FR172 REIMS ROCKET / CESSNA R172 HAWK XP II
    by bagolu & MBX Aviation

We are  happy to present you this free mod bringing an iconic member of the Cessna 172 family having a interesting power gain.

Nb. even though this is not realistic, it is currently based on the AS1000 mod patch.
A gauges version is planed for the future.

How to install it ?

Like all other mods :

  • Remove previous version if there is one (in case some mod files are removed).
  • Drop it in your community folder.
  • Have a carefull look at the compatibility list
What are Reims Rocket and Hawk XPII ?

The FR172 Reims Rocket was produced by Reims Aviation in France from the late 1960s to the mid-1970s. It was powered by a Rolls-Royce built, fuel-injected, Continental IO-360-H(B) 210 hp (160 kW) engine with a constant-speed propeller.
The Reims Rocket led to Cessna producing the R172K Hawk XP, a model available from 1977 to 1981 from both Wichita and Reims. This configuration featured a fuel-injected, Continental IO-360K derated to 195 hp (145 kW) with a two-bladed, constant-speed propeller. The Hawk XP was capable of a 131-knot (243 km/h) cruise speed. (wikipedia)

What's in this mod ?

This mod is based on the C172SP from asobo, thanks to the to Games content usage rules.

All options available in this mod can be set in the book on pilot's left compartment storage.

Flight model

The flight model has been modified to match the Reims Rocket aptitudes : 

  • Engine udgrade : 210HP, up to 2800RPM
  • Prop change : constant speed

Visual details
The external and internal 3D model have been modified

  • A new fuselage nose design matching olders C172 from that era
  • 3 blade prop and approriate nose cone
  • New exhaust pipe
  • Prop lever
  • WT1000 modifications to display manifold pressure and RPMs
  • All the features from 172SP Skyhawk AS1000 improvement
    • Moving sun visors
    • Opening doors & windows
    • Removable wheels fairings
    • Wheels chocks, tie downs, covers,
    • Custom seat configuration
    • checklists cards and flip box
    • etc.
  • Sky diving setup
    • top opening door
    • a large foot step
    • empty interior

Liveries
The mod includes **liveries** from real Reims Rocket or Hawk XP II airplanes.

Most of the liveries for Asobo C172SP should be easy to convert to this plane. You may expect modifications on the nose plane.

A specific paint kit will be available.

What's planned for the future ?
  • 2 blade variant
    • most of the XP Hawk have a 2 blade prop, some of the Reims Rocket too
    • 195HP derated engine
  • Cowl flaps (outside model, and control in cockpit)
  • Rudder trim wheel
  • Gauges cockpit (this will be a lot of work, don't be too impatient)
  • Sound tweaking
  • Synchronisation with 172SP Skyhawk AS1000 improvement
    • state saving, aging, cargo options, maps, external apps...
Compatibility
  • WT G1000NXI mod is selected by default.
  • WBSims classic mod is not related to this plane (it's for classic variant) : no incompatibility

You may find incompatibility with mods that update default html library in MSFS. Please report them if it's the case.

  • Existing Cessna Skyhawk AS1000 LIVERIES are compatible but need to be converted for this mod
  • B78XH mod is reported to be cause side effects (it's true with other planes too)

Absolutely love it. Only wish I found it sooner. Its awesome to fly in VR. My only gripe is that the engine sounds are a bit lacking. Maybe I'm too used to paywares. With a full sound overhaul I would have no problem paying for something like this. Look forward to your planned sound tweaking.

Great Job, es macht wirklich Spaß mit so einer detailgetreuen Maschine zu fliegen. Sieht auch aus der Nähe von außen toll aus.

Thanks and hope to see soon more from you!! ....that diserves 5 stars!!!!

This is great. I have had it since release in mid-October, but nobody seemed to notice it then. It seems to be making a splash now. A superb piece of work!

Just tried out this aircraft on a flight from inverness to Sumburgh. Brilliant! One question, is there a de-icer for the windscreen? Tried cabin hot air but not sure that worked.

Firstly @bagolu & MBX Aviation

What an amazingly epic mod! Its a dream to fly. I was however wondering if there could be backcountry edition with STOL flaps and increased brakes and maybe even some slightly (very slightly) bigger tires at some point to make this probably the best back country craft on the sim.

As always. Love the work you put out!

Love it very much! A joy to fly! Except the brakes on the ground... If someone can help me out with a config value for better braking i'd be very happy 😊

Nice addition, would be cool to add the sound of the Extra 300 or Bonanza's 3 blade prop.

Great addition! Waiting patiently for the paint kit and looking at liveries I notice there are quite a few converted to float planes. Any plans to release such a model in the future?

Enjoying flying this over the normal 172... however unless I am dreaming, I am not seeing the fuel gauges going down over time....

The best 172 experience in MSFS, with the STOL variants 😉 Thanks for this gem!

This is by far my favorite mod on this website now. Outstanding job, really well done. It handles amazingly, I love the exhaust and other model modifications. If anything, a version with a little bigger wheels and more squatted rear mains would be amazing for flying out in the bush. Love it!

The climb out on upwind is intoxicating! Looking forward to future updates on this awesome addition.... any chance of a Hawk Xp II without the exhaust apparatus like the later models?
