VERTIGO - TURBO PROP RACER

Vertigo likes to go fast, low and kick some dust. Inspired by Mike Patey's "Turbulence", she has the same blood running through her veins: the legendary PT6A 850HP turbine engine. Add to that a 6 bladed constant speed prop plus a composite airframe and you've got a competitive racer.

Note: disable Auto Rudder (Assistance menu) as it causes tail-wagging in-flight and odd steering behavior on the ground.

Vertigo runs on jet fuel, holds a world record-breaking 380kts top speed (single engine turbo prop), can climb at 8000fpm and rolls at 150 degrees per second.
She can go vertical right after take-off and still accelerate. Or cruise great distances in comfort and style. 

At her core you'll find a heavily retrofitted JMB VL-3, an ultralight and fully composite experimental aircraft able to withstand g-forces of +15/-8. 

Pilot, fasten your harness. And welcome to the world of Vertigo!

  • Pratt & Whitney 850HP PT6A-42a turbine
  • 6-bladed 6-foot constant speed composite MT propeller
  • 16 professionally designed sporty liveries and interiors
  • 31,000ft service ceiling
  • 1200nm range at 320kts
  • Upgraded tanks (2 x 50 gallons)
  • Upgraded VL-3 fuel selector: now also has "Both" besides Left, Right and Off
  • Pressurized cabin
  • Upgraded suspension and brakes 
  • Powerful flaps able to serve as speed brakes too
  • Fantastic ground handling
  • Execute the Knife-Edge move!
  • Windshield de-icing
  • Fully simulated electrical system

If you have the WT G3X mod you will also get:

  • Automatic Flight Control System (Autopilot)
  • Automated Pitot Heat


Vertigo comes with 100% carefully crafted custom lights: a powerful volumetric main landing light, 6 cool landing spots on the wings, 3 double strobe lights, navigation lights and stylish NVFR cockpit lighting. All her cameras have been redone as well be it Quickviews, Instrument views or External views. The VR camera too has been optimized for the most immersive experience possible.

In addition, several hundred hours have gone into developing and testing her flight model, which has been created from scratch. JMB factory data has been used to create the most accurate geometric model possible, verified and complemented by virtual wind tunnel results.

RENO AIR RACES

Vertigo is the airplane we use for our frequently hosted air races at Reno Stead. The entire event is organized from the Got Gravel Discord Server (link above). Head over to the reno-air-race channel in the Events & Plans category for the latest scheduled event and other useful information.
See you on the racing track!

 

WEATHER PRESETS

Vertigo comes with 3 beautiful weather presets:

  • Vertigo Racing
  • Vertigo Windy
  • Vertigo Rainy

 

INSTALLATION

  • Delete older versions of the Vertigo mod, if any.
  • Extract the ZIP file.
  • Drag the folder named gotgravel-vertigo directly into the Community folder.
  • Restart the sim.

You'll find Vertigo in your hangar next to the default VL-3.

If done correctly, your folder structure should look like this:

/Community
   /gotgravel-vertigo
      /Effects
      /RTC
      /SimObjects
      /WeatherPresets
/Official

How to find the Community folder?

If you changed the default location of packages, it’s the simplest because you should find a Community sub folder in it.

For Steam, it should be located in C:\Users\ [Computer Name]\ AppData\ Local\ Packages\  Microsoft.FlightDashboard_8wekyb3d8bbwe\ LocalCache\ Packages\ Community

For Windows Store C:\Users\ [Computer Name]\ AppData\ Local\ Packages\ Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\ LocalCache\ Packages\ Community

SUPPORT

I have multiple threads on various flight sim forums and websites (including this one) and it is not possible for me to respond to queries on all of them.

Support is therefor exclusively provided from the Got Gravel Discord Server (https://discord.gg/4f3j4YgNm4) through the "FAQ" and "Support" channels inside the "Information" category.

The FAQ especially is a treasure cove of information covering about 95% of all questions I have seen to date. There is also a button "Frequently Asked" near the top of this page which contains the same useful FAQ.

 

KNOWN ISSUES

  • Synthetic Vision is not working with the Working Title G3X mod. Working Title is hoping to fix this. Not a Vertigo bug and out of my control.
  • On rare occasions one or both Garmins do not power on. A known MSFS bug. Need to restart the flight. Not a Vertigo bug and out of my control.
  • Master Switch does not affect some basic cockpit systems. Same thing happens in the default VL3. To be resolved.

