TROUBLE WITH THE INSTALLER?

Here is a step by step guide:

1) Download the run the included Hype Operations Center EXE. It installs and adds a shortcut to your Start menu. The EXE can be discarded after install.

2) Remove your existing `hpg-airbus-h135` folder. We cannot detect the old version and upgrade it because it lacks an integrity manifest. This bug will be fixed, for now you need to remove the old version.

3) Open the program and click on the H135 thumbnail on the left side.

4) Check that **Community Location** is set correctly. It should say your path here, if it says "No path selected" you must click it and then pick the location from the list or select the manual path option for use with addon linker or if your sim is not detected.

5) click Manage Install

6) Now you see two versions 445 and 446 at the bottom. 446 has only one additional fix for those who demand inverted flight, both versions are compatible with SU11.

If you are unable to see any available versions, it's due to a firewall blocking the program.

Usability enhancements will be forthcoming, we thank you for your patience!

I managed to download the helicopter, but the dashboard says "loading control module" and the helicopter cannot be started. how can this be solved, what could be the problem?

Please help me.

I was able to download it successfully, but the glass cockpit says "loading control module" and I can't fly.

Other helicopters are flying fine.

Hi, I try to install three times, and again, my problem is always: Fatal Extract Error: Error Extracting hpg-airbus-h145-Build-372-Upgrade.zip Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, open 'D:\WpSystem\S-1-5-21-3218746082-1899402025-466259284-1002\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\Packages\Community\hpg-airbus-h145-ap\html_ui\HPGH145-System\GeneratedEventMap.txt'

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP

Fatal Extract Error: Error Extracting hpg-airbus-h135-Build-445.zip TypeError [ERR_INVALID_ARG_TYPE]: The "path" argument must be of type string. Received undefined

Any help appreciated

If you follow install instructions cant go wrong thanks 😊

Any chance we can have support for AirlandFS?

Why not just put the helicopter back, instead of this stupid installer.

Changed my mind, downloaded and installed it. It works perfectly! Thanks!

Hmmm, reading all these comments, I'll stick to the earlier version...

flight model is bad compared to default helicopters

Bought both pay ware versions and both unflyable saying "Low pressure in the Main Gear Box" am I missing something?

Despite being extremely annoyed by having to use YET ANOTHER installer we all could do without, i decided to use it. Deleted the old H135 from the community folder, set-up proper path in the app and used it to do something i could probably do myself faster, and it spat out this error after the verification process:

Fatal Verify Error: .\Tools\UserSetup.zip

The same goes for GTN750

Fatal Verify Error: .\waypoints\gtn750\import.csv

Why make it an installer, Could you not make it a file on flightsim.to and put an installer on your own website....?

Anyone experience a problem downloading the 750GTN from the installer. I get "Fatal Error" every time I try to install it.

Why not justg make it a file again, the installer doesnt work.

Visited every POI of Spain and Italie with the H135 and liked how it behaves. A real good helicopter! After simupdate with a engine for helicopters i waved goodbye to her. Hoped one day it no longer using the extra program for letting her fly and uses the MSFS heli engine...

Downloaded it to try out the new version

unzipped the file

realized there is an installer

deleted the file

really guys why do you ruin your product, this once was a nice mod but there is just no point at all for an installer

Download and install without issue. Controller configured as Thrustmaster airbus with throttle linked to Z axis setting as per instructions and rotor mapped to x & y axis. Views set to hat switch. Only throttle and views work, can't go forward back left or right. Any ideas?

Hello ! I have read the Airbus H135 Quick Start Guide.pdf but I can't understand what I have to do and how to assign the axes in the helicopter profile of my joystick. I can't take off! Wouldn't there be the possibility for  no purists to be able to copy the start and the flight on the native Bell 407 of MSFS 2020 ?

Regards, Marc

Well, a really beautiful modelling and texture work, but awful flight model. Your heli seems to be on hydraulic actuators, every movement is transferred linearly and without any perturbation, and the heli still stable in every case. Not realistic at all, it's an addon to make photography. Prefer the H125 project even if the work is on 25% achieve, far far better.

