Hot Start’s TBM 900: The FSElite Video Review

Our newest video producer, Ronnie, has worked tireless to create a brand new video review of the fantastic Hot Start TBM 900 for X-Plane 11.

I’m not going to spoil too much, but suffice to say, he loved the experience with the plane, the level of detail and how much system depth there is to it. You can find out his full thoughts in the video above.

Lets take a look at Hot Start’s TBM 900 for X-Plane 11 and land it in some dirt!

MilViz T310R (For X-Plane 11): The FSElite Review

Featured Image
7.6
The T310R is one of the many variants of Cessna's C310, with the T310R being a turbocharged, lengthened version of the twin-engine six-seater piston aircraft. There has always been a large market for twin-piston aircraft - mainly due to their fail-safe nature, versus their single-engined counterpart - and Cessna capitalised on this in the 1950s with the development of their

X-Plane is renowned as being a platform with a great amount of study-level aircraft worth drooling over. One of the developers credited for producing a couple of those is FlyJSim.

While their team is small, FJS carries a wealth of experience between them that allows them to create some magnificent simulations of some classic aircraft. You only need not look further than their 732 TwinJet v3, that was released at the start of 2018, to see how the development team is capable of some of the best aircraft simulations available to the home flight simmer.

With the refresh of their 727 Series, bringing it to version 3, FJS has once again shown they are the masters of their craft.

Presentation

Included in the package are -100, -200 and -200F models that, in their design at least, have not changed since version 2 of the aircraft.  However, their flight models have been updated to be compatible with X-Plane 11. The texturing, on the other hand, has been updated to higher resolutions, and the entire aircraft has been given the Physics-Based Rendering treatment (more commonly referred to as PBR).

The cockpit has an incredible presence that feels familiar for an aircraft of the era. While sitting in the left seat at night, the warm glow of the lights from the engineer’s station is apparent from behind you, casting a retro ambience over the pedestal and up onto the main instrument panel.  Every switch and dial in the business end of the aircraft is modelled and functional, including the entire engineer’s station, overhead, instrument panel, pedestal, and the cockpit voice recorder event marker.

MBS International Airport, located in Freeland, Michigan, is a small airport which services both general aviation and commercial operations. Once used as a World War 2 base for the United States, MBS reopened for commercial use in the mid-1940s and saw a boom in aircraft movements during the 80s and 90s, as airline expansion meant more and more would operate
