News! - Released : Guimbal Cabri G2 Heli by vSkyLabs


Is there nothing that vSkyLabs can't do? We have had from them... classic aircraft, experimental aircraft, lightweight aircraft and even pre-war aircraft, now here we have a helicopter in the Guimbal Cabri G2. The Guimbal is a two-seat light helicopter produced by Hélicoptères Guimbal, it is powered by a Lycoming O-360-J2A piston engine, 108 kW (145 hp). It was designed by Bruno Guimbal, a former Eurocopter engineer.

Remember that all vSkyLabs aircraft are projects and not final release aircraft, you sorta participate in the development more than the final result... in saying that then this Cabri G2 is already very well formed and quite complete.


Cockpit is very well appointed and detailed, and surprisingly the Cabri G2 very easy to fly, so it is a great nice little heli to learn on if you want to try to fly helicopters.

Rotor head is very well constructed, and animated but only in the collective pitch and not direction.

The Guimbal is optimized for VR functionality. This means that the cockpit can be operated with maximum comfort and fluency using VR controllers...


Features include:

  • Project under constant development: Development plan and evolution are including EVERY aspect of the project (3D modeling and textures, flight dynamics modeling, fmod sounds, interactivity, systems etc...).
  • Highly engineered, robust helicopter simulation which pushes X-Plane's out-of-the-box features and flight dynamics model to its extent.
  • Highly detailed visualization of the Guimbal Cabri G2 helicopter.
  • Designed for Virtual Reality experience, including a FULL-VR mode which enables to operate and fly the Cabri without using physical hardware for the pedals.
  • Engineered as a 'Native X-Plane aircraft': Maximum X-Plane compatibility without the use of 3rd party plugins or external coding dependencies. 
  • Day/Night VFR instrumentation.
  • Electronic Pilot Monitor (EPM) - Simplified yet authentic and effective EPM display.
  • Built in compatibility with the AviTab plugin for 3D and VR AviTab visualization and interaction.
  • Optional Experimental/LSA grade autopilot included.
  • Perfect for new helicopter pilots and for helicopter conversion for fixed wings aircraft pilots -  due to its docile flying characteristics and simple yet effective design features.
