    P.180 Avanti II

    Version 2.1.1

    4,377 downloads

    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. 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!

    I have uploaded the latest version of the scripts, fixing issue #5 If you have already have the aircraft, just download the scripts_v2_1_1_rc2.zip file and replace the scripts folder inside Avanti's folder. http://forums.x-pilot.com/files/file/1081-p180-avanti-ii/

    P.180 Avanti II - Support

    Thanks a lot. This way is easier for me to track issues, rather searching for bugs in the forums, or social media. Until the fix is ready, don't switch to NAV/BRV SOURCE = FMS, only after have entered the departure, or at least a runway. The error comes on because I assume in my code that the first way point is active as soon as you enter into the flight plan any point. Since this only happens when you activate the departure, you get the nil value thing.

    Thanks for the reporting. It is closely related to the previous bug, and I believe I will have the fix ready this week. If it is possible, please fill an issue here too: https://bitbucket.org/iliastse.../issues?status=new&status=open

    @softreset From cold and dark state, there are two bleed air switches behind pilot's yoke that are off and must turned on, after engines start. The pressurization system is not fully simulated, yet. The only operational knob, is to set the desired cabin altitude, and the "system" will automatically control the rest...if the bleed air switches are on, of course!

    Thanks for you kind words Jason! I have no experience with the RXP GTNs, but reading the manual I assume that you can use the pop up mode, and the Avanti will follow the flight plan, if as NAV/BRG source has been selected the FMS. What I don't now is how interacts with X-Plane internal flight plan mechanism, cause I am interrogating it to extract some data. If writes the waypoints into X-Plane's flight plan, I believe it will be ok, otherwise (use an external method) might not be compatible. In any case, I am not suggesting to purchase the GTN750 just to use it with the Avanti. If you do purchase it for another aircraft, then we can see if can be used in the Avanti. If requires any kind of small adaptation, might be possible to work it out, but won't be "integrated" into the Avanti. My target is with every update to get closer to the simulation of Rockwell/Collins Proline 21 avionics suite, as used in the Avanti.

    I just uploaded the fix for this situation. If you haven't downloaded the latest version (v2.1.1), download the full version (P180_Avanti_II.zip) and you are good to go. If have downloaded the latest version (released on Friday November 23th), download only the v2_1_1_rc1.zip file, and replace the scripts folder inside Avanti's folder. (NOTE: the files might be for sometime unavailable due to upload. Please try again a bit later).

    Known bug: If you enter the flight plan, before the departure (at least you must enter the runway), you will get soft crash when hit EXEC. For now, please start with the departure first and then enter the rest of the flight plan.

    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

    I have added another feature in the upcoming update. An option menu, where you can set the passengers on board, adjust fuel, and set some (one at this point!) options. You will be able to access it ever from the Plugins menu, or via custom command you can bind to a keyboard shortcut.
