    Exciting take off runs...

    Hi guys, I will put my 2 cents on the matter. I have no experience flying turbos of that size, I only have type ratings for PA-11, C-150 and C-172, but as far as I can extrapolate, the ground handling feels ok for an aircraft with that amount of power. Also you need to operate this bird according to to the "book", Yaw damper is not to be used below 500 feet AGL. It will try to coordinate the aircraft using ruder trim, so if you try to to takeoff with YD enabled, you will end fighting against its inputs. Also the trim setting is very important during takeoff, make sure that the pitch trim and rudder trim are in green arc before lining up. I recommend everybody to read the POH available at the Socata site, especially the Amplified procedures, in the section 4: page 282 - Normal takeoff page 284 - Short takeoff http://www.tbm.aero/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/PIM_TBM900__E1.pdf <-- let me know if Its not allowed to publish links here. Also keep in mind that besides the maximum x-wind component is 20 kt, in GAs is very difficult to takeoff and land with anything grater than 10 kt and gusty conditions. Additionally is more complicated in a flight sim because you don´t "feel" the aircraft as in the real thing. Its just my humble opinion, I never had handling issues following the real procedures.

  2. Hi Devs, I cant stop flying this beautiful plane, its amazing! I had a severe icing yesterday flying in a storm system, and I had to change the flight level to avoid the ice, (first time ever since "Flight simulator 95" that it happen to me hehe, the drag of the ice and the capacity of the deice systems is perfectly modelated) As a real world pilot, I can say that the aircraft has one of the more accurate flight models that i ever saw in a flight simulator. I have logged more than 40 hours in FSE since i purchased it, and one thing that I would like is to access the payload screen after FSE flight start. I am interested only in the CG graph and the weight numbers, maybe you can show that info disabling access to the payload and fuel inputs. I know that this is not a priority, but I think that more than one FSE pilot will appreciate it. Thanks for your time! Best Regards Fernando- PS: Excuse my bad English, my native language is Spanish

    TBM-900 Condensed checklists

    I will try to enlarge the tables, but the idea was to keep it in a single page. I printed it in A4 also, using a laser printer. Cheers!
  4. Hi folks, I made a PDF document with all the Normal checklists from the official POH in only 2 pages, also I included some performance tables. I wanted to share it with the community. Let me know if I can improve it. Thanks for this great product! Cheers TBM-900 Condensed Checklist.pdf

    Crash after some time on cruise.

    I tried to increase the Page File size, and I got no more crashes (previously was set to auto, and now to 16G)

    TBM 900 v1.0.4 Update Released!

    Sure, i dont have access to my pc until tomorrow, i will share it as soon as posible. You should get way more than that with your specs. Try to load the plane in SAZM airport, and check fps. Take into account that the autogen density is way lower than in europe. Which nvidia driver version do you have? Best regards Fernando

    TBM 900 v1.0.4 Update Released!

    Same settings, i fly in south america with ortho4xp sceneries at zl16. In SAZM it jumped from 30 fps to almost 40 fps in CAVOK conditions. With a stratus layer it drops to ~32 fps The VRAM usage is almost 5.5g (photoscenery uses lots of VRAM) Best regards Fernando.
