Rotate Previews MD-11 Landing Gear

Over on their website, aircraft developer Rotate has published some landing gear screenshots of their rendition of the McDonnell Douglas MD-11 for X-Plane.

The team has been working hard on the exterior model and texture work on the aircraft since the last post in March. These screenshots show the level of detail the team has included on the landing gear mechanisms, tyres and gear bays.

Alongside the work surrounding the landing gear, Rotate has also made progress in terms of performance and flight modelling which marks a pivotal point in the development of the aircraft as flight testing will start this week. This would suggest that the aircraft will be moving towards the final stages of development relatively soon. 

Although flight testing will begin shortly, Rotate has not given any indication as to when they feel the MD-11 will be ready. Head over to the Rotate website to see updates to the MD-80 and MD-11 developments.
