    TBM 900 lifting the nose on the ground.

    Happily so far I've not experienced this however on touchdown I have to be careful as the nose wheel tends to lift off again if I'm not careful going in to reverse.

    Spad.Next integration for TBM 900

    @0zz have had a look for the snippets however nothing appearing as yet. Do they take a while to get uploaded? Anyway I re programmed the inner & outer knobs to the Saitek radio panel & that solved the issue. Must be something in the background using the heading selection on the auto pilot. Anyway all good now. Thanks for your help.

    Spad.Next integration for TBM 900

    @RobW05 what I'm meaning is that I can access these windows OK until I use the inner knob via the Saitek panel. Once this has happened I can no longer access these panels even if I try to do it with my mouse selecting appropriate soft keys back on the map page. This remains the case until the next time I start the sim. Using the inner knob with my mouse causes no issue until after I use the Saitek knob. Prior to using the Saitek panel the windows are always accessible using the mouse, so using the Saitek knob is causing an issue preventing the panels appearing again. Hope Iv'e explained it a little better now. @0zz Thanks for posting those. I'll get them this evening & have a look.

    Spad.Next integration for TBM 900

    @RobW05, command I'm using is G1000n3 FMS Inner Down & Up events. I'm using my Saitek Auto Pilot as it's totally redundant for this aircraft after buying the great QGMC710 by Quickmake covered in another thread in this forum. Also I have a flap lever on my PFC Throttle TQ so no need for the Saitek one there either. I have it programmed so when I rotate the selector knob on the Saitek to CRS then operate the rotary knob it changes the map range in the MFD. Hdg selects the FMS Outer knob & IAS the inner knob. All work well except as mentioned once I activate the inner knob I no longer see the schematic graphics which appear when you select "system" followed by ELEC, FUEL & GEN with the softkeys at the bottom of the MFD. Prior to using the IAS knob these graphics are OK. The outer knob & range selections cause no issues. The buttons I have programmed for things like activating the cursor, Dir, Enter, Fpl, Proc etc. @0zz, what you have programmed sounds interesting so yes would love to see the snippets. As I've found over the years with Spad & the Saitek gear regardless of programming I find some odd commands popping up that weren't put there by me at times & often I can't find why this happens. Particularly with Carenado aircraft in P3D. This may be the case with me using the IAS switch for this particular set of commands.

    Spad.Next integration for TBM 900

    Thanks Rob, The command I'm using for the MFD does end in n3 as I found none of the others worked so find it weird that using it (with my Saitek Auto Pilot) causes an issue with the Systems graphics. Will persevere as I find it more beneficial to have a hardware option to turn those fiddly knobs.

    G'day Rob, I'd be interested in those if you want to post them. There are still a couple of things I can't locate like the inertial separator switch command.The only one I can find moves the switch OK however I get a CAS warning of a malfunction. Also I have programmed the inner FMS knob however once used none of the system graphics appear in the MFD, Hopefully they would help sort those couple of things out.

    No sound/voice anymore on TOD

    Can confirm what jetset is reporting.

    Unlocking throttle to use beta range

    Hi G, Nice gear! I have a USB PFC Throttle Quadrant Console which is similar & don't have an issue. I also have Spad.neXt so I can assign two different keyboard buttons to the TOGA switch. Short press for TOGA & a long press for the Taxi/Reverse thrust command (Thrust Reverse Toggle). I also move my throttle past the reverse indent at the same time so not sure if that helps also (not in the sim at the moment). I'm using the Turbo Prop throttle set with the TBM to give me the reverse gate.
  9. Hi Jeff, for what it's worth my left arrow transfer key is illuminated continuously as well. Not sure what's going on with the others. Suggest you PM cpuwolf (if you haven't already) as he has contact with Quickmake to see if he can help.
  10. Hi Jeff, Not sure why your rotactors are slow however to light up the LED keys you need to push on the ALT SEL knob & turn it to the right.

    How can I get the throttle to go in REV?

    My PFC Turbo Prop throttles have a TOGA switch which using SPAD.neXt I assign a short press for TOGA & a long press for Beta/Reverse.

    How can I get the throttle to go in REV?

    With my PFC throttle I have the beta/reverse turned off in the XP Joystick configurator as the TBM has it's own gate. I press the assigned reverser button as I pass my hardware detent & it works fine. Coming back past the detent the throttle automatically comes out of beta/rev. Think I did have the beta/reverser turned on at one stage in XP but was having difficulty in getting it to work with the exact position of my hardware reverse detent.

    How can I get the throttle to go in REV?

    Hi Jack, Not sure about assigning keyboard keys for specific commands I always use hardware buttons or levers. I assume you have no buttons on the TQ6?

    How can I get the throttle to go in REV?

    Hi Jack, I have the button on my PFC Throttle set to "Thrust reverse toggle" which works well.
  15. Thanks for the quick reply. Yes I did have the button programming correct however I found I had still had a conflicting command coming from SPAD.neXt which I had forgotten I had put in there. Current flight appears to be working well. No I don't have the Thrustmaster however I do have a now redundant Saitek Auto Pilot (for the TBM) which I have programmed using SPAD.neXt to operate the FMS including main buttons for FLP, ENT etc as well as map range. It is working quite well too at the moment. :-)
