EARLY ACCESS WARNING!
Powered by Prop-o-Tronic!
For the P3D/FSX Vega, we developed an extensive library of algorithms that are used to simulate the various physical systems, environments and states of the aircraft. This physics engine was named "Prop-o-Tronic" and is part of the add-on package.
What does it do?
Meet your crew!
As a young man, Heinrich Adler left his hometown in Germany to escape the devastating effects of WWI. He immigrated to the United States and due to his keen interest in aviation, sought out a job as a “rampie”. He’s eagerly saving up money, hoping to eventually take flying lessons and jump into the cockpit of a Lockheed!
You can initiate communication with Heinrich using the "Talk to your ramp agent" button on the side-bar on the left side of your screen. From there, you can advise him to install or uninstall the various ground equipment that comes with the aircraft. Such as wheel chocks, pitot tube covers, external battery, passenger stairs, etc. Heinrich will respond to your instructions audibly and start working on the task(s) you give him. Once the job is done, he'll let you know as well. The aim of this feature is to improve immersion and realism for our add-ons. We're trying to make the experience more personal, by adding face and voice to crew members.
Watch the trailer for v. 0.85 and see some reviews!

Vega startup procedure by Dad Gametime:
We prepared a full set of photoshop files so you can design your own Vega livery in a few minutes. Go crazy! And don't forget to share the result with us on social media. (ATTENTION! BIG FILE! ~362 MB!)
Need a checklist?
But wait, there's more! We prepared some checklists to go along with the Vega. Make sure not to miss any items, to avoid malfunctions of your equipment!
Learn about history
But wait, there's more! In addition to the simulation manual, the add-on comes with a ~70 page e-book about the history of the aircraft. After the installation of the add-on, you will find the PDF, together with all the other documents under: [your msfs content folder]\community\wing42_bleriot_xi\documentation
