Hello everyone the problem that I am having is every time I start the engines on the ATR The Turbine speed shoots to max here is the procedure that I have followed

1. Bat Switch to on, next I activate External power for both the plane and the AC wild system, next I switch fuel pump power 1 to on. next I activate the starter selector to A+B, then I select engine starter switch 1, I then monitor the turbine spinning to 10 percent then I finally switch the engine CL to Feather to introduce fuel. This is where the problem is the Turbine like I said shoots to max before settling to its normal range. I have seen several startup videos where this is not the case any help on this matter would be gladly appreciated.

1- make sure you connected the external power (DC) and selected it in the overhead panel. No need for ACW. Sometimes, starting on battery only can lead to low start and hi temperature.
2- Check that PL are on Ground Idle position before start.
