    Folks, I need to address this before it get's too much for us. I've been bombarded with PM's on Facebook, posts on Facebook, PM's on discord, a sprinkling of posts on reddit and forum posts here. Mostly from people just trying to help us with logs and feedback, but unfortunately there have been a few negative ones. So here it is. We are aware of the new CTD's with the TBM and 11.32. We were told 11.32 was going to fix the CTD's that were occurring with 11.31. This is obviously not the case. I did mention in my original post to hold off on updating if you are still on 11.30. We are doing our best in handling the support and staying visible in the community, and we would appreciate it if you are experiencing these CTD's, to not make any further posts about it. We know you only want to help, but when we get new notifications about a CTD and the Flight Plan key on the FMS, it takes time away from other support questions. On to the good news. A working update is ready to ship. It has been tested and all is good. It just needs to be packaged, and that'll be done in the next couple of days. We ask that you just please be a little more patient, and you'll be flying this sweet aircraft again very soon. Apologies if this post comes across as somewhat confronting, (It's not meant to) but it is now 3:20am, and I've spent most of the day helping toto with support...so I'm a little frazzled. We very much appreciate your understanding. For any other support related questions (not pertaining to the FMC and 11.32), please feel free to post! Cheers!

    Version 2.2.0.VR


    P.180 Avanti II for X-Plane 11 - CURRENT VERSION: 2.2.0.VR (uploaded at: 11:00Z February 25th, 2019) NOW VR COMPATIBLE with the help of SimVRLabs! NEW DOWNLOAD OPTIONS - !!! READ BELOW !!! OPTION 1: If you already have the Avanti or any X-Aviation product (you should already have the Gizmo plugin installed in your X-Plane installation - check for Gizmo.plugin in X-Plane 11/Resources/plugins/ folder) Download only the file : "P_180_Avanti_II.zip". Unzip it in your Aircrafts folder. You are good to go! Enjoy your flight! OPTION 2: You haven't the previous version of the Avanti (2.1.0) or any X-Aviation product. Download both files. Run the "P_180_Avanti_Installer.zip". This will install both Gizmo and the previous version of the Avanti. Then you can replace the previous version with the current. NOTE: If you get a pop window to ask you for login details, you do not have to enter anything, just close the window, and the aircraft will work fine. SUPPORT P180 Avanti development: PAYPAL OFFICIAL SUPPORT: Official Bug tracker: https://bitbucket.org/iliastselios/p180_avanti/issues?status=new&status=open Support Forums: DESCRIPTION: As you might already know this aircraft is based on X-Plane's default P.180 Avanti , originally designed for X-Plane 8, was included in X-Plane 9, and from that point has been overhauled to Avanti II version. This is aircraft is totally FREE! It is a "return" to the X-Plane community that supported us those last 4 years that we exist as a development team! This aircraft main features are: High quality visuals, cockpit all new 3D model and textures, including PBR materials. Simulated: a. startup and shutdown procedures b. engine controls and operations c. autopilot controls and operations d. partially operation of the electrical, pneumatic, hydraulic, fuel systems. Emulation of Proline 21 avionics suite. Currently there is only one layout that will allow you to operate the aircraft in all scenarios. Many improvements will come in the future. Installation in the 3D cockpit of the default X-Plane 11 FMC. Improved flight characteristics. Internal custom lighting. Of course Avanti development is not stopping here! Actually the overall development will be continuous, and the aircraft will always be in beta stage. Updates and upgrades will be available frequently! Main planned future upgrades are: Adding more functionallity to Proline 21 avionics suite, heading from an emulation to a simulation. Custom NAV maps. Custom FMC. Fully simulation of all systems. New 3D model from ground up. Improved flight model. Avanti EVO. Special thanks to: Austin Meyer for giving his permission to use parts of the Avanti on this project and X-Plane by Laminar Research that gave us this magnificent simulator! The team that originally developed Avanti for X-Plane, Robert Pearson (aerodynamics), Massimo Durando (cockpit & 3D cockpit), and Javier rollon (External Model. JRollonPlanes www.jrollon.com) for his fantastic 3D work. @Hueyman for the propeller 3D model and the prop disc images. Ben Russell of Gizmo64 for his support and that made available to us that powerful tool (aka Gizmo), and Cameron Son of X-Aviation for the support. And of course X-Plane community for the interest in that project and patient to wait to be realized!

