    General Aviation - P.180 Avanti II

    In the current version, you can only manipulate the props with the mouse. Also it would be better to have no axis of your controls assigned to props (separate of both) to avoid any interference between mouse commands and physical controls positioning. It is programmed that the controls will "stick" to certain positions to simulate the lever falling into a gate. Of course. I strongly recommend to have a dedicated controls/joystick profile for Avanti. A total fix for this is coming with the next version, where you will set at the options, what type of controls you are using, so the controls will be work properly. Check the image below. To make things work for mouse control, VR controls, single axis, and separate axis have become impossible to have them all just working. A bit of patient for now! CAUTION: Disabling GIZMO will render the aircraft not operational. Don't do that!

    Don't use the installer. Download the aircraft from here: Choose this option only: Unzip the plane into your Aircraft folder. Then, put the folder Gizmo.plugin into your X-Plane/Resources/plugins folder. You should be good to go.

    To relax myself of the payware projects, I'm doing a bit of work on Avanti too! Hm...I've found weird ways to relax, right?! Anyway...here are some images for the next v2.3. Enjoy!

    General Aviation - P.180 Avanti II

    The last release has those 2 issues, which have been I introduced by me. Hopefully very soon I will release a newer version fixing those issues and adding a few more nice features (check next post). The solutions for now are: For the avionics, you must install Avitab. You can get it from here. For the throttles (and/or condition levers), Duplicate your joystick profile and named it Avanti and assign it only to Avanti. Map one of your throttles to "Throttle" command (at the very top on the list). Now you will control both power levers with the one throttle. I know that is not the proper way, but because of the extreme customization, and the effort to be as much compatible with everything exists, unforeseen things will occur. Sorry for the inconvenience I introduce.

    Thanks a lot for you kind words! The engine problem is know for sometime know, due to changes in X-Plane's engine simulation. Avanti's PT-6s are very similar to Austin Meyer's, which have gone a lot of improvements over the last iterations of X-Plane, which I didn't have enough time to follow. I think that I might be able to do a small research in the next couple weeks, and might be able to adjust it a bit better. I wish there was someone with Planemaker knowledge to help. THIS IS AN OPEN INVITATION to anyone who would like to contribute into this project, in terms of Flight Model and 3D graphics! For now, this phenomenon is happening when you go above M.62. Try to remain around M.60 to M.61 and would be OK. This is a small compromise needed for now, until fix the problem. Regards

    I think that has something to do with server settings, probably must be addressed from X-Aviation side. By the end of FlightSim Expo, I will inform @Cameron to have a look at this one.

    @gadonate This is Mac OS X right? What version? Do you have purchased any X-Aviation product, and Gizmo,plugin is in your X-Plane 11/Resources/plugins folder?

    P.180 Avanti II Bit of Help

    First of all, the support thread for the Avanti is here: Anyway, have in mind that for the autopilot to follow the FMS plan, a few things are needed. Set the FMS as the NAV/BRG source.t Turn on FD (1) and select NAV (2). You must see on the PFD Autopilot Annunciation the FMS indication in the lateral field (3). Set the vertical mode you like... Fly! Should follow your flight plan perfectly.

    Thanks for the interest! I always keep backups both locally and in the cloud. Most hassle is download/install/setup all apps I'm using, to be as I want them to serve my workflow.

    I started some work on this one, but hadn't much time and pass it to a friend of mine. But I had some hard drive failure, and I'm rebuilding my system back now, and haven't being much in touch with anyone in the internet "realm". Might be ready (or not). As soon as I'm back online, I will let to you know.

    General Aviation - P.180 Avanti II

    @Missiles it is a know bummer I've created. I'm adding Avitab (will be available on the MFD), but I wrongfully didn't add any checks to see if the plugin is installed. Will be fixed soon. For now: Keep both versions. To make v2.2 to work, install Avitab. You can get it from here. Be a bit patient, cause there are a couple more items I need to address before I release a fix.

    Please post your Log.txt and GizmoLog.txt files, and a couple of shots of the instruments.

    No. Avanti will always be free, and I'll do my best in any free time I have, to do it better. I do have, at least for the next 2-3 years involvement in other projects, like DC-9, which put this out of question. I would be glad if there is anyone, who would have knowledge in certain areas, to get involved and help me with the Avanti.

    Should not require Avitab, but because of my fault it does, which will be fixed soon. Also I will add the needle on the PFD too.
