*NEW* PBR Enabled Exterior
Accurate Flight Characteristics
- Created from over 60 hours of flight tests with information from real world data and backed by actual Q400 pilots.
Detailed Exterior Model
- Created from extensive research of hundreds of images and references. Everything from the airfoils used on the wings to actual tire sizes modeled with detail in mind. Includes a full set of high resolution textures including normal maps, specular maps, and night lighting.
- Highly Accurate 3D Cockpit
Fly happy knowing what you are looking at really is to scale. 3D cockpit modeled from detailed Q400 data. Textures created from thousands of images taken of the interior.
- Detailed Interior & Exterior Night Light
Be able to see the plane at night along with strobe and beacon lights that light up the fuselage. Cockpit lighting as well allows you to still see everything and enjoy flying in the dark.
Hear what the real Q400 sounds like. We have recorded real world Q400 sounds, including cockpit call-outs. The sounds alone add so much to the experience.
We use plugins to add more systems and features that would otherwise be impossible to be implemented if left to use the default X-Plane logic.
A first in X-Plane, the Load & Balance Manager is a pop up screen which allows you to change the load-out and balance in real time. Pick from thousands of combinations of seating arrangement, cargo hold weights, and fuel amounts. See the Center of Gravity change as you load the aircraft differently and burn fuel in flight.
The package comes with 14 liveries. Many more available online at X-Plane.org.
