight Simulator (v2.0, on our Atari...), the mags were mainly used for starting the engine (where all battery power would go to the starter, not the spark plugs - with mags being feature I've wished for with automotive engines before when the battery has only been strong enough to turn the engine over but not make a spark off its own back) and as backups in case of the otherwise ordinary alternator (and/or battery) failing. The program, having only the one fixed dashboard to save on memory, allowed you to set magnetos as "on" for left, right, or both (as well as off completely) engines even on a single engine plane, but most of the time you could turn them off and see no difference in performance, as it defaulted to starting you with a running engine and no faults unless you specifically set it to be different.
      Presumably over-using them risks them wearing out, or wastes fuel / doesn't make as good a spark or something, so you wouldn't want to turn them on unless absolutely necessary. Because I don't know why you wouldn't just leave both turned on permanently otherwise. Like with the carb heater feature which didn't seem to do much in-game in normal conditions, but I expect might reduce engine power IRL in high ambient temperatures, as well as draining the battery or loading up the alternator, despite being fairly vital to prevent it icing up at high altitudes or in winter.
      I mean, I'm not an aeronautical expert, that's just something I remember from an old game. But I don't get why you'd be able to turn them off if they weren't essentially an optional backup and meant the engine(s) didn't run as well (or at least as efficiently) as when using the alternator... but of course running poorly is better than not running at all, if the main system has failed.
      Incidentally, I wasn't aware that there were any electrically driven instruments in a traditional aircraft panel, other than maybe the VOR beacon indicators, and the radio of course. They'd have been electrically lit (again with switchable lights, to avoid burning out bulbs unnecessarily) so reading them at night with failed electrics could be a problem if you didn't have a backup torch to point at the dash, and a lot have now been replaced with "glass cockpit" LCD (or even CRT) displays, but a trad altimeter works off air pressure, engine tachometer works off a cable driving a magneto-esque thing (as per old car speedometers) driving the needle progressively harder against a coil spring the faster the cable turns, airspeed indicator in much the same way connected to a turbine device in the pitot tube, the compass is, well, a compass (with a low-friction mechanism converting the horizontal readout to a vertical display), and the false-horizon pitch/bank indicator is a simple (but maybe gyro stablised?) thing with a heavy weight attached to the bottom of the painted ball. All nice and mechanical :)
      (though I can't quite figure out the descent/ascent rate indicator, not that I recall the game showing such a thing, so perhaps it's not something you get on low end planes... still, I imagine an analogue version could work similar to the tach and speedo, just with the drive being somewhat geared up, and/or a rather weaker pair of springs driving it to the centre position, so it would give a useful indication without the altimeter needle having to spin rapidly)
      Of course, it's rather harder to provide a readout for the fuel tank, oil pressure, oil/coolant temperature, and naturally voltage, but I have a feeling if your electrics quit on you those wouldn't be considered so important any more as you concentrated more on finding somewhere to land as soon as possible rather than working out how much longer you could cruise for on the remaining fuel, or if running at full throttle was about to overheat the engine...