    Saab v1.5.2 will have all new manipulators, new engine modeling, and some other updates/fixes. It is being worked on as we speak and will be released "VERY SOON"®. Saab v2.0 will be a complete overhaul and is planned for the "NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE"®.

    I think the underlying message is that the team is busy with various family and professional commitments and that any form of commitment or projection of future plans for release are likely to setup expecations within the community that might not be fully met as life unfolds. It's better to publish the feature list contained in an update, and a date of availability for the update, when the update is actually ready to publish. This keeps expectations and promises more realistic. The community also needs to bear in mind that while some key members of the team are busy with high profile obligations their pre-existing products have been supported in the market for 10 years with free updates. The IXEG project was purely self driven with no funding at all for five years before release. The technologies it relies on are created and maintained by myself, and I've been in the X-Plane arena for nearly 15 years. In short: "Reports of IXEG's death are greatly exagerrated."

    Hi, When using the vSpeed callout script listed below, you have to set the speedbugs yourself. My little script reads the V speed values from the CDU and sets the speedbugs for you. Just put my script in the same folder as the vSpeed script...

    I think you need to calm down. The TBM was thoroughly tested for more than 6 months with various streamers, and we haven't stopped working on updates since day 1. We finally had a stable release (with the exception of a few CTD's that were backtraced to XP11) until X Plane 11.31 came out, and from the moment we received the very first CTD report, Saso has been working on fixing it. He has a small group of testers making sure the next update is working with 11.31 before it goes final. Before you jump to harsh conclusions, it might serve you well to read the other posts in this forum. Calling us incompetent will not get you the update any faster.

    Guys, friends, Nasa boffins, I have flown every sim since 1985 (I'm 43), Tomahawk, DI Tornado, Gunship all FS series, FSX to death and now XP11 and DCS. I switched to XP11 only because of the IXEG release. I can say that this is the best aircraft out there for immersion, physics, atmosphere etc. Those things are not easy to program, but they are there in abundance. I will admit, I got interested in Zibo, tried it and can honestly say that it's a freeware plane with lots of bells and whistles, but the base is freeware, you feel that and you see it every time you look up at that overhead panel. IXEG is payware, you feel it more than anything and you see it, obviously some bells and whistles are missing, and some VNAV things need improved, but we are flying a classic, things will be broken on classics that are flying today, the shortfalls in this model make you a better pilot in my opinion! I look forward to future updates, free or paid, and wish the developers good luck, and ask them kindly to checkin with any tiny bit of news to keep our heads up

    I was just wondering to see after a year without an update, that there is one going to be coming along? Am not stating that the development is dead, am just asking for a bit of information on when we can expect a next update (maybe Q1, Q2 this year?)... Thanks!

    I mean basics from a viewpoint of a sim-pilot. If it is that difficult to implement, why not informing us that you just cannot do it or whatever the exact reason is. Because after years it's not just about patience, it seems that there is something wrong somewehere, but for us customers it's not clear where the problem exactly is. So i would really appreciate a clear statment / communication about further development. Or perhaps i missed it, since i don't visit that forum very often? I really said nothing during years but now it begins to be just too long and i'm questionning if we will see a completed aircraft one day. I'm sure you can understand that.

    first edition MCP/GMC710 of G1000 is on ....the way sorry guys, we don't have link so far, first edition we made five, and at the moment they are under testing. https://www.bilibili.com/video/av37257957 Host side software is not mandatory, but it will definitely improve user experience because rotation acceleration is implemented on host PC side more important is software is open source, it is written in Lua. you need FlyWithLua installed on X-Plane https://github.com/quickmake/QGMC710 although QGMC710 is born for Hotstart TBM-900, it is not limited to TBM-900. it is plug-and-play USB HID device like your keyboard. so it supports all aircraft you can imagine, and it supports not only for X-Plane, DCS, P3D, FSX etc should work fine as well

    Version 1.0.0


    Freely inspired by the Canada Search and Rescue liveries... Don't hesitate if you spot a glitch somewhere !

