  1. Thanks for your answer. Have a nice sunday.
  2. Thanks "Pils", but on approach, the TO field is always blank when I set the N1 target. How may I get the TO preset again ?
  3. Thrust Limit page of PERF menu : select N1 thrust on the left side of the screen. Before landing, don't forget to select a N1 target (90 for example) on the right. It becomes blue when activated.
  4. Thanks for your answer. I will try to practice on IVAO...
  5. Hello, I don't clearly understand the difference between datalink clerance (DATALINK in the FMS menu) and CPDLC (FANS). I tried to use this functionnality on IVAO at LFPO. Using FANS, I got a clearance, but I did not find the way to display the ATC full message and to send my answer. Should I send my request by Datalink instead (at least on IVAO) ? I read somewhere that Datalink is only used for communications between pilots and technical services. With ATC, the procedure is to use CPDLC. But probably, I'm wrong because the clearance may be requested by Datalink (according to Toto's last video). Thanks by advance for those who could enlighten me. Daniel.
  6. "C'est magnifique" Then, we will be facing with a cornelian choice : flying the Mu or the Challenger, old or new school. The old story of "cheese or dessert" are we saying in french...
  7. Thanks Graham, I think this is the issue : I'm using FS Global weather and always launch this add-on after loading x-plane. So, the trick will be to start x-plane with another airplane, then load FS Global weather before loading the Challenger.
  8. Thanks. I did : indeed, page 2 of PERF INIT page.
  9. As in the last video of our beloved dev, it seems that leg winds are not downloaded in v. 1.31 May you confirm ?
  10. I get better results on IVAO if I leave the barometric item checked in the user settings. Then, the difference is only about 200 ft. If unchecked, then the différence is near 2000 ft at high altitudes...
  11. I can confirm that I had this problem too, twice. That's why I posted elsewhere a question about the precise conditions in which we may expect ice on the wings. It appears that it can occur with temperatures >0° C, with a dew point closed to the these ones. And it that case, sometimes, ice is not depicted. Just one example : on a flight online on IVAO, actually, I had ice on the wings and ask the ATC guy to stop taxiing for de-icing. He confirmed that there was no reason to de-ice according to the weather conditions of the day. The hour of the flight was at the end of the day, not in the morning. Just for information. By the way, I like this plane very, very, very, much...
  12. Hi, I checked the hyd system again and, by me, the low hyd pressure light is allways on... DataRef Tool displays a value of 0.80000 anytime, no matter hydraulic switches are on or off... Anyway, thanks for your message.
  13. Hi, Thanks for your answer. I will check again the hydraulic led. I have bound my Alpha disconnect button to the command "Captain's control wheel autopilot disconnect button". I bound all the AP buttons direcly in x-plane menu and deleted all the corrsponding binds in the honeycomb configurator. The AP works very well now. Cheers, Daniel.
  14. Thanks for answering Tim. I asked this question because I experienced 2 crashes at take-off : the plane was unable to climb. There was no precipitations nor visible ice on the wings, but the temperature was 1-2° C and the dew point closed to that. So, I suspect that in some cases, there is a need to de-ice the plane even without visible ice on the wings.
  15. Hi, In X-Plane settings menu, go to CL650/Contwheel/0/Captain's control wheel FD sync button
  16. Hello, Which are the minimum temp conditions to de-ice before take-off, even if there is no precipitations and no visible ice or snow on the wings ? Thanks for answering, Daniel.
  17. Hello, How is it possible to get the rose/ppos/plan in full page on the right MFD ? Thank you for answering Daniel.
  18. Hello, First of all, thank you very much for having shared your profile with us. I wonder how he would be possible to get rid of the "low hyd pressure" caution message : it stays illuminated, even after start. There is two variations for value >0 and <O. If I try to set >1, the light switch off but then, I don't have any illumination at all of course... Just a detail, but it would be fine if someone had an idea. Another strange thing : when I disconnect the AP by pushing a binded button on my Alpha Yoke, I can't re-engage the AP on the Bravo. I erased the AP binding in the configurator and map a new AP command directly in x-plane. Don't know if some of you experienced the same behaviour.
  19. Hello guys, May someone among us who would be kind to explain how the sync mode is intended to work. I engaged by accident this function after T/O (by binding this function to a button) and I could not engage the autopilot after that. Thank you for your answer. Daniel. Disreguard, I found the answer here :
  20. What a nice christmas gift ! How could you do a better job than modeling the TBM ? Indeed, you did it ! In one word : "bravo" !
  21. Fantastic job. Thanks a lot for keeping us informed about it.
  22. A workaround is suggested here :
  23. You may download my config file for the Honeycomb Bravo here : https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/files/file/6172-hotstart-tbm900/

    "Vacuum low"

    Thanks a lot Goran ! @aerox : for the doors, you have to set 3 conditions in the configurator : tbm900/doors/main, .../pilot, .../front_cargo. The value is "1". No HYD msg in the TBM, so I leaved it blank. Perhaps will map it to the INERT SEP msg. It may be useful... To search for the daterefs, I suggest the use of DataRefTool.
