    TBM900 internal/external light issues

    That did the trick and I am glad it's me, not the plane :). Thank you Rob, I really appreciate you taking time to answer!
  2. I got into the plane yesterday at 1am local time, which is pitch black of course. First I couldn't turn on the flashlight, which I could before as I mapped it to ALT-L. I was poking around for a while try to make out buttons but ... no go, it was too dark. Since I couldn't see anything I changed time to daytime, start engine and then switched it again to 1am. All panels are working fine at this point and button inscriptions are fine as well but no ambient light at all. I turned on pilot/copilot overhead lights ... they light up but it's still pitch black in cabin. I turned on taxi lights, landing, pulse, strobe ... you name it, still pitch black in front of the plane. From outside view they are all turned on, bu they do nothing. Plane maintenance tab shows all green, X-Plane failures disabled. Not sure if this is TMB or X-Plane issue, wondering if anyone experienced anything similar and how you solved it.

    TBM 900 fuel incorrect?

    I did this yesterday while doing my OrundTheGlobe tour . I wanted to test endurance and it came pretty close to official numbers. Single pilot 90kg and 35kg of baggage in trunk. Aprox. 1774nm. Mostly at FL280-310 at 250kn. Once you bring her high it burns about 30-35g/h. I landed with couple gallons left.

    G1000, red X for rpm, NG and ITT

    That was it, thank you Rob!
  6. I got red X on MFD for RPM, ITT and NG after I turned on crash bar and engaged battery. All flags are removed and maintenance tab shows no issues. Any ideas? G
  7. Unfortunately I didn't record the flight, I should probably start doing it for sake of being able to back trace all the steps I made. Is there a log or something that could be examined for possible clues? Yes, very nice to see my name attached to such a great product
  8. Hi guys, Got TBM couple days ago and very much impressed with your work guys, congratulations! Anyway, I got my first engine failure above West Papua while I was cruising at FL280. Engine was all in green for about 2-3 hours and all if the sudden all engine parameters started going down slowly (NG, RPM, ITT). Toll-tip message at the top of the screen was saying something about "engine collecting oil residue" ... unfortunately didn't record exact message. I managed to land on local af and maintenance tab was showing damaged propeller, nothing else. Any idea what I did wrong or what kind of conditions can trigger propeller damage of this nature? Cheers
