  • Version 1.6.0 October 28, 2021

    - Takes full advantage of new SU6 flight model capabilities
    - New SU6 propeller physics for a much more realistic performance profile
    - Overhauled and re-tuned flight model for the highest level of realism so far
    - Accurate representation of the bush plane experience.
    - Natural and instinctive control on the ground and in the air
    - Added aileron and rudder trim ability (use keybinds)
    - Added flap drag sound

  • Version 1.4.0 August 03, 2021

    Superior flight model compared to any previous Savage Grravel version. A big thanks goes out to cavaricooper for lending his expertise as a professional test pilot for the ongoing Grravel project. Get ready an authentic bush plane experience!

    - Execute STOL landings with pinpoint accuracy
    - Wheel dust and water effects added (try water skiing!)
    - Further improved shock absorbers ... you'll love the driving!
    - Further improved ground handling ... and I mean improved
    - Updated default livery with solar panels (hey, Scrappy has it, Grravel gets it)
    - Accurately calculated drag for the 35" AB's
    - Accurate flap behavior
    - Revised moments of inertia
    - New livery "Bash" ... a yellow "Dash"
    - Fixed magnetos (broken by SU5)

  • Version 1.3.2 July 18, 2021

    - 50% increase in shock absorber travel for all 3 wheels. Rough terrain? No problem.
    - Incorporated accurate Savage Cub factory data in the new flight model realism update.
    - Flaperons move exactly 25% with the flaps for an optimum combination of control and lift.
    - Finely tuned STOL wing properties based on the NACA 4412 airfoil.
    - Adverse yaw. Just like the real thing. Work those pedals!
    - Various other improvements across the board

  • Version 1.3.1 June 06, 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!

    - Execute the famous Knife Edge aerobatic move, and hold it for the entire runway length!
    - Most accurate flight model yet for Grravel
    - Fixed trim balance issue
    - Aileron authority is back at lower speeds
    - Slightly reduced flap drag
    - Excellent balance of aerodynamic forces

  • Version 1.3.0 May 17, 2021

    - "Generation 2" Flight Model (Super realistic bush flight! Includes Adverse Yaw)
    - Electrical system upgraded from 12v to 24v
    - Improved NVFR dashboard lights: added a center spot covering ASI, Compass and Turn Coordinator
    - Reprogrammed flaps...no more ballooning but correct dipping
    - All external white lights (landing, strobe, nav) changed to Aviation White
    - Improved default pilot camera for better visibility of dashboard as well as landscape

    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 Grravel’s Flight Model entirely from scratch putting in all the lessons learned so far. Enjoy the new flight experience!

  • Version 1.2.5 March 22, 2021

    - Improved flight model including further realism refinements as well as adjustments to compensate for recent changes in the overall MSFS flight model interpretation.
    - Easier to fly during take off and less affected by MSFS's insanely amplified weathervaning effect (automatically turning into a crosswind).
    - Slightly less dim radio and transponder.

I love this plane, but can't switch on instrument lights. Anybody a hint for me to fly by night and see my instruments illuminated?

As always superb work GotGravel, this and Vertigo are my main aircraft.

I know it's a big request, but have you ever thought about making a payware bush plane with the g1000? You make the best bush planes, but for long trips I end up using others just for the NXi features.

The new version has no cockpit textures (all pink checkerboard), but when I reinstall the previous version (1.4), everything looks fine. I purged all the liveries that weren't verified U5 compatible, then I tried just the plane's default liveries, still pink. I downloaded the file a second time and had the same results. Note that I always delete the old folders before installing the newly downloaded ones.

I don't think I'm doing anything wrong, but always open hints and corrections.

I second the wish for an AP, just a basic hold altitude and direction would be great (a G1000 would be icing on the cake). I love the Vertigo, truly love it, but it just doesn't feel right landing it on some crude Alaskan "undefined surface".

Best Plane in MSFS2020. My payware planes just sit and I use this.

But I beg of you to create a version with G1000 and Auto Pilot.

Sell it to me, give it to me, show me how to make it myself...... I am begging you....

Thank again for doing that impressive job !! Btw, did the pilot forget to jump into the plane (external view) or it's me ?

Whooops ... Sorry, he is back .

Many thanks again.

How do you install this Super Cub. It's for FS11 right?

This is a great addon.... and the flight model is very good. There are some weaknesses, but these can be easily ignored.

WICKED looking aircraft!!! If you're a fan of Mike Patey then I pressume you're already working on the DRACO addon?.....hehehe

whats the stall speed of the plane

I am having a problem. Whenever I download this plane it works fine the first time I use it but when I shut flight sim down and reopen it the simulator freezes. I've had to reinstall flight sim twice now. Please help me I love this plane.

I have a question: Is it possible to land it without getting Whiplash? I love the plane but no matter what i try Volanta gives me a Landing G-Force of over 5G. I fly other STOL Planes and there i get constant sub 1G Landings.

Great work!

Would it be possible to add glass cocpit in the future? <3

Thank you for creating this fun and beautiful aircraft!

There is a small problem, maybe related to SU5 I am not sure, the displayed altitude is off by a couple of hundred feet...
