Smartcopilot for TBM 900

Recommended Posts

 

Hello community,

we have created a SCP config file for the hot Hotstart TBM900!

And we are happy to share it with you today.

Please keep in mind that this Version 1 and the plane is still in ongoing development.

This version was tested with Version 1.08

* Special thanks to totoritko for his help *

# Please Review The presync Checklist.
# Due to limitations of the G1000, it is important to follow this checklist. because of these limitations

# Because of the lack of observer mode

### Version 1 :     Initial Version


#### Install ####

1. Put the smartcopilot file into the main Folder of the Hotstart TBM 900

2. Rename your TBM900 Folder in Xplane 11/Output to TBM900_my (or what ever you like) to keep your airframes

3. Put the TBM900 folder from this file in Xplane 11/Output

3. Load Xplane

4. Load the Hotstart TBM900

5. Do the ckecklist in this file (for this plane it more essential then ever to have the same status at the beginning)
 

6. Do the Payload stuff before connect individual (because these stuff are not synct at the moment)

7. connect via smartcopilot 

Have fun :)


Until we dont have the option for cold and dark, these steps are important to get and same status at the beginning of the sharing flight. Later when have the option this becomes more esay ;)

Thanks docpan and your friends, you are now an expert.

For 2 days, i am not at home, but waiting your file i have installed the plane at home on my main computer. ASAP, i will test, report here and help if i can.

First glance, point 6 (payload tab), can be probably solved easily (i mean with time, i know we are a niche in the niche) by the devs (values in an array, click spots with custom commands).

Thank you saso, Goran and docpan.

 

Claude.

Thank you Claude :). We did this as a team (teh_sparten and mechia). It was not only my work.

And this is version 1. There will be always space for improvements.
totorikto and i talked about the payload already. Datarefs for the payload will come...

Cheers,

docpan

Quick question. Steps 2 and 3. To clarify do we duplicate the TBM900 folder as TBM900_my and then save it outside the sim? Step 3 is that just the standard TBM900 folder in the Xplane/Output folder that just stays? 

 

Thanks!

The TBM900 folder in  your output dierctory stores your saved airframes.

The reason why you should save or rename this is to save your created airframes. When you just replace the TBM900 folder all your saved airframes are lost.

So first rename or backup your OWN TBM900 folder from Xplane11/output, than put the TBM900 folder from our file (from the downloaded zip file) in xplane11/output.

When you have done it, you will have a cold & dark plane. Which you need for Smartcopilot.

The TBM900 we have created for this is just a standard TBM900 folder which we catched from fresh vanilla installed plane.

When you want to fly your own airframes again, just restore your own TBM900 folder (TBM900_my) to xplane11/output...

 

Again, when we got an implemented Cold&Dark option, all this will be history.

Hi,

For the second time, a release includes something about smartco. Great, thanks to saso and the smartco config garage.

 

The most exiting features of the plane are wear and tears, failures.

Is this doable?

Create override wear datarefs. For example tbm900/override/comps/airframe/hstab/elv_act/wear = 0 (no override) or 1 (override active).

So,

scp/api/ismaster = 0 no connection, or smartco not installed: override = 0

scp/api/ismaster = 1 this is the slave machine: override = 1 , values will be received from the master thru the [CONTINUED] section.

scp/api/ismaster = 2 this is the master machine: override = 0

@birdy.dma

We have had prolems with the wear and tear during disconnect and reconnect. Sometimes when the slave plane get in right position after reconnect it becomes high acceleration. During this the wear and tear did his job and slave plane was broken after it. So we thought about to disable wear and tear for SCP...

But you may a different idea....

one problem I would like to report.

1. don't press TOGA button when you are connected with smartcopilot, it will mass up autopilot

Please do not engage TOGA button for takeoff. No defect anymore.

Correct. 

And you are welcome. 

Cheers,

docpan

during takeoff, you press TOGA button, then FD on PFD will raise itself off the ground, and PFD autopilot mode shows "GA", then......"GA" always, ....then always "GA"

HDG, ALT, VS,....are dead however many times you press. even if you try to press "FD" button to disengage flight director, sorry no way
