  1. P.180 Avanti II - Support

    You should just run the installer from the download section. Problem noted, will try to fix it as soon as possible.
  2. P.180 Avanti II - Support

    I have made a painkit available, if anyone wants to do extra liveries. I have no time to tackle that myself, moreover when I'm planning, sometime in the future, to do a completely new external 3D model. Anyway, if you have a specific plane in mind, post it here and I'll see what I can do. If you only want the Reg No to be changed, tell me what you want and I will change it. That's easy. The glass is there, not so obvious though. From some angles you can see it, but needs some love in the next (2.1.1) update.

    You mean to close the popup window, not the Gizmo plugin, right? Re SASL: I'm using Gizmo in my payware projects (aka DC9), so when I have some to spend to do some stuff for Avanti, it is logical that I will go with what I'm using on a daily basis. After all it is proven that Gizmo is very powerful, with 2 of the best aircraft simulations, run on Gizmo (IXEG 733 and LES Saab 340A). And since I want that horsepower available to me, for things that will come, even for the free Avanti, I ask from you, that for now, accept the small annoyance to have to close that popup window. Regards

    This project is at full... throttles!

    I agree, though the Avanti I is quite similar as flight machine with Avanti II, but the cockpit differences are substantial to differentiate the operations quite a bit.

    The best available info you can find in the net (and I have searched A LOT!) is this: http://www.smartcockpit.com/plane/PIAGGIO/AVANTI.html

    Reverse region, as you can see at the labeling (MAX REV). In the actual plane the power levers stop at IDLE, and then you lift them to go into reverse. Here you can use the same button/command as in jet aircrafts and add thrust. The levers are animated to go backwards in X-Plane. I'm waiting a set of new manipulators to be available to make for them too (as is for condition levers, also update them), so you can operate them with the mouse...though I found it a bit troublesome to do it while trying to control the aircraft (that's my reasoning not put any manipulator on throttles yet...except the Go Around button!).

    Currently no, because I'm planning in the future to redo the whole 3D from scratch. If I find some time in the next days, I might do something for the current layout.

    If you move the mouse to this area, you should get a click spot. Also, by turning on the option to see the click regions, you should see a small green line (the manipulator is just behind the 3D object, so is mostly hidden from view). If you don't get that, I will send you my cockpit.obj file that works for sure. As I've posted in the features list: Propeller simulation is off, and will be addressed in the next update. There are some changes in the latests XP11 version that partially have change the propeller (and engine) operations. Avanti's engines are almost identical with Austin's one, so the changes have affected a lot, and "broke" the way things were working before. This was not trivial to be solved within the time I had available, for this release. With condition levers at MAX PWR and PWR levers at idle, you get around 1015 rpm and torque around 4.5%, but as soon as you advance the PWR levers a bit (torque ~16%) you will get 2000 rpm. Well this is not spot on, but let's say "ok", until I fix it. AFX is the indication that the AUTOFEATHER is armed (switch on and Ng above 90%).

    Cool that you find what causing the error. Happy flying!

    No, you should not turn off Gizmo. This plane uses SASL (instead of Gizmo), but this should not be the problem. I own many SASL-driven aircrafts and never had any problem, at all. From my research, this plane, Cessna 208B, has not XP11 support. Without being SASL-guru, I think that runs on an older SASL version, which is not full compatible with XP11. Unfortunately, from what I am aware of, XP11 updates on Carenado fleet means to rebuy the plane at full price.

    Thanks a lot! The initial (2.0.0) version, was just to make the plane flyable (and not crashing) with the minimum operational capabilities to accomplish a flight, even on online networks. From now one, and every time I will have some spare time, I will add more and more functionality. I believe that I will be able to publish 2-3 updates yearly (beyond bug fixes).

    You know that you can have as many control profiles as you want?
