News! - Aircraft Update : Boeing 787-8  to10.50

 

Voidhawk9 has done an update to Heinz Dzuirowitz's Boeing 787-9. Heinz the original developer is sadly not with us any more, so it is great news that Voidhawk9 with VMAX has continued on his wonderful legacy.

10.50 changes:

 

  • Pushback Truck now functions with both VIP and Passenger versions. (64bit required for Windows users. Works in 32bit and 64bit on Linux and probably Mac)
  • Pushback Truck documentation re-written to be easier to understand. The original was confusing to many users.
  • Flight model entirely re-built. Much more is known relative to when this 787 was first released! Points of note:
    • All-new supercritical airfoils.
    • Wing (and tail) layout rebuilt to higher accuracy.
    • Control geometry, including all flaps, ailerons, spoilers, etc., revised to accurate positions and area (and deflections, where known).
    • All body shapes more accurate, including fuselage, engines, and pylons. This greatly improves body lift/drag dynamics.
    • Partial 'fly-by-wire' implementation using X-plane's own artificial stability. Provides much more realistic response to the pilot.
    • Fuel-flows now accurate for for correct cruise range.
  • Exterior lighting re-worked to match reality, and eliminates 'ball of light' under the nose.
  • VIP version has the custom sounds of the passenger version.
  • Wing textures revised, so that slats and spoilers now blend cleanly into the wing when retracted, as in reality.
  • Cockpit windows now have golden tint, like the real aircraft, instead of purple.
  • Small FPS improvement in cockpit views.

This update will keep the Dreamliner flying a bit longer and keep it current, so a big thanks to Voidhawk9

Hi,

thank you for the update! Will there be an update for X-Plane 11 too, since the plane doesn´t work correctly in the new version unfortunately. It´s shown as a 5 engine yet with whole different flight model suddenly :(

Would be great to improve it for X-Plane 11! :)

Little early yet... XP11 is still an early beta, but most current aircraft should be updated quickly, but the B787-9 is an odd one as the developer died last year, but I am sure someone can do the update as it is based on X-Plane's PlaneMaker app and not a plugin. SD

Yeah you are right, it´s just beta at the moment, but I already got excited to fly with the 787 in X-Plane 11 soon :P I know about the developer, so it´s really good, that someone else could already do an update for 10.50, let´s hope for another update :)
