Utility Review | SkyScout for X-Plane

Your personal reporter and dedicated reviewer Angelique van Campen is pleased to inform you that she made it. Yes, she finished a comprehensive review of XPlane Aviator SkyScout. Angelique says “It wasn’t an easy review. It took a while to get the right flow. That has nothing to do with the product. It’s just different finding your way then reviewing an aircraft, an airport, a scenery or hardware.” Want to read the whole article? Take a cup of coffee, tea or whatever you prefer, relax, sit back and enjoy this in-depth SkyScout review.

Aircraft Review | FlyingIron Lockheed P38L Lightning

Back to the good old days. Our dedicated reviewer Andy Clarke takes an depth look into the FlyingIron Simulations Lockheed P38L Lightning. This will be fun as Andy starts with. But there’s more according to Andy …. “This is a very realistic model with lots of character and the presentation and detail really show off the unique profile. The model is responsive and forgiving to fly and needs far more gentle control inputs than I thought at first. The use of the engines both in start up and flight has been made very realistic and can be a challenge. It is worth practicing and persevering, I am no expert and I acquired the technique after a while.” Want to read Andy’s complete in-depth review? Check it out via this X-Plained review link.

Aircraft Review | Nimbus Britten Norman Islander

Your personal reporter Angelique van Campen and dedicated reviewer Andy Clarke explored, investigated and flew the Nimbus Simulation Studios BN-2 Islander. On behalf of X-Plained.Com are pleased to offer you an in-depth review of the Nimbus Britten-Norman BN-2B aircraft. The modeled version by the Nimbus team is representing the old fashioned cockpit lay-out. I mention that on purpose since the Islander is still build although these days it’s equipped with modern Display Units. Curious about our experience? Then you must check out our in-depth review. Enjoy!

 

Aircraft Review | Khamsin DHC-1 Chipmunk

This is such a nice and easy aircraft to fly and should get a place in your hanger. I’m talking about the Khamsin DHC-1 Chipmunk version 2.0 for X-Plane 11.50+. That said, your personal reporter Angelique van Campen rented in the south of England a virtual Chipmunk and tested out most of it.  But if you like to do, you can also do steep turns, slow flights (of course you should be) and spins. And much more. And therefore, Angelique invites you to check out her in-depth Chipmunk review at X-Plained.Com.

 

Utility Review | Stairport SAM World Jetways

Your personal reporter and reviewer Angelique van Campen virtually travelled around the world to check out Stairport SAM World Jetways. She visited default Laminar Research airports, but also a lot of payware add-on airports. Was it worth my time to figure out all the ins and outs of this payware plugin/extension? Yes, it was although it took me a lot of time to find the right words and the right flow, but luckily, she managed it. You can read all about her SAM World Jetways experience via this in-depth review link.
