Aircraft Review | FlyJSim Dash 8 Q400

Our dedicated reviewer Andy Clarke tries to master the FlyJSim Dash 8 Q400 Next Generation model., According to Andy “This is a high quality model, when considered from any aspect, and is accompanied by detailed and helpful documentation that compliments the effort put in to producing the aircraft itself. The very high level of detail, both externally and internally, immerses the user in every aspect of using the Q400. The number of systems modelled and the way they integrate with each other creates a totally realistic flying environment.”

But Andy has so much more to tell. He continues “The challenges are quite addictive in the sense that I want to do another flight to complete it in a slightly more realistic manner. A great model for users of any experience, it flies well, is a stable aircraft and the combination of options and variations for each flight are seemingly endless.”

Aircraft Review | ToLiss Airbus A340-600

It took your personal reporter Angelique van Campen a bit of time, but she managed to complete her in-depth re view of the ToLiss Airbus A340-600. Although it was a lot of work, it was also fun exploring this large Airbus product. We’re all aware of ToLiss airbus aircraft, but the A340-600 was different in a way. It was Angelique’s task to find out all the ins and outs of this well crafted and awesome flying Airbus aircraft. As we all know, ToLiss is known about their FBW (Fly-by-Wire) plugin, and this model got the necessary input from ATPL pilots of which one is still flying the A340-600 and the other flew the A340-600.

Angelique thinks “The modeled 3D cockpit or flight deck is gorgeous with lots of weathering as you can and may expect. But weathering is not enough. How are the systems modeled or how does it fly or even better, how realistic does it fly? The answer to that is … awesome! You can use the real standard operating procedures next with it, or you can use the very well written tutorial which is highly professionally put together.”

Aircraft Review | Thranda PZL-104MA 2000

Your personal reporter Angelique van Campen is pleased to review this extraordinary original Polish STOL aircraft. She has seen many aircraft models in her aviation period, but this Wilga is weird, very weird. But the way it is crafted by Thranda Design is worth the review, worth Angelique’s her time and effort since it looks so nice, or perhaps she should say “cute”.

According to Angelique “this Wilga is another master piece I would say. There’s eye for all kind of tiny details as well as great 3D external and internal modeling. When you’re familiar with other Thranda Design aircraft, you know that they create nice and good looking GA aircraft of high quality with lots of features.”

Aircraft Review | PWDNH Let L-200D

Our dedicated reviewer Andy Clarke did a thorough inspection on the PWDNH Let L-200D aircraft. According to Andy “This is a well produced and presented model, created in detail and staying true to the original, both outside and inside. The developers have worked hard to ensure the systems in the model mirror the real thing and this makes it very interesting, although a little more detail about them in the manual may be beneficial.”

But Andy continues … “The set up page is a great extra allowing the user to add variation to settings and flights. Given its realistic lack of complicated systems it is a great model on which to learn and practice twin engined flight. An aircraft modelled correctly for its age and maintaining a considerable amount of character, giving the user a very enjoyable experience once its slightly quirky systems have been learned.”

Aircraft Review | JARDesign JD340-500

While your personal reporter and longtime reviewer Angelique van Campen is writing and writing, and seeking for additional information and adding interesting sections, she proud, also on behalf of the JARDesign Group, to present to you a comprehensive review of the JD340-500. It wasn’t written in one day, nor in a week. It almost took a month to complete this review, but it’s worth it. Lots of sections that are more then juist a review, more like a tutorial. The review also includes JAR Co-Pilot Linda which is a great addition for this aircraft. The free Linda works only on the ground and does all the checklists and procedures for you, while the paid Linda helps you also in the skies.

Anyway, although Angelique instructed at the Lufthansa Technical Training centers in Hamburg and Munich the Airbus A340-200/-300, her love for Airbus aircraft in general and in particular for the A340-500/600 is huge. That said, she loved the aircraft and although a couple of things need to be corrected (the JAR team is already working on those tiny things), the overall is a well modeled/crafted aircraft with gorgeous 3D cockpit.

I invite you to sit back, take the time, relax, and don’t forget to take a cup of coffee, tea or whatever you prefer, since this JD340-500 review is approximately 19.000 words, so a very long read, but worth it (she thinks).

Aircraft Review | JF BAe 146 Professional

On behalf of our dedicated and longtime reviewer Andy Clarke, I’m thrilled to inform you that X-Plained.Com has published Andy’s comprehensive Just Flight/Thranda Design 146 BAe Professional review.

According to Andy “This is a very high quality model with great character. The interior and exterior presentation is completed to a very high standard demonstrating a keen attention to detail. There are many different and interesting liveries and versions of the BAe 146.”

But there’s so much more. Andy continues “The amount of systems provided creates an extremely realistic environment and a challenge for pilots of all capabilities. The manual for the model is comprehensive and makes understanding the individual systems, instruments and controls and their interaction somewhat less daunting. Flying the model can be done at the jump in and fly level all the way to a completely immersive, detailed and demanding journey.”
