Aircraft Review | Carenado C208B EX G1000

I’m pleased to inform you that X-Plained.Com has released Andy Clarke his comprehensive review of the Carenado C208B Grand Caravan EX G1000. According to Andy “This model is created to a high visual and audible standard that creates a very realistic and convincing environment for the user. Attention to detail is impressive. I found a few challenges in that the Librain plug in created a problem, and the fact I could not make the PFD and MFD pop out, but these are minor issues which can easily be addressed in future updates.”

Andy continues “I do think the user would benefit from a cockpit diagram to make the use of instrumentation easier. The aircraft is great to fly either by simply loading and flying or by creating more in depth flight experiences by using all of the systems and procedures provided. The aircraft responds well to inputs, either manual or autopilot, and is more agile than its size suggests. A good and interesting model for pilots of all levels of experience.”

Video | Pilot Plus Wycombe Air Park Drone

Welcome to Pilot Plus / Orbx EGTB Wycombe Air Park.

Your personal reporter and virtual GA pilot Angelique van Campen takes you on a tour in and around EGTB Wycombe Air Park. Actually, the tour is made with a virtual drone that shows you all the ins and outs of Pilot Plus their latest airfield. Is it worth the 8 minutes to look at? Oh yes, it is, believe me! The video was made with a lot of passion and besides that, it was only possible due to the Stick and Rudder Studios application X-Camera. Although not perfect, I really enjoyed creating these 27 camera views that offer you great impressions on the modelled airfield as well as what’s around.  

Enjoy and comments and likes are always appreciated. By the way, the video was made and complied on an iMac Pro using Apple Final Cut Pro X version 10.4.8, recorded with Screenflick from Rogue Amoeba and a mix of different sounds.

Airport Review | Pilot Plus/Orbx Wycombe Air Park

Pilot Plus developer Joe invited your personal reported Angelique van Campen to have a look at Wycombe Air Park (EGTB).

Angelique jumped into her Cessna 152 and via via she flew to EGTB. Medium and large aircraft are not allowed so this was a nice test. Together with Orbx TrueEarth Britain South it was a great experience. The modeled airfield or air park is awesome. She was surprised about all the different trees she saw, but she was also impressed by the tiny details included in this airfield.

As we see often, the EGTB package not only covers the airfield but a bit more and that also includes objects, lots of objects outside the airfield fences. According to Angelique it was worth every minute to explore this tiny airfield.

Aircraft Review | Floridian vFlyteAir C150 Challenge

Your personal reporter Angelique van Campen thinks she has written many reviews related to the Cessna C150/C152 aircraft models from Carenado, Just Flight and now from vFlyteAir. She’s aware of the modified for X-Plane 11 Nhadrian C152, but that’s a different story and not yet had the time to review this package.

But what’s the plan? Will it be a VFR cross country flight and if so, where?
The plan is to cross Florida, departing from KEVB and heading for Ocala International Airport-Jim Taylor Field and from here at a heading of 270 degrees to Cedar Key or actually, to the airfield Lewis (KCDK). A bit long trip, leaning is needed, but it’s possible and else on the way back you can always stop at one of the fields on the mainland to refuel. And that with the vFlyteAir C150 Commuter Trainer configuration.

Scenery Review | TrueEarth Britain North

This is not just a scenery impression, neither it’s a short review with screenshots showing you the beauty of Orbx TrueEarth Britain North. It’s much more then that, but before I reached the “wow” factor, I was many weeks further. A scenery like this TrueEarth package needed for me a different approach. I couldn’t and I didn’t want hundreds of screenshots showing you the Scottish landscape with Orbx, so another and different approach was needed. Videos!

Making a video as you think of was not the right idea so another approach was needed and that was selection several regions of Scotland, make screenshots on the flights and combine them together. Of course, I liked it, and I hope you like it too. That said, your personal reporter Angelique van Campen took the Orbx plane to visit the TrueEarth Britain North scenery. From one to another pace she visited many areas of this massive scenery package. Curious what you all saw, what she thinks of it? Check it out via this comprehensive review link.

Airport Review | Bristol Definitive Airport

We’re pleased to offer you an in-depth review of the Pilot Plus Bristol Definitive Airport, written for you by our dedicated reviewer Andy Clarke and your personal reporter Angelique van Campen.

According to Andy “There is considerable attention to detail throughout the scenery and whilst it should be remembered this is flight simulator scenery there is something to view at ground level when taxiing an aircraft or generally moving around the airport.” Angelique adds to this “I’ve very happy with what I see. I do like the modeled airport a lot, especially when you compare it with real photos. That the default Laminar Research EGGD is not what you expected from it or that it can’t compete with the Pilot Plus Bristol Definitive Airport, makes sense. That said, EGGD is worth every penny!”

All together worth the read. That said, we invite you to read this comprehensive Pilot Plus Bristol Definitive’ review.
