Hi Guys,

Went to order unit through Superbuy however not impressed with their payment method & my bank here in Australia recommends not using the system they link to (Polipay).

I have Paypal, anyone been able to use this with Superbuy? I couldn't see a link.

Hi CPUWolf, tried to get back in touch via WeChat however became too difficult as it had dropped my password & security method to retrieve didn't work. Gave up with it eventually. Anyway saw the links here where to order QGMC710.

Edit: Just saw if I do a "top up" I can use Paypal or a credit card. Problem is I'm not sure of the shipping cost at this stage of the transaction. Certainly different.

.

hi Rossco,

At this moment, I can confirm superbuy.com is a  feasible way to buy.

Polipay? Alipay?  Alipay you don't know?

Chinese biggest biggest online payment system. if you have a chance, you should come to China having a look.  

you know wallet in China, just forget it... we hang out without it, zero cash.  what I have to take on ? only a smartphone. you can buy everything, really everything in China with smartphone. no cash country. that is how Alipay system works

you should take a look.

OMG! You're the best! Where can I buy it? <3

 

Edit: Does it work out of the box or is some kind of software required to make it work with XP11?

I want to buy this however the checkout system is not friendly. I am from the US and it doesn't have my bank. Just Western Union which is expensive. It also doesn't have shipping fee's listed. How much is shipping to the US/Texas?

Hi cpuwolf have sorted the problem by doing "topup" which allowed me to use Paypal (delayed time) or my own credit card. This was much easier however wasn't obvious at first.

My bank in Australia is very cautious & recommended not to use the payment method suggested by Superbuy. I wasn't too fussed about the app wanting me to log in to my bank via it either. Prefer to keep that very separate from any third party apps or programs. 

Did I read that Quikmake is away at present so delivery is delayed?

I found a way to use paypal however it requires me to add money to the account. What is the total cost of the unit plus shipping to the US/Texas.

Hi Kimchi, there is an app to give shipping estimates. They don't ask for payment for shipping till the product reaches the warehouse by the look of it & as cpuwolf pointed out Quickmake is away at the moment.

Hi cpuwolf, thanks for the quick reply. Do you know if that is for most of the month? Not in a mad rush just wondering.

Is it best to just order the product for the listed price and then pay for shipping later?

That is the only way to do it. Superbuy is a middle man/agent for buyers looking to purchase safely from China. You order the product. The seller ships it to the Superbuy warehouse. Superbuy inspects it and then allows you to choose a shipping method. They box it up and ship it to you. I chose DHL, and it was received in less than 5 business days. Shipping was about 25$ with a coupon. So you will have to buy it now, and pay for shipping later. Either way I had no major issues and it works perfect. I can even bind the same keys to other airplanes. Well worth it.

Well Quickmake was true to his name & my QGMC710 was delivered here in Australia yesterday. Thank you QM for your excellent service!

The unit looks fantastic & and all knobs & buttons have a great feel to them so hoping they will last quite a long time.

It has taken me some time to locate the files required & to install in to XPlane. The first link to Github would open the file but not download them. This one worked however https://github.com/quickmake/QGMC710/releases & I downloaded v2 zip file.

Anyway just to clear something up it appears the QGM files do not program the unit with the necessary  XPlane commands to operate the TBM900 is that correct?

I still have to find & allocate these myself? I thought with the files I installed into XPlane from the link that this would automatically be done for me. I'm not that familiar with XPlane to be honest so there may be something I have overlooked.

Really looking forward to using this as soon as I get it sorted.

Really impressed with the QGMC & find it a real joy to use when flying the TBM.

I do have a question though re the VS/FLC adjustment wheel. Is this only for either the VS or FLC or can it be programmed to work with either once they are selected? 

I see it's labeled for the VS in the programming menu however in the aircraft using mouse control it can be used for either VS or FLC IAS. I tried programming my Saitek panel to operate this previously however it didn't work very well.

after copy v2 all file into you x-plane, and load TBM9, then in joystick settings, on QGMC710 big picture left bottom side, there is a "reset to default". then it will be done

 

this hidden functionality few people know...hahaha

I didn't notice that. but logic is simple:

you are saying mouse control can be either VS or FLC IAS, how to control? only mouse middle scroll?(I will check) 

then if you assign UP/DOWN keys to TBM's designed UP/DOWN VS keys, then they will do the same thing, the mode switch handling will be done inside of  aircraft  code itself.

I don't know Rossco you have any programming background.

anyway I will investigate that

I just tried, as I  said, you have assigned wrong keys. please use "reset to default"

QGMC710 DN/UP keys can work as FLC IAS as expected in FLC mode

Hi cpuwolf, thanks for your help.

I had tried setting to default but when I did it showed all settings as "do nothing", hence my question as to whether the unit had default programming.

No I don't have any programming background but have done a lot of key programming functionality mainly with SPADneXt for my controllers & Saitek panels but wasn't sure which keys to use for the wheel. Will change the settings I have so it will be correct & try the set to default again after saving what I already have.

Again thanks for your help on this.

Well not sure what I'm doing wrong but reinstalled the files for control profiles & it reverted back to "do nothing" for all switches when I selected "reset to default" Including loses all my other controller settings for yoke, pedals & throttle.

Did have a backup of what I had done though.

Am having difficulty finding the commands for QGMC710 DN/UP. Can't find them in the TBM900 sub directory, can you advise where they are? Everything else I have found OK & appears to be working OK.

the sequence is very important here. you must load TBM900 firstly, then reset. or else you wont get it

plus, have you notice that my joystick profile is included in V2. try to use them directly.

 

I list then all

Hi Cpuwolf,

Thanks for this. I had done as you explained numerous times however the default would always delete any settings I had made & replace with "do nothing". Must have done something wrong somewhere.

Thanks for your list, I can now see the commands required for the wheel & will check the remainder off with what you have. 

I have a PFC Yoke & Throttles with MFG Xwind Pedals so manually changing the QGMC will be quicker for me than to re do all my flight control settings.

Thanks again!!

OH MY GOSH, Yes, that's definitely what I want! This is even better! I'll buy this in an instant. Once you provide an buy link, you can count on my money! I'm sold. I honestly can't wait, I fly in the 738 every day, this is what I needed!

Hi Cpuwolf & any others with QGMC710.

I appear to be having an issue with the FLC operation.

The scrolling wheel works perfectly when in VS mode however when I select FLC it becomes sporadic & the IAS jumps in large segments & usually eventually sets itself at 271kts & cannot be moved from there even if using the mouse.

I have reinstalled the TBM & confirmed my programming of the QGMC is the same as shown above however this issue still persists.

The QGMC is working correctly however I think maybe there is an issue with my software?

Appreciate any help.

B737 module looks great!

I was thinking though the biggest issue I now have with the TBM is controlling the G1000 with my mouse & keeping it positioned in the correct place to scroll through pages & change the range. Probably because I use TrackIR. Would be great if Quickmake would look at doing the controller for that. :-)

I did confirm it works. 

Button 24: tbm900/actuators/ap/nose_down
Button 25: tbm900/actuators/ap/nose_up

is it possible you had the wrong operation of FLC? can you record a video or something else that we can look at

 

for G1000 scroll page and change range, I bind these keys to my thrustmaster throttle switches. it works perfectly. you can think about it on your joystick. if you have thrustmaster A10 flight stick, you can use my profile file
