    HU - Adam A500 and A700 on Avsim now.

    FYI - just found these interesting aircraft on Avsim.

    Category: Flight Simulator X - Original Aircraft

    File Description:
    Adam A500 twin inline engine and Adam A700 turbofan jet. These models are highly detailed. The models were developed with the FSX Sp2 SDK. The models will also work well in FSX Steam and Prepar3d.

    I installed them earlier this afternoon and took them for a very quick flight.

    I'm impressed.

    Pete.

    Looks very good. I've been waiting a good Adam 500 for FS a long time, now i finally get and totally free. Thank you for developer, very outstanding job.
    Would be nice to get GTN 750 installed to cockpit.

    Simon made all the Fs Addon aircraft, including the Hudson and Anson so this should be good.

    Well, they "look" nice from the exterior, but despite a pretty simple installation I have a black interior with just a few glass avionics showing, no steam gauges and no interior textures. Anyone else?
    I don't use the "Airplanes" folder for addon aircraft, but that shouldn't affect the installation which is very straight forward.

    Anyone else?

    NOTE: Change the path in the texture.cfg file if you put your aircraft anywhere except the Airplanes folder.

    I have installed outside the default P3Dv4.5 folder and have changed nothing,
    they works fine for me out of the box, in-and outside.
    Really great freeware, absolutely recommended.

    Everything working fine in FSX Gold, mfd's and interior textures for both aircraft no problems.

    Just finished test flying both aircraft and I'm absolutely in love with both of them! Years back, I was wondering if we'd ever get a good rendition of the A500 and A700 but lost hope due to how niche these planes are. What a surprise it was to see this new freeware addon just waiting to be downloaded, seemingly out of nowhere at that! I'm pleased to say that I'll be putting many hours on these airframes in virtual flights to come. Also, can't wait to see some repaints for these birds. Might even do a few myself.

    I installed and fell in love, long time wait for them, now just start using the paint kit

    Correct me, if you will.

    I tried yesterday add GTN 750 to A500 VC, but GTN screen stays dark in VC mode only 2D GTN works. Does anyone here have skills to add working GTN750 to VC, and replace the A500 original GPS?

    To Falcon, just in case: your gauges folder is placed where the panel.cfg command lines can find it? If it looks for items not directly in the panel directory.
    Cheers

    Thanks, however I mentioned my fix in my post above. Everyone has a different way of setting up their addons, both scenery and aircraft. I don't use the "airplanes" folder I have various folders under "SimObjects" to indicate the "Types" of aircraft. The texture.cfg file contained in the livery folder of these airplanes references the "Airplanes" folder as it's location. Mine is different so the textures were not found. As I said above I simply changed the path in the cfg file and everything worked.

    Great couple of aircraft, beautifully modeled. Deserves a sticky.
