    vFlyteAir - Piper Arrow III

    The newest release of the Arrow III is VR ready! If you have X-Plane 11.20b3 or newer, you will enjoy an amazing virtual reality flight in the Arrow III.

    Other new features and fixes for the Arrow III version 5.1 are:

    New Features

    • NEW CUSTOM AIRFOILS - Created by Alan Shafto of AeroSim Gaming, the new airfoils improve the ground handling and performance of the Arrow III
    • VR READY - The Arrow III is now virtual reality ready. Tested and developed with X-Plane 11.20b3, the Arrow III is fully compatible with X-Plane's VR mode, and is great fun to fly in VR!
    • ON-SCREEN MENUS NOW RE-POSITIONABLE AND RE-SIZABLE. SIZES AND POSITIONS SAVED ON EXIT - You can now move the small control icon anywhere you prefer on the screen. The Options, Weight & Balance and Check Lists panels can also be moved and resized. When you unload the Arrow III or quit X-Plane, the sizes and positions will be saved and restored on your next flight.
    • RUDDER TRIM NOW ANIMATED ON RUDDER AND RUDDER PEDALS - According to one of our real-world Arrow pilots, the Arrow III does not have a traditional rudder trim tab. Instead, the rudder trim actually moves the rudder itself, and you can see the movement in the rudder pedals also.

    Bug Fixes

    • GROUND HANDLING IMPROVED - Some users reported problems with ground handling during take-offs and landings - the Arrow III would veer left or right and become uncontrollable. The new airfoils by Alan Shafto and some other changes to the flight model have improved, if not eliminated, this problem. We asked ten volunteers who had experienced the problem to beta test the new version, and they have reported that the issue has been fixed.
    • Fixed dimmer brightness ratio for OBS1 - OBS1 has a separate dimmer knob from the rest of the instrument panel
    • Fixed errors in SND file due to use of CUE_TRIGGER_COND with no CUEs defined in the Master Bank. Also fixed some missing indices for wild card datarefs

    vFlyteAir - Piper Arrow III

    The Arrow III has been optimized for improved frame rates. We have measured an increase in frame rates from 6 to 12 FPS better performance on a variety of computer platforms, including a MacBook Air laptop, a Mac Mini, and an AlienWare X51.

    The Arrow now features the X-Plane 10.3 Garmin G430 GPS with pop-up hi-res screen! Very detailed model with fully animated landing gear.

      I don't know if die hard and true MSFS users, who have now moved to P3D..up to V4+, but also tried XP11....realize that XP11 is an amazing sim and in many respects better then P3D and keeps getting better by leaps and bounds as developer use the easy to use wonderful tools available for making planes and scenery.

      I am now torn.....recently adding several new addons for XP11 and P3D the first sim I fire up is XP11.

      Can I get a patch for my current version of the Arrow III (Purchased 2/18)?