    Hello All, This will serve as a formal forum announcement that we have released the version 1.1.6 update for the TBM 900. All customers who have purchased the TBM 900 up till now have been sent an e-mail by X-Aviation with complete instructions on how to obtain your update. We have made this a very simple process! For those that purchase the TBM 900 from today forward, your purchased download will already be updated to version 1.1.6 for you. What if I didn't get the update e-mail? If you did not receive your update e-mail don't fret! X-Aviation has updated our system to allow all customers to update with ease, regardless of whether you received an e-mail for the update! Here's what to do: 1. Login to your X-Aviation account here: https://www.x-aviation.com/catalog/account_history.php 2. Find your original TBM 900 download and re-download the file. It will download as the latest version! The following is a list of additions/fixes included: What's New / Changed: Improvements / New Features: Implemented new LOC guidance code to work around the need to set CDI to front course. Implemented YD phaseout with airspeed. Added multi-threaded rendering support for synthetic vision. SYN VIS should now be much cheaper on performance. New rain effects using async compute. Available only on Windows & Linux. Mac gets the old rain effect. Implemented the "Vertical track" audio message. Made SYN VIS horizon headings more readable by adding darker outline. Redesigned steering force control logic to better handle centering forces. Bugfixes: Steering had a confusing delay on it, which made for difficult directional control. Turning on NAV or STROBE lights should disable red wingtip beacons. Overspeed should come on at 269 KIAS and turn off at 268 KIAS. Reverse numbers should be 27-35 trq, 1850 rpm, Ng 85%. Gear manual extension rates were incorrect. WXR-related crash during resumption of previously interrupted flight. "FMS LFE" should be automatic upon FPL entry on the ground. Pushing Go-Around should put the HSI back into GPS mode. Replaced aural_warn_test and gear_warn recordings with cleaner samples. Implemented OVERSPEED aural message. Force the avionics_on dataref to 1. When we had the A/P override set, unset it if the CDI mode changes. SYN VIS north horizon heading should be 360 and sub-100 headings shouldn't have a leading '0'. SYN VIS airport loading could fail sporadically, resulting in missing runways. SYN VIS old method of computing airport label placement was broken. AIRAC cycle 1904 was mislabeled as 1304. Make sure GL_BLEND is enabled, because in X-Plane windowing context it sometimes isn't. Bezel drawing didn't work in popped-out windows due to X-Plane swapping in a different OpenGL context. X-Plane 11.32r2 seems to have broken our Vertex Array Object processing, so we have to work around that. As always, thanks for being a customer with X-Aviation. We appreciate your feedback and support! Enjoy these latest updates, and stay tuned to the forum as we continually announce the latest happenings.

    I am so extremely disappointed about that project. It started very promising. Now i know why P3D-users always make fun of us...

    As of yesterday, Saso and Ben Supnik have been in touch, via a developer chat in Slack, to see what is going on, and determining what will be done. If another X-Plane update comes out, and it breaks the TBM update because of Laminar fixing the original issue, then it's back to square one. There are also a few issues with an unrelated issue with the Mac version of the TBM, which Saso is working hard at getting sorted out. That has been the reason for the delay. When I know more about what Laminar are going to do, I'll post back here. Ben is currently waiting for a bug report from Saso that will be done within the next 12-24 hours.

    Perspective is also important. How much did you spend on groceries last time you shopped? How much does it cost to fill your car? The amount of fuss people make about the cost of software products with free updates lasting years relative to the other expenses in life would be laughable if it wasn't so depressing.

