Freeware C152X Realism Mod Released for MSFS

A brand new freeware modification for the default Cessna C152 has been released for Microsoft Flight Simulator. This new freeware module sees various improvements across the board that greatly enhances the default aircraft fixing various nuances found within the plane.

The initial post was shared by DRF30q on the Avsim forums, who also provided the Git repository for people to download this new modification. The modification itself doesn’t add a new aircraft to the simulator, but rather it enhances the default C152 with numerous improvements. In the list provided by the developer, areas such as the fuel consumption has been calibrated correctly, whilst also making the fuel tanks the long-range edition. Furthermore, the electrical system has been fully remodelled using the documented electrical loads and if the battery does go flat, then various systems will fail accordingly. Another area of interest is the fact that there is various modifications to the engine performance which better reflects the Lycoming O-235L2C (115HP, 2700RPM).

There are, of course, some caveats with the aircraft modification that you should be aware of if you intend on installing the changes.

To install, you will need to head to the Github page, download the package and drop it into your Microsoft Flight Simulator Community Folder.

This news follows on from yesterday where we shared information about the default A320Neo within Microsoft Flight Simulator also getting some community modifications taking it beyond the included plane.

Thanks to EvidencePlz for the tip.

Modification List:

  • Modified stall speeds flap up/flap down in accordance with published information. Aircraft will now stall at a significantly higher speed.
  • Numerous changes to engine performance, now in accordance with Lycoming O-235L2C (115HP, 2700RPM) See note below.
  • Fuel consumption adjusted.
  • Long Range Fuel Tanks 37.5USG total useable. See note below.
  • Fuel Gauges correctly calibrated.
  • Fuel Gauge indications will vary realistically in out of balance flight (depending on quantity of fuel in tank) and also on the ground when the aircraft is not wings level.
  • Flight tested to verify climb, cruise, service ceiling, fuel consumption etc in accordance with published information.
  • Oil Temperature Gauge – gauge calibration and oil temperature modelling adjusted.
  • Oil Pressure Gauge – gauge calibration and oil pressure modelling adjusted.
  • Electrical system – completely remodelled, using documented electrical loads etc.
  • Now models realistic battery discharge/charge and subsequent electrical system behaviour.
  • If battery goes flat, various systems will fail at various voltage levels as the battery discharges.
  • Ammeter – gauge calibration and behaviour.
  • Low voltage light now comes on below ~ 1000 RPM as in real life.
  • OAT thermometer now operates regardless of the position of the master switch.
  • The overhead (Dome) light can now be dimmed by the dimmer knob below the pilot control yoke.
