    Another VNAV question

    That might be the issue. You have to arm it within 5 minutes prior to TOD. It will be ignored in case you do it earlier. Other than than it's pretty much straight forward: - set your VNAV profile - set an altitude preselection lower than your current altitude (typically the altitude you have been cleared to descend to by ATC) - arm VNAV within 5 minutes prior to TOD (simply do it when you hear the "vertical track" callout)

    Question - VNAV on departure

    No, the G1000 isn't suited for VNAV climb. You can climb in FLC or VS mode but have to manage altitude restrictions manually.

    Engine won't turn over

    I guess you also checked the maintenance menu for any failures? And just to make sure, have you checked and turned off xplane default failures? If you're following the checklists closely I really can't think of anything else than a failure. Hmm wait, do you by chance have any script running or maybe a hardware binding which could prevent fuel to flow? It would be worth to try without any scripts and all hardware unplugged. If it's working then you know how to troubleshoot further.

    Engine won't turn over

    Did you turn the fuel selector to either left or right tank?

    Where is Throttle friction adjustment knob?

    It was moved to copilot side a few versions back. (for the reason that the real thing has it on copilot side )

    TBM900 unableto taxi due to crashing

    It could easily be dependent on the direction you're taxiing. It's weird sometimes yes. I know a certain spot in the Orbx Courchevel scenery where I can park and shutdown just fine, but next time I start xplane I find my TBM on fire right after loading.

    TBM900 unableto taxi due to crashing

    Very likely the problem lies in the scenery. I have experienced that myself everytime I taxied over a certain spot in an airport scenery. The problem was then fixed by the scenery author. However, try to choose another parking spot and avoid crossing the area you crashed before.

    TBM 900 Not loading correctly

    It works, yes, but you really shouldn't be greeted with this screen anytime you start the sim (unless you did exit the sim without proper shutdown of the airplane) and moreover you should be able to press yes or no without the sim crashing. Something's not right with your installation or maybe you have conflicting plugins. Try without any scripts and plugins or maybe even with a fresh copy of xplane.

    TBM 900 Not loading correctly

    You could try deleting the content of your x-plane 11\Output\TBM900\state folder. That should give you a clean state without triggering the flight recovery window next time you start. Be aware this also deletes your aircraft state and you will start with a new one.

    What happpens when you press "no"?

    Throttle cutoff using throttle

    If buttons are sufficient for you then you don't need FWL or Spadnext. Just assign a button to the mixture up command and another button to the mixture down command. Using these two buttons you will then be able to control the right side of the throttle from cutoff to flight idle and back.

    Throttle cutoff using throttle

    You can achieve that with Spad.Next too, you just need to know which datarefs to look at. (same as with the script I guess )

    TBM constantly banking

    As oldflyguy said there's the P-factor mostly noticeable at takeoff (low airspeed) which you need to counteract with rudder (I usually activate the yaw damper to counteract as soon as flaps are retracted). Keep in mind that the more you pull the yoke to rotate the more pronounced the rolling tendency will be right after takeoff. Better just put very little back pressure to smoothly rotate and you will have a much smoother takeoff with less pronounced yaw and rolling tendency. That being said, in the TBM you have also a very noticeable torque effect coming from the sheer amount of power from the engine. You will definitely have to counteract with the yoke or with aileron trim to keep wings level whenever handflying. It is most pronounced with a high power setting.

    TBM900 shuts X-Plane down regularly

    That's the correct step. No AI planes should be set. Also in case you are running a third party traffic plugin make sure it isn't set to control xplane AI.

    Display backup button doesn't work

    I guess he was talking about the two red buttons at the bottom of the two audio panels, Pilot and Copilot side.
