Out of the VR Lab: Bell 429 Freeware by Timber61

This fantastic freeware helicopter only needed a few tweaks to get her to excellence in VR.  The cyclic and collective are now usable with VR Touch controllers, and some knobs were corrected and tuned, as well as teleport hotspots added for Pilot and Copilot positions.

Currently, this mod only works with the default version of the aircraft, not the WLG mod (the one with landing gear/wheels)  This version will be added in a future update.


Manipulators that have been tweaked to work in VR are:

-Cyclic stick
-ADF 1 knobs
-ADF 2 knobs
-Fan forward knob
-Fan aft knob
-Fan temp knob
-Console brightness knob orientation corrected and
-Analog Barometer knob changed from axis and tuned
-Custom Teleport Hotspots Added


Installation Instructions:

I recommend making a backup copy of your X-plane 11/Aircraft/Bell 429 folder.  Just rename it to something like Bell 429 Old, so you can easily just revert back if you need to.

Step 1. Unzip the file and you'll find 2 files.   Add both the Bell429_vrconfig.txt file and the Bell429_cockpit.obj to your Aircraft's root folder, overwrite.

Step 2.  Enjoy!


Disclaimer: This is not an officially supported Timber61 update, so don't expect support from them on it. If you need help you can always ask me or just revert to your backed up folders. If you lose the old files and just want to reset everything just reinstall the aircraft.




You must be a member of the club to download any files so please go ahead and join up, otherwise you will get an error.
