P.180 Avanti II for X-Plane 11 - CURRENT VERSION: 2.1.1.a (uploaded at: 22:00Z November 27th, 2018)

NEW DOWNLOAD OPTIONS -  !!! READ BELOW !!!

OPTION 1: If you already have the Avanti or any X-Aviation product (you should already have the Gizmo plugin installed in your X-Plane installation - check for Gizmo.plugin in X-Plane 11/Resources/plugins/ folder)

Download only the file : "P_180_Avanti_II.zip". Unzip it in your Aircrafts folder. You are good to go! Enjoy your flight!

OPTION 2: You haven't the previous version of the Avanti (2.1.0) or any X-Aviation product.

Download both files. Run the "P_180_Avanti_Installer.zip". This will install both Gizmo and the previous version of the Avanti. Then you can replace the previous version with the current.

NOTE: If you have already downloaded the v2.1.1 (released Friday November 23rd), download only the v2_1_1_rc1.zip file. Unzip it and replace the "scripts" folder inside Avanti's folder. 

LATEST SCRIPTS (ALL MUST DOWNLOAD AND USE THEM): scripts v2.1.1.rc2 are now (Dec 10th, 2018) available fixing issue #5.

NOTE: If you get a pop window to ask you for login details, you do not have to enter anything, just close the window, and the aircraft will work fine.

DESCRIPTION:

As you might already know this aircraft is based on X-Plane's default P.180 Avanti , originally designed for X-Plane 8, was included in X-Plane 9, and from that point has been overhauled to Avanti II version. This is aircraft is totally FREE! It is a "return" to the X-Plane community that supported us those last 4 years that we exist as a development team!

This aircraft main features are:

  1. High quality visuals, cockpit all new 3D model and textures, including PBR materials.
  2. Simulated: a. startup and shutdown procedures b. engine controls and operations c. autopilot controls and operations d. partially operation of the electrical, pneumatic, hydraulic, fuel systems.
  3. Emulation of Proline 21 avionics suite. Currently there is only one layout that will allow you to operate the aircraft in all scenarios. Many improvements will come in the future.
  4. Installation in the 3D cockpit of the default X-Plane 11 FMC.
  5. Improved flight characteristics.
  6. Internal custom lighting.

Of course Avanti development is not stopping here! Actually the overall development will be continuous, and the aircraft will always be in beta stage. Updates and upgrades will be available frequently!

Main planned future upgrades are:

  1. Adding more functionallity to Proline 21 avionics suite, heading from an emulation to a simulation.
  2. Custom NAV maps.
  3. Custom FMC.
  4. Fully simulation of all systems.
  5. New 3D model from ground up.
  6. Improved flight model.
  7. Avanti EVO.

Special thanks to: Austin Meyer for giving his permission to use parts of the Avanti on this project and X-Plane by Laminar Research that gave us this magnificent simulator!

The team that originally developed Avanti for X-Plane, Robert Pearson (aerodynamics), Massimo Durando (cockpit & 3D cockpit), and Javier rollon (External Model. JRollonPlanes www.jrollon.com) for his fantastic 3D work. @Hueyman for the propeller 3D model and the prop disc images.

Ben Russell of Gizmo64 for his support and that made available to us that powerful tool (aka Gizmo), and Cameron Son of X-Aviation for the support.

And of course X-Plane community for the interest in that project and patient to wait to be realized!

Good morning. I downloaded the airplane and it´s amazing. But when use it to fly in my Sim, it says that keylock it´s needed. I can fly with, but need to be logged.. What have I to do? Thank you.

I can't figure out how to hide the yokes. Photos show the Yokes hidden, but clicking them doesn't hide them?

FYI - Beautiful job on the aircraft. So far, having a wonderful time flying it.

P.S. - Ok, I found a video on YouTube showing the easter egg to click on the edge of the PFD to hide the yokes.

FYI - found a few things:

  • The indicated airspeed has a problem rolling over from 250 to 260 range. It will show 267 when airspeed is actually 257, etc. Only seems to be in that range from what I have seen so far.
     
  • The altitude knob/display is very strange. It doesn't increment/decrement smoothly, but instead seems to roll up and down to x500 feet. Is this by design?

Just saw that. You just close the login window and everything will work fine.

Those things are fixed in the upcoming update. You can use mouse scroll wheel also for fine adjustment. The step is every 100 ft.

Thanks for that update. I also found the *other* support thread which seems to be much more active than this one with all the upcoming changes to be released soon. Thank you so much for this contribution to the X-Plane community and your continued commitment to enhancing this aircraft. Amazing job!

Hey, I'd really like to try this plane, but I get the following error message from the installer:

"unable to download: component file version does not match"

Was I supposed to download the xplane 9 version and upgrade it?  This seems like a good x-aviation installer, I don't understand.  Running 11.11r2 on Mac OS.

 

thanks!

Hello,

I don't really understand how to start the descent with this plane. Could you please explain me the procedure?

  1. Select the altitude you want to descend to.
  2. Use FLC, or VS or Pitch (avoid to use VNAV cause currently is not working right).
  3. Decrease the power to start descending.
  4. On the MFD there is a Altitude Intercept Arc, to help you where you are going to intercept the target altitude, given the current vertical speed.

Hello Airfighter,

Thanks a lot could you precise how FLC works?

And Pitch stands for a descent angle?

There is little problem to set the VS with the mouse roll, because it's very very sensible.

Do you have Gizmo installed from another XA addon?

Let me know if you find an answer, I've been waiting to try this plane out since the new version was released!

Should be fixed in the next couple days. Please try again.

Hi.

The installer error message in Mac OS X is still there.

Hm...OK. I'll send you a PM.

Hi,

I too have the error message in Mac OS X, the installer desinstalled a previous version 

ONLY FOR MAC OS

Until this problem will be fixed, if you have Gizmo installed, download the plane and test it from here:

Soon will be a fix and an update too.
