Xtreme Prototypes has shared screenshots of their upcoming Learjet 25 v3.0 for P3D and FSX with FSElite.
Building on their already excellent version 2.1, this upcoming model could be classified as more than just an upgrade, with the features and changes too numerous to list here.
Head developer Alain Rouleau says the manual for the plane is “over 300 pages” and the team is excited for the release of this plane. While there is no set date for release, Rouleau says “we always take the time (it takes) to deliver a great product to our users, and nothing gets out the door until it’s up to our quality standards.”
The team is currently in the process of downsizing the native Prepar3D models for FSX, and as expected, the FSX version will not support all of the features that will be available for P3D.
Rouleau said the extensive manual will include a section to help users install third-party addons, systems and gauges (like the GNS, GTN, and radar) along with instructions on how to customize and program the buttons and knobs in the VC.
The plane will feature four new virtual cockpit configurations with retrofitted instrument panels, full 3D integration of the GNS 530 and GTN 650/750 (available separately from Reality XP and Flight1), full 3D integration of the Rex/Milviz WX Advantage weather radar (available separately from Rex Simulations), customizable gauges to display and control third-party GPS, radars and transponders, 13 new liveries in addition to the ones from version 2.1 (23 liveries in total), interior and exterior dynamic lights compatible with the latest versions of Prepar3D®, new interior/exterior textures, a fully-functional GPU (Prepar3D®), new pilots, and an updated 320-page flight manual.
In the coming days, we will give you an exclusive first look at the product, along with the extensive list of features and changes. In the meantime, head to the product page on the Xtreme Prototypes website for a look at the incredibly long list of features and changes coming to this plane.
No price has been released yet, but Rouleau has confirmed that current owners of 2.1 will enjoy a reduced upgrade price over the regular price. The developer has also hinted at a March release, but reiterates that plane will be released when absolutely ready.