Simply place the folder "Delta Liveries - Pure Metal v1.0" into the liveries folder of your Flightfactor A320 Liveries folder 2. That's it...easy right? NOTES : I'd say for the first time ever for one of my liveries, PLEASE READ THIS! :Delta - A disclaimer on registration fonts. This livery comes pre-installed with a registration... which uses a different font than provided for accuracy. The reason why I cannot insert the exact font is due to licensing issues. I cannot distribute a commercial font. The version of Galactic Vanguardian provided... is the non-commercial variant and is appropiate for distribution. Please keep this in mind if you decide to apply your own livery. - This livery is based on a TBM 850 livery... and is technically fictional. You've been warned. The registration is already pre-made, but you can use the existing registration editor to tailor the livery to your liking! Version Notes --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- + Special thanks to Cessnarox for the paintkit, and my congratulations to Totoritko and Goran for an amazing aircraft + This is a highly extensive and customised livery. + All chrome PBR application + Custom heat discolouration + Normals remade to make leading edges (de-ice boots) more glossy + Custom tinted windows + Custom dirt + Custom window trim Creative rights go to Delta_Who.

    Literally 30 minutes ago, Saso sent me a build to test. I have 3 X-Plane installations on my PC, and I tried the latest test build on 2 of them. Vanilla 11.32 and stable 11.31 with multiple aircraft and plugins installed. (My 3rd one is 11.30) The update works on 11.31, but it CTD's on 11.32 with no plugins installed. Unfortunately, this means a minor delay until he can figure out what is going on with 11.32. It's a very unusual crash, as the log doesn't report any errors. Everything loads fine, and then CTD. Like X-Plane is just saying "Nah, Not today. I'm tired!" Will keep you posted.

    As a rule of thumb, this works quite nice: For a 3° descent path angle, subtract your target altitude from your current altitude, drop the zeros and multiply by 3. If you're flying at 27000 ft and need to descent to 3000 ft, this would be 27000 - 3000 = 24000 drop the zeros = 24 24 x 3 = 72 So you start your descent 72 nm before your target waypoint. (you can always add a few miles for safety) To figure out what vertical speed you need roughly for the 3° angle: Multiply your groundspeed in kts by 5. 280 kts would make a 1400 ft vertical speed. Quite easy and works for any plane.

