The VSKYLABS Polaris Motor AM-FIB
("Flying Inflatable Boat") development for X-Plane was approved by 'Polaris Motor', allowing a great deal of reference materials and operational practices to be included in the design, modeling, engineering and development process. During development, first-hand materials and so-many detailed photos of practically every part of the FIB were shared by Polaris Motor company, for the purpose of this project (the VSKYLABS Polaris Motor AM-FIB for X-Plane is an independent project, which is not endorsed and/or affiliated with/by 'Polaris Motor').
An ultralight trike aircraft, also known as a flex-wing trike, weight-shift-control aircraft, microlight trike, delta trike or motorized delta plane, is a type of powered hang glider using a high-performance Rogallo wing coupled to a propeller-driven three-wheeled undercarriage. While many powered aircraft have three-wheeled landing gear, the term "trike" refers specifically to the form of aircraft described above.
Flight control in a trike is made by weight-shifting; the undercarriage structure is connected to the wing at a hinge-point, and the wing can be tilted in both X and Y axes. While on the ground (takeoff for example), pushing the wing control bar raises the angle of attack of the wing and lift is produced. As the aircraft is airborne, moving the control bar of the wing causes the undercarriage to swift both sideways or back and forth, and a weight-shifting control is achieved.
Thorough instructions, project evolution and design details are available in the project’s page at the VSKYLABS portal.
Highly detailed, fully animated realization of the Polaris Motor AM-FIB Amphibious trike.
Land and sea operations in a single model, transform from land to sea configuration as you fly.
Realistic flight handling qualities.
'Fly by Mouse' feature to simulate the movement of the control bar for actual Hang Glider flight training (no changes in X-Plane’s joystick setup is required to enable it).
Pilot object could be instantly hidden or not, for maximum 360 degrees field of view.
Easy Field of View toggle during flight.
Atmospheric FMOD sound pack.
GNS-530 is included.
Highly responsive support system/forum.
This is a project which is under constant development. All updates are free.

VSKYLABS Aerospace Simulations.
Instructions and project information are at the Project’s page at VSKYLABS:
version v2.0 -
Major update released (20th May 2020):
STMA Autoupdater plugin was added to the project.
Re-designed and tuned for X-Plane 11 Experimental flight model environment.
Ground and water handing tuneup.
Project internal architecture was updated to allow future updates within the project's development road-map.
Improved PBR textures all around.
Systems, Interactivity and VR:
Pilot figure conversion for VR operations (no-head operations).
Passenger was added (visuals + physical weight), including on-the-fly loading/unloading of the passenger (by clicking on her seat in VR/3D cockpit mode).
Parking brakes added to allow comfortable operation on inclined surfaces. Parking brakes interaction zones are the left portion of the boat, and/or the Brakes icon on the Smartphone.
Manual throttle was added, located in-front and on-top of the pilot's head, allowing manual throttle operation with VR touch controllers.
Control bar control using VR touch controllers was added.
GNS 530 was removed.
(Nov 2nd 2018)
fix to joystick throttle command issues.
