    Misc TBM questions

    Hello, To get the appropriate cruise set up, you have to go to the section 5.8 of the POH (TBM official's one) : "The torque must be set at or below the value corresponding to the local conditions of flight level and temperature. NOTE Inertial separator must be OFF and ”BLEED HI” MSG OFF. Example : for FL = 260 and OAT = - 22°C, the following tables give the maximum torque to be set. Maximum climb power : TRQ = 83 % for IAS = 124 KIAS (Add 0.5 % of TRQ for each additional 10 KIAS on climb airspeed) (cf. tables Figures 5.8.1 and 5.8.1A) Maximum cruise power : TRQ = 97 % (cf. tables Figures 5.8.3 and 5.8.3A) Recommended cruise power : TRQ = 92 % (cf. tables Figures 5.8.4 and 5.8.4A)" In short, in cruise, you have to check the Torque Power, not the IAS : at high altitude, set the Torque Power around 90-95% (you will have to increase the throttle when you climb, the opposite on descent). Good flights, Daniel.

    Cabin Temp?

    As far as I know, the only way to check the cabin's temp is to go to ECS info in TBM900 (x-plane plugins menu). To change the temp, check p. 24-25 of the manual : there is a knob on the environmental system panel.
  5. Thank you very much for the news !
  6. Tell the truth Tom : this is a picture of a real plane's cabin isn't it ?!

    Help with FMC

    Really ? Still then, no "yellow jackets" in the air, only at the gates !

    Help with FMC

    Hi Agustin, I am French, but I will try to help ! (Come on, Jan, bring up some bottle of old good wine of Bordeaux for your next flight !). VDM is for a VOR-DME approach, so, forget about that, because you want to select the ILS 14L approach. I think that there is a problem with the database (I'm using navigraph). When you choose the NETRO transition, you have to delete the fix TOU/14. then you will get the good track to the FAF. Happy new year to all of IXEG beauty's lovers. Daniel.

    Trim not working

    For my own, I have assigned a button of my throttle to the functions : "lean" and "rich mixture a little bit". It works very well with the TMB throttle. "Rich" pushes the lever forward and "lean" backward. And it is then very easy too to feather the propeller (one notch backward). (of course, I set another button for the reverse and taxy range).

    Trim not working

    Did you switch the electric trim button (overhead panel) to ON ?

    Go Around behavior with GA button

    In the joystick xp menu, I assigned a button to the function tbm900/ap/autopilot command master on/off. I always disengage the AP before landing and, eventually, perform a GA... So I did not test that.

    What framerates are you seeing on the TBM900?

    My contribution that shows that the TBM is flyable with a old graphic card (2048 Gb). TBM900_fps.ods

    Go Around behavior with GA button

    I don't know if this is the reason of your issue : for go around, you have to set a button or key to "autopilot take-off go around". It is not the same one as the TOGA button, used with an autothrottle. I confirm that the SUSP soft key is available after GA on the PFD.

    Steering the Plane after landing

    As already discussed elsewhere, the trick is to slowly decrease the power after landing and not to fully retard the throttle ; and, if possible, to set the reverb to the minimum available. By the way, reverb is not often necessary. It works for me, in spite of the use of CH Pro pedals.
