    General Aviation - P.180 Avanti II

    P.180 Avanti II View File P.180 Avanti II for X-Plane 11 - CURRENT VERSION: 2.2.0.VR (uploaded at: 11:00Z February 25th, 2019) NOW VR COMPATIBLE with the help of SimVRLabs! 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 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. OFFICIAL SUPPORT: Official Bug tracker: https://bitbucket.org/iliastselios/p180_avanti/issues?status=new&status=open Support Forums: 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: High quality visuals, cockpit all new 3D model and textures, including PBR materials. 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. 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. Installation in the 3D cockpit of the default X-Plane 11 FMC. Improved flight characteristics. 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: Adding more functionallity to Proline 21 avionics suite, heading from an emulation to a simulation. Custom NAV maps. Custom FMC. Fully simulation of all systems. New 3D model from ground up. Improved flight model. 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!

    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.

    P.180 Avanti II - Support

    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.

    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.

    DC-9 for X-Plane

    Dear pilots, We are very happy to announce that our DC-9 project, after a lot of hiccups and delays, is finally back on track, and we are working at full speed! The members of our team have experience in real aviation and engineering world, like Aerospace Engineering and flight dynamics testing, pilots, and software programmers. Also we are happy to inform you that part of our team, is a very experienced ex-Swissair DC-9 pilot to ensure the accuracy of the aircraft! Major features: 1. The model will based on DC-9-32, in Swissair’s configuration. This will be the base configuration during development. 2. Accurate flight dynamics, using NASA's simulation tools! 3. System’s simulation to the level that you can/need to operate the aircraft with use of the real aircraft’s manuals. 4. Highly detailed and accurate 3D model. 5. FullHD realistic textures with advanced PBR materials. 5. Fully custom dynamic lighting. 6. Many liveries. To our best, we will match cockpit colors with the liveries. 7. High fidelity sounds, implemented with X-Plane’s new future, "FMOD". 8. VR support from v1.0.0. with full operational manipulators We have opened a dedicated Facebook group, where we will post updates regularly. and discuss with you the development of this project. Feel free to join in! https://www.facebook.com/groups/530615907278229 Enjoy

    P.180 Avanti II - Support

    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.

    P.180 Avanti II - Support

    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?

    librain plugin and Gizmo

    Trying to use librain plugin by @skiselkov with Gizmo, but I'm having some difficulties. First of all, the librain seems to load after Gizmo, and my script cannot find librain's datarefs. By rebooting Gizmo the problem seems to go away. So, I need a way to "delay" the lookup for the datarefs, until the librain is loaded. Second, after rebooting Gizmo, I get this error: G64: 404.654: Boot Count: 9 G64: 409.308: C-Core Error: XDataref.setByteV ran for non-custom dataref. G64: 409.308: C-Core Error: XDataref.setByteV ran for non-custom dataref. 2019-02-14 11:33:03 librain[plugin.c:194]: librain init error: you have set librain/num_glass_use = 1, but librain/glass_0/obj is not loaded. Any thoughts...anyone? Here is my script. librain.lua

    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!
