Cessna 172 Skyhawk Tail dragger

A powerfull member of the short take-off and landing capable Skyhawk family built on a Lycoming 210HP STC :

This is a plane patch over Asobo's Skyhawk and adds a new plane to your hangar.

Cockpit settings : 

You will find two variants to download :

  • baglu-c172-bush-g1000.zip : to be used with any version of MSFS2020
  • baglu-c172-bush-classic.zip : only if you have the Classic 172 from premium version

Classic cockpit integration is a hack. Known issues with this variant :

  • avionics switches are ON at spawn (even with value set to OFF in the flt)
  • when you start manually, you can get the avionics to start
  • if you then press CTRL-E you have GPS, AP, ADF but not XPDR (it comes later... or not)
  • if you switch on/off BCN, it switches AP...
  • if you switch on/off NAV lights it switches XPDR...

Something is wrong there but the XML including all the logic is encrypted, I can not work it out and I can't reuse the one from the G1000 (systems are too different). I have no solution for that right now...

3D model modifications of the original Asobo Skyhawk plane included :

  • tail center wheel
  • large and stable bush wheels
  • Sportsman STOL Camber Cuffs on the wings
  • Increased flaps angle

Flight model modifications included :

  • more power from a STC 210HP 4 cylinders engine
  • 4 position flaps (0°, 10°, 20° and down to 40°)
  • enhanced brakes

Liveries included :

Several liveries are included with this plane : 
Default livery is from ANN0V
Burgondy is inspired by this plane : 172 Taildragger 
Brown is a fictional livery
Brown and beige is from ANN0V
Blue and gray is from ANN0V
Metal red is from ANN0V and is inspired from this story : Plane & Pilot Photo Of The Week: Brian Jenkins’ Bare Metal Beauty

All dirty liveries have been made by ANN0V

Notes to livery makers :

  • Registration numbers are split in two in panel.cfg : you will be able to set different colors for the wing and the side reg.
  • Common parts of the plane have the exact same name as the C172 AS1000 model
  • New parts have there textures in bush_172_* and tail_172_* files (wheels, landing gear...)
  • Stickers are baked in the model, if you want to replace with yours, edit the file : BUSH172_STICKERS_ALBD.PNG You can also remove the stickers with a transparent texture file.

EzRyder has made a very nice ALLInOne C172 Template. Don't miss that paint kit.

Flight model :
Flight model is based on reaperS73 work on the C172 STC 210HP STOL G1000 and allows to operate in a STOL mode in bush locations.

About this work : 
3D model has been made with blender from the export of Skyhawk G1000 Asobo's original model.
All the external textures and animations had to be redone and match the original definitions.
Bush wheels and legs come from the Asobo c152 and savage cub model.
A huge thanks to Newktv's developpement series that helped a LOT.
Huge thanks to beta testers : ANNOV, smvrf, Pops738
Many thanks to EzRyder who figured it out how to use the classic cockpit.

    Thanks for the update and the new liveries!

    The prop now has a strong strobe effect which leads to a disturbing flickering on my system. There is a prop mod that significantly reduces the strobe effect:

    Maybe you can include something like that in your mod.
    For now I have copied the texture files from the prop mod into your mod's texture folder and that seems to work fine.

      Prop fixed !
      (turning the right way, and blurred one fixed too)

      Thanks for the update! The fixed prop has mode a huge improvement! Made a fantastic plane even better! Full 5 stars now! But one thing.. why did you change the wheel & tyre design!?!? I much preferred the original design! Would it be possible to reintroduce them even as an option somehow?

      The initial choice was an upgrade kit of the stock 172 to become a STOL airplane (engine, camber cuffs, wheels)
      I have other projects right now, but I may come back to it with traditional setup 😉

      Please don't abandon this fantastic aircraft though! Also, can you fix or make the prop spinner better as it looks quite terrible and spoils the look of the whole plane. Definitely needs a much higher poly model with a much less pointy tip. In fact if you can fix this plane for me including the original wheels and better prop spinner I will send you a really good donation!

    Great effort, thanks for sharing with us. Unfortunate that the encrypted files prevent a proper avionics on/off/manual start but perhaps you will one day tackle this successfully.
    • bagolu

      Yeah, I hope so !
  • popele3

    Great job! ! In the TOP 5 planes !
    Should I tell you my wishes ?
    - the same metal livery but with French blue instead of red and a black anti-reflective paint on the hood.
    - with rusty metal look (it's a bushplane 😉 )
    - a panel with no Garmin devices (some FPS gain and more "agricultural look"😉.
    - interior and panel not looking brand new, according with the rusty exterior.
    Hope you'll consider these suggests, and congratulations again for the job.
    (Merci également pour les altiports)

      More liveries are in progress. But Bush plane does not mean fucked up😉 The bush pilots i know of take very well care for their plane and keep it nice and shiny. But I'll see what i can do. I don't disagree with you and I hear you😉
      btw a little spoiler is to be found in the user gallery 😉
