VSKYLABS SF-25 released !
Hello guys !
Great news today !
The new VSKYLABS’s aircraft is now available.
The VSKYLABS Scheibe SF-25 Falke Project development for X-Plane was approved by Scheibe Aircraft GMBH (although it is an independent VSKYLABS project which is not endorsed and/or affiliated with/by Scheibe Aircraft GMBH). The project is featuring the SF-25 C variant (Falke 2000), which is equipped with a 80 hp engine, driving a two-blade wooden fixed pitch propeller (alternator and electric starter are included).
As in all VSKYLABS Projects, aircraft performance, flight dynamics and handling characteristics are the main core of the project. More than one hundred hours of pure flight dynamics testing and evaluation were made to bring this aircraft to maximum accuracy in terms of performance and handling qualities.
The aircraft is available now (25$) at the .org store:
Thorough information, instructions and Flight Manual can be found at the project’s page at VSKYLABS.COM:
Designed for Virtual Reality experience
The VSKYLABS Scheibe SF-25C is the first VSKYLABS design to include a dedicated VR (Virtual Reality) development phase in the design and development process. The aircraft is featuring a fully-configured and functional control suite which is optimized for VR functionality. This means that the cockpit can be operated with maximum comfort and fluency using VR controllers (for 100% VR usage of stick, throttle, spoilers, switches, circuit breakers, levers, handles etc…). The VR development process in this project was made with the native VR environment of X-Plane 11.20 (beta).
Here is a short raw video showing some VR action in X-Plane 11.20:
Note #1: In general, In X-Plane 11 itself, Rudder control solutions for VR are currently lacking and/or missing. This particular aspect is undergoing evaluation at VSKYLABS and It will be addressed in the first scheduled update for the package.
Note #2: In order to use and enjoy VR environment in X-Plane, user hardware and system specs should meet the required specifications for OS, CPU, GPU, MB and RAM which are specified both in the given VR hardware websites and at X-Plane.com.
