   Changes in V 1.35

  • select near runways (within 50 nm) from EFIS quickselect menu
  • then perform ILS or GPS autolands on this runway
  • new record function (in 'Extras') to be used during taxi to and from gates, save in a flightplan, call taxi flightplan for easy ground procedures
  • ability to start/stop pushback from EFIS quickselect menu
  • get notified when a new program update is available

 Changes in V 1.34

  • better bank and pitch control
  • Extra and heavy jets autopilot more realistic
  • automatically updates your fspilot.ini

Changes in V 1.33

  • complete rewrite of the autopilot routines using a PID algorythm.
  • elimination of autopilot modes that have to be selected
  • alternatively, define your non-FSX aircraft in fsxpilot.ini
  • takeoff, cruising, minimum and approach speeds, holdingbase-leg and takeoff climb can be defined
  • much more stable in high time accelerations
  • fly long distance flights with the heavy aircraft
  • menu driven "fly ILS autolanding" after selection of an airport with ILS runways
  • all in one ILS autolanding procedure from the menu - no more select ae or select ie commands
  • taxi to runway available on ground (please switch collosion detection off :-)
  • much less complicated FSXP flightplans when generated from FSX flightplanner files
  • ETA and ETE added on EFIS information window (switch mode to 2nd window, see last page) to determine arrival times when you fly long distance
  • include holdings in your flightplan, descened or climb in holding, and fly a certain number of holdings
  • "run takeoff" now selects proper speed and climb rates and retracts gear and flaps
  • ILS autolanding now sets approach speeds and flaps and lowers gear
  • GPS autolanding uses better GPS entry points (calculates two points and uses the one closer to your current location)
  • ILS autolanding uses better approach entry points (calculates two points and uses the one closer to your current location)
  • before takeoff, you can store the current airport as "home". In the air, you can always select "fly home" from the menu
  • set predefined aircraft speeds (see above) from a flightplan (i.e. "set speed takeoffspeed")

 

Changes in V 1.32

  • Traffic bug removed: fsxpilot crashes when FSX traffic is set to medium or high

 

Changes in V 1.31

  • Bug in ILS autoland procedures removed
  • bigger holdings for the Learjet, the B737 and the B747

 

Changes in V 1.30

  • GPS autolands on almost all FSX runways
  • GPS touch-and-go's on alsmost all FSX runways
  • quickselect menu (right click top of radar screen)
  • timeaccs much improved. radar redraw is now only 1 Hz when timeacc is used.
  • fly left and right holding procedures

 

Changes in V 1.25

  • back to elevator control for the V/S autopilot (more reliable)
  • rewrite od the ILS autolanding routine in all planes (better ILS autolandings)
  • rework of FSX timeacc support
  • for the VFR flyers: ability to set short ILS runway approaches ("set ils normal / short")
  • FSXPilot is no longer a FSX child window if FSX get's started first (much better program stability)

 

Changes in V 1.24

  • Preservation of FSX sounds when clicking on the AP-panel or EEFIS - panel
  • For this effect, you MUST start FSX first, load or create your flight, and then start FSXPilot
  • Better brake effects after auto landing
  • Several autopilot modes are available for UL, aerobatic, fighter, single prop, dual prop, Jetranger or similar, B737 or similar, B747 or similar, Fighter planes, Helicopter Jetranger type and R22 type aircraft

 

Changes in V 1.23

  • ability to set speedmode from knots to mach added
  • ability of the speed autopilot to adjust to mach added
  • V/S (vertical speed) autopilot rewritten
  • V/S AP uses the elevator trim now for adjustments
  • elevator (joystick) can be used during V/S-AP controlled flights for manual adjustments
  • V/S control is now less timeacc-critical, most flightplans can be tested in 2-8x timeacc
  • EFIS mode and range switches more reliable
  • AP window textbox more reliable
  • demo flightplan EDDM_to_EDDK added. Copy the plan to your flightplan directory, load a jet to EDDM rw 26r and run the plan

 

Changes in V 1.22

  • re-sizable AP-Panel and EFIS
  • ability to 'move' the own aircraft (EFIS center) to back,middle,front and left, middle, right
  • user zoom of textsize and EFIS symbols
  • auto save of position, size and zoom parameters via options dialog
  • initial AP and EFIS window sizes now normal
  • new menu entry to restore normal window sizes
  • new flightplan commands: 'timeacc plus' and 'timeacc minus' corresponding to the FSX function keys

 

Changes in V 1.1
