    TBM 900 v1.1.4c Update Released!

    Just finished a flight with the new release. Just as much fun as it ever was, no problems encountered. Thanks for fixing this great aircraft!

    Update on the update

    Any way you can release the 11.31 version, since many of us are on that version? In fact I am staying on 11.31 until I know for sure that this aircraft is stable on 11.32. I want to be able to fly the TBM (great fun to fly)!

    CTD with X-Plane 11.31rc1 and TBM 1.1.4b

    And to confirm that I finished the flight with no problems (other than my aviating). I still look forward to the devs fixing this issue, but love the aircraft anyway.

    CTD with X-Plane 11.31rc1 and TBM 1.1.4b

    I'm in the middle of a flight right now. As @briannippert suggested, I started by loading the default C172. I then loaded up the flight plan I wanted to fly in the TBM and closed X-Plane. Next I restarted XP and loaded up the TBM. After powering the aircraft up I checked to make sure the proper flight plan was in the G1000 (it was). Took off and in the air at FL300. I've loaded up the approach procedure for the destination without problem. It's a bit of a pain in the patoot to have to do it this way but worth it to be able to fly this wonderful bird.

    Descent tips

    The problem with a VNAV descent is that you can't often use it in the real world. Controllers can give you descent instructions that may be before or after the VNAV TOD point due to traffic or other considerations, so not using VNAV is what is called for. By the same token you will sometimes be given clearance to descend via a STAR, so VNAV is a good way to go. Mixing it up from time to time is what makes it interesting anyway. LOVE this bird by the way.

    The IXEG and X-Plane 11 Topic [Merged]

    In Plane Maker open up the 733 and select Standard --> Engine Specs. In the left-hand column are the hi idle fuel adjustment and lo idle fuel adjustment. I changed these values to 1.11 and 1.06 respectively. I now have idle N1 of about 21% and N2 of about 66%. Give this a try and let us know how it works for you. Since your mileage may vary play around with the values until they are satisfactory on your system. Good luck!

    realistic wind noise

    I do most of my flying on VATSIM, and having a cabin with lots of uncontrollable sounds can drown out the controller. For that reason I would like to see ALL sound volumes in the flight deck to be controllable. Great job on this aircraft. Don't let the naysayers get you down. Looking forward to seeing this aircraft improve as we go along.

    My congrats to the team as well. And Philipp, thanks for all you do for the X-Plane community.

    Takeoff power issue

    It was cold, about -5C IIRC. I just tried it again on a standard day (temp 15C, 29.92" hg) and the numbers were 44" MP and 2200 RPM. I'm not questioning the takeoff roll, although I worded it badly (sorry!). The aircraft seemed to perform about as expected in climb and cruise. All I'm wondering is if this is anything to be concerned about. If not, fine. The plane is still fun to fly. Just wondering, that's all. Thanks again for the quick response.

    Takeoff power issue

    I haven't seen any other posts on this, so if I missed one I apologize in advance. The checklist says that MP should max at 45" and the RPM at 2700 for runup and takeoff. At sea level I only get 43.5" and 2100 RPM. I use a CH yoke and made sure that it was calibrated properly. Any other ideas? BTW it's not that I can't get it off the ground or anything. Takeoff roll is a little bit longer than I would expect, but climbout and cruise are fine. I just wonder if there are other things that might also be affected. Thanks!

    fuel switches in the dc-3

    Thanks, Ben and Goran. D'oh!!! Of course I was trying to fly on 32-bit because the compasses were reading backward on 64-bit. It looks like all that has been fixed. Thanks again for your patience with an old dude.

    fuel switches in the dc-3

    No matter where I am in the cockpit and which direction I move the mouse nothing happens with the fuel switch. I tried reinstalling the aircraft but same result. Trying to start the plane up in this condition, with 3 hours of fuel loaded, I see that the fuel gauges show empty, with batteries on or off, and avionics on or off. Also the starter switch does not work at all. So there is definitely something weird going on, since I was able to fly it a couple of times before. Any ideas? [EDIT] I tried a flight starting at the 10-mile approach. The engines were running just fine although the fuel tanks once again showed as empty. Fuel pressure was fine, though, and I had full control of the bird. Still couldn't move the fuel selectors! I also checked and verified that I had all failures off. Hope this helps. [/EDIT]

    fuel switches in the dc-3

    Thanks for the quick reply Goran. I've tried adjusting the FOV to a number of settings and nothing seems to work. Where does this need to be to adjust the fuel selectors?
