Following on from our PA-28 series, C152 and Duchess Model 76 aircraft, this highly detailed simulation of the Robin DR400-180 Regent is being developed by Just Flight's in-house team following comprehensive, hands-on research with a real-life DR400, G-BEUP, based at Goodwood Aerodrome with SportAir.
 
The DR400 is a four-seat, piston-engine aircraft equipped with fixed tricycle landing gear, 180hp four-cylinder engine and a large forward-sliding canopy. Excellent visibility, payload capabilities and a 130-knot cruise speed make this an ideal aircraft for touring and flight training.
 
The model will take advantage of the latest technologies such as PBR to produce stunning visual fidelity. The DR400 is flown all around the world and our add-on reflects that global popularity. The package will feature liveries from the UK, USA, Europe and Australia.


MODEL

  • Accurately modelled Robin DR400-180 Regent, built using real-world aircraft plans and comprehensive photography of the real aircraft
  • Numerous animations including sliding canopy, luggage door and engine exhaust
  • Ground equipment including chocks and tie-downs
  • 4096x4096 textures are used to produce the highest possible texture clarity
  • Bump and specular mapping used throughout the aircraft to produce a truly 3D feel
  • PBR materials (requires P3D v4.4 or later)

COCKPIT

  • A truly 3D virtual cockpit right down to accurately modelled seat belts and screw heads - every instrument is constructed fully in 3D with smooth animations
  • Authentic fuel and RPM gauge needle ‘wobble’
  • Dimmable instrument lighting
  • Cockpit textures feature wear and tear based on reference photos taken in the real aircraft to produce an authentic environment
  • Interactive checklists for every stage of flight, including engine start
  • Panel state system which will automatically save the panel state whenever a flight is saved and reload the panel state whenever that flight is loaded
  • Aircraft configuration system that will allow you to choose between 'cold & dark' or 'ready for take-off'
  • Fully functional and comprehensive IFR-capable avionics fit
  • Flight computer panel with useful information such as fuel burn, endurance, speed and wind speed/direction
  • Flight1 GTN and GNS integration in the virtual cockpit (Flight1 GTN/GNS sold separately)

AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS

  • Custom-coded electrical system with functional circuit breakers for isolating instruments and systems
  • Functioning carburettor heat and primer controls, including primer simulation for cold weather operations
  • Failures including spark plug fouling, limited battery life, vapour lock and more
  • Refill menu for quick and easy refilling of fuel and oil, and recharging of the battery

LIVERIES

The DR400 will be supplied with a range of liveries from the UK, USA, Europe and Australia.


OTHER FEATURES

  • Realistic and accurate flight dynamics based on real-world performance and handling data, and input from pilots
  • Authentic sound set with custom sounds for switches, canopy, primer control, wind noise and more
  • Comprehensive manual with panel guide and performance data
  • PSD Paint Kit included so you can create your own paint schemes
