Hot Start TBM-900 Updated To v1.0.2

TBM 12

The Hot Start TBM-900 released yesterday to much acclaim, but following the highly anticipated release, some users reported errors with the aircraft that rendered their new $65 investment rather unusable.

Not the type of people to make a buck then run, Goran and Saso quickly issued the v1.0.1 patch less than 24 hours later, and subsequently also the v1.0.2 patch. The v1.0.1 update addressed 2 crashing issues that were identified following the release, as well as a corrupt Mac build of the aircraft, and a small amount of texture fixes. v1.0.2 then built on this by improving the Synthetic Vision system performance, correcting a dataref that would cause a software crash, and a further Mac compatibility update.

Early adopters of the TBM have been advised to head to their X-Aviation account page to download the update free of charge. v1.0.2 includes the improvements that were previously issued in v1.0.1, so only a single download is necessary.
