The Robin DR401 CDI155 is the latest work to come out of the brilliant minds over at Aerobask.

The DR401 is a small, wooden, single engine monoplane developed by Robin Aircraft. Which has been excellently brought into the X-Plane environment, with the typical feature list we have come to expect from Aerobask:

  • Accurate flight model developed by X-Aerodynamics.
  • Integrated Laminar G1000.
  • Fully functional, VR ready, 3D cockpit.
  • 4K textures, complete with PBR.
  • FMOD sound set.
  • Simulated FADEC test and preheating.
  • Windshield reflections.

As per our Community Charter, all of our reviews are free from bias, prejudice and favouritism. Don't forget, each reviewer has their own style and thoughts, although they all abide by the Review Guidelines - something I suggest you read.

Just Flight are a long-standing flight sim publisher and developer for both the ESP platform and X-Plane products, with their X-Plane products generally being made in partnership with Thranda Design. Their PA-28R Turbo Arrow III/IV is a welcomed addition to their extensive fleet and – more importantly – our hangars. This aircraft comfortably compliments their previous release of the PA-28R Arrow III. The Piper Turbo Arrow, is a member of the Cherokee PA-28 family of Piper aircraft, with both models making use of the 200 horsepower Continental TSIO-360-F Turbocharged engine, and retractable gear for faster cruising speeds. The IV model included in this package also sports the T-tail model.

Presentation

When the user loads an aircraft for the first time, they are always planted right where the magic happens… in the cockpit. Sticking with their high-quality assurance from other aircraft, it is clear to see that not a penny went to waste when modelling an accurate rendition of the Piper Turbo Arrow’s cockpit, which was made using plans from the real world counterpart! A high polygon count ensures that this aircraft is modelled down to the T(-tail), without sacrificing performance. This great detail on the 3d aspect of the aircraft allows the texturing to really shine, with 4k textures inside and out, no less. In comparison to other models I have tried in x-plane, I can definitely confirm that high-resolution textures add to the immersion and make this model stand out. I also feel that the different colours available for the cockpit make the experience feel much more personal.

X-Plane 11’s PBR system is also used to its full potential in this stunning artwork, we are able to view the fabrics and leathers of the interior in great detail, see dirt where the workhorse scars and let the aircraft shine, where it really shines.
