  • Version 1.0.4 June 07, 2021

    The recent Software Update 4 (SU4) brought with it a vastly improved flight model. Stuff that was missing has been added, and things that were not balanced well now seem to be pretty accurate.

    This update takes full advantage of all this goodness!

    - Super stable ground handling, take-off roll easy as pie (30% throttle is enough, trim well before starting your roll)
    - Execute the famous Knife Edge aerobatic move, and hold it for the entire runway length!
    - Most accurate flight model yet for Vertigo
    - Fixed trim balance issue
    - Slightly reduced flap drag
    - Excellent balance of aerodynamic forces

  • Version 1.0.3 May 11, 2021

    - "Generation 2" Flight Model (smooth ground control, zero tail-wagging, epic roll-rates and more)
    - Fixed the US Coast Guard (USCG) livery conflict with Grravel
    - Fixed "Level of Detail" drawing distances for the external model
    - Improved throttle lever usability range giving you finer throttle control

    Note on the "Generation 2" Flight Model. I have been working hard on another aircraft, the aerobatic Gee Bee R3. Developing this has certainly pushed the limits of what the MSFS Flight Model can do and has taught me more than Carbon, Grravel and Vertigo combined. Hence I have redeveloped Vertigo's Flight Model entirely from scratch putting in all the lessons learned so far. Enjoy the new flight experience!

  • Version 1.0.2 May 05, 2021

    - 2 New liveries: 54 Cyclone and US Coast Guard!
    - Tweaked steering wheel sensitivity a bit
    - Adjusted rudder sensitivity at taxi speeds by a fair bit, less twitchy
    - Less sensitive elevator at all speeds
    - Slightly increased roll rate at top speeds
    - Removed external 3D model LOD 5 as it missed wings
    - Other "tiny" flight model refinements

    Enjoy guys, overall easier to control on the ground, however, you would still need to respect the huge amount of power. No matter what, prop wash coming from 850HP spinning 6 blades will make the rudder highly responsive, as it should. Take-off with 25 to 30% torque and it's super smooth.

    Retract gear before 140kts or you may damage it.

  • Version 1.0.1 April 28, 2021

    - GForce gauge added to the Garmin's systems panel
    - Oil temperature and pressure gauges added
    - Travel in style with the first 3 "touring" liveries: Luxor, Dorado and Matador
    - 1 New totally awesome racing livery: 53 Blade
    - Landing light beam tweaked to be even more authentic (brightness, beam, volumetric intensity, color)
    - Taxi lights added (left + right throw), gated to Landing Light switch
    - All external white lights changed to Aviation-White.
    - Low fuel light (left / right) warning changed from 2 gal to 10 gal
    - Flap 2 changed from 37 to 38 degrees (matches tooltip)
    - More Yaw momentum to counter weathervaning, crosswind and tail wagging
    - Updated seats for all liveries

Frequently Asked

Questions? Find your solution here.

Does Vertigo exist in real life?

Yes and no. But mostly yes. It's a heavily modded JMB VL-3 with a retrofitted 850HP turbine. A six-bladed constant speed prop has been installed. That has not been done in real life yet with the VL-3. However it has been done in the Lancair (a very similar aircraft) by Mike Patey. He created "Turbulence" - the fastest single-engine turbo prop in the world - after which Vertigo is modelled. Vertigo has been given the same engine, top speed and climb rate.

I want to know my v-speeds.

Check out the performance placard on the dashboard (above the MFD).

What's Vertigo's range?

She easily does 1200nm at 320kts cruise at FL100 or so.

How do I start the engine?

Use the build-in checklist in MSFS, it will guide you through all steps. You can of course also do an autostart (CTRL-E by default) or start hot on the runway.

Take-off is so powerful!

Vertigo is ridiculously overpowered. You only need 25 to 30% for her take-off roll. Also remember to set elevator trim to neutral.

Wagging tail or strange rudder behaviour?

Disable Auto Rudder, does more harm than good in the air and on the ground.

Weird flight model behaviour?

Make sure your flight model is set to "Modern" and not "Legacy".

I can't find the Community Folder.

Carefully read the Installation Instructions.

I have an issue with my Garmin.

The G3X Garmin comes with Vertigo as-is. Kindly contact the owner of the Garmin you have (the default MSFS or Working Title version most likely) for any support issues or feature requests.

Synthetic Vision on my G3X Garmin is not working.

A known issue with the Working Title G3X Garmin (works with some planes but not others...still a WT problem).

Is there an autopilot?

Yes, if you have the WT G3X mod installed you can operate it. Check with the Working Title team for support.

Download the latest Working Title G3X mod from their GitHub repository:
https://www.workingtitle.aero/packages/g3x/

Is there windshield deicing?

Yes, pull the lever above the fuel selector.

Why is the propeller controller disabled?

The propeller controller has been disconnected because it is not needed Vertigo's turbo prop operations.

On rare occasions one or both Garmins do not power on

A known MSFS bug. Need to restart the flight. Not a Vertigo bug and out of my control.

Master Switch does not affect some basic cockpit systems

Same thing happens in the default VL3. To be resolved.

Synthetic Vision is not working with the Working Title G3X mod

Working Title is hoping to fix this. Not a Vertigo bug and out of my control.

Is there Pitot Heat?

This is the hayabusa of airplanes. If you are looking for a joyride, look no further.

Thanks guys 😊

Absolutely fantastic airplane. I'm a big fan of Mike Patey and always wondered what that fast looking sleek plane was in his hangar in the background. Now I know. You are very skilled at making MSFS planes, this one is a beast and looks amazing!! Thanks for sharing your work with us. Here is the real thing in case someone's interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2emGc7t4e4Y

Thanks guys, great to read all your comments!

Amazing Work! Thank You

Hello! How do I delete the weather presets?

Totally love it! For me it's the funnest sightseeing plane ot there! Gets you from A to B rather quick, super nice panoramic cockpit....and if you're done with the autopilot (WT Garmin mod works a treat!), just go nuts with it. Thank you for making this available to the community for free! Nice change from all the (slow) rest.

Lots of fun. Thank you Mr Gravel

Fantastic mod so much fun to fly this speed monster thank you so much this game has become so much fun now for me .but again thank you and keep it up

SIN DUDAS MI AVIÓN PREFERIDO EN FS2020, ¡INCREÍBLE TRABAJO! /// NO DOUBT, MY PREFFERED PLANE IN FS2020, ¡AMAZING WORK!

I'm not sure how man and machine can withstand these forces, but this is clearly a lot of fun to fly this airplane, especially if you already like the VL-3 on its own.

How about a new project.....I give you an idea....TURBINE LEGEND!!!!

could you please include smoke trails for airshows

I love this mod. And it won't let me rate it so I must have already done so. When you say to trim well before starting your TO roll, can you explain exactly what "trim well" means? Thank you and a job well done. I have this airplane in my aircraft database on my discord server, if you would like me to post an invite please let me know. I also brag about it every chance I get!

Thanks a lot for polishing this nice plane further!

Voici un très bon site en français sur msfs2020

Could you stretch the cowling, bigger intake scoop and add gas exhaust stubs ? That would be awesome ! Then all would be perfect.

After today's SU4 update you will need to upgrade your WT G3X mod if you have it. Get the latest version here:

https://www.workingtitle.aero/packages/g3x/

build one with the performance of a normal Lancair legacy. this one is a bit over powered and feels a bit unrealistic but good one