 

CREDITS

A very special thanks to the countless test-pilots who have been involved with the Vertigo closed and open beta programme. She would not have been the same without you!

Často kladené otázky
Does Vertigo exist in real life?

Yes and no. But mostly yes. It's a heavily modded JMB VL-3 with a retrofitted 850HP turbine. A six-bladed constant speed prop has been installed. That has not been done in real life yet with the VL-3. However it has been done in the Lancair (a very similar aircraft) by Mike Patey. He created "Turbulence" - the fastest single-engine turbo prop in the world - after which Vertigo is modelled. Vertigo has been given the same engine, top speed and climb rate.

I want to know my v-speeds.

Check out the performance placard on the dashboard (above the MFD).

What's Vertigo's range?

She easily does 1200nm at 320kts cruise at FL100 or so.

How do I start the engine?

Use the build-in checklist in MSFS, it will guide you through all steps. You can of course also do an autostart (CTRL-E by default) or start hot on the runway.

Take-off is so powerful!

Vertigo is ridiculously overpowered. You only need 25 to 30% for her take-off roll. Also remember to set elevator trim to neutral.

Wagging tail or strange rudder behaviour?

Disable Auto Rudder, does more harm than good in the air and on the ground.

Weird flight model behaviour?

Make sure your flight model is set to "Modern" and not "Legacy".

I can't find the Community Folder.

Carefully read the Installation Instructions.

I have an issue with my Garmin.

The G3X Garmin comes with Vertigo as-is. Kindly contact the owner of the Garmin you have (the default MSFS or Working Title version most likely) for any support issues or feature requests.

Synthetic Vision on my G3X Garmin is not working.

A known issue with the Working Title G3X Garmin (works with some planes but not others...still a WT problem).

Is there an autopilot?

Yes, if you have the WT G3X mod installed you can operate it. Check with the Working Title team for support.

Download the latest Working Title G3X mod from their GitHub repository:
https://www.workingtitle.aero/packages/g3x/

Is there windshield deicing?

Yes, pull the lever above the fuel selector.

Why is the propeller controller disabled?

The propeller controller has been disconnected because it is not needed Vertigo's turbo prop operations.

On rare occasions one or both Garmins do not power on

A known MSFS bug. Need to restart the flight. Not a Vertigo bug and out of my control.

Master Switch does not affect some basic cockpit systems

Same thing happens in the default VL3. To be resolved.

Synthetic Vision is not working with the Working Title G3X mod

Working Title is hoping to fix this. Not a Vertigo bug and out of my control.

Is there Pitot Heat?

Je tu docela prázdno.

  • Version 1.0.4 June 07, 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!

    - Super stable ground handling, take-off roll easy as pie (30% throttle is enough, trim well before starting your roll)
    - Execute the famous Knife Edge aerobatic move, and hold it for the entire runway length!
    - Most accurate flight model yet for Vertigo
    - Fixed trim balance issue
    - Slightly reduced flap drag
    - Excellent balance of aerodynamic forces

  • Version 1.0.3 May 11, 2021

    - "Generation 2" Flight Model (smooth ground control, zero tail-wagging, epic roll-rates and more)
    - Fixed the US Coast Guard (USCG) livery conflict with Grravel
    - Fixed "Level of Detail" drawing distances for the external model
    - Improved throttle lever usability range giving you finer throttle control

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

  • Version 1.0.2 May 05, 2021

    - 2 New liveries: 54 Cyclone and US Coast Guard!
    - Tweaked steering wheel sensitivity a bit
    - Adjusted rudder sensitivity at taxi speeds by a fair bit, less twitchy
    - Less sensitive elevator at all speeds
    - Slightly increased roll rate at top speeds
    - Removed external 3D model LOD 5 as it missed wings
    - Other "tiny" flight model refinements

    Enjoy guys, overall easier to control on the ground, however, you would still need to respect the huge amount of power. No matter what, prop wash coming from 850HP spinning 6 blades will make the rudder highly responsive, as it should. Take-off with 25 to 30% torque and it's super smooth.

    Retract gear before 140kts or you may damage it.

