What’s New in Version 4.8.6

Turbo Porter XP12 Fixes

  • Tailwheel Lock Lever: A critical fix has been made to the tailwheel lock lever, which was not functioning as expected. This correction enhances the ground handling and taxiing experience.
  • External Tanks: The REP fuel system now fully supports external tanks, addressing a major issue where the external tanks were previously unsupported.

Beaver XP12 Fixes and Improvements

  • Hypoxia Effect: The hypoxia effect, which simulates the physiological impact of high altitudes on pilots, was missing and has now been restored.
  • Tie-Down Walkaround View: The left tie-down walkaround view was incorrectly positioned. This has been corrected to ensure an accurate pre-flight inspection experience.
  • Carb-Heat Gauge: The carb-heat gauge now displays the correct value, ensuring accurate engine management and performance.
  • Tow View Improvement: The tow view has been improved, providing a better perspective and enhancing the realism during towing operations.

Cessna 172 Fix

  • Center of Gravity: The center of gravity (CG) was too aft in X-Plane 12.1. This fix corrects the CG, ensuring better stability and handling during flight.