    Hello everyone, I just bought into XP11 a couple days ago for the sole purpose of flying this aircraft. I operate TBMs on a near daily basis. I work with and fly them for a living, from the original 700A, B and C models, all the way to the nice and fancy 930s. So I’ve got a lot of time operating 900s. I’m a bit of a perfectionist, which helps when working in aviation maintenance and I’ve put this sim through its paces. As a result, I’ve got a lot to offer, I suppose, in trying to help make this great aircraft, greater. To preface all of this, I have no knowlege of creating and modeling and programming anything like what these people have created, I’m not at all saying any of this maliciously. Nothing is in any particular order of seriousness. ITT on start is both too high and too fast. ITT will always peak between 30-37 percent NG. After peak ITT, the temp will always decrease to your normal Low Idle temps. When the secondary fuel nozzles start spitting fuel in, approaching 50% NG, there is not another ITT surge. For example, my average start at 5600 msl, thin air, on a 30 degree day will never hit 800 ITT unless we are out doing a prop balance and starting up repeatedly. Power on red flashing lights should not flash when either or both the nav or strobe lights are on. Talking about the red LEDs on either wingtip that are on when power is applied to the aircraft. Once either strobe or nav lights are on, both of those will no longer flash until both are off. FMS LFE should always automatically input LFE of destination airport, so long as a flight plan is entered in the G1000. Having to go to the system page and pressing “FMS LFE” should not be necessary. Manual override in flight is completely broken. Per the Daher Maint. Manual, the in flight test of the manual override lever is to bring the power lever to 40% Trq, then slowly bring in the manual override until but NOT EXCEEDING 100% Trq. There is initial transparency with the override, essentially catching up to where the power is set already. I did this and nothing happened until about the last inch of travel, and the engine essentially exploded the very instant the override introduced fuel. Power lever limitations past FL260, full power lever travel is not providing proper power. It how has enough to make the climb and cruise bugs only. Realisticly, you should never actually be able to use full travel without overtorqueing or overtemping. Cruise ITT is too high, example, flew from CO to CA today in sim, FL280 OAT of -44. With trq set to the bug, 98 percent, the sim ITT was sitting at 812. I just had a flight a couple days ago at the same altitude but at -43 oat. ITT in that profile will consistently sit at 780. In this instance the NG was also too high. Showing 101.7 if I remember right. Whereas Normally, you should be around 100.2 NG No “Overspeed, Overspeed” warning at VMO. Warning always comes on at exactly 269 IAS and always extinguishes at 268 IAS. Right Gear inner door seems to be clipping when gear is up and locked. Exposing tire. **HEAVILY OPINIONATED** I dont like the AOA indicator. In actual TBMs it is aesthetically displeasing. In the sim, there is no external modeling showing of having this type of AOA. There is a mod from Daher that replaces the boot and lift transducer, stall flapper, which will then provide an AOA round gauge in the lower right quadrant of the PFDs. This is installed on all TBM 910s and 930s. Never seen NP (prop speed) lower than 2010 in cruise. 2020 is okay, if 2030 is hit the prop governor will be adjusted. Reverse numbers and performance are off. Should be 27-35 trq 1800-1900 np. 1850 nominal Ng usually about 85 FF closer to 45-50 Emer. Gear extension, pump count should be 53-65 pumps. Order of locks should be left first 12-25 pumps.Right second 30-45 pumps and nose is last from 50 to 65 pumps. In sim nose locked first at 28 and left/right locked at same time on the 43rd pump. ESI-2000 occasionally showing a different IAS than the PFDs. In some cases over 15 knot difference, always higher than PFD. Last one which is a bug, seemingly, is what I beleive to be the hypoxia simulation, pulsating red encompassing from the outside of the screen in. In my sim test flight, set LFE at 10,000 feet, descended to 10,000, turned off bleed and hit the dump switch. Started a 1,000 fpm climb to 15,000 to see if the PAX mask drop is simulated. Didnt put the mask on during this as I dont do it IRL. Nothing happened so I made my descent and landed, 5600 msl airport. And it wasnt until exiting the runway that this started appearing. Donned the mask just to confirm to myself that its the hypoxia sim, but even leaving the mask on didnt make this go away.. Anyway, thats all I’ve got. By all means, if anyone from the dev team wants to do any of these or anything else for that matter, feel free to PM.I can provide anything from more specific part pricing, to filled out forms from my test flights and ground runs, which encompass every operating value of the engine, timing for various moving parts and anything else you could want. You have all created an outstanding simulation of the TBM and my hat is off to all of you for what you’ve created. Like I said I bought xplane specifically to fly this aircraft and y’all have delivered. I thank you all in advance for the hours upon hours of fun that I will be having flying this sim. Dont know why text got small and on an iPad and dont care to fix it.

    Here is the AOA gauge on a PFD. This is on a G1000 NXI, hence why some things looka bit different. Also included a couple extra pictures of the maintenance aftermath of a prop strike. Engine has to go to Pratt for evaluation. Prop is done, this one hit a taxiway light while taxiing out. Still took off and flew for some reason. Vibration would be awful. Pictures will keep rolling in as I take them. All of these are from today.

    Sorry if this is a bit off topic... but I think that it's a pity that there was no greetings about Xmas and new year...the IXEG Dev team and its community really deserve this since we got so much by the Team with the 737 and for all support... so...Merry Xmas (I'm a bit late..I know...sorry for that) and a great 2019 to you all and your family
