  1. No worries - the reason you need to apply nose down force as you speed up is that elevator trim is designed to hold an attitude at a specific speed. If you're trimmed (hands off flying) for level flight at 100 knots and then you increase power and speed up to 110 knots, the airplane's nose attitude will increase, the aircraft will climb, slow down, and eventually settle on a climb attitude at 100 knots. If you reduce power, the airplane's nose will pitch down until eventually settling into a descent at 100 knots.
  2. Take a look at this video (takeoff at 1:33): In the video, there are at least 2 people on board and full fuel tanks. After rotation, pilot sets pitch around 10 degrees for the climb. You mentioned when you depart the pitch increases and showed a screenshot of around 15 degrees nose up and 105 knots airspeed. This is expected - the takeoff trim setting is meant to allow the pilot to rotate at takeoff speed. The faster you go after that, the more the nose will want to pitch up to maintain that initial speed. The expected pilot response would be to lower the nose to the desired an
  3. Can you post a screenshot of your weight and balance?
  4. Did you do any research to come to the conclusion that the trim indicator is "completely off"? Here are some photos of the real thing: Here is a comparison between the X-Plane TBM and the real ones.. the last image is from the TBM900 PIM. I'd say it looks about right. If it's off, it's surely not "completely off".
  5. The PIM doesn’t seem to say much on the subject, but other airplanes I’ve flown with pulse light systems usually work as depicted in the sim: -If landing lights are selected while pulse lights are on, the lights will go steady to the landing brightness. Some airplanes have a two position landing light switch that makes you select either pulse or steady landing. -If the taxi lights are on and pulse is selected, the taxi light stays on and pulsing happens sort of.. overlapping the taxi light, assuming the taxi and landing lights are part of the same light. Regarding your #2 ab
  6. To add on to the suggestion of reducing power, I’ve had 100% success by starting with power at idle, beginning to crank, then slowly advancing the power lever until the engine starts. Give it a shot.
  7. Is it possible you have a script or joystick assignment or something assigned to manipulate trim that's being activated continuously? It looks like right after you move the trim wheel the trim is moved back to the nose down position.
  8. Yep; inertial separator comes off after engine shutdown and back on after start. The theory, I believe, is that this keeps ITT cooler during the start sequence. I don’t think this would impact your starter issue though.
  9. I’m not sure exactly what’s going on, but you shouldn’t be starting with the inertial separator on. It also looks like you have the bleed switch on maybe. Engine bleed should definitely be off prior to start.
  10. How far from the actual NDB were you at the time? The TBM simulates signal degradation due to range and terrain occlusion. You could also simply enter the NDB into your flight plan and have the G1000 treat it as a navigation waypoint.
  11. Check out this video of a TBM930 starting up. Battery amps are up at 145 right after start (about 4:30 in the video) and they come down as the battery charges.
  12. The main generator limit on the ground is 200 amps. The place in the manual where it references 50 amps also says that battery charge over 50 amps is normal after a battery start. The amperage will decrease over time as the battery is charged and you should be able to takeoff with charge <50 amps. If amperage never decreases below 50 amps, that would indicate an issue.
  13. Increase thrust or lower the gear! There is no way to cancel the aural warning in the real airplane. That said, in the sim, you can press the master warning / caution button while the gear warning is sounding to cancel it.
  14. Are you asking why the nose wheel steers when you input rudder? If you’re talking about operations on the ground, this is how the real airplane works - the rudder is linked to the nose wheel steering.
