Stephen Posted March 23 Report Share Posted March 23 NEWS! Update X-Plane 12 : Aeropro EuroFOX Project v8.0 by vSkyLabs The very popular Aeropro EuroFOX by vSkyLabs is now configured for X-Plane12. The Aeropro Eurofox is a Slovak-built two-seat light high-winged aircraft. It qualifies as a light-sport aircraft in the United States. The aircraft is a high wing STOL aircraft with class leading handling, specification, payload and performance that cannot be matched by its direct competitors and is powered by the Rotax 912 series engine. The project consists Three versions of the EuroFOX; The Tricycle (Known in the US as the 'Aerotrek 240'), the standard Tail wheel version ('Aerotrek 220'), and the Tundra tires Tail wheel version ('Aerotrek 220 STOL'). All three variants are equipped with the Rotax 912/100 hp engine. Aircraft variants: EuroFOX-3K: Tri gear version. Sold in North America as the Aerotrek A240. EuroFOX-2K: Tailwheel version. Sold in North America as the Aerotrek A220. EuroFOX-2K/STOL. The vSkylab philosophy is that you are purchasing an ongoing project, so any aircraft you purchase is not fully completed or is completed to 100%, that is the deal you sign up for to get access to the aircraft and all the development is free and ongoing throughout the X-Plane 12 version. These projects are under constant development: the development road-map is including flight model refinements, enhanced systems depth, additional liveries and other improvements. The upgrade to X-Plane 12 v8.0 is quite extensive XP12 - v8.0 (20th March 2023): FDM - Physics and aircraft performance (all 3 variants): Aircraft drag update. Engine power update. Propeller design update. Fuel consumption update. Cruise performance update. Landing gears update, including suspention and ground handling characteristics. A240 - landing gears design update (new wheels, removed wheel-pants from the mains). A220 STOL - landing gears design update - new tundra-tires with updated physics. A220 STOL - LE slats performance update. Systems: New analog panel layout. Remodelled panel, switches, gauges and gauges. New altimeter (dual system). Remodeled/re-wired VSL Autopilot panel. New 'Alpha Systems AOA' Eagle AOA indicator. New GNS530 (old VHF radio removed). New Transponder (old transponder removed). Avionics wiring change: All avionics are tied to 'avionics' switch with separate GPS, and AP servo switches. 3-d modeling: Complete re-mapping of the aircraft (externally) and massive re-mapping for the interiors (older liveries are not compatible with the v8.0!). New added paint-kit. New 6 liveries included. New propeller 3-d model. New landing gears for A220 tundra, A240. Aircraft internal architecture re-engineering (shared parts, various fixes). Interior aircraft 'shell' - remodeled. Cockpit floor - remodeled, retextured. Rudder pedals - remodeled. Texture enhancements all-around. Windsheilds remodeled and re-textured. New prop-disc textures. Sounds: New FMOD 2.0 sound pack. New engines sounds in and out. All-around improvements. Manual/POH: Whole new pdf manual/POH. Project Highlights Three aircraft included (A240/A220/A220-STOL). Designed for X-Plane 12 cutting edge flight model environment. Authentic flight dynamics with authentic performance and flight handling characteristics. Built for VR: Tailored for VR, and optimized for 2D usage. Engineered and designed as a genuine, default X-Plane 12 aircraft. The VSKYLABS projects are practically show-casing X-Plane, as they are stretching X-Plane default features, systems and flight model to its limits without any dependencies on complementary plugins or software...delivering a very robust simulation model, having maximum compatibility with the ever evolving X-Plane flight simulator. Perfect fit for beginner and expert pilots. Practice your skills through the Tricycle landing gears EuroFOX, Tail-Wheel variant, and a STOL Bush-Plane variant. Equipped with Alpha Systems AOA 'Eagle' indicator replica. Built-in Avitab Plugin Compatibility (AviTab plugin is not included). FMOD 2.0 sound pack. Autoupdater based on the SkunkCrafts autoupdater - all updates are being pushed smoothly without the need to re-download the entire base package (base package will be updated every once in a while to minimize the gap). Highly responsive VSKYLABS support forums: VSKYLABS offers continuous professional support, from all aircraft related aspects (operating and flying) to X-Plane technical support. The project is under constant maintenance and development.
