*** VSKYLABS NOTAMs - July 2018 ***
(content is being updated daily on a 'need-to' basis)

ALWAYS MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE USING THE LATEST VERSION OF YOUR VSKYLABS MODEL
The VSKYLABS models are being maintained as real-life aircraft. Periodic "inspections" and constant development are part of any project. You are invited to follow the VSKYLABS Facebook page, as it is one of the first places to get update and release news.

VRCONFIG FILES ARE UNDER DEVELOPMENT
The VR config file is a complementary configuration file for VR operations and it is a powerful "layer" of settings your VR controller interactions. The VRCONFIG file for each relevant project will be available soon.

The VSKYLABS Guimbal Cabri G2 Project

The VSKYLABS Guimbal Cabri G2 Project


After the needed approvals were completed, I am very excited to announce that a VSKYLABS Helicopter project release is now scheduled for 2018! It is the Guimbal Cabri G2 Helicopter produced by Hélicoptères Guimbal.

The project was acknowledged by Hélicoptères Guimbal, however it is an independent VSKYLABS project which is not affiliated with or endorsed by Hélicoptères Guimbal.

The default Cabri G2 variant will be carrying the BC Helicopters Cabri G2 (C-GELP) paint scheme and other detailing attributes. BC Helicopters are also having a very exciting YouTube channel ('Pilot Yellow') in which they share their daily routine, flying practices and adventures. It is a highly recommended resource for practical information regarding Helicopter flying and specifically the Cabri G2. Please note that the VSKYLABS project is not affiliated with BC Helicopters.

Project highlight:
  • Realistic simulation of the Guimbal Cabri G2 Helicopter.
  • Designed as a "Native-X-Plane" aircraft, pushing X-Plane's out-of-the-box features and physical engine to it's limits, without any 3rd party dependencies. 
  • Focus on handling and performance - The VSKYLABS Cabri G2 Helicopter is highly engineered to allow a robust helicopter simulation for pilot training, resulting in an accurate simulation within reasonable margins comparing to the real Guimbal G2. Flying characteristics are thoroughly being tested and evaluated by real-world pilots. 
  • Designed and optimized for full VR operations. 
  • FMOD sounds package included. 
Additional information:
  • The VSKYLABS Guimbal Cabri G2 Project is perfect for basic and 1st helicopter conversion for fixed wings aircraft pilots.
