Airfoillabs C172SP Review

Your personal reporter Angelique van Campen goes back to her GA roots; exploring, flying and testing the Airfoillabs Cessna C172SP Skyhawk. She rents this X-Plane 10.51 and X-Plane 11 model at KJGG and makes a IFR flight from EHBK to ELLX. By the way; her overall impressions are based on using X-Plane 11 as flight simulator platform.

And, is it fun? Is it worth the model?
Angelique concludes that the Airfoillabs C172SP is worth every penny although some external and internal weathering would be a bit more realistic.

Knowing this, the rest of the model and the implemented features is overwhelming, even with her real C172 experience.

You’re curious what she has to say about it and how she felt the aircraft flies? Then there’s an absolute need to read her comprehensive Airfoillabs review.

Aerobask Antares 20E Review

Looking for a great glider and looking for an adventure with the Lange Aviation Antares 20E from Aerobask?

If you like gliding with the possibility to use the onboard motor, then this Aerobask Antares 20E is a great model. Together with the thermal plugin from Alex Ferrer, your X-Plane 10 and/or X-Plane 11 adventure can begin.

Stephane Buon, lead developer of Aerobask modeled this glider a while ago, and recently it was updated for X-Plane 11 and when I say updated, the glider benefits now of all the new X-Plane 11 features.

Angelique van Campen, your personal reporter as always, has tested the Antares 20E with both X-Plane 10.51 and X-Plane 11 including the special thermal plugin. Was it worth it, was it fun, did it all work? You can read it in her comprehensive review.

Alabeo Staggerwing Review

Your personal reporter Angelique van Campen dives this time in the Alabeo Staggerwing.

It’s not one of the latest Alabeo aerobatic aircraft models, neither less, it’s still worth to check it out, also because of the aerobatic flight dynamics. The current version 3.2 is officially only compatible with X-Plane 10.51, but that doesn’t mean she can’t check it with X-Plane 11.

That said, Angelique tested for you the Staggerwing with both X-Plane versions and although the Staggerwing doesn’t benefit from all the exclusive X-Plane 11 features, it’s still a great aircraft to fly.

According to Angelique “The Alabeo Staggerwing is an easy aircraft to fly, an awesome 3D model with a nice and realistic cockpit. And yes, the cockpit looks quite simple, but it looks the same as the real Staggerwing, so there’s nothing wrong with that. The Alabeo Staggerwing comes with a few liveries, but additional liveries have been uploaded at X-Plane.Org.

Review | JRollon Jetstream Super 31

A comprehensive review, written for you on request ….. the JRollon Jetstream Super 31 or also known as the Jetstream 32.

Yes yes, your personal reporter Angelique van Campen did check this older X-Plane 10 and X-Plane 11 compatible aircraft for you. Was it worth it, is it still worth the package thus the price you have to pay for it? She still thinks it is although since then, many other medium size or commuter aircraft are released.

This aircraft is brought to you with the help of X-Plane.Org, who offered me this package. One of the advantages via X-Plane.Org is that there’s no Gizmo plugin software installed and no complex registrations are needed.

You’re curious what she has to say? Then it’s worth to read her in-depth JRollon Jetstream 32 review.

Alabeo C207 Skywagon Review

Big, bigger, biggest … the Alabeo Cessna C207 Skywagon.

Perhaps it’s all very confusing, the Cessna C205, C206 and C207 models are all related to each other. With that in mind, your personal reporter Angelique van Campen tries to find it out, flies with it on a IFR and VFR flight and comes to the conclusion that this Alabeo model is still worth every penny.

According to Angelique “What can I say … I enjoyed flying around with the Alabeo C207 Skywagon. It’s as usual a nicely modeled GA aircraft, with some new features and luckily, an old-fashioned “original” cockpit. Old-fashioned or not, the overall instrument quality and virtual cabin is well made and regarding the indicators, razor sharp when zoomed in!”
