    Sensible pedals

    Hi, I now apply 90% TO power before releasing the brakes.Helps a lot to focus on the TO roll! By the way, since XP11.30 has introduced axis curve, is there a way to better smooth out rudder sensitivity by modifying the yaw curve? Pierre

    great airplane except ground handling

    There is no doubt proper takeoff and landing roll can be achieved with lot and lot of training. It is rather the fact that there is a need for such a long training that is bugging me in my opinion...and proud ^^ Actually there is no need to argue anymore. The problem is well known now and it is up to Hotstart to decide if there is something to do about it. Pierre

    I had the TO and LDG roll only in mind. Taxiing on taxiway is relatively easy in the Hotstart TBM I think. Pierre

    Hi, Of course it is not the same in real life. Nobody would ever buy a TBM if you can not taxy it straight during TO or LDG roll without having 50+ hours in it. My guess is that the real TBM is straight forward to taxi just like most of GA aircraft and does not need special skills for that. You just have to feel the plane IRL and.that is just what we can not do in a sim. Sims sucks ^^ And Xplane is so bad with ground handling... what a pity and frustration. Pierre

    OBS mode for hold pattern - unexpected behaviour

    My guess with your problem is that there is a problem with the active leg type which prevent the correct use of OBS mode with the waypoint PINIK, maybe because it is not a point to point leg. It may be a limitation of Laminar G1000 though, I do not have enough experience with real G1000. What I may suggest is to try a direct to PINIK before using that waypoint for your hold. Or you may use the NAV mode with LOC1 source for the inbound course, and use DME reading or GPS overlay on map to know when you cross PINIK and revert to HDG mode for outbound course of the hold. I really love the TBM900 but it frustrates me a bit to have a G1000 that is not up to study level like the others systems. Even if that G1000 is surely the best we can have for now in a game sim.

    Low FPS on initial loading

    I can confirm this behavior also. But it does not occurs everytime. As a matter of fact, when I load the TBM, I always proceed to reload the aircraft before going any further. Pierre

    Framerate Drop

    Had this yesterday. I just reloaded the aircraft under le Développer tab and got my 30 fps back. Worth a try! Pierre

    Swerving off runway during takeoff roll - fixed

    The best I could do was to set Takeoff power all along before releasing the brakes on takeoff. But landing is another story. It is really crosswind that is hard to keep the aircraft rolling straight during takeoff and landing. It is manageable if the wind is calm and fairly in the runway axis. Pierre

    Go Around behavior with GA button

    Can’t get SUSP to trigger in the TBM (or should I say XP LR1000). Pressing TOGA before or at minima does not disengage AP for sure. After pushing GA, just pressing NAV exits the lateral GA mode and the GPS follows Go Around FPL. Pierre

    Go Around behavior with GA button

    Yes, it is the function that I have assigned...and your AP disengage when pushing GA button? Maybe it is due to the autopilot engagement. What function should I assigned to simulate the AP push button on the MCP? Pierre

    Go Around behavior with GA button

    Hi, Practising go around using the GA button, I keep noticing that the Autopilot does not disconnect when pushing the button. The TBM 850 G1000 manual says it should disconnect. Also I saw G1000 video where FPL sync got suspended with a SUSP soft key during the go around. Pilot have to push SUSP softkey to re sync the FPL. Do not know if it should apply to the TBM. There is not much infos about GA in the TBM 850 G 1000 manual. Best regards, Pierre

    1st CTD ever with 1.09

    Hi, Just had a CTD during initial climb from KSEZ Sedona. It is my 1st CTD since using the aircraft V1.0 ( I fave flown all versions). Reloaded XP, and flew my flight (KSEZ KPHX without problems. Automatic LOC switching worked great by the way) Here is the log. Hope it may help resolve those CTD Best regards, Pierre Log.txt

    GPS to Localizer Approach

    It is a quirk of the G1000, and Hotstart is aware of that. In fact, it seems to have been a real quirk of the G1000 by the way, but with a software update, it is not happening anymore if the G1000 software is up to date. Pierre

    Thanks Jetnoise for pointing out these videos! Pierre

    [SOLVED] Frame Rates / Objects size

    Maybe it is a good thing to reload the aircraft using the option under Développer tab, right after the 1st load of the plane. I noticed that for some reason, when activating the aircraft again in game after the update, my FPS stuck at 20. As soon as I reload the plane, FPS go back to 30 (my limit with Vsync) and everything gets smoother. It may be the same phenomenon as loading another aircraft and reloading the TBM. Pierre
