  1. I am flying 1.1.12 now using EFM and it's working fine. I believe that it's built with the EFM in mind.
  2. Yeah, good point and that thought crossed my mind as did some others, though, I can't remember if I thought about it before or after the crash. It happened very fast and, to be honest, I was caught by this fairly flat-footed. Here's what I have thought about after the fact: Should have pulled power immediately (common sense). Would the airplane have continued to upside down if I'd have done that? I might have been able to roll out of it with aileron and turned the autopilot back on. (Though, it begs the question, what next? How do you land a TBM on autopilot with a broken trim sy
  3. I have. Not a peep so far. I'm seriously hoping there's something...another option other than crashing. Gregg
  4. Ok. No, there was no 'drop in' this time though I have seen from light 'drop in's from time to time but I did check the maintenance. The departure was very ordinary and I hand flew it up to about 10,000 without a problem. No turbulence either. So, the only solution is to let it crash??
  5. Well, the obvious question is...what do you do? I mean, you don't see airplanes flying out of the sky so there must be something...?
  6. I did check maintenance before the flight and it was clean. The flight was only an hour long. Lord, a trim failure in flight can do that?? I pulled my yoke to the stops and got almost nothing. I'd have thought you could manually override even if it was difficult. EDIT: Also, wouldn't it have said something about a trim failure in the log?
  7. I've done about 100 flights in the TBM. This was my second on 1.1.12. I was on a short, relaxing morning flight on VATSIM, from KCLT, coming in for the ILS into KSAV, on dogleg to final. Was just getting ready to put down the first notch of flaps, power was about 30 Torque, 190 KIAS. All seemed pretty normal. I'd set 2000 ft in the Alt window and VSed down about 1300 fpm. When I looked up it had flown through 2000 and was down at 1600. I disconnected the autopilot and, at that point, the airplane immediately nosed hard over. I pulled back on my yoke all the way and it only slightly he
  8. Beautiful pics. I definitely like the reflections on the G1000 screens (though you may want to tone it down to a matte finish) and the attention to detail on the electrical system. I'm hoping there's similar depth in the other systems. Do you plan to have an option to save state between sessions? (Switch positions, maintenance, etc.) Gregg
  9. Ah. I was flying on VATSIM at the time anyway. I had Traffic Global set to 0 but I'll uninstall it before my next VATSIM flight. Have to say, I reloaded teh flight and started over...and it ws gorgeous, beautiful flight. Did a practice approach to a missed and came back around and landed. Flying this thing on VATSIM is a lot of fun!
  10. Log attached (0201CrashLog.txt is log.txt...I renamed it before I uploaded). Gregg 0201CrashLog.txt TBM900_Log.txt I also found this in the Windows Event Log if it helps... Faulting application name: X-Plane.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5de7fd61 Faulting module name: ucrtbase.dll, version: 10.0.18362.387, time stamp: 0x4361b720 Exception code: 0xc0000409 Fault offset: 0x000000000006db8e Faulting process id: 0x786c Faulting application start time: 0x01d5d94cca973dd1 Faulting application path: D:\X-Plane 11\X-Plane.exe Faulting module path: C:\WIN
  11. How are your other planes (and are any of them single engine turboprops?) Just to be sure, have you checked your yoke calibration? Once you get to altitude and level out, does it fly straight hands-free? When you're climbing out and it's trying to turn left, what's your trim at that moment? The trim in the sim should be sufficient to counter the forces of torque and prop wash. Gregg
  12. One thought occurred to me. When the generator tripped on me, I was in moderate to heavy turbulence at the time, in climbout. Just in case that could have had anything to do with it. I mean, I can imagine that the instantaneous measurement of some value during that time might have been low or high, though, the gauges looked okay from what I could see. I have noticed that sometimes when I've gotten a hot start, the engine caught fire while ITT was still in the green, increasing quickly. Perhaps that gauge lags behind the actual ITT? Or maybe I was just missing something in all the bouncin
  13. It's when you bring up the Change Flight dialog (the little airplane in the upper right corner) and there's a button in the upper right corner of that dialog that says "AI Traffic" or something like that. I'd remove all aircraft from that.
  14. I've wondered about that too but try cutting power 1-2 seconds prior to your flair. Lots of RW pilots on youtube use that technique.
  15. Well, I'd deleted the 'state' directory so I don't know if it was set or not. Maybe it was, though, that would have been by accident. *Sigh*
