    TBM 900 v1.1.9 Update Released!

    I honestly don't mind some compromises here and there for the sake of usability. I don't see this as an "easy-mode" but simply a matter of covering the absensce of tactile feedback on the sim world, IF it's the case.

    TBM 900 v1.1.9 Update Released!

    Great update! Ground handling solved! So many improvements with this one! Thank you guys!

    Steering the Plane after landing

    On my computer, I'm pretty confident this behavior is due to the new "ground handling" from the 1.1.6 update. As another user have reported, rudder authority on ground seems to be way off at landing and takeoff speeds (70 to 90kts). At the start of takeoff roll all is fine, as the speed increases the rudder becomes too sensitive. It seems we have full steering and rudder at the slightest touch on the rudder, making the airplane almost uncontrolable. I've tested without any plugins, apart from gizmo, reseted all my hardware assignments, etc...

    1.1.6 and broken rudder authority

    Yeah, I've noticed this as well.

    Heading/track up in FPL view?

    +1 But I'm afraid isn't implemented yet.

    Steering the Plane after landing

    Yeah, computers... I'm experiencing the same. Before the 1.1.6 update ground handling was much better on my end, sure not THAT smooth, but manageable. Now after the update my takeoffs and landings are all over the place. Can't get the airplane to follow the centerline at all.

    Need help to update the PFPX TBM 850

    Exatly that, I was using 10% for drag and 8% for fuel bias (cruise and hold). I will do some more tests and release the "final" profile, in the hopes of some more talented person to make a better profile. Unfortunately I don't have the time to edit the charts as I like. This would be a real "flight test" work.

    Nice. Yes, altough the profile is straight from the POH charts, it needs lots of work. I'm close to given up because apart from the Normal Cruise (which I can create a template with fuel and drag bias to overcome the difference), it doesn't match and is quite off. The Long Range and Max Cruise are way off unfortunately. Yesterday I did some flights on the LRC and MAX, and indeed the fuel predictions doesn't match. The simulated aicraft is meant to be used on the "normal range" I guess. An X-Plane limitation perhaps.

    PFD glitch?

    I'm on 1.1v and still seeing this during low light conditions.

    What's the complete path string at which you're putting the profile? I ask this because on my PC the PFPX folder structure for whatever reason changed during a past update. Now it's on the user "Documents" folder, like this: "C:\Users\USER\Documents\PFPX Data\AircraftTypes" You have to make sure you're putting the file on the correct one. PS.: I'm making some changes on the profile and a TBM900 template as well. Will try to finish later today.

    [Not a Bug] Fuel Weight unit

    From the POH, the conversion is approximately 2.97 (of course this is variable, because one is weight an the other is volume, the density is at play here), that's what I've used for the PFPX profile I did. US Gal x 2.97 = Kgs Kgs / 2.97 = US Gal

    Need help to update the PFPX TBM 850

    Profile updated, corrected some innacuracy with US Gal x Kgs conversion. Just redownload the file please. I'm flight testing right now and will upload to the download section as soon as it gets on "final version" kind of state. I'm getting some different numbers between the simulated aircraft and the POH figures, will try to match the profile.

    Need help to update the PFPX TBM 850

    You are spot on Jeff, and that's the way I've been doing it. We have all the numbers we need on the real POH, so I took a step further to automate the process. In the end you can get fuel planning, route planning, winds and navlog with just a few clicks. Here is my TBM900 PFPX profile gents: https://www.dropbox.com/s/xz2cgmwy9o51rag/Socata TBM 900.zip?dl=0 (unzip to "...\PFPX Data\AircraftTypes") Included, straight from the POH: - 124 and 170 KIAS climb profiles - MAX, NORM and LRC cruise all ISA variations - 3 different descent profiles (1500ft/m, 2000ft/m and 2500ft/m) 230KIAS Unfortunately "Kgs" only for the moment. I'm planning to do a "Lbs" profile in the future. Consider a beta, I've not flight tested it yet.

    No promises, but I've started to work on a PFPX TBM900 profile. Don't know when and/or if I'm gonna be able to finish it though.

    Need help to update the PFPX TBM 850

    Empty weight: 2070 kg (4564 lbs) MTOW: 3354 kg (7394 lbs) Would be nice to have a PFPX profile with 124 and 170 kias climb, and MAX, NORMAL and LONG RANGE cruise. The one that comes with PFPX (TBM850) doesn't have the long range cruise and the climb is 130 kias only. I've not tested this profile yet.
