FSElite recently received a tip from a guy named Neil telling us that Mad Flight recently released multiple preview shots of their new SP-30 on X-Plane.org.

The photos show a 3d performance and notes checklist moving around with the character and a modeled oil canister. The checklist form only from what we have been given so far. Please do keep in mind that this is a Russian upgrade of the STOL so the checklist and all of the written info are in Russian.

FSElite First Look: Vertx DA-62


Sean Moloney, best known for his work at RealAir, has recently returned to the flight sim world after a prolonged absence. With him, he brings a new development studio, a new product line, but most importantly, a new plane, the Vertx DA-62. From the ashes of RealAir comes Sean’s talent roaring back into life. Today, we’re taking a first look into exactly what Vertx have been up to and what you can soon expect in your simulator. But first, a little history about the DA-62.

Note: The Vertx DA-62 is currently in pre-release beta. This is a first look article made to deliver my impressions of the pre-release version of the plane. Features are subject to change.

The DA-62 is a twin-engine GA aircraft produced by Diamond Aircraft, capable of seating between 5-7 people based on configuration. Having only taken its first flight as a prototype back in 2012, the DA-62 is a modern airplane through and through, sporting advanced and efficient diesel engines, as well a modern carbon fiber fuselage and wing construction, and a well-appointed cockpit fitted with state of the art G1000 avionics (later models come equipped with the G1000NXi suite) as well as modern amenities such as push-button engine start and automatic ECU test. An end result is a plane that is as modern as it is easy to fly, and as luxurious as it is capable. Truly a well-rounded workhorse.
