    No ice textures when there is ice formation

    I'm pretty sure that if those little dots are not in the real TBM-900 they will not be added to this one...

    No interior sound with last update

    Judging by your log file you are most certainly exceeding the limits of your hardware. Even SkyMaxx Pro is warning you in the log file... SkyMaxx Pro: WARNING! CPU free memory at 21840 KB. X-Plane may crash due to lack of memory. Close other applications, reset your settings, or remove memory-intensive add-ons such as photo-scenery. Try running the TBM with all your plugins removed (not disabled) except Gizmo and see if it's still behaving like this. If not add your plugins back one by one until you find a possible culprit.

    Uncontrollable yaw on takeoff

    Hi, yes it is normal... have a look at page 39 of the QuickStartGuide.pdf included with the plane. It's under TAXI-OUT PROCEDURES - Verify trim settings.

    Uncontrollable yaw on takeoff

    Hi, have a look at the topics below w.r.t ground handling whilst taking off and landing. I also struggled a lot (to the point of giving up ) and the only way to overcome this is with a bit of practice. And making sure that your rudder is properly configured. Start out with no wind and just practice some run-ups on a long runway. You'll get the hang off it.

    Crash in cold & dark cockpit

    Hi Goran, Yes, bit of a waste to just let this nice bird sit there... I was actually making notes of all the buttons and encoders for the PFD and MFD as I'm planning on building some cockpit hardware. I initially connected the GPU and turned on the battery just to get some back-light on the panels. Once I was done I turned the battery off and disconnected the GPU. I left the sim running and just over 4 hours later when I returned to my PC I realised that X-Plane pulled a Houdini on me. You will notice from the X-Plane log file that not much happened between 11:53:41 when X-RAAS initialised until 16:02:20 when the sim went belly up. Thanks for looking into this.

    Crash in cold & dark cockpit

    Hi, My TBM 900 crashed after about 4 hours just sitting in the cold & dark cockpit. This is my first crash since I bought her and I wasn't even there to see it happen. Let me know if you need anything else. Log.txt TBM900_Log.txt

    PFD/MFD popout positions

    Hi, I noticed that the PFD and MFD will popout more or less in 2D where they are displayed in the 3D cockpit... if you move them around then the next time they will again popout based on your view position. Not a "biggie", but it would've been nice if the popout window position could be persisted. Just a thought...

    X-Aviation TBM-900 Improvements desired

    Use shift together with those keys for a slightly faster movement... press and hold down shift before you press the other key.

    X-Aviation TBM-900 Improvements desired

    Make sure that you don't use the "c" key (free camera) for the external view. Just use the arrow keys, "," & "." to move around and you'll be able to "touch" this marvellous machine.

    Cockpit shadow/reflection anomalies

    Thanks Goran, the thing is I'm just allergic to the sun fading my brand new interior. Not a biggie... and thanks to you and @skiselkov for this marvellous plane.

    Cockpit shadow/reflection anomalies

    Hi, I'm seeing light reflections where there shouldn't be any. Have a look at this image and note the sun reflecting off the surfaces which should be covered by other panels above them.

    Update 1.1.7 Crashes X-Plane 11

    Hi, You're going to get the standard answer, and that's to remove (not disable) all plugins, except Gizmo, try again and then report back. I also see your Nvidia drivers are fairly up to date, but @Goran_M said that you should update to the latest, which is 419.35.

    Joystick axes settings for TBM900

    Would also like to know... I followed some of the recommendations in this forum but I'm still having a hard time with controlling the plane on the ground during takeoffs and landings. PS: The greatness of this add-on more than compensates for my bad flying.
