    Hot Start TBM 900 Disable mixture and prop

    Do you have a joystick profile assigned for every other airctaft other than the TBM?

    Knob rotation speed

    Sorry please ignore me I was half asleep when replying, I’ve got two knobs assigned on a hardware panel that uses default xplane altitude commands and they allow me to change the selected as I mentioned above. I’d forgotten that the TBM only had a single altitude knob.

    Knob rotation speed

    There are two knobs, one (inner) adjusts in 100 feet increments and the other (outer) 1000ft.

    Hermann just so you know for future reference, X-plane has a nasty habit of not actually quitting properly after a crash, if you get another crash open task manager and have a look for x-plane running, its quite likely it still is running and this would be why you had problems trying to reinstall the TBM.

    Some questions after being away.

    1. Is because you turned off one of the special effects performance tuning options in the TBM settings menu. Sorry I forget which one, but its to do with the windshield, it also removes the visors because of a limitation in X-plane. 3. The ground handling model was tuned because many people were having problems controlling the aircraft during the take-off and landing roll out (not me lol).

    Yes you can set minimums, I do it regularly in the HS TBM.

    tbm 900 badin no actif

    Remove Pitot Covers in the payload page. You can only do this from the payload page when on ground with engines off. Or you can step outside with engine on and remove them manually with mouse clicks, lol. I had to do this yesterday because I for got to remove them during an FSE (FS Economy) flight. I use X-Camera to step outside and use a gamepad to control my movement.

    TBM900 ATC not working

    It’s not modelled in your other aircraft more likely, the TBM likes to go the whole way when it comes to systems modelling.

    TBM900 ATC not working

    Make sure you have selected the com 1 or com 2 radio on the left side audio panel, you need to select the mic 1 there too.

    Misc TBM questions

    You can use the first stage of flaps at 150 knots quite safely and then gear down at 140, at 1000 feet around 120 knots then flaps full, 500 feet 90 knots and hold that down to the threshold where you should be at about 85 as you cross, then at 30 feet then bring power lever to idle. Ideally you should be stalling just as the mains touch at around 75ish, winds permitting.

    Safe to update to 11.33?

    Two flights for me so far also without issue today, on version 11.33.
  12. No problem Goran, I'll just forego that part of the checklist for now
  13. No Goran, its off. Whole aircraft only has 33 hours or so on it. Very well looked after and flown by the book.
  14. The Standby alternator is wearing out just from doing the checklist, I had to replace the alternator in the previous flight because it had failed. And just now after checking it after a 1 hour flight its showing as VERY WORN. All I did was turn it on for about 5 seconds during the checklist to confirm it was working. It only had a load of about 48 amps during the test and it seems this was enough to almost kill it. Just a small tip, an alternator cannot reach EOL just because it is providing its full capable load, it also cannot possibly provide more than it's rated output. In this situation it just wont provide enough power to charge the battery and the battery will eventually lose its charge. The alternator will still continue to output its maximum rated output even with a fully discharged battery. It will reach EOL sooner if run at max output continuously, but I can assure you its life is longer than an hour.