Last thing : why an installer ? Why this poor "manager" ? And why don't you show a log installation ? What are you installing more ?

And by the way, your uninstaller "forget" to delete the AppData folder YOU put in.

Suggestion, bugs and ideas for the future.

  • Version 1.4.6 November 16, 2022

    All HPG aircraft are now managed via our Hype Operations Center desktop application which by popular demand now includes an easy to use installer. HOC only needs to be run for your initial installation of the HPG H135 and when installing future updates - it does not need to remain open in order for the H135 to function normally.

    1.4.6 Changelog:

    - Compatible with Sim Update 11
    - Fixed shaking on the yaw axis introduced from Sim Update 10's live weather, wind and gusts updates

    In our screenshots you can see that the H135 has an EFB that is capable of displaying a web browser or a screen capture from one of your computer's displays. This feature requires advanced setup and we want to walk users through the process as well as take your feedback - the files necessary to run the EFB are exclusive to our Discord members for this reason.

FAQ - ADDITIONAL NOTES

More in depth notes are available on our Discord with images showing recommending mappings and settings.

 

With our Airbus H135 the “Throttle axis” controls the H135's collective, and the H135's FADEC system (enabled from the middle PFD panel) will automatically control the RPM and engines and must be turned on to fly.  

We have multiple flight modes to choose from on the lower GTN screen:

* Xbox: Less responsive controls optimized for xbox sticks.

* Basic: More responsive version of Xbox mode, lacking many dynamic helicopter effects

* Advanced: Introduces engine torque and more subtle dynamic effects that add up to feel like a real life helicopter.

If you encounter an issue that is not covered in the notes below and cannot be resolved by asking our testers in the #?feedback channel on our Discord, please send a message to @Support Bot describing your issue - this will create a ticket for our team to review with you.

 

KNOWN ISSUES AND TIPS

You can assume that all issues below are being worked on by the development team. We have listed the temporary fixes and ETAs whenever possible.

* Make sure the FADEC button is on before taking off for flight

* Some external tools (like Kinetic Assistant and PushbackHelper) leave a file in your Documents folder called SimConnect.cfg that prevents H135 from reading your controls. Rename SimConnect.cfg to any other name and then start the sim. H135 controls will now be functional. Don't forget to check this before each flight if you use these tools

* “Throttle Axis” must be used. The helicopter does not support split throttles such as “Throttle 1 Axis” “Throttle 2 Axis”

* First load of the H135 requires 30 to 90 seconds to initialize our flight control module before flying. The “Flight Mode” button will be red and say “DO NOT FLY” until our module is initialized and ready for flight.

* When first loading into the sim, you must move your throttle axis for our helicopter to recognize it, otherwise you may find the helicopter takes off on its own.

* Xbox controllers by default are unable to split and control the yaw axis, there are workarounds posted below for the time being.

* We allow you to crash and damage the helicopter, disable crash detection if having a tough time

* Flying under bridges will cause a collision if crash detection is enabled, and on occasion require the sim to be restarted, fly under at your own risk

* The helicopter cannot have multiple devices mapped to the same input axis at the same time. Ex: using a X56 joystick and Xbox controller at the same time will conflict if they share any bindings

 

SENSITIVITY SETTINGS 

Players should adjust sensitivity for their personal taste. Dead zone range needs to be adjusted depending on your own hardware. Other owners of your hardware in our Discord server may be able to offer assistance however.

 

XBOX CONTROLLER TIPS

It is recommended that you create a new profile in controls specifically for the H135 so that you do not impact any other aircraft you fly. Select your H135 control preset when flying the H135.

You can have full control by remapping both joysticks to function like an RC drone, at the sacrifice of moving the camera around:

* Left stick: Throttle Axis and Rudder Axis, 
* Right stick Elevator Axis and Aileron Axis
* Camera controls must be removed from Right Stick to avoid the camera moving around when trying to fly.

 

KINETIC ASSISTANT & PUSHBACK HELPER USERS

Have no ability to control the H135? Used Kinetic Assistant or Pushback Helper or other addons?

Check your Documents folder for a file named SimConnect.cfg. If you have this file, rename it to another name, then restart the sim. H135 will now work.
