It is time to talk a bit about the upcoming update. A lot of fixes, enhancements, and additions are on the final stage for the 2.1.0 version. You might notice that I have skipped 2.0.x version ,becaus

Here you are! v2.3.0 ready for you! Enjoy!

is there any chance for config file RealityXP GTN750 for P180 ?

I don't know if there is one, but Avanti has been around the FMC, so I'm not sure, if exists such thing, how well will work.

just got into flying this aircraft, and was wondering what power settings are optimal for cruise, descent etc...

I haven't been able to find this information elsewhere, thanks in advance :) 

95% torque for take off, and then maintain 90% through the climb (you can push 100% up to FL260). For cruise use the torque you like without exceeding 250 kts or M.67. Start your descend earlier than what the FMC suggests, or set on the DESCEND page a descend angle of 2*. You must keep some torque (do not descend on idle) to keep oil warm.

After a few requests I got for loading the aircraft for use with career trackers (FSEconomy, FSCharter, etc), I did some changes to allow control fuel and payload via X-Plane's menus. This is a short fix, not an update.

  1. Download the file below.
  2. Backup your P180_Avanti_II/scripts folder, and delete it from Avanti's folder.
  3. Unzip the downloaded file and move the new scripts folder into Avanti's folder.

Download here!

 

FUTURE UPDATES:

After X-Plane 12 will be released, and do what needed for the payware products (C23, DC3), I will bring Avanti up to XP12 standards, hopefully sometime within 2022.

Hello Ilias,

thank you for this quick update! It solves my problem! :-)
Yesterday I made my first flight with it and about 10 minutes after take off my lef engine died for no obvious reason....

So, I was looking for some guidance in the form of a manual or tutorial videos, but could not find any particular reference to engine management.

In early 2020 you wrote here: "I should apologize because I don't have any documentation covering the aircraft. I might do a "tutorial" like video to show a few things special to Avanti and how you should operate the aircraft."
Is that still true? Any more concrete plans?

Thank you again for your dedication and the excellent work you have done for this unique aircraft.

Best wishes
Jürgen

I have experienced twice in the last days the loss of my left engine for no apparent reason. The right engine continued normally.

I tried to restart the engine but that did not work.

What is the correct procedure for restarting an engine while in flight, please?
Thank you, Ilias, for this crucial information and perhaps a hint where i can find a tutorial or checklist for that situation, if you know of one.

Otherwise, thank you again for an excellent plane!

Cheers,
Scorpio47

If will happen again, post here the Log.txt to check if there is and bug. I've made a flight with Avanti, might help

Thank you, Ilias, will do that for sure. So far I had this twice, but today I could fly for about 150 NM without any incident. Will be alert for another one if it happens.

Thank you for that video, I will watch it and certainly learn a lot more about this wonderful airplane!

Have a good week and take care
Juergen

 

EDIT after my last flight:

The engines worked flawlessly, only at FL310 the left engine indication showed a jitter when I went above 67%, below that value all was fine.
Furthermore after touch down a window opened, triggered by Gizmo with a warning in red letters. Unfortunately I did not take a screenshot, but it mentioned something was not found in connection with OnUpdate....

For your information I have attached my log file ....

THANK YOU for your help and support
Cheers Juergen

Hi!
My "Nose Wheel Steering" option set to AUTO, but nose wheel can't steer using my Thrustmaster Airbus TCA Sidestick.
Rudders move, but nose wheel not steer.
Please help me how to steer.

In AUTO, nose wheel steering is disabled above 60 knots ground speed.

If your Mach speed goes above M.65 (which is aircraft limit and indicated below speed tape), there is a tendency for the left engine to overspeed. Keep the speed at M.65 or lower. The FM is a bit rough on these extremities, and will be reviewed with XP12.

The warning is a bug in my navigation code, happens at the end of the flight plan, and will be fixed in the future. But beyond the warning, you should have no other affect in the operation of the aircraft.

Thank you, Ilias, for your prompt reply and the confirmation that there is nothing "wrong" with my setup and Gizmo :)

As to that speed limit, I shall watch out more carefully in the future and hope to avoid engine burn out.

But even if I might not need it, I would still be interested to know the proper way to restart an engine in flight....

Thanks again and  σας ευχαριστώ

Jürgen
