If you want to support P.180 Avanti development, please donate here: PAYPAL

v2.3.0 Main Features

  • Compatible only with EXPERIMENTAL FLIGHT MODEL (11.40+), capable of flying up to M.67 at altitude.
  • Terrain Radar operation via PFD/MFD buttons.
  • Tablet for aircraft loading (engines must be off and the aircraft stationary), and access to AVITAB.
  • Librain Support.
  • See Change Log for more!

 

If you don't have Gizmo already installed in your X-Plane copy, there is an version of Gizmo in the folder extra files. Put the Gizmo.plugin folder in you X-Plane 11/Resources/plugins folder.

If you already have Gizmo, DO NOT SUBSTITUTE the existing one with this. MIGHT BREAK OTHER GIZMO ADDONS!!!

If you find reflections too high, in the extra files folders are textures to change that. Copy the low reflections texture into the objects folder, and replace the existing one! 

 

 

v2.2.0.VR

NOW VR COMPATIBLE with the help of SimVRLabs!

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:

  1. High quality visuals, cockpit all new 3D model and textures, including PBR materials.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Installation in the 3D cockpit of the default X-Plane 11 FMC.
  5. Improved flight characteristics.
  6. 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:

  1. Adding more functionallity to Proline 21 avionics suite, heading from an emulation to a simulation.
  2. Custom NAV maps.
  3. Custom FMC.
  4. Fully simulation of all systems.
  5. New 3D model from ground up.
  6. Improved flight model.
  7. 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!

Lots of stuff broken after recent XP11 updates.
Switches that don't switch, AP goes into steep climb >290 KIAS, variables (V/S, ALT, speed bug, etc) not painting on displays, etc. Too much to list, doubt I even found them all, great project that was working great but now needs an annual.

I would like to ask why the X-Plane 11.51 model installed after why the model is like this?

 

The Gizmo version you are using is old and probably does not work with the later X-Plane versions. If you own an X-Aviation product, rerun the installer to get the newer version, otherwise I don't if @Ben Russellcan help here with making a new version.

Thank you. The instrument problem has been solved after installing Gizmo. But why isn't there an Avitab tablet in the cockpit?

您使用的Gizmo版本较旧,可能无法与更高版本的X-Plane一起使用。如果您拥有X-Aviation产品,请重新运行安装程序以获取更新的版本,否则,我不会@本·罗素可以在这里提供新版本的帮助。

Also, I have an Avitab tablet installed.

help please.  I paid for support thru paypal and find nowhere to download latest file with FMS etc.  2.3.0

First of all you haven't "paid" for support. A donation is as a thank you to the developer who spend his/her time to give you a free, high quality aircraft. Second, the released version is the 2.3.0. There is no other version beyond that. There are stuff as work-in-progress, but nothing is ready to released.

This is such a phenomenal plane and flies very nicely. I'm running X-Plane 11.53 on a Mac. Have Gizmo installed in X-Plane 11/Resources/plugins. I got GIzmo from here: https://gizmo64.com/ since others said the included version may not be compatible with XP11.

I can't get the autopilot to engage. Not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if there is an incompatibility. Also, the speed reading in the center display flickers. Log.txt is attached. I'm not seeing a Gizmo log anywhere.

Anything I can do to fix these issues? Thanks in advance for the help.

Great work on this aircraft. It is surely a labour of love, and it is a pleasure to fly. I have just "rediscovered" X-Plane after several years with P3D and recently MSFS 2020, so this was a pleasant suprise. Even with my modest PC, the VC and gauges runs smooth in VR. The Collins gauges look and feels great.
