IndiaFoxtEcho – Rutan Model 61 Long–EZ v1.2.5

Note: Documentation located inside “indiafoxtecho-aircraft-long-ez/SimObjects/Airplanes/Indiafoxtecho_LongEZ/docs/LongEZManual.pdf”.

– Fixed Garmin Aera “no buttons” interaction
– Improved roll rate
– Added landing light
– Changed Virtual Cockpit LOD min size to 1
– Preliminary implementation of stick collision for Virtual Reality (may not work correctly, we are having all sorts of problems with VR in SU7, so we cannot grant full compatibility.)
– Fixed Garmin Aera display (broken after SU6)
– Canopy variable now linked to aircraft variable (should work fine in multiplayer) – New transponder code (supports all modes and IDENT)
– COM Radio volume can now be changed
– Fixed bug preventing autopilot GPS NAV mode
– Improvements to engine performance realism (aircarft was overpowered) – Improvements to spoiler dynamics (effectiveness was excessive)
– Minor tweaks to drag coefficient
– Further tweaks to readability for some gauges
– Revised control surface animations
– Redone ADI animation to fix minor inaccuracies, also increased movement by 5°
– Fixed minor animation bug in canard control surfaces hinges
– Improved rendering of propeller and its animations
– Improved control surfaces animations
– Improved handling (pitch control) – NOTE it is now slightly more difficult to “stall” the canard surfaces – Minor tweaks to flight dynamics
– Slighly relaxed conditions for speedbrake blowback
– Included additional liveries courtesy of Sebastien Rocque
– Revised CoG limitations
– Fixed bug preventing autopilot to work with certain liveries
– Improved mouse drag interaction on some switches
– Added missing component behavior to COM1 SWAP button – Fixed Aircraft Description
– Fixed mistake in tooltip ID for attitude calibration knob – Fixed duplicate GUID in view system
– Note: starting from this version, version numbering is changed to comply with Microsoft three-digit method, hence 1.1.9 (equivalent to 1.19 in the previou numbering system)
– Package Recompiled for Sim Update V
– Major code reorganization and optimization
– Basic implementation of Sim Update V cockpit interaction model – Increased readability of some gauge needles
– Replaced cockpit flood light for better night visibility
– Added tire contact special effects
– Added LODs to external model for better performance
– Redone aircraft dynamics for increased stability (aircraft should now be easier to control and less prone to departures in severe weather)
– Tweaked wheels dynamics while on the ground (lateral control during takeoff run should now be easier)
– Added basic autopilot with following functionalities:
– Altitude selection and altitude hold (without baro setting) – Wing leveller
– Heading hold
– GPS Navigation
– Redone Mouse Areas assignation with “Behavior” method, restoring drag functionality for several controls – Revised Mouse Areas zones for more accurate control and fewer conflicts.
– Updated localization file for World Update IV
– Fixed Weather Occlusion in v1.15 – Fixed Minor Texture glitch in v1.15
– Added Cockpit Collision model for Virtual Reality
– Further improvements to canopy scatches
– Fixed bug preventing pilot figures to show in the green-checker livery
– Added red and silver livery courtesy of Christoph Tantow
– Added checklists courtesy courtesy of Lucas Aulen aka Laulenture
– Changed mapping of airspeed needle for better gauge readability
– Remapped fuel selector color to avoid issues with mouse drag problems introduced in MSFS
– Added sunglasses to pilot figures
– Reintroduced canopy scatches (hopefully done much better this time) – Changed model name to comply with Microsoft convention
– Increased engine volume when in virtual cockpit
– Minor tweaks to sound spatialization

The Rutan Model 61 Long-EZ is a tandem 2-seater homebuilt aircraft designed by Burt Rutan’s Rutan Aircraft Factory.

The Long-EZ has a canard layout, with a delta wing and wingtip rudders, and a pusher engine and propelleor. The tricycle landing gear has fixed main wheels with streamlined spats, and a retractable nosewheel. Its predecessor was the VariEze, plans of which were first available to homebuilders in 1976. The prototype, N79RA,of the Long-EZ first flew on June 12, 1979. The Long-EZ was a plans-only kitplane, and several variants of the basic design have surfaced over the years.


• Highly detailed internal and external visual models
• 8K high resolution textures
• 4 liveries with customizable registration markings
• Custom sound package (using legacy sound pipeline – WWise sounds not supported at launch)
• Native Microsoft Flight Simulator flight model (at the moment of the initial release, MSFS does not properly support canard planes – the plane may exhibit a behavior that may differ from the real aircraft in extereme conditions)
