Aircraft Review | VSkyLabs C-47 Skytrain

It wasn’t an easy job, and it took a lot of time to figure out how all the systems work and above all, to fly the C-47, but it was worth your personal reporters time. On behalf of your reviewer Angelique van Campen, we at X-Plained.Com present to you a massive in-depth review of the VSkyLabs C-47 Skytrain FLP (Flying Lab Project). I suggest that you seek for a relax seat, take something to drink and eat since it is a long read, but worth every paragraph. Oops, almost forgotten. Here’s the link to this comprehensive review. Enjoy!

Aircraft Review | NKDesign C140

Our dedicated reviewer Andy Clarke checks out the NKDesign Cessna C140. You’re right, a very old, almost a historical GA aircraft, but Andy had a lot of fun and worth to check out the model. This is a fun aircraft to fly. There is real character to the appearance of the aircraft augmented by some bespoke sounds to accompany various actions and operations. A real opportunity also for those who want to practice VFR flight. You can read Andy’s review via this X-Plained.Com link.

Airport Review | CFXP Vancouver Airport

Your personal reporter and reviewer Angelique van Campen took a virtual flight to Vancouver International Airport, Canada and explored the modeled Canada4XPlane airport. It is thru that the modeled airport comes with lots of tiny details, and the whole Sea Island is taken into account. It was worth Angelique her time to review this airport and is it worth your money to buy it? The answer is simple; yes, I enjoyed every minute exploring each corner of the airport. You can read her in-depth review that not only comes with a thorough review of the modeled airport but it also comes with a lot of tips and tricks.

Scenery Review | Orbx TrueEarth GB Central

This is an easy job for our dedicated reviewer Andy Clarke, reviewing Orbx TrueEarth Great Britain Central. As Andy lives in the UK, it’s not far from his hometown to explore the beauty of the Central of England, made possible by Orbx with their TrueEarth packages. According to Andy “Given the size and coverage of the scenery it is impossible to cover every iconic building and every area. The whole view fitted together and created stunning realism.” Overall, an awesome package. You can read Andy’s complete in-depth review with a video surprise at the end of his review.

Aircraft Review | Part I – Thranda Design Beaver

Your personal reporter and reviewer Angelique van Campen is pleased to inform you that on behalf of the Thranda Design team she tried to find all the ins and outs of the modeled DHC-2 Beaver. And I can tell you, she had a lot of fun reviewing this model. You can read her in-depth Beaver impression via this review link. Enjoy the reading and feel free to comment.

Scenery Review | Orbx TrueEarth Britain South

Our dedicated reviewer Andy Clarke explored for you this time his own country and flew around from East to West, from North to South, covering the Orbx TrueEarth Great Britain South scenery. According to Andy “There is a great temptation to just keep on flying over this scenery, interested in the next detail to be viewed. The standard of presentation certainly is a game changer in terms of flight experience and creates another reason to simply get in a plane and fly. The package also assists greatly with VFR flight. Not all buildings are modelled in detail, but even those not given special attention are in the correct place and add to the view.” It has been an exiting journey for Andy and Angelique, who helped Andy with a couple of scenic YouTube flights.
You can read it all in Andy’s comprehensive and detailed review.
