  1. Hi @ZodiacUHD. The TBM manual is online and can be downloaded if you are looking for information on V speeds. Beyond that this aircraft is flown like any other. It is meant to go fast so there is that. There is also a "ton" of Youtube (RL and Sim) videos available on this very popular aircraft.
  2. Thanks! I like the FBO concept but did not understand it was so "connected" to the loading process.
  3. Thanks very much @Pils! For the link as well. I was under a misconception as to how that all worked. So, as I go about redoing all of my saved states, will those states then keep the payload at the saved time? And if I use "sensed fuel" will that be sufficient for proper calculation. Or do I have to use the FBO sheet? Thanks again.
  4. I typically fuel up using the fuel truck panel and the interior fuel panel. Select these from the CL650 plug in tab. This is very straight forward and I do think you are missing something in the checklists as starting a jet engine is way easier than starting a Piper trainer. Never use the XP weight and balance window for this aircraft model. Have you been able to watch any tutorials? I recommend you give "foxtrot alpha aviation" on youtube a look. A RW CL650 driver with terrific tutorials.
  5. Hello @Vulcanyz. Well, either you are not following the checklist and are improperly configuring because there is no reason the engine won't start. It's a pretty easy process in the Challenger. Or, your install could be corrupted. I don't know if it would help but you could attach a log.txt file (XP root folder) to your post for review.
  6. Don't use the XP weight and balance window at all. All of this is handled by the inputs to the FMS.
  7. Hi @leha74ru. Yes the Charts are available with the Ultimate Monthly Sub. I do it yearly so I have never looked at the Monthly choice. So assuming your are an experience Navigraph user those charts should work for you.
  8. No real information provided. So, first things first. Have you configured and updated your Navigraph FMS Data Manager. That's all it should take as the CL650 uses the XP11 data as it's source. Now that I'm thinking of it - looks like you have a monthly subscription to the Nav Data. I don't know if Navigraph Charts is included with that. I will check further and let you know what I find.
  9. Lighting in MSFS is very good. So is the scenery in some areas. Right now that's about it for me. Interesting to follow the development though.
  10. Hi @jomama. I use ASXP at the "Realistic" setting and have not noticed this. Are you flying into "heavy" turbulence? Although your description doesn't sound like that. You could try turning those settings down as @oisin650advised just to rule that out (or in as the case may be).
  11. Have you requested that the "X Life" devs do the same? The TBM works wonderfully with XP (along with many plug-in's) some don't work. It's not a perfect world. Not an XP issue.
  12. Hi @Vulcanyz! I believe this is due simply to the XP11 lighting model and also (to a lesser degree) to the color/gamma selections of the monitor/TV. There isn't any way to fix it other than your specific monitor settings. Which will of course upset some other color/gamma situation in the sim...LOL! So, live with it until XP12.
  13. The same way it is done on so many other aircraft models. Position of the cursor results in direction as indicated by the arrows.
  14. Just a heads up. Not that I remember setting the throttle axis this way but I had reverse detents and beta selected. De-selected them and all is well.
