VSkyLabs Guimbal Cabri G2, Version 1.2b1

VSkyLabs Aerospace Simulations has released version 1.2b1 with respect to the developers Guimbal Cabri G2 helicopter for X-Plane 11.  Version 1.2b1 features various improvements to helicopter flight dynamics, VR optimization, paint items, and FMOD sounds.  Keep in mind, this is the second product update since initial release – the first being version 1.1b1.

Please see below for a new demonstration video concerning improved blade sounds.

Next, see a complete update changelog according to the developer.

  • Flight Dynamics
    • Performance tune-up for cruise.
    • Propulsion system tune-up for power.
    • Autorotation rotor behavior tune-up.
    • Handling and stability tune-up.
  • VR Experience
    • VRconfig.txt file added (realistic yoke and hot-spots defined for both seats – enabling the right seat realistic yoke requires a minor edit in the VRconfig.txt file).
    • Grip-zone for the throttle in non-full-VR collective mode was added to allow more comfortable operation of the collective, as it is lacking of real-life-friction, making it hard to maintain desired throttle setting.
    • VR X-Plane’s iPad is now squeezed between the left seat and the mid-pedestal-panel (magnet point defined).
  • 3D Modeling
    • Emergency inflatable floats were removed until the system is fully operational (future update).
    • Paint-kit mapping update: now it is possible to paint underneath the Cabri as well.
    • Added VSKYLABS livery.
  • FMOD Sounds
    • Rotor blades sounds layers were added (experimental).
    • 3D surround sound adjustments for head movement.

The above changelog information is available via the project update log.  If you’d like to learn more about the VSkyLabs Cabri G2, check out the official product page.
