    Second X-Plane freeze in 2 days

    Hi @Goran_M, Not sure if you just missed it or if they're the wrong files but @JackSwyr appears to have provided some logs above. Kind regards, BT

    Almost afraid to ask about this bug.

    Hi JackSwyr, I'll be honest I hold Hot Start in high regard they have been relentless in their pursuit of perfection for this addon. That said they rightly tend to focus on the more disruptive issues like the CTD you're experiencing over quality of life issues like entering values in to the FMS. So whilst this issue might take a little longer to fix I suspect you'll see your CTD issue fixed quite quickly but you may need to work with them providing logs, removing other add-ons etc as requested. Please don't give up on this add-on you'll be missing out. Kind regards, BT

    Almost afraid to ask about this bug.

    Hi JackSwyr, I think we may have very similar issues see below. BKSP for me was a bit unreliable but your experience may differ. One thing I've found that always seems to work is to rotate the outer FMS knob backwards before starting to type on the keypad. Kind regards, BT
  5. Also experiencing this issue in 1.1.7 it's not necessarily new to me in 1.1.7 I just haven't had the time to fly recently. Regards BT

    Problems with autopilot altitude

    A bit of a guess as I'm not able to test this at the moment but did you reduce the power post climb? I'm not sure if the TBM900 will do this too but some aircraft will pitch up to avoid an over speed situation. Regards BT

    Have you possibly disabled the Gizmo plugin?

    FSEconomy loads incorrect fuel into TBM900

    It's probably worth checking the FSE forums for a more in depth answer. In short FSE loads fuel by the weight and it assumes Jet A weighs the same as 100LL which it doesn't there is about 13% difference. Based on your figures 220*1.13 = 248.6 so I expect this is the issue you're seeing. Regards BT

    Update on VR?

    I would still have to say I support Hotstart in prioritising the exception handling over quality of life improvements for a small percentage of users maybe 15%. Having accurate logs will help Hotstart identify and resolve the remaining little issues in a more effective manner freeing resource for other things. I think we can all agree Hotstart have provided admirable support to date and that we can have confidence in their backlog prioritization.

    Update on VR?

    Has anyone got any up to date usage statistics concerning VR. I found this post which suggests that following the release of 11.20 only 2.65% of users had ever flown a VR flight. Whilst I appreciate things might have changed since last year it would seems likely that VR is still used by a fairly small number of users. With this in mind it would make sense for Hotstart to prioritize more serious issues or issues affecting more users over VR quality of life improvements.

    Rudder sensitivity

    You beat me to it but in case anyone else is interested http://www.tbm.aero/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/PIM_TBM900__E1.pdf 7.4.6

    Rudder sensitivity

    Hi, From memory I believe the default rudder trim keys are 9 and 0 or if you prefer 1 and 3 on the numeric keypad. The indicator itself is above the flaps indicator on the MFD. Trim for the green marks and slowly advance the throttle. Regards BT

    Slow download speed

    Hi Goran_M, I've just reinstalled 1.4c to see if there's a general problem in Europe for you. I am in the UK, using the BT Open Reach network and the download took two to three minutes. Whilst this isn't maxing out my connection it's fairly normal for these upgrades. Regards BT
