  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. I think it's just on the right side of the pedestal (as on the real aircraft). I assigned throttle friction to a joystick button for easier access, as a suggestion.
  7. CB light controls a lamp that illuminates the circuit breaker panel below the right side window. Turn it on then look to your right to see it in action. The thing on the right is the Oxygen Mask Microphone Switch. Push the switch to enable the microphone in the oxygen mask.
  8. The solution, based on your video, is to takeoff with proper power settings, flaps in the takeoff position, rudder trim in the green band, and retract the flaps after establishing the climb. Nothing you’ve shown is particularly “out of control” - the TBM is a powerful light aircraft and it requires you to manage elevator and rudder during takeoff to prevent the roll you showed us. Unrelated, it also appears from your video that the cabin is not pressurizing but the bleed air is on - meaning you may have a ruptured pressure vessel (you’d see this in the maintenance window). If you st
  9. I don't know the answer to your question, but I'm curious how you got your Nav 2 standby frequency to be 0.00!
  10. My understanding is that holding down the button is like holding the unlock lever. If you press the button then move your power lever it’s like releasing the unlock lever then trying to get into the locked taxi range. Give holding down the button then moving the power lever into taxi range a try!
  11. Heh - that would be convenient! I looked again at the airframe manager and the registration is missing from the box. The x-plane logbook calls the tail number "N287QK" which I assume is the default. If there's a way to recover the original tail number somehow without creating a new airframe I think that would be ideal!
  12. Hi there - I had a CTD last night while taxiing in after landing. The log file suggested graphics card, and I discovered out of date drivers and updated. The more interesting thing for me was that on re-entering the sim, the airframe hours were reset as if the airplane had been just delivered, and the "Total Expenses" line showed $925,000 but no maintenance expenses. The maintenance log shows no entries either. Is there some sequence of events I should have done to make sure to preserve the airframe data after a CTD? Have I lost the airframe in this situation? Thanks!
  13. Just an observation; from the screenshots it looks like your elevator trim is full nose down, which could be a result of an out-of-balance condition. Can you confirm that the center of gravity in the load manager is within limits?
