    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.

    Oh that's a bummer from my side. I'm about to add Avitab, I added some code, but didn't add any check if the plugin exists or not. You can download the Avitab directly from here: https://github.com/fpw/avitab/releases, and install it, until I add the fix. Do you have any livery in mind? I'll try to find some time to do one. EDIT: Is this ok for you?

    DC-9 for X-Plane

    UPDATE!! Working now on the systems simulation. Here is an example of how is going. One of (the many!) characteristics of DC-9 is that the rudder travel is limited in relation to the factors below: - Airspeed (there is a dedicated pitot tube on the leading edge of the vertical stabilizer) - Flaps setting, - Right hydraulic system pressure, and - Rudder power lever position (yeap has such thing; DC-9 is a very unique plane)! The restriction is as in the image. This part of the flight control system is done! Works 100% as in the real aircraft! I'm heading for the next item!

Incuded 1 basic (white) texture and the XB-KSW. - Includes previous fixes. - Initial Avitab implementation on MFD (3rd page). No "touch" controls yet. - New manipulators, due to compatibility with VR. - Manipulators for Flaps, Condition Levers, and Throttles with detends.

    add new scenery

    No. You need the full product to be able to have access to the land for the rest of the world.

    Exactly! Specially when you got it in the plane!

    Typical cabin pressurization problem. If you do a cold start, then the switches in the image below will be on the OFF position. After start the engines, turn them ON.

    A short update. Working now with SimVRlabs to adapt Avanti with VR. A few things are remaining to be ironed out, before ready. With that opportunity, all manipulators have been reworked, specially the throttles, condition levers, and flaps. Now they have a "gated" fill, which means that they will "stick" a bit in the various positions. Also I have remapped the whole exterior of the plane to allow for easier painting, which means that the old liveries won't work. I will try to do, except a white basic, another one maybe, and then hopefully the community could jump in to do more. In conclusion, a new version (2.2) is on the horizon.

    Definitely the whole flight model needs some work to be modernized to XP11.30 standards, which, unfortunately, is something that I do not have. Hopefully in the near future be able to tackle this.
