Download Edition

Note: On Windows, the plugin depends on the Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013 (vcredist_x64.exe) which can be downloaded from Microsoft should you need it, https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40784. If you see "X-Plane 11/Resources/plugins/ExtPlane/64/win.xpl : Error Code = 126 : The specified module could not be found." in X-Plane's Log.txt output, then you will need to install it.

The IP address of the X-Plane host computer can be found from the 'Settings -> Network' menu. In the example shown below, the IP address is "". Otherwise, NETGEAR have an excellent knowledgebase article on how to find your IP address here, https://kb.netgear.com/20878/Finding-your-IP-address-without-using-the-command-prompt.

Once installed, you can assign a joystick button or keyboard shortcut to the "ExtPlane custom command" to control the Push-to-Talk function in XP Remote (Pro version only).
