  1. Can I just take a moment to say a huge thankyou to the Devs for their recent work on the 340. It has quickly become one of my top three a/c in XP which is high praise indeed when you consider some of the competition. Absolutely brilliant job and I for one am most appreciative.

  3. After doing some tweaks, specifically regarding an issue with my FPS, all is ok now. I made four flights since yesterday and I have to say that it is the best aircraft I have in X-plane. Yes there are a certain numbers of high quality aircrafts but this one is very complete. It depends for sure what you are looking for. I have all the main complex aircrafts for X-plane, fan of business jets. I have the new Phenom300 from Aerobask, but the feeling I have with this SR22 is unrivaled. The Avidyne suite is really well done and fully realistic. Flight model is perfect. You really need to

  6. This afternoon I had a pleasant flight to EGNX using OrbX scenery. The BN2-T from TorqueSim loaded with some goods and one passenger proved to be a reliable workhorse. The weatherconditions managed by ASXP and displayed by SkyMAXX Pro 5.1 were nice and a bit challenging due a relative high wind speed near the ground. The sun breaks through the clouds, creating nice shadows in the cockpit. ShadeX contributes to the great atmosphere. I am a happy pilot.

  7. Cool new update... The performance improvements are quiet significant, I wondered how the new default cloud draw area of 40000sm would work but it's indeed working pretty good, I have never used higher settings like this before so the experience was very impressive while keeping good performance. @sundog@JohnMAXX@Cameron Great job once again, thank you very much. :-)

    This is a repaint based on N940BN, a TBM 940. One video, recorded during a flight of the N940BN, can be found here; There are limited pictures of this livery so I had to use some artistic licence. The registration is painted to the airframe therefore this livery is not suitable for thoses who want to use your own livery (I do plane to upload another version for users to add their own registration). ***To Install*** Copy the folder 'N940BN' to your X-Plane 11 folder \Aircraft\X-Aviation\TBM-900\liveries Version 1.1 The black spinner is now wi

  12. I'm not disappointed. This is most exciting and best release that I've ever seen for XP. But I only fly GA planes in XP. Real-world SR22 Avidyne owner though and I think this plane is fantastic. I'm so thankful to you guys to do something so good at such a great price.

  13. Switched on Hyperthreading: Works like a charm at 47 fps (only sometimes minute drops in fps which is way better than before). Thankyou very much Coop. Btw i love the SR22 (i have the SR22 G1000 and Entegra aswell as the SR20 G1000 and i will get the SR20 Entegra too)

  16. You can assume better frames if you aren't taxing all of your CPU threads. The Entegra uses CPU, but it is very threaded from main. On my MacBook Pro, I get around a 20fps boost compared to the G1000 edition (~40 -> ~60fps). If you don't have the CPU room to spar, there is the potential for the FPS to be less. It is very CPU dependent.

  23. SMP with volumetric clouds, ASXP (with SMP option selected), and RWC. Just a little assist from MaxxFX (not very much, though ). Also duly impressed that my FPS did not get torn to shreds. Thanks for a great product, keep up the great work.

  24. The same for me. I've update to SMP 5.0 after purchase RWC (so 20$ + 20$), and it was better with SMP 4.0. When I desactive SMP 5.0 I've 50/55 FPS, and It drops to 15/20 FPS, just with broken clouds, without volumetric beta. I'm very disapointing and hope a future update will improve that.

  26. more 3D porn for the attentive. Nowadays, the 3D has to deliver excruciating detail, so its a big screenshot so nobody is getting faked out. Immersion is the name of the game! I'm getting close to wrapping up the cockpit geometry (texturing is another matter). After that I move to some details on the landing gear, then the wings...then FMOD sounds and the programming and texturing; however, with as much experience as I've had with this aircraft, I don't think the programming of the systems is the long straw. Its a relatively simple (but FAST!) aircraft and I have lots of legacy code from

  27. @Wyskass Did you set FL300 as your cruise at any point? Set the cruise alt so it displays in "blue". Or did you just set 14000 as your target alt? I've noticed over the years of flying the TBM (and other G1000 aircraft) that if you don't configure the flight plan in this way often you will experience exactly what you describe. Various TOD alerts. As the aircraft climbs and descends a bit at cruise. I don't pay them any mind as the ACTUAL TOD will appear at the proper time and all is well. Close enough to reality for me. Haven't you noticed this?

