There are no special requirements for X-Plane to run SmartCopilot. The one thing to care about is a stable internet connection. Not only the download speed but also connection reliability is an important factor to get maximum from SmartCopilot. For example, 4G Mobile modems usually have a poor connection quality, causing connection and synchronization issues.

Windows firewall

When X-Plane starts for the first time on Windows, it asks the user to add a firewall rule. It is important to allow access! Otherwise, X-Plane and all its plugins cannot use the network connection.
