Utility Review | FlyAGI lua Tweak Utility

Once an a while there’s something that triggers Angelique’s attention. This time she was seeking for a lua utility that could do a bit more then she normally sees. Together with the recent update of X-Plane to version 11.30r3, she ran into trouble with her clouds, but she found, not only for clouds, a interesting freeware utility; FlyAGI Tweak Utility.

We should do this more. We from X-Plained.Com should do more freeware reviews since it’s fun seeing what developers can make. FlyAGI does have an own website in German and English. It’s more a forum, but with some interesting downloads too. One of them deals with this utility review. According to Angelique “I think I covered most of the FlyAGI Tweak Utility. It was not my intention to write a thorough review, although it has become a much longer story then planned.”

She continues “Anyway, I like this tiny freeware lua package and although we at X-Plained can’t host is, it’s worth to download it from the FlyAGI website and give it a try. Feedback of your experience is always welcome and perhaps you come up with good ideas to be added to the product and perhaps the developer is willing to implement that.”

Utility Review | XP Realistic Pro

Although Angelique van Campen had a lot of fun reviewing XPRealistic Pro, it wasn’t easy to write a review about this utility. But she finally found the flow. She’s pleased to offer you an in-depth review of XPRealistic Pro version 1.0.92, tested on macOS Mojave withX-Plane 10.26r2 with different FlyWithLua plugins.

According to Angelique “An aircraft, whatever kind of, an airport or a scenery or sometimes utility programs that can be touched in one way or the other are easy to write about. In that respect, XPRealistic Pro is difficult to see, to touch or to experience. I could make a movie, but there are already so many out there, even the developer has made a couple, so why should I add another one. I prefer to look to the facts, to settings that can be made and so on.”

Great add-on that works more or less out of the box. Curious what Angelique has to say? Check it out … here’s the comprehensive review link. Enjoy!

Utility Review | WebFMC

A remote FMS CDU/MCDU is always worth to investigate. Such an add-on software could be very helpful. With that in mind, your personal reporter Angelique van Campen decided to take a closer look into the Green Arc Studios WebFMC Pro.

It’s actually an X-Plane plugin which is very handy since it can present the aircraft CDU/MCDU on any remote hardware device. The plugin works with Windows, Mac and Linux and most external Android or iOS equipment. How that all works, how easy it is to use it and how stable it is. Check out our Green Arc Studios WebFMC Pro review.

According to Angelique “This was fun. And yes, the multiplatform usability makes Green Arc Studios WebFMC a strong product. As mentioned before, it can be used with X-Plane for Windows, Mac and Linux and besides that, you can also use remote devices running Android or iOS. And not unimportant, the constant growing list of supported aircraft. Oh yes, I could write that this and that add-on payware aircraft is missing, but those are also on the developers wish-list to add to his list when time permits.”

Aircraft Review | C177 Cardinal X-Plane 11

 

We’re pleased to offer you an in-depth review of the Alabeo C177 Cardinal for X-Plane 11, but first, let me introduce you Bruce Knight, our new reviewer and real licensed PPL pilot. It’s my pleasure to have Bruce being a member of our team. We’re both looking forward to see many reviews from his hand.

Bruce his first review isn’t just a review … it’s a comprehensive realistic examination of this Alabeo aircraft. According to Bruce “In full disclosure I have never flown a Cessna-177, however I do have significant time in a C-172 and have flown a C-182 with a CFI onboard. Both of these real aircraft are very stable and exhibit a heavy and stable feel, which is translated into the Cessna-177 very well. I am very impressed by the stability of the flight model, almost to the point that I feel it’s a shame to use the autopilot and let “George” have all the fun!”

And Bruce thinks that “For anyone who wants to step into the world of “complex aircraft” from a slower C-172 or similar, this product by Alabeo is a beautiful way to do that.”

Aircraft Review | P-47N Thunderbolt

Historical aircraft are always fun to review and therefore, we’re pleased to inform you that our dedicated reviewer Andy Clarke took a close look in, around, under, up-side-down or whatever you like, the FlyingIron Republic P-47N Thunderbolt fighter.

According to Andy “This a highly detailed model and possesses real war time character with a choice of liveries which all carry appropriate wear weathering marks. The aircraft looks great whether viewed from inside or outside and with much of the equipment modelled to use as the real thing or cleverly adapted to integrate original systems with X-Plane.”

Andy continues “It is fun to fly when simply loaded and flown and the interest is extended to working guns. Navigation is assisted by the clever inclusion of a Garmin GPS pop out.” but there’s so much more Andy want to tell you.

Check it out, and take your time, to read Andy’s comprehensive P-47N review.

Utility Review | Haversine AirEFB App

Released for you just before Black Friday 2018 … written for you by your personal reporter Angelique van Campen, an in-depth review of the Haversine AirEFB iPad app. It took some time to organise all the possibilities, and then the time to put it all together, but Angelique finally managed in that.

According to here “I hope that this review adds a bit more background to the Haversine AirEFB add-on. It’s a very nice tool, and Haversine offers you to a maximum 100MB cloud space to upload your charts and/or documents.”

And she continues “the Haversine Air plugin to my Mac X-Plane 11, remember that the latest Haversine Air plugin works with all its 3 platforms, MacWindows and Linux in 32 and 64 bit formats.”
