On a post at the x-plane.org's forums, Fred spills the beans on everything they have workd on for this version. There are a lot of changes, including some amazing flight model ones, as well as VR support.

Check it out:

Bell 407 for X-Plane 11.10 / 11.20 VR1

Version 1.02


- Added hotspots for all seats

- Added cyclic and collective manipulators

- Improved some manipulators axis to give an intuitive and natural movement

- Changed knob manipulators to made possible to spin them with touch controllers

****** SmartMenu still not working on VR! It's not possible to draw or interact with plugins on VR at moment, we need to wait for further VR updates from Laminar ******


- Improved basket objects so they work correctly with fog

- Fixed missing shadow for Ext_5 object

- Airspeed gauge now can go above 140kts (max 165kts)

- Added missing nav light ball mesh on right side (repaints need to fix the missing texture detail)


- Refined turbine TRQ, MGT and NG values

- FADEC now modulate the fuel in order to keep MGT below max during startup

Flight model:

- New airfoils for Main and Tail Rotor

- Improved vertical fin incidence angle & airfoil

- Improved horizontal stabilizer incidence angle & airfoil, this results in a higher fwd cyclic requirement on cruise like real helicopter

- Fixed MR lateral cant angle

- MR Flap hinge is now set to correct position acordingly to maintenance manual

- Plugin tweak for below ETL taxing, helicopter should maintain the altitude at very low airspeeds

- Plugin driven TFE (Transverse Flow Effect)

- Improved TR min/max pitches for more realistic pedal hover and flight conditions

- Corrected MR blade chord size incorrectly set based on feet unit

- Added MR blade twist

- Repositioned all flight elements arms with precision acordingly to maintenance manual

- Adjusted aft and fwd CG limits


- Added Flight-Model Enhancements (ETL, TFE and Landing Gear friction)

- Added option to remove doors

- Removed interaction distance limit


- Controls now transition from normal to stabilized, no more abrupt changes when turning on/off

* SAS light will flash during transition to warn pilot, during this time avoid enabling any SAS feature like heading hold or vertical speed hold

* Transition time is available on global.cfg file, default = 5 seconds

- Improved PID values from vertical speed hold

- Increased altitude hold authority

- HeliSAS now disables if a hydraulic failure is identified

- Frahm damper dynamics are now disabled for hydraulic failure


- Garmin power is now automatically set to ON during aircraft load with engines running

- Fixed ON / OFF commands incorrectly acting as a toggle


- Increased gain and added blade slap volume slider back
