X-Plane Previews

SimCrew Annouces Van’s Aircraft RV-7


In a recent post on the Forums, we were introduced to yet another new development team for the X-Plane platform.

The post detailed some of the features we can expect from this project, depicting the popular, American-made, kit plane:

  • Option for 2 or 3 blade props
  • Toggleable wheel fairings
  • Tail-dragger to nose wheel configuration available
  • Dynamic persistence plugin to maintain wear and tear between flights

The three screenshots supplied show an exterior render of the whole aircraft, as well as an extremely detailed model of the Lycoming O-320.

Since the aircraft is in its early stage of development the team hasn’t announced a release date, though we’ll be sure to keep you updated on this project.
