  1. Excellent, glad you got it fixed, and thanks for letting everybody know too! Hope you enjoy the TBM now.
  2. So your experience is apparently unique with the TBM. Therefore we need to understand what is different on your system compared to everybody else. Any Plugins? What Axis bindings do you have?
  3. OK, so I’ve seen something similar with another model, only once or twice on 11.50b9. It seemed to have the trim snap to the full aft position and stay there. However, I was never able to replicate it and haven’t seen it with the TBM. What plugins are you running? May be worth hopping onto the Hotstart discord as there’s a lot of TBM experience there.
  4. I’ve never heard of anything like that before - Is it possible you have multiple controls bound to the same pitch axis? Actually, I have an idea. Let me do some testing.
  5. No idea about the X-Plane C.G. as I only use the built in payload manager. However on my version it’s set to -7.1 centimetres and a payload weight of 95 kg on the initial w&b screen, before loading the flight. If I use the load manager to push the C.G. forward X-Plane reports -11 cm, and fully aft +11cm. could you have some other plugin affecting it? the only time I get a pitch up is if I deliberately fly beyond Vmo and even then it’s a gentle pitch up.
  6. Really just to see if anything at all is out of place or unusual. I’d be looking at power settings, pitch attitude, trim positions.
  7. I can’t say I’ve ever seen either issue, although I’ve heard of pitch issues with aircraft damage. I’m sure the developers will be along soon, but in the meantime can you post a screenshot of the PFD and MFD when you have the pitch up problem?
  8. As you mentioned it’s worth checking both the payload and maintenance screens. If the flight control surfaces are damaged then you will have issues. Also, what was your indicated airspeed when you experienced the steep climb out of nowhere?
  9. Ozz, the usual cause of a "snatch" during AP engagement is the X-Plane flight director handing. Do you use flywithlua? If so, perhaps this little script will help you. It creates a keybinding called "Smooth AP engagement on Torquesim Islander". It works best with a long keypress, around 0.5 - 1.0 seconds. On the keydown it activatesthe (hidden) flight directors and resyncs the VS target, then on key release activates the autopilot - you should get a smooth engagement with ROL/VS every time. If it snatches, make sure your are in trim before attempting to engage the AP, and hold this keybinding
  10. Thanks Ozz, I had the Carenado B58 in XP10 with the REP - I'm afraid to say I hated it - the logic was nowhere near realistic. The Islander is at least trying to do something like what the real thing does, the Carenado was behaving like a modern fully digital autopilot. The AP engagement logic isn't right at the moment as it remembers the previous VS rather than syncing. If you bind "Autopilot VVI Sync" and use than just before engaging the AP with "Servos toggle" the behaviour is acceptable. This has already been fed back to Torquesim - and all it really needs is a pitch mode engag
  11. Having done hours (literally - it's 03:55AM!) more research on this, the KFC225 does support a form of GPS Steering. With the GNS530W in GPS mode it signals to the KFC225 to use the GPS ARINC 429 information to steer with rather than the analog HSI deviation, although it must use analog guidance for GPS approaches - see the link below. The KFC225 effectively can work in an analog or digital mode, and that mode is triggered by a pinout on the GNS530W. Now, for reasons apparently from the 1990s, when the GNS530W is changed between GPS and VLOC mode, the KFC225 will, IRL, drop back to ROL m
  12. The GPS should not be able to “auto-slew” a mechanical HSI, the pilot must always set the course bar on the HSI to the GPS DTK value. Likewise flying an ILS it must have the course set on the HSI. The GPS drives the HSI, and the autopilot “reads” from the HSI, not the GPS. The BN2 as implemented currently does not require this (I’ve reported as a bug) but in general it’s a good idea to operate the HSI correctly. (That’s the reason the GNS gives you the next course and a countdown timer approaching the waypoint)

  14. Thanks @skiselkov - I know your priority is making the model run well on new hardware and these older machines are a fringe case for you. Regardless a low poly model would be much appreciated. What I’ve seen of the model is really fantastic and hopefully in 6 weeks or so I’ll have a new machine to run it on.
  15. Skyguider your GPU is miles better than mine, but your CPU is of a similar age (I've got an i5-2500k 3.3 with a slight overclock). I've tried all the same things you did and can't get a significant improvement. I don't think it's textures as although they are 4K the total texture size is only around 200MB, My suspicion is it's the size of the obj files that is the issue, and perhaps that's loading the CPU rather than the GPU causing the whole sim to slow down. The obj files are enormous. 6 times larger than the IXEG, 5 times larger than Felis 154, 3 times larger than the FF A320 and final
