    Low Frame Rate after 1-2 hours [OpenWXR?]

    My frame rate does drop noticeably upon NOAA weather updates, so I'd suspect the WXR program to be affiliated with this.

    LeftToeBrake to Right LUA Script

    It seems nothing more than a visual glitch to me. Specifically, the script read the value from dataref "sim/flightmodel/controls/l_brake_add" and then set it to "sim/flightmodel/controls/r_brake_add" in each frame. Since 1.0.8, the break axis logic for the TBM900 has been reworked, after which the right brake pedal no longer respond to the dataref visually. However, the right toe brake is applied correctly on my side, so I would suspect that it is only a visual glitch at the moment.

    TBM 900 v1.1 Update Released!

    Hi, Has the issue that breaks saved status from earlier versions been fixed, so I can safely update the plane without loosing my progress? Regards, Fengyu Edit: Sorry I just read the changelog again and found out that it has already answered my question. Anyway thanks for the quick fix!
  4. I'd suspect a fuel leak.. Land ASAP and check the tank via the maintenance menu..

    Fuel amount prediction or calculation

    I would recommend using the free SimBiref. If you have PFPX, you can use the profile by maub. Beware that both of them calculates the fuel based on weight (i.e. kgs and lbs) rather than volume (i.e. US Gal). If you want in-depth calculation, use these apps recommended by toby23:

    [SOLVED] MFD showing no map

    Deleting the output folder solved this issue on my side. However I've yet to find which particular file that cause the issue.

    [SOLVED] CWS button

    Well that's unexpected.. Try clicking the CWS button on the yoke with your mouse and see whether the bahavior is the same with using the command. Remember you need autopilot to be engaged before CWS can be engaged. I believe that option is for flight director references during take-offs and go-arounds, and specifically, for go-arounds with autopilot engaged so it can fly the go-around for you. See the pic below: Even with autopilot engaged, you will still need to advance the throttle manually since there is no auto-throttle available.

    [SOLVED] CWS button

    I personally use CWS in this way: Clear the autopilot of any mode (ALT, HDG, etc.) so that the autopilot will be engaged in ROL and PIT mode. It will keep the roll and pitch angle upon engaging. Next, press on the CWS button and manually control the aircraft to the desired pitch and roll. Now release the button and the autopilot will maintain the new assigned pitch and roll angle. It seems that the CWS can be used to temporary override other modes such as HDG, V/S, but I haven't give them a try yet.

    [SOLVED] CWS button

    The G1000 CWS does not work like the one on the 737. Right from the G1000 Integrated Flight Deck Pilot’s Guide: So the behavior you described is well expected. The TBM-900 is not equipped with an auto-throttle, so it won't engage TOGA thrust for you.

    [SOLVED] CWS button

    The default XP command for Control Wheel Steering works for this plane too.

    [SOLVED] MFD showing no map

    I've done a run with only gizmo in my plugin folder: The issue persists and it seems that someone else suffers from being completely inaccessible to the MFD maps.

    [SOLVED] MFD showing no map

    Could you please have another look at this? It seems that the issue still persists in some cases.

    [SOLVED] Inertial Separtor Question

    I believe it is simulated. Right on the product page:

    [SOLVED] MFD showing no map

    Thank you! In fact I myself haven't taken a look at them yet! xD I've removed literally EVERY plugin except for the necessary ones. Nothing had changed and here's the log files for the fresh run: Log.txt GizmoLog.txt log_181024_220013_LGKR.csv log_181024_220157_LGKR.csv

    [SOLVED] MFD showing no map

    Oops I've forgotten that. Sorry. Here's the Log.txt and the GizmoLog.txt. The aircraft is the latest v1.0.5. When I started X-Plane, loaded the aircraft, push the crash bar up and selected the batt source, the PFD and MFD looked like this: The missing map and menus on the MFD, and the miscolored gauges on the PFD is obvious in the picture. Also may you notice that the backup gauges on the PFD is not supposed to be there when the MFD is alive, and the "XPDR FAIL" message is in place instead of the normal transponder code and mode. Then I reloaded the airplane via the developer menu, everything is back to normal: And below are the flight log files which seems to be useful for the analysis: log_181024_152234_LGKR.csv log_181024_152448_LGKR.csv If there is any other files that will help for the analysis, please let me know!
