FSXPilot


FSXPilot is the world's leading universal autopilot for fixed wing aircraft and helicopters in flight simulation.

FSXPilot for android is for your phone / tablet, FSXPilot for PC (freeware, visit www.fsxpilot.com) must be installed on your flightsim computer. Both connected to your local WLAN. After that, many goodies !

Monitor aircraft parameters and the exact position of your aircraft on a versatile GoogleMap while running Microsoft Flight Simulator X or Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D.

Plan your local or intercontinental flights 'on the fly' by simply tapping on your phone or tablet screen. This app will send the latitude and longitude of your waypoints directly to FSXPilot server which will precisely turn your aircraft into the new headings. During your flight, observe basic flight parameters and send commands for changing indicated airspeed, taxi speeds, flight level (altitude), aircraft heading or target selection from thousands of FSXPilot's (PC) AIRAC targets. Initiate automated takeoffs and ILS landings from your phone. Holdings, GPS autolandings and touch and go procedures can be performed on almost any airfield worldwide.

Ground taxi of planes can be difficult. With FSXPilot for Android it's - easy. Zoom down to runway level and create taxiplans by simply fingertapping on the taxiways you want to use. Your plane will follow the taxi directions immediately and even stop at your last taxiwaypoint (usually at gate or at a runway holding point). With Lockheed Martin's awesome Prepar3D you will experience the highest level of precision during ground taxi - runways and taxiways in real (as shown on the GoogleMap) and on P3D are almost identical. The ground model of FSX is less precise. Stop engine, restart engine and initiate a pushback via your phone / tablet.

Switch to helicopter mode on PC and enjoy controlling the heli via your phone. Navigate. Hover or land at a certain position.

We even implemented an experimental yoke so that you can fly the fixedwings by hand (better said: by phone :-) and operate flaps, gear and wheelbrakes - live.

As another little extra, the app will automatically pause (enable this under 'Options') FSX or P3D on an incoming phonecall ;-)

So step back from your computer - sit down for a talk with your friend / husband / wife - and use your phone or tablet as your new clever flightsim control device !

Good app but crashes when I send commands This a good app, could be better that when I send commands to the PC to change the planes altitude, it crashes the program.

Excellent App for FSX Anthus!!! Excellent app. Works so smoothly. For those facing crashes - open FSX then FSX Pilot PC then FSX Pilot app and connect app to PC only after your plane is loaded i.e. plane is in the air or at the airport (crashes because of missing LAT LON ALT values on non SIM screens. Suggestion for the developer, please add a button for cancelling flight plan/tracking (I did "Fly Right Holding" and the plane kept doing circles :), no button to do ILS or other patterns, panel doesn;t open, so will be good to put a button for cancelling patterns/flight plans/tracking. -- Otherwise Awesome!!
