Jan 28 2014 FSXPilot V 1.2 for Android available on Google Play +++++++++++++
Hi. It's play time again.
We always wanted it and now we have it: Our brand new android version. With more than 1 billion devices out there and 1.5 millions activated every day it was a shame not to have superior flightsim apps on the market. Check the play store.
Now that is over. This app unpacks the whole power of the FSXPilot project on your phone device. Input things and waypoint control are done on your phone / tablet, the rest is performed by the extremely powerful FSXP standard software on your flightsim computer.
With FSXPilot for android, you have a versatile and clever new flighsim controller on your android phone or tablet. Also great stuff for reactivating your old phone. Possibilities of operation are endless. Plan your sightseeing flights with real world landmarks on google map - simply tapping your waypoints onto the screen and follw the plane turning into the new headings. Break all kinds of records by long distance flights controlled over your phone - why not fly around the world ? Try ground taxi on a system with P3D installed and you will be absolutely amazed. Send all kinds of inflight commands to your aircraft - flight level , speed and heading changes, holding commands, GPS- or ILS autoland commands. Even turn your engines off / on via the phone and release the wheelbrakes.
Play time again !
FSXPilot is the world's leading and most versatile autopilot for fixed wing aircraft and helicopters in flight simulation.
This program was started in Orbiter Space Simulation and later ported to the Microsoft Flight Simulator. FSXPilot also works great in Prepar3D, even in the brand new version 2. Especially for you P3D users we have recently (1.37) added support for "the beast" Raptor F22 :-) Currently, we develop for FSX/Prepar3D only, but there are still (old and limited) versions for FS9 available for download.
FSXPilot is freeware. Be warned: After you've learned FSXPilot, you will be able to fly them all and won't go without it ...
After the install, FSXPilot will open in two separate windows on your desktop screen. The main window is for autopilot control, the EFIS window is for navigation. The best way to use FSXPilot is to start FSX (windowed mode only) and later start FSXPilot with it's two separate windows. You can position the FSXpilot windows on your screen wherever you want and save this position as your default. If FSX is in windowed mode you might experience a "stop" of the flight simulator when you click another window on your screen. This "stop" can be switched off in FSX options. FSX full screen and FSXPilot is only possible if you have two monitors attached to your computer.
An updated version of FSXPilot (1.41) was published on Jan 28 2014.
This is a service update which mainly brings true heading orientation to your android app for perfect alignment of your aircraft icon on the app's googlemap.
However, upon request we implemented one new feature for the public: Select "take me to finals runway ..." from the quickselect menu after selecting a runway and you will be brought to an appropriate position where FSXPilot hands over the control to the captain for manual landing.
The story behind the latest versions:
1.38 was published early because in selected AMD graphic cards we had reports of "trail" symptoms which were resolved by a workaround. Seondly, a new windcorrection was implemented. Imagine flying towards East against a GPS fix with a strong and gusty wind from the North. FSXPilot will now calculate the correct windcorrection heading angle in degrees and compensate for the winddrift. Result: Much more precise GPS autolandings in bad weather. Go "Flight Status" ( -> scroll to page 2) on the EFIS screen after locking a target to see the windcorrection in degrees.
