I haven't received any notification from PC Aviator that it has been.  Many other aircraft, yes, but the TBM850 no.

Thanks for the reply.  I didn't think it was.  I monitor Theskylounge.tv for updates but it isn't listed there.  I'll check out PC Aviator.

Hoping that, someday, they'll make a steam version of this airplane.  Any glass is an instantaneous no buy for me...but if it's steam....

I am working on getting the GTN 750 to work in this version, but the autopilot is quite a challenge..

Please be patient :cool:

For the record, I'm very disappointed PCAviator hasn't contacted me yet about the P3DV4 update for the TBM850.  I have left an email and I am on their subscriber list--no news.  :(

My GTN and autopilot mods are interlinked, I am afraid..

Well, Carenado says it works with P3D V4, but in my experience it does not.  Too bad, because it looks good, sounds good, and it's fun to hand-fly.  I flew an older version in FSX and really liked it.  However, in P3D V4 I gave up after 5 crashes in 6 attempts.  The only success was flying as a /A, with nothing loaded into the FMC.  And on other flights, even with nothing in the FMC, it crashed.  On a few tries, the plane was on autopilot, with no inputs from me for several minutes.  

This was with version 2.0 on P3D V4, WIN10-64, ASP4 and vPilot--and that's all.

I have not had this problem with this aircraft using P3Dv4. If you had a previous version, say, for FSX, I would make certain you are downloading the version that is advertised to work with P3Dv4, not the original FSX version of the aircraft.

Yes, I do have the version of the TBM (and the EMB 100) that go with P3DV4 (but never hurts to check, and I did).  I submitted a trouble ticket to Carenado on the 24th, including their version numbers, and got a reply on the 25th.  They said that what I was describing was a known problem with all of their G1000 aircraft, that they have communicated their issues to Lockheed Martin, and that the problem will be solved in the next release (V4.1, I suppose) of P3D.  So that's really good news.

As I reported earlier, when I submitted a trouble ticket to Carenado they promptly informed me that there was a known problem with their G1000 implementation that was caused by P3D V4, and that the problem would be fixed with the release of P3D V4.1.   Well, I have that update (version 4.0.8.28.21686), and I'd say the results are not too good.  It's still a really terrible implementation of the G1000, which is why so many of you are using Bert's GTN 750.  In fact, I may end up using it as well.  

I always fly on VATSIM, so for now I file as a /W or even a /A.  When I take off I operate the aircraft as if it were /A and then use the "Direct To" feature to input the first waypoint into the G1000.  Then I go to the FPL page and input the rest of the waypoints into the flight plan.  I even input the destination airport, although I have NOT been flying RNAV arrivals or approaches.  This seems to work, except that P3D just crashed as I was typing this.  I just love it.  

I must have 1500 VATSIM hours flying the Flight1 Cessna Citation Mustang (on FSX), and that G1000 implementation is wonderful.  It even flies the curved RNAV approach to RWY 20 at KGPI.  But this Carenado product is not useable.  

Hmmm......Bert, you may be getting a PM from me in the near future.

You should be on version 4.1.7.22841.

Greggy_D, you are correct.  I thought the update (version 4.1.7.22841) was an update--i.e., you install it OVER the existing software (which in my case was 4.0.28.21686).  But I was wrong--I guess you should uninstall the installed version and then reinstall with the new version.  

As it turned out, I reloaded my flying box from the O/S up (for other unrelated reasons) and installed version 4.1.7.22841.   So maybe I'll give the TBM another try.  On thing for sure is that I will keep hoping that the folks over at Flight1 will get their Mustang running on P3D V4.x.

I've made 6+ flights in the TBM after getting P3D V4 (4.1.7.22841), and I like it.  The G1000 isn't very good, as you all know.  That's why so many of you are using Bert's GTN750.  But the G1000 is fine for en route guidance, so I am happy for now.  

However, as soon as I post this I'll be sending Bert a PM to ask for his goodies.  

Happy flying to all....
