How to brake.

Recommended Posts

New to the TBM, and following the tuturials, 

Releasing the park brakes is no problem ...  but i can't apply brakes.

I don't have rudder pedals,

I went into the xplane key bindings and set the B key to toggle brakes regular. You could also set a key or joystick button to toggle maximum or press to hold for braking action. 

If you have a driving sim setup you can also use the driving pedals as right and left toebrakes.

Hi Dartofdoom,

 

Ok thanks, i will try this tonight.

 

Her is what i got from the X-Plane.org forum :

I do not have the TBM 900. So I cannot test it now. But from my knowledge Saso (Totoritko, the main developer) has implemented the braking system as it is in the real plane. Which means you need to apply the toe brakes to enable the parking brake then. With a small knob below the pilot yoke. As it is typical in a Socata. Since the parking brake is only an extra valve which "hold" the pressure you applied through the toe brakes. But if this is true and there is no option in the plane to "simulate" an easy approach then you need to use pedals or a script, which simulates the toe brakes. I am using the latter approach since I have also no pedals. For this I have a FlyWithLua script (https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/37662-differential-and-progressive-brakes-for-x-plane-11/). With this script I can assign a key or button to a function, which applies a progressive pressure to both toe brakes. I cannot life without this script now :D

Apparently this plane was designed for use with rudder pedals, using it w/o them causes several issues...

Actually I don’t have rudder pedals nor do I use scripts.  I simply mapped a button on my joystick and have had zero issues.
