Hello,

I'm looking to purchase X-Plane 11, and wanted to know whether it was compatible with the R22 plug-in from dream foil creations? And if the Puma model hardware was compatible?

Many Thanks,

Phoebe

Hi  Phoebe

I'm not with Laminar Research, just a fellow simmer in the UK, but if you click on the following link to LR's website, you will see that the Robinson R22 Beta II by DreamFoil (if this is what you are referring to?) is available for X-Plane 10.20 or higher:-

https://store.x-plane.org/Robinson-R22-Beta-II_p_221.html#tab-4

As far as the 'Puma model hardware' is concerned, I'm not entirely certain whether you are referring to another aircraft addon i.e. a Puma helicopter, or possibly the Pro Flight Trainer PUMA helicopter flying control hardware?

If it is the latter, then the following link may be useful:- https://www.helicoptersonly.com/contents/en-us/d344_Page_367.html which states that X-Plane does support this equipment.

I've also looked at X-Plane 11's file structure and there does appear to be a configuration file for the Pro Flight Trainer shown below:-

Hope this helps?

Regards

Hi,

Thats super helpful thank you. I was referring to the Pro Flight trainer. I'm going to have gaps in flying and wanted to try and keep the rust off my flying by using a simulator. I've heard good things about the Puma, but wanted to primarily use it for R22 flying. Thanks

Hi Paul,

I've just gone to buy X-Plane 11 and the R22 Plug-in, however on this website, it says it isn't compatible with version 11, only 10. It's the same Plug-in isn't it?

https://www.aerosoft.com/en/flight-simulation/xplane-10/aircraft/1008/robinson-r22-beta-ii

Any ideas?

Phoebe

Oh that's annoying, as on LR's own website, it just states X-Plane 10.20 or higher, no mention of it not being compatible with X-Plane 11???

I have however found quite a number of YouTube videos showing the Robinson R22 Beta being used in X-Plane 11

Hope this helps?

Hi Paul,

Just received a reply to my question from X-Plane, (who have assumed I am male). 

Hello Mr. Fraser,
unfortunately the R22 DreamFoil is only working with X-Plane 10.
Sorry for that.

With friendly greetings, Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

Hi Phoebe

I suppose if that's Aerosoft's official position, then fair enough, but as you will see from the following URL links, other simmers are definitely using the Robinson R44 in X-Plane 11??