  31. Stop being dramatic and let's just be matter of fact please. I can't even fill my car up with gas for $49.95. You didn't even pay full price anyhow. Now, back to reality... It sounds like you may be doing something wrong. A video may be a good start.

  33. I was corresponding with him through DM, here on the forums, and he confirmed on a clean install, with no plugins, there were no crashes. Following this, I instructed him to add the plugins and scenery back, 1 at a time, until it crashes, then to post results to determine if it's something we can fix or the author of the offending add on needs to fix.

  34. I noticed that the aircraft model has an annual inspection. I did note that it reports the annual being exactly 1-year from the day that aircraft was installed. This is not quite correct. It has to be done in the month of the last 12 month inspection. For instance last year the annual was done Mar 10, 2020. This year the annual is due no later than March 31, 2021. Also I was wondering if you might include the feature to have surprise $16K annual inspections. I think that would make the simulator a lot more realistic. Ask me how I know

  36. Nick is right... Austin models turboprop behavior based mostly on a PT-6 because that is what he flies. We have overridden a LOT of the engine behavior but it's a balancing act. If we adjust the fuel flow to "fix" the ITT swings then the engines will respond too slowly. I think we have found a good balance for now.

  37. A solid, excellent working Avidyne simulation in flight sim. Great work torquesim team. I have a preference for Avidyne and this just completely delivers. Only time for a short flight after release last night, but felt right at home in the 22 and the Avidyne and ap just flowed super smooth. Both the 20 and 22 will get plenty of time. Thank you. This has me looking real hard at the associated hardware which definitely has the wife troubled

  41. @andrey458You said you’re quite new to this, so one of the things that is often very confusing is the misleading concept of a “stall speed”. In short, there really is no such thing without a lot of other parameters also being considered. I reported the stick pusher issue after spending a good few days flight testing the Saab model, and while it does kick in too soon, it should not affect you at all when flying normally. Make sure you do not have the experimental flight model select (this makes the situation worse). It’s worth having a look at this video, you can start at about 9 minut

  42. Honestly? What if we're already using Windows 10 and still have the problems? I'd take a look at the forum posts here....many are already reporting problems associated with the latest update and they all seem to point to Gizmo. In the meantime, we can't fly.

  44. Hi Matt, I know, this is not the answer you are waiting. I have not the other Saab. The LES one is really done to be flown on both seats, which is perfect in a shared cockpit, with very few limitations. I fly it since 2013. It has been continuously improved by the team, so I have no reason to buy the other Saab and spend days to write a new smartco file (Sometimes no doable at all, or with too much limitations, and often with no help from the devs). If you are not money limited, buy it.

  46. @Goran_M I'm a relatively new X-Aviation customer - started when the TBM was released then SMP & RWC shortly after - and I must say I find the "new" activation system very easy to "live with". Frankly I don't remember naming my computer in the original download of the TBM but then I'm almost 73 so that's to be expected . I have given the activation system a bit of thought after watching the video (thanks by the way) and can see scenarios where a user might want to re-authorize a computer. Perhaps the new rig went South for a bit and the user might want to use the old rig in the meantime

  47. 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.

  48. As a rule of thumb, this works quite nice: For a 3° descent path angle, subtract your target altitude from your current altitude, drop the zeros and multiply by 3. If you're flying at 27000 ft and need to descent to 3000 ft, this would be 27000 - 3000 = 24000 drop the zeros = 24 24 x 3 = 72 So you start your descent 72 nm before your target waypoint. (you can always add a few miles for safety) To figure out what vertical speed you need roughly for the 3° angle: Multiply your groundspeed in kts by 5. 280 kts would make a 1400 ft vertical speed.
