The Cessna 172 is the tricycle version from the 170 tail-wheel model. However, many enthusiast around the world, especially in North America, have been doing modifications to this more powerful, spacious, and far well equipped C172 to get the tail-dragger's style back in their lives.

This is just one of the different ways to do such a modification, using C180 legs and tail-wheel parts, which, by the way, we offer in three variations: stock tyres, tundra tyres and covered stock tyres. All of these are dynamically modelled due to the gear's configuration. A special feature of the Tundra configuration that we call 'Water Walker' is added, in experimental form, for those lovers of risky manoeuvres.

Many legacy systems from the previous tricycle and floatplane releases are updated for good, and some others were developed particularly for this release.

See the Detailed Description for more details!


External and interior model

  • Highly accurate and optimised modeling for good performance; every visible mechanism or part on interior and exterior is modelled in detail
  • Elevator angle is affected by trimming setting due to prop wash or the free airstream; the yoke feedback is due to this action as well.
  • Almost every part or mechanism is animated in the external and internal model. Engine vibration is simulated as well as flexible items like antennas and static dischargers. Loose ends dance with the airspeed.
  • Texturing is applied depending on the relevance of the point of view, providing the user with a nice environment while keeps a friendly Frame Rate even in the latest versions of P3D
  • Ambience reflections, bumps, damages, dirt and sun reflection effects are applied, no matter which angle you are looking from
  • Open doors will close depending on the intensity of prop wash and the free airstream or the angle and the intensity of the wind, in case you are stopped
  • The cabin can be full of occupants, depending on the individual payload station weight setting. Pilot arms are animated with the pilot's yoke and all characters have natural animations on heads and eyelids.
  • Several cameras are included for external inspection or just for alternative point of views for your enjoyment
  • Custom 3D lights in all positions for a better visual experience. The landing and taxi light includes a spotlight effect that is stronger in low visibility conditions
  • Custom water splash effect (just for the 'Water Walker')

Virtual cockpit

  • Warm fully 3D ambience is experimented on the cockpit by the use of the right balance between shadows and lights, relaxing colour tone, precise and detailed model and leather upholstery work
  • Interior illumination is 'real', no texturing night-bright was used apart from gauges, in an attempt to offer the right ambience feeling. Red and white cabin lights combine to offer a realistic night flying experience. For easiest access in darkness, two custom key combinations are included in the cockpit view.
  • Full 3D gauges in two different avionics that offer:
     - Sound panel Garmin GMA 340
     - Custom GPS Garmin GNS 430 or Bendix/King KX 155 TSO radio 1
     - Bendix/King KX 155 TSO radio 2
     - Transponder Garmin GTX 330
     - None or Collins ADF 650 TSO receiver (includes NDB finder, of course)
    - None or Bendix/King DME receiver
  • Optional dynamic precipitation drops on windshield and windows. Wings project 'shadow' on lateral windows when you are immobile under the rain, which changes when the movement forces the angle of incidence of the rain.
  • Four interior cameras are included: Pilot, avionics zoom, front passenger and rear-right passenger. The pilot's yoke is removable for accessing light switches and the fully functional breakers.
  • Additional point of view to make tail-wheel taxiing easier. This is dynamically designed to provide a realistic pilot movement sensation
  • Almost everything that you see on the cockpit is functional and/or animated - doors and handles, switches, buttons, sunshields, windows, pilot's yoke lock, levers etc.
  • 2D panels are included for setting up the aircraft, reading checklists, checking cabin temperature, extinguishing fire, the aircraft tow tool and more
  • Optional Auto-Start feature which includes some additional starting procedures, proper throttle setting, prime, lights and others
  • All mouse actions can be useful on several buttons, switches, levers or animated objects, giving the user more flexibility and/or accuracy in dealing with the many cockpit functions
  • Custom key combination to reset the engine and DATCON counters. It also saves its records when saving the flight.
     
Paint schemes

This model includes four liveries and a functional white paint, useful for those who like to create their own designs. Each of these liveries is available for each of the three visual model variations, giving you 15 combinations to choose.

Liveries included are:

  • N320XA - blue strips based on 1979 Cessna factory scheme, USA
  • G-GNRT - blue strips based on 1980 Cessna factory scheme, UK
  • D-GRMN- red strips based on M model Cessna factory scheme, Germany
  • F-FRNC – blue and red based on 1980 Cessna factory scheme, France

Systems and additional features

  • Flight dynamics tested by actual pilots
  • Pilot assistance is provided to hold the current aircraft level in case you need to rest without pausing the flight
  • The aircraft lets you know when is ready to be used
  • Engine combustion with realistic performance and failures are simulated based on carburettor icing, soiled spark plugs, engine condition or even water ingestion in certain conditions. Due to abuse, the engine can burn out or fail permanently; the fire can be extinguished in flight with the proper procedure or on the ground via fire extinguisher tool
  • Stall horn system is realistically simulated; as in the actual aircraft you can fly indefinitely with the stall warning active
  • Engine smoke and fire effects are included. An engine fire also emits a sound to warn the pilot.
  • Custom sounds for switches, avionics buttons, engine, stall and doors
  • Complex electrical system with functional breakers that affect each system
  • Cabin temperature system is included, with a 2D thermometer indication. Conditions like cabin seal (doors, windows, heat lever and air lever positions), engine heat, external temperature, airstream produced by the propeller and the external free airstream will affect this system.

System Requirements:


  • Flight Simulator X, FSX: Steam Edition or P3D v1/v2/v3/v4
  • 2.3GHz PC
  • 2GB RAM
  • 1GB graphics card
  • Windows 10 / 8.1 / 7
