    Other version of Ground Steering possible? [Answered]

    Actually I’m using the Thrust Master T16000M joystick. This is probably the best joystick I’ve ever owned and I have been simmimg for many years. I have no problems you just have to tweak the settings.

    Gear stuck on landing, what should I have done?

    Unfortunately I’ve been through several airframes for various reasons. The experience I related in my previous post was the first malfunction I had with any of the airframes.

    Gear stuck on landing, what should I have done?

    Climb to a safe altitude and extend the gear manually making sure the gear lever is in the down position. The procedure is in the manual. Will take quite a few pumps of the extension handle in the floor. Recently happened to me and that’s how I got my gear down and landed safely.

    Info message re cabin temp

    I’ve gotten this message on occasion myself. It displays at the top of the screen and not anywhere in the aircraft. When it has displayed I simply checked to make sure everything is right with my ECS and then turned on and adjusted the heat or air conditioned and the error message went away. I’ve gotten it on the ground and in the air. Anyway, that’s been my experience. cbreeze

    Awesome TBM

    Perhaps Hot Start will surprise us with a TBM like twin

    Awesome TBM

    Greetings, just wanted to add something good about the TBM. I am still running an early version with XPlane 11.30 and have had zero issues. I just purchased ASXP and using the default cloud textures. Haven’t experienced icing yet or any real failures. Had some nasty weather in my area yesterday so I took a IFR flight and went looking for trouble. Flew from KMDW to KGRB. Got in the clouds and about half way to GRB I started picking up occasional icing. It was really neat to see it form on the airframe and then watch the boots remove it. The icing was sporadic as it is in real life. As I was executing the GPS approach down to minimums I lowered the landing gear and had a malfunction. I really didn’t expect that. Executed a missed approach and once at a safe altitude got the gear down and locked with the manual gear extension lever. Did the approach again and landed safely. I was totally blown away by how impressive this aircraft is and how well ASXP worked with the default clouds. I have a commercial, multi-engine and instrument ratings. That experience was pretty realistic. Even though it’s a sim I try and fly as I would in real life. The approach in itself was a challenge and the unexpected gear failure at a bad moment increased the pressure and started to get overwhelmed. Did what I would do if it was actual and it worked out. just wanted to post something really positive about the TBM and thank the devopers for creating such an amazing aircraft. When it works it really works. I really have no desire to fly anything else. cbreeze

    New airframe - problem

    They pretty much thought of everything

    Fuel Quantity Left Tank on Start Up

    Glad to be of assistance. Bit of a learning curve with this aircraft especially with the G1000 but it’s an amazing aircraft and absolutely joy to fly once you get the hang of it. cbreeze

    Fuel Quantity Left Tank on Start Up

    First thing that comes to mind might be a leak. Go into the maintenance manager and see if there are any issues that need repairing. Hope this helps, cbreeze

    Sensible pedals

    Thank you, that’s what I thought.

    Sensible pedals

    Ok, I have been struggling with the same issue and things have gotten a lot better for me on take off. Did a lot of reading on this topic and one technique that helped a lot was before you begin your takeoff roll, apply the brakes. increase torque to about 50% and 2000 RPM, release the brakes and begin your take off roll, rotate at about 90 and then climb out. rudder trim should be just a little right of center but you can experiment with different settings. One thing I noticed today when I watched a video on YouTube was the application of power. Normally in an aircraft its full power at take off and that what I have been doing. The video I saw today depicted a very smooth takeoff roll but I noticed that the pilot used the technique mentioned above. Before the take off roll, brakes and application of power to about 50% and 2000 RPM, release the brakes and begin the roll. Rotate at about 90 and climb out. The thing that threw me was the power was kept at 50% until the climb was established. Now this threw me because I have a PPL and goes against everything I was taught. I admit that I have never flow a turboprop and don't know how realistic this is but the takeoff and climb out were very smooth. I have to ask, with the TBM it's full power on take off, right? I would prefer to fly the sim TBM as it would be flown in real life. I'm having so much fun with this airplane. I learn something new on every flight. It does have a rather steep learning curve though. Not one that you can just load and fly very easily. Been into flight sims my whole life and this is hands down the best add on aircraft I have ever purchased for a flight sim. Fantastic product!!!!!!!

    Easier tunning HDG and CRS

    There are too companies making a DA 62/64 add on for Xplane and P3d. I recently saw a video from one company where they incorporate a touch scree control to the G1000 expected to be released in a future update to their product. Looked interesting.

    And me to the list of TBM 900 lovers with the same complaint.

    "how to use VNAV" training resources

    Greetings, just struggled with this myself. Had to refer to a variety of resources. The Ringler video was one that helped. Key is to enter the VNAV values you want. You must hit the VNAV button on the autopilot and select a lower altitude within 5 minutes before you reach the TOD point on your GPS course line. I read that a minute before is best. After engaging VNAV and dialing in a lower altitude, deselect the altitude button and watch your display. When the aircraft symbol reaches the TOD (top of descent) symbol, represented by a small circle on your course line, the aircraft should descend until it reaches the BOD (bottom of descent) symbol (another small circle) on the course line and at that point you will level off at whatever altitude value you set in the VNAV profile. It’s pretty cool feature once you understand how to use it. It took me awhile. If you need more help don’t be afraid to reach out.
