NEWS! - Aircraft Released : Hungarocopter HC-02 by vSkyLabs


C-47 update HungaroCopter by vSkyLabs_News header.jpg



What is a Hungarocopter? obviously it is a helicopter created and built in Hungary. Overall it is a ultralight helicopter of which two versions have been built, the single-seater version HC-01, and two HC-02 (Two Seater) aircraft. Powered by a Rotax 915 IS. The HC-02 was designed and manufactured using state-of-the-art technology, with the combined result of excellent handling characteristics, high payload, passenger and crew safety compared to empty weight. Patents and innovations built into the Hungarocopter HC-02 include:
- Electrical Rescue System
- Automatic anti-tip device.
- Center of gravity offset, compensation with movable fuel tank system.
- Self-developed, high-efficiency and quiet-running rotors (Silent Type)


Now this innovative aircraft is available to fly in the X-Plane 12 Simulator... to note, there is no X-Plane 11 version of this aircraft.


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. So this aircraft is noted as an "Early Access" project.


Features include

  • VSKYLABS 'Test-Pilot' Project.
  • Highly defined flight dynamics model of the HC-02, built around the powerful, native X-Plane 12 flight model.
  • Development is based on 1st hand, actual materials, real-world HC-02 pilots inputs, relevant technical and other information of the Hungarocopter HC-02. 
  • Highly detailed model of the HC-02 helicopter.
  • Fully functional VR (Virtual Reality) Ready.
  • Built-in Avitab Compatibility (Avitab plugin not included).
  • Multi-Layer FMOD sound pack.
  • The project is under constant development: development road-map includes flight model refinements, enhanced systems depth, additional liveries and other improvements.
  • Autoupdater based on the SkunkCrafts autoupdater (XP12 only) - 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.




Purchase of the HC-02 is usually US$29.95, but currently the aircraft is 50% off at a very reasonable US$14.97  So be QUICK!
