If you have bought any X-Hangar.com products recently, be sure to look for, and expose, the "Digital Downloads" page after you have logged in.  There may be updates to models that you have already purchased.  When in doubt, download and compare the .ACF file dates.


The same is true for stuff bought at the X-Plane.org Store.  Login, go to "My Account" and click on the "Complete Order History and Downloads" link to the right of the Orders section header.  Review the individual orders to see if the version numbers are higher than what you have on hand ...or download 'em again and compare the .ACF dates.


I just discovered that the x-hangar.com "Order History" page was not accurately listing my prior purchases.  I bought the GA8 Airvan again, only to discover that the updated model was already available to me at "Digital Downloads" via the previous purchase.  Oh well, now I've got two Airvans.

Thanks for that sir!


A guy can't have too many Airvans... I guess :P

Might need some help with the Cessna CT210 Turbo Centurion model suggested in the locator links.  I updated the model in Planemaker, but the prop simply windmills both standing and flying. Is there a fix for this?


Is there an alternative that doesn't cost $29.95?

If you are refering to the freeware link that Alaskadad posted for David Austin's version, then perhaps one needs to run it through V9 planemaker first and then V10. Unsure as I have the Carenado version and haven't tried the freeware.


If you are speaking of gofigure's find by Flydrive7, then I am unsure and maybe gofigure could speak into this.


If no other solutions present themselves through consideration of the above, the next best aircraft to use which is at least comparable would be the Beechcraft Bonanza or the Piper Maibu, which of course make for lousy sightseeing aircraft given their low-wing configurations.

Hey, if it flies normally while the prop is only windmilling, just think of the gas you'll save!   :lol:

@Sticky:  Very true!  I hadn't thought of that!

There's a problem though and that's the flight model "using gas" anyway since the engine is at Cruise.  Drat!  I thought we had something there. :P


I managed to get one of those updated in V9 first (per BC), then moved it over to V10 and updated it again.  That worked!

The cessna 210 is derived from a Cessna 182, basic same plane. 210 a turbo w retractable gear.

Some 182s are turbo but no retracable gear, I don't think the Heinz182 is a turbo.


I may use the Heinz 182 model because of the not so good freeware models.

Yes gofigure, thanks for that. This would be a better choice if one cannot use the 210, noting that the 182 is slower though but not ridiculously so.

Hi guys, I've been gone a while and found myself available tonight to fly. I was going to join you but I only have 4 of the 6 planes and the one you are using tonight is one of the two that I don't have. LOL

If you have a Cessna 182 (look in locator links - see top of page) then you can use it to sub for the Airvan. Should come close enough.
