Socata TB-9 and TB-10 from Just Flight released

Recommended Posts

Considering all the high end GA fans here at AVSIM, I was surprised to see that no-one has posted about this release, early on Sat. :smile:

 

Looks really nice, and a pretty low entry fee too.

 

It comes with F1 GTN650 integration but the developer has stated publically on another forum that they're planning to update it, to also offer GTN750 integration:-

Hi Bill

 

It really looks promising! If I only didn't have so many good GA airplanes already. But the GTN650 integration (which makes more sense than the large GTN750 for this type of aircraft) is quite tempting. And it represents the French way of designing an aircraft interior, which is a nice contrast to the the flood of more conventional American designs. I'm on the edge of purchasing it ...

Hey Felix, I agree that the 650 is a better fit, but I only own the 750, so if it had an integration option for that, I'd 100% of bought it already :smile:    I'm confident they'll add it.    Seems to have many features, checklists, model animations (oil cap opens etc).  Seems good value, and the engine sounds on the video sound fantastic.    I reckon I'll be flying this one soon :wink:

Hi Bill,

 

Someone did create a post:

 

http://www.avsim.com/topic/493686-tb-10-tobago-tb-20-trinidad-by-jf-released/

 

I'm also waiting to see if the GTN 750 will be supported.

 

Oops, sorry DJJose :smile:   I can't believe how quickly your thread got buried.  I checked 6 pages in, on the "new content" list, before (wrongly) concluding that no-one had posted about this release.

 

Very surprised at the lack of interest and enthusiasm about this one on AVSIM.  If it were Alabeo I bet there'd be a 6 page thread by now.   But there seems to be more on offer here than we'd get from an Alabeo release.

Hi all,

 

An update is now available for those of you who have already purchased the product - http://www.justflight.com/support/tb10-tb20/f9351be

 

 

  • Engine start issues - fixed
  • Improvements to tow bar system
  • HSI and autopilot modified to improve functionality when the GPS is being used for navigation
  • Stormscope 2D panel improved - gauge bezel and controls added
  • Vapour lock - outside air temperature now affects likelihood of vapour lock occuring
  • 'Recharge battery' option added to refill menu
  • Engine management is now disabled by default and can be enabled using the add-on menu (More Info)

 

I'm obviously biased as the developer of the product, but the lack of interest/enthusiasm might be due to this being our first GA aircraft since the Flying Club Duchess back in 2009 (time flies!). Hopefully those of you who took the plunge are enjoying it, and be sure to send us any suggestions such as the GTN 750 requests so we can look into incorporating them.

 

Just to correct the thread title, the product features the TB-10 and TB-20 rather than the TB-9.

 

Thanks

Martyn - TB10/TB20 dev

Am I reading the product requirement section incorrectly or does this product in fact require either FSX Acceleration or FSX Gold?

This is mentioned in the Update description:

 

- Legacy SimConnect module included for FSX:SE and Prepar3D users

 

so that would indicate that not only FSX-Accel is supported.

 

... are you asking about FSX-SP2 or something else?

I just took the plunge... V 102, based on the download file name.

 

This could be a nice airplane, if they fix some initial bugs..

 

- The GTN650 integration is incomplete.. needs some work

 

- The climb/descent function in the autopilot needs work

 

- The Gyro sounds are really annoying, but can be turned off, once you find out how..

 

Lets see what Just Flight support says..

I have FSX SP2 only. I read it as if acceleration or Gold editions were required. Am I wrong?

I find the interior and VC of this aircraft (Lionheart version) very attractive and, I agree, a very pleasant contrast to the panels on US aircraft of which I have many in my hanger. Unlike some French cars which I have driven in the RW (Renaults and Peugeots) which are quite unique and quirky, the arrangements of the gauges and controls in the Trinidad all appear to be well thought out and very pilot friendly. I find myself flying this single quite a lot, mainly because of its quality and refreshing differences!

I haven't spent much time in it yet beyond poking around (hadn't gotten far enough to notice the bugs that Bert has mentioned), but it seems like a really nice complete package. Looked different enough from the rest of my XP/FSX/P3D hanger that I couldn't resist picking it up.

 

Am hoping to get some flights in it in the next few days.

They are very well designed. Like a Cirrus before there was Cirrus in ergonomics.

 

I've got about 5 hours in a TB200GT (basically a TB-10). It's very wide for a 4 seater GA plane. The location of everything makes sense. I loved having the throttle right there on the center console. The switches are right above it for easy access and the center stack is well done.

This I can't resist... I got my PPL in a TB-9 at KFME... :-))


Posted too fast... looks like the OP misspoke. It's a TB-10 & 20, but no TB-9  :mad:

I think the only major difference is the TB-9 is 160hp vs. 180 (or 200 for the GT).

 

Same airframe.

Apologies for the error in the title, re: TB-9.    Obviously beyond the initial posting timeframe, I cannot edit. Sorry :good:

And the TB-10 is variable pitch vs the 9's fixed pitch prop.

 

That too.

Lovely plane, lovely video. Where is that scenery? Looks a nice place to fly and I love the vegetation. 

 

I am buying this ... with such stunning VC and some actual engine and other systems modelled I have to. I've had enough of planes I can blast around the sky, like my A2A aircraft I want to care for my planes lovingly and worry about failures ... while I blast them around the sky!

Thanks for the feedback.

 

We followed the GTN SDK provided by Flight1 but we are looking into the information that you've provided.

 

The climb/descent mode on the KAP 150 appears to be working correctly here but we'll investigate further. Just to confirm, in the VC you need to left-click and hold to move the rocker switch to the DN (down) position and right-click and hold to move the rocker switch to the UP position. The mouse-wheel cannot be used. For the 2D panel, left-click and hold on either the DN or UP section of the rocker switch. With altitude hold engaged the rocker switch will command a +500 ft/min climb (UP) or -500 ft/min descent (DN). With altitude hold disengaged the rocker switch controls the pitch hold value.

 

If anyone else finds the gyro sounds annoying, please refer to this FAQ - http://www.justflight.com/support/tb10-tb20/54c69b3

Can't find the video, where is it please?

 

The video is on the product page, our YouTube channel and Facebook page.

The scenery is CZST Stewart Airport from Orbx.

Thanks Bert

 

I have FSX SP2 only. I read it as if acceleration or Gold editions were required. Am I wrong?

 

After a couple of issues with other products in the past we have started playing it safe by stating FSX Acceleration, Gold or Steam Edition as a requirement (the SDK and SimConnect modules were updated slightly versus FSX SP2). With regards to the TB10/TB20, I suspect that it'd work fine with just FSX SP2 but I can't confirm that as I don't have access to a PC with that setup. We are happy to provide refunds on download products so if you are keen to try the product, you could always purchase it and then request a refund if you encounter problems.
