The X-Plane community is ready to welcome the v2 of the widely famous Leading Edge Simulations DC-3, which is a major update of the aircraft that has sold a lot of copies since 2012.
it will be a significant upgrade to the current DC-3 that LES has had on the market since 2012. In comparison, it will be multitudes more realistic in systems simulation that you have come to expect from Leading Edge Simulations, and further, the 3D modeling and texturing has huge upgrades as well.Cameron in x-pilot topic
As some other developers have done, LES has implemented a “maintenance” system which simulates the wear of components like the engines.
The official release date is not known yet, but since X-Aviation has announced it officially, it’s right to pretend that it’s almost behind the corner, after a year and a half.
The DC-3 is the base to start the discussion about AirfoilLabs, which is developing a military version of the aircraft which has revolutionized commercial aviation in the first half of the last century.
The C-47 is undergoing the first stages of development, indeed there are only a couple of renders available showing the military cabin.
This will be the biggest aircraft developed by Airfoillabs, which has already completed two study-level simulations of the Cessna C172SP, including a version with G1000 avionics and of the King Air 350.
It’s legit to expect, after all, the same depth of simulation of these models.
The airplane is likely to become one of the favorites of the community flying military or vintage aircrafts, since the only C-47 available is the freeware Aeroworx’s model.
