Freeware Hughes 500D for X-Plane

Updated on September 09, 2019.

2FlyReal Dynamics is an advanced plugin which introduces into the X-Plane flight model some helicopter characteristics such as translational lift, translating tendency, ground effect and vortex ring state.

It introduces blade slap and cockpit vibration sounds as well, in situations such as high-g maneuvering, fast pitch changes and approach descents.

The plugin was designed for professional use by Carlos Palacio for 2FlySim. This is a freeware copy and it is limited to the freeware Hughes 500D by BrettS available here.

With any other model the plugin simply will not work. The blade slap and cockpit vibration sounds contained in the plugin folders are from an AW139.

Feel free to change them if you wish. The author of the sound files is Marco Ferrarello.

Theory used in this plugin is taken from the book "Helicopter Test and Evaluation" (2002), Alastair K. Cooke and Eric W. H. Fitzpatrick, Blackwell Science Ltd, Oxford.

As a freeware software, this plugin is intended only for personal use. It is forbidden any professional or commercial use of it. Use it under your responsibility. And have fun.
