Thranda Design has announced the next aircraft in the Dynamic Generation Series, the Cessna U206G Stationair, is now available for X-Plane.
The aircraft sports nine high-resolution liveries with PBR (Physically Based Rendering) materials, true-to-life plate deformation and to-the-rivet precision. It also sports different landing gear layouts: tundra tires, mud flaps and wheel fairings.
It is also possible to create custom liveries based on two basic design layouts (modern and classic) in real time. A dynamic livery editor is adjustable in real time and features full PBR control with the ability to create custom liveries such as metallic, matte or a sandblasted look with dirt and scratches to set the desired amount of wear and tear.
The package comes with six panel presets as well as a fully configurable 3D instrument panel with more than 50 instruments, including a GNS430/530 or an Aspen EFD 1000. Support for the RealityXP 650 and GTN750 is also included. Any instrument can be moved to any location on the panel or even between the pilot and co-pilot's positions.
Ground equipment includes a driveable electric tug, chocks, covers and tie-downs that keep the aircraft from moving in high winds. It also comes with different start-up options, such as cold-and-dark or ready for take-off, etc.
It comes with accurate systems simulation, a fully modelled Continental IO-520-F engine and authentic flight dynamics designed with the help of real-world Stationair pilots. DynaFeel controls simulate how strongly the control surfaces are affected by oncoming air.
Other details include an optional cargo pod with realistically simulated weight and drag characteristics and a weight and balance manager with options for individual passenger seat weights, centre-of-gravity control and the ability to create a hybrid passenger/cargo layout.
A high-fidelity, multi-track sound set features smooth transitions, atmospheric effects, and 3D audio effects, including blade slapping. Individual buttons and switches in the cockpit each have unique sounds and the engine has a cool-down ticking sound based on engine temperature.
The Stationair is available on x-plane.org for $39.95
