Description

The Cessna 172 is the tricycle version from the 170 tail-wheel model. However, many enthusiast around the world, especially in North America, have been doing modifications to this more powerful, spacious, and far well equipped C172 to get back the tail-dragger´s style to their lives.

This is just one of the different ways to do such modification, using C180 legs and tail wheel parts, which, by the way, we offer in three variations: stock tires, tundra tires and covered stock tires. All of these are dynamically modeled due to the landing gear configuration. A special feature about the tundra configuration that we call “Water Walker” is added, in experimental form, for those lovers of risky maneuvers.

Many legacy systems from the tricycle and floatplane previous releases are updated for good, and some other were developed particularly for this release.

External and interior model

  • Highly accurate and optimized modeling for good performance; every visible mechanism or part on interior and exterior are modeled on detail
  • Elevator angle is affected by trimming setting due to prop wash or the free airstream; the yoke feeds back due to this action as well
  • Almost every parts or mechanism is animated in the external and internal model. Engine vibration is simulated, as well as flexible items like antennas and static dischargers. Lose ends dance with the airspeed
  • Texturing are applied depending on the relevance of the point of view, providing the user with a nice environment while keeps a friendly Frame Rate even in latest versions of P3D
  • Ambience reflections, bumps, damages, dirt and sun reflect effects are applied, no matter the angle you are looking
  • Open doors will be close depending on the intensity of prop wash and the free airstream or the angle and the intensity of the wind, in case you are stopped
  • The cabin can be full of occupants, depending on the individual payload station weight setting. Pilot arms are animated with the pilot´s yoke and all characters have natural animations on heads and eyelids.
  • Several cameras are included for external inspection or just for alternative point of views for your enjoyment
  • Custom 3D lights in all positions for a better visual experience. The landing and taxi light includes an spotlight effect that is stronger at low visibility days or nights
  • Custom water splash effect (Just for the Water Walker)

Virtual cockpit

  • Warm fully 3D ambience is experimented on the cockpit by the use of a right balance between shadows and lights, relaxing colors tone, precise and detailed model, and a leather upholstery work
  • Interior illumination is “real”, no texturing night-bright was used apart of gauges, in an attempt to offer the right ambience feeling. A red and white cabin lights combines to offer a realistic night flying experience. For easiest access in darkness, two custom keys combination are included on the cockpit view
  • Full 3D gauges in two different avionics that offers:
    – Sound panel Garmin GMA 340
    – Custom GPS Garmin GNS 430 or Bendix/King KX 155 TSO radio 1
    – Bendix/King KX 155 TSO radio 2
    – Transponder Garmin GTX 330
    – None or Collins ADF 650 TSO receiver (Includes NDB finder, of course)
    – None or Bendix/King DME receiver
  • Optional dynamic precipitation drops on windshield and windows. Wings project “shadow” on lateral windows when you are immobile under the rain, which changes when the movement forces the angle of incidence of the rain
  • Four interior cameras are included. In order: Pilot, avionics zoom, front passenger and rear-right passenger. The pilot´s yoke is removable for accessing light switches and the fully functional breakers
  • Additional point of view to make easy the tail-wheel taxiing. This is dynamically designed for provide a realistic pilot movement sensation
  • Almost everything that you see on the cockpit is functional and/or animated. Doors and handlers, switches, buttons, sunshields, windows, pilot´s yoke lock, levers, yokes cord, and so on
  • 2D panels are included for setup the aircraft, read checklists, check cabin temp, extinguish fire, aircraft tow tool and more
  • Optional Auto-Start feature which includes some additional starting procedures, as proper throttle setting, prime, lights and others
  • All mouse action could be useful on several buttons, switches, levers or animated objects; giving the user more flexibility and/or accuracy for dealing with the many cockpit functions.
  • Custom key combination to reset the engine and DATCON counters. It also let save its records when saving the flight

Paint schemes

This model includes four liveries and a functional white paint, useful for those which like to make its own designs. Each of these liveries is available for each of the three visual model variations, giving you 15 combinations to choose. Liveries included:

  • N320XA – Blue strips based on 1979 Cessna factory scheme, USA
  • G-GNRT – Blue strips based on 1980 Cessna factory scheme, UK
  • D-GRMN- Red strips based on M model Cessna factory scheme, Germany
  • F-FRNC – Blue and red based on 1980 Cessna factory scheme, France

Systems and additional features

  • Flight dynamics tested by actual pilots
  • Pilot assistance is provided to hold the current aircraft level in case you need to rest a bit without pausing the flight
  • The aircraft let you know when is ready to be used
  • Engine combustion with realistic performance and failures are simulated based on carburetor icing, soiled spark plugs, engine condition or even water ingestion on certain conditions. Due to abuse, the engine can burn or fails permanently; the fire can be extinguish in flight with the proper procedure or on ground via fire extinguisher tool
  • Stall horn system is realistically simulated; as in the actual aircraft you can fly indefinitely with the stall warning active
  • Engine smoke and fire effect is included. As well the engine fire emits a sound to warns the pilot
  • Custom sounds for switches, avionics buttons, engine, stall and doors
  • Complex electrical system with functional breakers that affect each system
  • Cabin temp system is included, with a 2D thermometer indication. Conditions like cabin seal (doors, windows, Heat lever and Air lever positions), engine hot, external temp, airstream produced by the propeller and the external free airstream will affect this system
