Did Milviz just released their Bell 407 and MD530 for P3Dv4 quietly??

Recommended Posts

They sure did. They are not shown as P3D V4 on there products page but if you already own them you can download via your Milviz account.

release notes say V4 gauges and there is a V4 option in the installer. Finally some decent choppers for V4:laugh:

Never been any descent choppers for the ESP platform due to rediculous helicopter physics :laugh:

The 530 and 407 are both listed as V3 on their site. 

Where did this information come from?

 Check the support forums if you already own the helicopters. The updates to P3DV4 are there.

Yeah. The vendors don't have to say anything. We do it for them here in the forums. LOL

The 407 and 530 are really on very short final.  The 530 has been tested and is stable and probably ready to go, but a few more tests won't hurt while we work on the final few things for the 407.  There were a couple of engine start/restart issues in unusual circumstances that were solved late last week.  If nothing pops up during regression testing expect to see both the 407 and 530 for P3V4 shortly.  While the graphics are mostly the same as previous versions, there have been internal tweaks and adjustments for better more realistic flight.

We don't want to release something with known bugs.  Finding and fixing them just takes time.

Helicopter flight dynamics are a big joke in P3D. If you love flying helicopters in the ESP platform, I will suggest you try out a small freeware program called HTR (Helicopter Total Realism). This comes with many preset, and more presets can be downloaded for free. This will take the flight dynamics outside of P3D, and will give you completely different flight dynamics which are way more realistic. More like you can find in X-plane and Take On Helicopters. Highly recommended. I haven't tried this in P3D v4 yet, but I think it will work :)

I bought the Eurocopter AS350  ASSUMING I'd see a P3dv4 in the executable.  No.  Paid for it and now I don't have the right version.  Hopefully, I'll soon see the correct version from Milviz.  I picked version 3 when I bought it but again, ASSUMED I'd see a p3dv4 when I hit the exe.  You know what they say about A-S-S-U-M_E.

Mark.   I just downloaded it . Thanks.

Secondly, Milviz emailed me and gave me a link for the 4.2 beta version for the MD530F.   Works great but requires very little throttle.  Too much throttle makes the engine die, and she crashes to the ground.  Easy throttle seems to be the only solution to smooth flight.  But it WORKS in 4.2

I just installed that MD530 as well. Very nice. Haven't noticed any throttle problems yet though.

I like to figure out a way to get the GTN750 into the console. Also, I'm going to install the auto pilot posted here a while back. I installed that thing on the Alabeo R66 and it worked great after using Jorge's yaw(?) fix.

Cheers,

Mark

Flight1 snuck the v4-compatible Super King Air B200 in in the same manner AFAIK.  Been waiting for that one...

Sadly, the existing F-15E will never be updated.  Sorry.

That's a shame about the F-15e. Never mind that when am I getting the my 737-200 for P3D V4? I am sick of that flying  computer the NGX :laugh:. I would much rather have my 737-200c otherwise know as stumpy.
