Piper PA180 Update. An update for FSX of the AI Piper PA-180 to make it flyable. Flight dynamics from FS2004 were used and it was given a panel. The panel background is by Marcelo Canovas. It uses all default FSX gauges. Follow the install instructions properly and the AI aircraft will still be there as the AI aircraft. By Bob Chicilo.

I don't know if anyone else has done a similar update for the pa28-180 to make it flyable, or not.

Unzip to a folder of your choice. Copy the Piper pa28-180 folder to the FS X airplanes folder.
Copy the model and texture folders from the PA28_180 folder to the new aircraft folder.

If you have not already done so copy the .cab files from the panel folders of the default aircraft that have .cab files to the main FS gauges folder. For some of you they may be .zip files, because .cab files are a type of zip file.

The panel with this update can be used with any single engine Piper aircraft that you might have.

I re-loaded FS X near the beginning of July to see how the scenery compared to X-plane scenery. Otherwise this update would not have been done.

Tip: For those who have aircraft textures that look fuzzy and unclear, change the Global texture resolution slider to the right until you have the textures looking as you wish. This may cause a penalty in the frame rate, so you might have to make do with fuzzy textures; or find some other section of the display settings to turn down to get the frame rate back up.

Anyone: You have my permission to use any of my updates with the following conditions: One, you don't try to make money with them. Two, you don't try to hurt, or take something from anyone by using them.

I thought I was done with updating, but I guess if I find anything else that I think is worth doing, I will upload an update for it.
