VTOL/Hover For Hadi Tahir's Yak-141 (FSYAK141.ZIP). This gauge adds new VTOL and hover features to Hadi Tahir's Yakovlev Yak-141. Besides true vertical takeoff and landing, it allows you to fly forward, backward, sideways and turn, while in a hover. This solution is based on overriding the normal FS flight dynamics while in a hover; in short, it's a VTOL and hover FDE coded in a gauge. Requires FSUIPC4 (registered or unregistered, not included). The readme includes extensive installation and flying instructions. By Rob Barendregt.

What the VTOL gauge essentially does: when VTOL-control is activated, it overrides the normal FS aircraft flight dynamic calculations, so complete control of the aircraft is done by intelligent gauge code (with input from the pilot using the normal flight controls like rudder, ailerons, throttle and elevator axis). The effects control gauge adds a lot of controlled, visible effects to the aircraft.


  • Smooth and stable VTOL/Hover capabilities, with pilot-controlled ascent/descent rate, longitudinal and lateral speed, heading, pitch and bank.
  • Works under ALL wind conditions, even with a tailwind, it can fly backwards!
  • Does NOT influence the aircraft's normal flight characteristics: the gauge is only active when the nozzle is rotated at 90 degrees.
