Take Command!: SR22 Series Released

X-Aviation has announced Take Command! SR22 Series is out now.

Developed in partnership between TorqueSim and RealSimGear, the Take Command!: SR22 Series includes both the normally aspirated and turbo SR22 G3 variants in one package. Other highlights include a detailed 3D model with 4K PBR (Physically Based Rendering) textures, custom FMOD sounds and accurately modelled systems and flight model.

Highlighted Features

  • Custom IO-550 engine simulation. Cylinder detonation, spark plug fouling, improper magneto grounding, and more. The SR22TN adds the Tornado Alley Turbonormalizing system. All components are modelled from real data with complex inter-component interaction.
  • Detailed electrical system. Simulation of all buses, circuit breakers, Master Control Unit, both alternators, and both lead-acid batteries. Loads on the electrical system can affect engine performance.
  • High-fidelity flight model, custom airfoils, stall strips, cuffed wings, and accurate control surface deflections are all modelled.
  • Maintenance and failure model so excessive wear will affect airframe performance and safety. Cylinder detonation is driven by the physics engine, TKS fluid panels drain over time in warm conditions and need to be primed, tyres flatten, brakes fade, the propeller can experience FOD (Foreign Object Damage) on unprepared surfaces.
  • Custom TKS Ice Protection System (FIKI) with full system logic control in normal and backup modes.
  • Oxygen system tank temperature causes the difference between sensed and actual pressure, and the oxygen flow rate depends on the number of passengers on board.
  • Custom fuel system with vapour lock simulation. Every component in the fuel delivery path is simulated and contributes to the overall system behaviour.
  • X-Plane 11 G1000 with additional customisations including engine pages, synthetic vision, lean-assist functionality, CAS simulation, and checklists.
  • The FMOD sound pack recorded from the real aircraft. Every switch, knob, lever, and button has been modelled.
  • Persistent aircraft state - when you shut down the aircraft, you will return to it in the state in which it was left, and engine components will take their real-time to cool. Every switch, flight control position, fuel state and on-airport position is restored upon reload.
  • Documentation includes an 82-page Airplane Information Manual and a brief guide.
