    Info message re cabin temp

    Hello, I've been flying the lovely TBM a lot lately (v1.18) and I get this message almost every flight. It's quite funny, there I am, cruising at 30000ft and being advised to open the door to get cooler All looks fine. My bleed is on, air conditioning is set to AUTO, fan speed max (I use max to get cooler faster after I switch to MAN mode), temp selector in the middle, air selector halfway between cabin & windshield, all looks fine. What I always do is to flip the AUTO mode into MAN for a few minutes (with the fan speed at max and temp selector in the middle) and the message goes away ... and then if I forget about it then after a while I actually get too cold so I flip it back to AUTO BTW: Speaking of warning messages - is there a way to disable the "low FPS" warning please? It's a bit annoying - I get it every time during a weather refresh (even with my 9900K), otherwise my FPS is fine but every time the weather is being recalculated I get the message (I'm currently using default weather + FSGRW). Would be nice to be able to just disable the FPS warning message but I don't want to disable all warning messages because I want to know if I'm doing something wrong with the ACF. Thanks.

    Saitek panels config

    Also in XP11.30 LR adds the configurable input curves to all axis - that should help quite a bit even on crappy rudder like the Saitek ones I have. I found that having correct rudder trim set and using rudder trim instead of pedals (unless a bigger correction is required) on takeoff helps too. I think the crappy consumer HW with no backpressure and jittery, short travel axes are the major source of the problems. Especially if you don't have pedals at all but a twist joystick or something like that. You can't realistically expect it to behave like the real thing because the HW is completely wrong, even if the modelling is perfect. But at least the curves should help, we'll see.

    v1.1 IGNITION always auto at beginning

    There are other things that don't get saved as well like the G1000 state is always in default configuration, but I'm pretty sure it used to save the G1000 state in the initial versions but then it kinda stopped working. Since I have no RL experience with G1000 I don't know how it should behave but it's just something I noticed.

    Very unstable aircraft?

    I also use xEnviro (v1.07) and it works fine. You have to keep in mind that in xEnviro they model cloud turbulence and also clean air turbulence - you can meet those from time to time. I think there is a slider in the options that alows you to dial it down if you find it too strong. But anyway, for me the plane fly fine and I don't experice these issues at all. As someone pointed out it would be best to start testing by having a clean default unmoded Xplane install with only the TBM and see if the problem goes away. If not then it's something wrong with your setup.

    xSaitekPanels map

    Welcome. I actually just uploaded a new version that solves all the problems with the previous version (toggle commands, multipanel lights) by adding a custom LUA handling for the switches. All should now work fine. PS: Also for anyone who may not know this - xSaitekPanels has a button you can map to your joystick called "Xpanels FN button" (find it in your joystick configuration). What this button does is that it allows you to accelerate the various knobs by holding it (like ALT) and also access additional functions and parameters (like YD funcion on AP button on multipanel or ability to set COURSE for NAV1 and NAV2 on radio panel). It's a neat feature that not many people know is there in XsaitekPanels by default.

    This might be an obvious thing but do you have all your axis correctly callibrated ?

    Question about the G1000 map mode

    Thanks. It's strange though. At the time I had almost 2h of fuel still. Something LR has to fix I guess. Or I don't uderstand the logic behind it. If what you say is correct then the circle should be 400+nm, not 20 and shrinking. Odd. Or do you have to set the reserve somewhere? I haven't noticed any such menu. I guess it would make sense if the reserve was by default something like 120 gal. But thanks anyway. I will look it up in the manual and perhaps then it will be clear. At least now I know what it's supposed to be

    Question about the G1000 map mode

    Hello, I have one more question please about the map mode - what is that striped circle please ? It grows and shrinks from random places and does weird things like that. I don't uderstand what it represents. What is it please ?

    A few bugs

    Btw speaking of pulse lights I noticed that they work even with crashbar down and no electricity. That seems odd.

    Elevator Down Trim values

    Exactly, you're probably way too fast. I wait until I'm stabilized on the GS and about 3nm out of the airport, ias < 127, my TQ is ~20-25 at that point, select landing flaps, use the yoke to keep the GS, let the ias bleed off and stabilize at ~90 kts, trim it as neccesary, TQ at ~13-17 at this point, then let it bleed off to a touchdown speed of about 80-85, then throttle back, engage reverse and bob's your uncle I just did 10 touch and gos around my airport and it works well, you just can't go too fast. Anything above 100 kts is way too fast. PS: For people having issues with takeoff it is absolutely neccessary to use correct rudder trim for your weight. Also I found out that on the takeoff roll if I start veering out of the centerline I use the rudder trim to correct that. Pedals are usually counterproductive, at least with my Saitek

    Loading a SIm Brief .fms Flight Plan?

    Works fine for me. Make sure you download the XP11 version and put it in "X-Plane 11\Output\FMS plans". Then go into Flight Plan on the MFD, use the small rotary to go into "Stored flight plans" (or something like that, I don't remember the exact name of that page ) and it should be right there. Select it, ENTER and you should have the plan loaded.

    xSaitekPanels map

    Hello, for anyone interested I've just published my map for xSaitekPanels : It works alright but has few limitation, read the description. I will fix the limitations once solutions become available.
  15. Xsaitekpanels Configuration for HotStart TBM900 View File *** XSaitekPanels map for HotStart TBM900 for: - Multipanel - Radiopanel - Switchpanel *** Requirements: - XSaitekPanels - v2.75+ https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/14646-xsaitekpanels-linwinmac3264/ - FlyWithLUA for XP11 https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/38445-flywithlua-ng-next-generation-edition-for-x-plane-11-win-lin-mac/ *** Installation: Remove any existing TBM900 XSaitekPanels mappings. Copy "xsaitekpanels.ini" into TBM900 root folder. (ex. "[X-Plane]\Aircraft\X-Aviation\TBM-900\") *** Tested with TBM900 v1.08 *** Mapping: Multipanel: - ALT - Altitude dial - VS - Vertical speed - IAS - Speed dial - HDG - Heading dial - CRS - Captain's course dial - AT - Nothing - TRIM - Vertical speed - FLAPS - Flaps Autopilot: - AP - AP - HDG - HDG - NAV - NAV - IAS - FLC - ALT - ALT - VS - VS - APR - APR - REV - VNAV Radiopanel: - All standard default mapping. Switchpanel: - STARTER - Nothing - BAT - Battery - ALT - Generator - AVIONICS - AP Trims - FUEL - Fuel Auto - DE-ICE - Airframe de-ice - PITOT - Pitot & Static - COWL - Inertial separator - PANEL - Access - BEACON - Pulse - NAV - Nav - STROBE - Strobe - TAXI - Taxi - LANDING - Landing *** Known issues & limitations: - Multipanel lights don't work because the cockpit datarefs were not published yet, it will be fixed once they become available - At plane load several buttons are turned on (pulse lights, fuel auto, Inertial separator, Pitot & static heat, airframe de-ice) and you need to turn them off or start the aircraft with these switches in ON position on the panel and turn them off with the panel after load. This is because for these controls have so far published only "toggle" type commands and not "on/off" type commands and xSaitekPanels always toggles the assigned action on load which in this case instead of "off" is "toggle" which flips the switches. Again this will be fixed once the "on/off" commands have been added to the plane or cockpit datarefs are published. Submitter lanmancz Submitted 10/27/2018 Category Plugins and Utilities
