    X-Pilot Announces Download File Library!

    I am so pleased with your decision to add this facility to your site. You guys have conducted your affairs with dignity and professionalism that deserves recognition. It will be a great asset to the xplane community. Please accept my freeware Grob Tutor into the files - I hope you all enjoy flying it. Good luck with the future expansion.

    Version 1.1


    The Grob 115E is a two seater aircraft used by the RAF as a basic trainer. Optimized for WIDESCREEN 1920x1080 display (Non-Widescreen monitors users set screen to 1280x1025 to fly from right hand seat as default - use cursor keys to view left hand seat instruments) ------------------------ Wiki - description: The aircraft is constructed of carbon composite materials. The main fuselage and each wing spar is a single piece. It has a fixed Tricycle undercarriage with spatted wheels, a short nose bearing the 180 hp engine and a 3-bladed variable-pitch propeller. The cockpit features a broad canopy arch with good forward visibility and with side-by-side seating for pilot and student. The wings are tapered with square tips and the empennage consists of a large fin and rudder with an oblong tailplane with square tips mid-set to the fuselage. ---------------------- Download consist of: Highly detailed custom 2D cockpit Pilot and Student figures 22 Page User Guide - read before flying! To adjust the screen resolution for non - widescreen users go into the Xplane menu, go to SETTINGS, then RENDERING OPTIONS - and the screens settings are at the top left. Select 1280x1024 and tick the box to the left. . The right sided pilot instrument panel was to allow potential RAF pilots to become familiar with a left hand throttle that would be essential if they become fast jet pilots. Having the pupil on the left side would mean that the instructor would not be able to reach it. Cadets from the age of 16+ learn to fly in the Tutor and if suitable will move on to the Tucano and then the Hawk where the innstructor sits behind and the throttle is on the left side on both.

    Leading Edge Simulations Releases DC-3!

    Truely a great accomplishment. The DC3 is an iconic aircraft - now there is an Xplane aircraft worthy of the original. Well done guys!

    I've just started work earlier this year on a project of my own. I have the luxury of being able to dedicate my full time to the development of this aircraft unlike the guys that are making this one. I'll tell you now the sheer complexity of systems can bog you down and eat up time so fast its unbelievable. The developers of real life aircraft find deadlines are impossible to keep to it -looks like Sims are just the same. Great things need time to complete. There will always be the naysayers that tell you it ca'nt be done - they'll have to eat their words when they fly it for the first time! Alll the best.

    The old X-Plane

    Guys I spent considerable time and energy creating 2D cockpits that were not messed up but were fully functional to give the user the feel he was in the real craft. It took me longer to do this than it would to create a virtual cockpit. But it seems the end users prefer a VC over 2D.
