NEWS! - VSKYLABS Hungarocopter HC-02 updates to v1.1


Update HungaroCopter v1.1 by vSkyLabs_News header.jpg


After just over over five weeks since it's release. VSkyLabs has already done a significant update to their excellent Hungarocopter HC-02. Mostly the changes are a reflection to the handling and dynamic changes in X-Plane 12.08.


The full release review of the VSkyLabs Hungarocopter is here: Aircraft Review : Hungarocopter HC-02 by vSkyLabs


Version 1.1 (18th November 2023):
Flight dynamics:
Nominal manifold pressure (MAP) fine tuning for takeoff and cruise following Hungarocopter feedback.
Governor 103% power mode was implemented. Activation in toggle mechanism via the red push-button on-top of the cyclic head. When the governor is engaged and the mode is activated, the governor increases engine's RPM to 103%. When the mode is engaged, the governor light blinks. To disable the mode, repress the button.
Empty weight tuneup to 330 kg.
Digital displays and interactions:
Implemented dual-system QNH settings (press the QNH setting button to switch systems).
Fuel consumption is now displayed both in l/hr (main display) and gal/h (main display - lower data section).
MAP indication - fixed typo to InHg.
Strobe light switch default position is 'ON' (even in cold and dark). If you forget to switch off the battery, the strobe light flashes! This is the current real-world Hungarocopter checklist practice!
Fuel tank selector default position is 'ON' (even in cond and dark). This is the current real-world Hungarocopter checklist practice!
3-d modeling and fixes:
Added missing pins to adjustable pedals mechanism (visual only).
Weights for solo-flight are now visible only in solo flight (when the passenger weight is set to zero).
ASI scale goes up to 110 knots.
Collective friction mechanism was added and animated (visual only).
FMOD sound pack:
Implemented Cabin and Windscreen fan sounds. Fans can be activated only when electrical power is on.
