Aircraft Review | Netavio Business Jet CJ4

Your personal reporter and reviewer Angelique van Campen reviewed on request this brand new Netavio Citation CJ4. Brand new because there’s no Citation CJ4 for X-Plane and brand new because this is the first modeled business jet from Netavio. Anyway, you can read about it in our comprehensive review. It was not only pleasant to discuss the things with Greg, it was also refreshing to talk to a real business jet pilot.

Aircraft Review | AOA Simulations F-22A

Your X-Plained.Com reviewers Andy Clarke and Angelique van Campen are pleased to offer you a massive review of the AOA Simulations F-22A Raptor. One of the words from Andy are ….. “this is an extremely interesting model. Yes it can be flown “out of the box” but this means it is not being used to anywhere near its potential.” A short conclusion …. a thoroughly impressive and enjoyable model! Check out our comprehensive Raptor F-22A review.

Aircraft Review | Aerobask Phenom 300

X-Plained.Com reviewer Angelique van Campen and Andy Clarke finished their Embraer Phenom 300 Aerobask tour. A tour, no, a massive review is the result. Both Andy and Angelique did a lot of testing and system description and operation. I can tell you that both Andy and Angelique had a lot of fun checking out this very nice and well modeled Embraer business jet. Curious what Angelique and Andy have to say? Due to the length of the review I advice you to relax, take a drink and enjoy the comprehensive Aerobask Phenom 300 review.

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.

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!

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.
