 +===== Random Failures ===== 
 + 
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​failures/​random-failures.png?​nolink|}} 
 + 
 +Beside triggering specific failures directly there is also an option to let FS-FlightControl generate random failures. 
 + 
 +Therefore first select all failures that should be included in the random failures. 
 + 
 +After that you can define the conditions when random failures may occur. The condition settings are the same as for the normal failure conditions above. 
 + 
 +For fuel leaks you can additionally define a range of fuel loss per minute. The exact value then will again be chosen randomly within the defined range. 
 + 
 +Finally you have to define the average number of failures that should occur per hour and the minimum time between two occurred random failure.
  
 +:i: Note: Keep in mind that failures number per hour is just an average value - everything is still random. You can also use decimal number (smaller than one) to get even less failures.
