For crewed flights we use vSkyLabs C-47
Please note that we don’t use a free model of DC-3
Probably you know that there is a free model of DC-3 for X-Plane… Why we chose this particular C-47? We use this model for the following reasons:
This model has high accuracy. It means that you can use real C-47’s Pilot manual for study this virtual model.
VSKYLAB C-47 is very high quality project. Moreover, the author constantly update his project (development and fixing problems) – you will receive update automatically ( STMA AutoUpdater ).
- VR ready.
Some of our members has VR. This project perfectly works with VR.
In the cockpit you will find two GPS – each pilot can use his GPS independently.
VSKYLABS С-47 has old Sperry autopilot which works as appropriate. In contrast the free model has “magic autopilot”.
You really have to know this machine for use it. flying on the VSKYLAB C-47 you must monitor the operation of the engines to prevent their overheating… Must when and how to use the anti-icing system etc, etc…
