Plugin Updated : WebFMC Pro v1.8.0 by Green Arc Studios

 

Green Arc Studios have done another small but significant update to their excellent WebFMC Pro Plugin to v1.8.0.

 

This update covers the newly released FlyJSIM Q4XP and the use of the also new Universal UNS-1 Flight Management System. The X-PlaneReviews MEGA review of the Q4XP is here; Aircraft Review : Q4XP by FlyJSim

 

The WebFMC is a plugin that allows you to use a FMC (Flight Management Computer) on an external screen via a web browser. That is an another computer or tablet. So it is a remote tool, but a very beneficial tool and even a powerful one in programming in route and performance data and following the set aircraft route in flight and in mirroring the aircraft's built in FMS (Flight Management System). Added into the functionality is a load of features in the use of the FMC on another screen....  and so yes I am a huge fan.

 

v1.8.0 release

Added in this update are two more aircraft. One is the excellent FlyJSim Q4XP (Yeah!) Note that you will need the Q4XP v1.09 for the WebFMC Pro v1.8.0 version to work in the Dash8. The second aircraft is the three screen HotStart Challenger 650 of which all the three CDU screens are supported. There are also two fixes in v1.8.0 with the now 5 second delay before refreshing the display on initial connect or reconnect, and the notice of critical errors in the status window.

 

  • support for FlyJSim Q4XP
  • suport for the upcoming HotStart Challenger 650 (3 CDUs are supported)
  • fixed ~5 second delay before refreshing the display on initial connect or reconnect
  • improved reporting of critical errors in Plugin > WebFMC > Status window.

 

My routing details are usually done on another computer (A Mac 27") and use SimBrief and Navigraph tools... 

 

The Universal UNS-1 FMS shortened facia has been reproduced to match the Q4XP aircraft in a resizable window. Both FMS units are also accessible via the arrows at the top of the pop-up window. Positioned next to my SimBrief Route inputs are direct from the source.

You can input waypoints directly by your keyboard including ENTER, and select side key buttons via your mouse for really fast inputting of data. Here I am going directly to the DEPART (EKCH - Copenhagen) STAR procedure LANG1F to LANGO.

All inputs can be damn quick... type in the number and ENTER, type in your required ICAO waypoint and just double click (ENTER) to insert, it is all so devilishly easy and quick.

Require an AIRWAY, then press LIST and the AIRWAYS key RK2, and select your airway and destination (1. N872) and (2. EEL).

A note is that if you want to DEL (Delete a waypoint) you can't use the keyboard DELETE key, that aspect has to be done directly with the mouse RK1.

 

Boom, Boom done...  So building up a flightplan (even remotely) is very, very easy, did I mention quick! 

I found no CTDs (Crash to Desktop) and everything flowed very well with ease and comfort from the remote screen and keyboard access over both on board UNS 1 units.

 

Build one flightplan in a UNS 1, then XFILL (crossfill) over to the other unit, click the arrow top to check it is all inserted.... DONE!

Adding in your fuel data is also very easy, fill in your fuel loading data both from SimBrief and the JPad.

Once in the air, again the WebFMC Pro is brilliant for route following in data (I even use or see the current data on my iPhone if I have to move away from the desktop!)

The v1.8.0 updated WebFMC Pro is a gem for doing this input work on the Q4XP from your keyboard, a certain must have if you have the FlyJSim aircraft. I don't have the HotStart Challenger 650 aircraft to show you how the WebFMC Pro works with three screens, but if it becomes available, I will add in the information below.

Still super brilliant and a worthy tool for X-Plane routing...  for WebFMC Pro it is always a big YES! from me.

Probably a typo or an earlier release...  we are at v1.8.0...  not v1.0.9? 

There may be some confusion. I also wondered about the release numbers…

The way I interpret this is that the version of WebFMC is 1.80 and it requires version 1.0.9 of q4xp.
