  1. This is the best thing I've read all day! 🤣🤣
  2. Yep... This thing is a hot mess. Thanks for your help though. At least I was able to get it in the air to discover it's issues. 🤣
  3. I was waiting for the 13 to introduce fuel, yes, but was leaving it in Low Idle setting waiting for the ITT to settle down. Which it never does. Thank you for your help. Moving the lever to High idle (And then taxi) once 53 NG stabilized solved the problem. I can go flying, finally!
  4. Can't get the TBM to start without the ITT going WAY over 1400. Every red light and alarm flashing. I make sure that the fuel is cutoff before engaging the starter (or loading the plane for that matter) but no amount of monkeying with fuel, blowing out the engine (leaving starter run extra) etc helps. Anyone else having this issue?
  5. Same issue here. An the only fix offered by support, in response to my ticket, was to uninstall, re-download and reinstall. No change of course... More junk from Carenando....
  6. Open the aircraft.cfg file in notepad. Search for "Contact Points" You will see the following: [contact_points] point.0=1, 1.3, 0.0, -4.35, 1500, 0, 0.6, 180, 0.1804, 2.1636, 0.6, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 point.1=1, -5.5, -4.7, -4.15, 1500, 1, 0.51, 0, 0.1312, 1.1247, 0.8, 0, 0, 2, 0, 0 point.2=1, -5.5, 4.7, -4.15, 1500, 2, 0.51, 0, 0.1312, 1.1247, 0.8, 0, 0, 3, 0, 0 point.3=2, -6.0, -19.0, -0.0, 1500, 0, 0.0, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.0, 0, 0, 5, 0, 0 point.4=2, -6.0 19.0, -0.0, 1500, 0, 0.0, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.0, 0, 0, 6, 0, 0 point.5=2, -18.3, 0.0, -1.3, 1500, 0, 0.0, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.0, 0, 0, 9, 0, 0 point.6=2, -21.0, 0.0, 5.0, 1500, 0, 0.0, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.0, 0, 0, 4, 0, 0 point.7=2, 2.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1500, 0, 0.0, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.0, 0, 0, 7, 0, 0 See the first line? point.0? Look right and you'll see the number 180. Change 180 to 30. Save the file. Should look like this: [contact_points] point.0=1, 1.3, 0.0, -4.35, 1500, 0, 0.6, 30, 0.1804, 2.1636, 0.6, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 point.1=1, -5.5, -4.7, -4.15, 1500, 1, 0.51, 0, 0.1312, 1.1247, 0.8, 0, 0, 2, 0, 0 point.2=1, -5.5, 4.7, -4.15, 1500, 2, 0.51, 0, 0.1312, 1.1247, 0.8, 0, 0, 3, 0, 0 point.3=2, -6.0, -19.0, -0.0, 1500, 0, 0.0, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.0, 0, 0, 5, 0, 0 point.4=2, -6.0 19.0, -0.0, 1500, 0, 0.0, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.0, 0, 0, 6, 0, 0 point.5=2, -18.3, 0.0, -1.3, 1500, 0, 0.0, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.0, 0, 0, 9, 0, 0 point.6=2, -21.0, 0.0, 5.0, 1500, 0, 0.0, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.0, 0, 0, 4, 0, 0 point.7=2, 2.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1500, 0, 0.0, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.0, 0, 0, 7, 0, 0
  7. Happy Father's day everyone! Wake up this morning to find an update to Operations Center. Which I dutifully download as I sip my morning coffee. Once the update is installed, I open her up to see what's new and nearly spit my coffee all over my monitor as I find: The DC-6???? For Prepar3d???? BEST FATHER'S DAY EVER!!!!! Until I click the "Buy Now" button in Ops Center and am taken to the product page... I understand how inflation works, but that's a tad ridiculous, boys...
  8. Excerpt from a pilot training manual I found on the net: "The piece of equipment operated for the engine, as it relates to ITT would be the Inertial Separator. With the separator open for takeoff the ITT will increase approximately 20° to 25°C. Why? We are letting air bypass the engine inlet causing the compressor to work harder, which means more fuel (not much, but enough to increase ITT)."
