Recommended Posts

Project Airbus Wilco merge A380-800_v1.2.1 for FSX by David Chen (Dec. 2011)Notice:1. You MUST have Wilco A380 v2 installed first or this will not work properly.2. This merge is for FSX only. FSX SP2 or Acceleration pack is recommended.3. Wilco's load manager does NOT work, but configuration tool and key config tool work pefectly.4. Read the description below to know more about fuel planning (IMPORTANT).What is included in this package?1. A380 merge (Wilco panel + Wilco VC + Project Airbus model)2. GPWS sounds update3. FSBuild performance data (for those who uses FSBuild for fuel calculation)4. Performance data for those who uses Wilco tool for fuel planning5. Some useful documents of A380 (read description below).What's new?1. Autobrake problem fixed.2. Engine data modified.Fuel planning:Some people use Wilco planning tool to calculate the fuel they need. However, the Wilco's data are not realistic since the real world A380-800s consume more fuel than Wilco's calculation. So, it is recommended to use FSBuild (payware) for fuel planning. FSBuild performance data is offered for you. If you use Wilco's tool for fuel calculation, you MUST use another aircraft.cfg (follow item "D" in the part of "Installation").Documents description:There are some docs in this package, including:1. A380_Totorial_UK: An official tutorial from Wilco's website.2. AC_A380_20101101: Aircraft data from airbus.com. From page 106 to 136, you can find some useful performance data. For example, in page 116 you can find a chart to calculate takeoff distance. In page 129 is a chart of landing distance.3. spec_imperial and spec_metric: Aircraft limitation and information about weight and balance, fuel capability, etc.Installation:A. Aircraft merge1. Copy the .fx files (in "Effects" folder) to \Flight Simulator X\Effects.2. Copy "Project Airbus Wilco merge A380-800" folder to \Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes.3. Only Airbus livery is included in the package. Download more repaints from http://www.pairbus.com/B. GPWS sounds updateCopy all files in "sounds" folder to Flight Simulator X\Wilco\A380v2\Sounds and overwrite all existing ones.C. FSBuild performance data1. Open folder "FSBuild performance data"2. Copy A380.PRF to \Program Files\FSBuild\Aircraft3. Add following text into \Program Files\FSBuild\fsb_Aircraft.cfg.[A380-800 w/ Trent 972/B] --- (David Chen) ---WeightUnit=KGSOperEmptyWeight=276940PayloadWeight=80000ReserveFuel=:45AlternateFuel=HoldFuel=93/minTaxiFuel=25/minExtraFuel=ApproachFuel=330MaxTakeoffWeight=560000MaxZeroFuelWeight=361000MaxLandingWeight=386000MaxFuelWeight=257336ImageFile=PerformanceData=A380.prf;ToldData=;DefaultTOFlaps=;climb 250/300/m85;crz LR;dsc m82/300/250D. Performance data for Wilco fuel planning tool1. Open folder "Performance data for Wilco fuel planning tool"2. Copy the aircraft.cfg to \Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\Project Airbus Wilco merge A380-800/ and overwrite.Known issue:ZFWCG cannot be calculated be FMGC. Instead, it remains 25%. But this would not matter in virtual flight simulation.Why not merge with Project Airbus A380's VC?Since PA's VC version is originally for FS2004, there are some problems when it is used in FSX. For example, some textures are black and some are loaded without correct position. Even some lights are not properly operating in either virtual cockpit or 2D panel. Due to these issues, I decided not to merge PA's VC now.Special thanks to:Project Airbus Develop TeamFor any problem, please contact me via davidchen9568@gmail.comHope you have a nice flight!