  • Version 1.0.1 April 28, 2021

    - GForce gauge added to the Garmin's systems panel
    - Oil temperature and pressure gauges added
    - Travel in style with the first 3 "touring" liveries: Luxor, Dorado and Matador
    - 1 New totally awesome racing livery: 53 Blade
    - Landing light beam tweaked to be even more authentic (brightness, beam, volumetric intensity, color)
    - Taxi lights added (left + right throw), gated to Landing Light switch
    - All external white lights changed to Aviation-White.
    - Low fuel light (left / right) warning changed from 2 gal to 10 gal
    - Flap 2 changed from 37 to 38 degrees (matches tooltip)
    - More Yaw momentum to counter weathervaning, crosswind and tail wagging
    - Updated seats for all liveries

I'm not sure how man and machine can withstand these forces, but this is clearly a lot of fun to fly this airplane, especially if you already like the VL-3 on its own.

How about a new project.....I give you an idea....TURBINE LEGEND!!!!

could you please include smoke trails for airshows

https://github.com/thealx-eech/msfs-effects-lib

I love this mod. And it won't let me rate it so I must have already done so. When you say to trim well before starting your TO roll, can you explain exactly what "trim well" means? Thank you and a job well done. I have this airplane in my aircraft database on my discord server, if you would like me to post an invite please let me know. I also brag about it every chance I get!

Thanks a lot for polishing this nice plane further!

Could you stretch the cowling, bigger intake scoop and add gas exhaust stubs ? That would be awesome ! Then all would be perfect.

After today's SU4 update you will need to upgrade your WT G3X mod if you have it. Get the latest version here:

https://www.workingtitle.aero/packages/g3x/

build one with the performance of a normal Lancair legacy. this one is a bit over powered and feels a bit unrealistic but good one

Another amazing bird from you, besides Grravel and co. Your planes are such a joy to fly, and they are not too far away from study level IMO.

Just have one problem with the Vertigo only, related to the turning circle (when moving on the ground): it seems to need a lot of space and sometimes barely reacts, unlike e.g. the Gravvel (which is a monster in flexibility). So I have to use Push-back pretty frequently. Am I being the only one with this? Fyi I am using Logitech's Extreme 3D Pro.

Hey, and I would really love to "donate" an appropriate sum to you for your continuous efforts, but don't have and don't want to use paypal. Is there any other possible way to do this? (this is a serious question)

Cheers from "Margaux" (when I am in MSFS Bush Pilots' Discord)

In Germany we would say: HAMMER!!!

I do not manage to extend or retract the landing gear - neither with the switch on the dashboard nor with an assigned button on my joystick. The gear won't move. What am I doing wrong?

Really pleasantly surprised by a

Really am enjoying this beast! Seems that all of the Instrument control labels are all white. No readable labels. IE the fuel selector and others look like white DYMO lablels. Fantastic plane otherwise. I'm familiar enough with the other versions, and fly outside a lot, so not a deal breaker. Did I break something? 😀

Thank you so much making this available for everyone. This plane has been my favorite for almost every thing.

I have just a question. I did not like loosing the synthetic vision so I uninstalled the G3X mod but is there anywhere I can turn on pitot heater manually?

Thanks again for providing us with this high quality beast of a plane.
Is there a way to do ILS auto landings with this plane? I can do autopilot, but can't seem to change nav to do ILS landings
Reno Air Races

And the one and only Reno Air Races are starting in earnest! The trial period is over and we're going LIVE this week 😱

This event is organized from the Got Gravel Discord Server:
https://discord.gg/4f3j4YgNm4

Head over to the reno-air-race channel in the Events & Plans category for the latest scheduled event and other useful information.

The coming one is in 2 days time. But don't wait, head over now and practice...slash your lap times!
Not thinking properly, I have this setup as a "Complex Single" for by Honeycomb Bravo TQS buttons and axes. I noticed with that config that if I pull the mixture lever back, the engine stops, but does this even need a mixture or prop axis to be mapped in the first place?

It would be easier to just remove them, which would eliminate the chance of accidentally killing my engine if I grab the wrong lever! Assuming of course that they are not needed and can be removed in the first place.

This bad boy is AWESOME, but it will get away from you FAST if you're not paying attention!
