TBM 900

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

received and installed the TBM 900 yesterday and wanted to fly today. First attemt was approach 10 nm from runway. Result: Plane acted like a glider without engine running. Was turning very slow. Result: crash

2 attemt: wanted to star from runway with engine running  Plane broke down and started burning. What is wrong with that? 

I am very disappointed

Bye, Rolf

This aircraft is not one that you can start with engine running, or do the selection for an approach from the menus.

The intended purpose of this product is to treat it like a real aircraft. If you leave a battery running when you leave X-Plane, and open the plane again days later, expect a dead battery. Same applies to virtually every other aspect.

Your expectations should be real world and not virtual world when it comes to this product.

The manuals are a good start!

It’s so satisfying to learn to operate that plane close to the real thing. I printed the manual and watched some very good video tutorials. It’s not that hard. You will like it.

Thank you very much. I'm glad I could solve the problem myself. Only had to create a new airframe and after that could start her like in the tutorial which I have seen so often that I could do it by heart. This was good fun. Have to get used to the plane now cause everything happens pretty fast. Really enjoyed the flying.

Hi Cameron,

saw a Video from Totoritko himself the other day. Much to my surprise he set the TBM 900 on a 10 NM Approach and thus left me confused.

Regards, Rolf
