Engine seizes on climb out

Greetings folks,

 

I have had the Kurfurst for some time but only recently started flying it seriously & I have run into an issue when I cold start the aircraft. On climb out the engine seizes about 45sec into the flight.

 

I assume I am missing something in the start procedure but have read the manual a dozen times & watched several tut vids & I am certain I'm doing everything right yet when I climb out I am doing 1.2 Ata & looking at the gauges everything is normal when I hear a bang & the engine seizes.

 

Anyone have a idea what I am missing?

 

Many thanks for any assistance.

Thank you for the replies.

 

I have prop pitch on auto & I'm climbing out at 275-300kph.

 

If there was a problem with the engine you would think one of the gauges would show a problem but they don't. All gauges show normal temp or pressure.

Engine gone in a bang is not from overheating but something to do with inside pistons breaking,if I'm not mistaken. That's due to too high RPM. What is the RPM readout during your 1.2 ata climb?

Longknife, a track or video will help finding the problem.

Btw: i7-9xxx generation? And why 1200w psu?

any chance you go full throttle for take off, and forgot to enable MW50?;)

I'd suspect that as well. (also, the Rads are opened, and not fully closed).
