NEWS! - Released - VSkyLabs RC-PILOT: Jump Jet 2830 Testbed


Jump Jet Model Header.jpg


This is the second of the RC-PILOT series in the Jump Jet 2830 Testbed. Note...  this aircraft is not a full sized aircraft you can fly, but a MINIATURE R/C (Radio Controlled) AIRCRAFT MODEL.


The first RC-PILOT release from VSkyLabs was the Carbon Gunship 950, of which you can checkout here; Carbon Gunship 950 -VSKYLABS RC-PILOT


The VSKYLABS ‘RC-PILOT’: Jump Jet 2830 Testbed is an advanced simulation of a 1:5 scale Turbine powered Radio Controlled model airplane. It is powered by an RC Scale Turbofan power unit that provides thrust vectoring propulsion. The propulsion system provides bleed air pressure to stabilizing vanes in each wing tip, under the nose and in the tail boom, to allow pitch, roll and yaw control while hovering.

The highly defined VSL Jump Jet 2830 Testbed simulation is powered by X-Plane’s latest Experimental Flight Model environment, providing the most advanced flight model, aerodynamics and physics existing nowadays in real-time flight simulation software.


Project Highlights:

VSKYLABS 'RC-PILOT' project: built around the powerful, native X-Plane's 'Experimental Flight Model' environment.

Highly engineered VTOL/CTOL model airplane simulation scaled down to 1:5 (length of 2,830 mm), with true-to-life RC specs.

On-screen operations: Easy and straightforward operation of the model, including flight reset, auto-start and other operations without the need to go through menus…

VR (Virtual Reality) Ready.

Multi-Layer FMOD sound pack.

STMA Autoupdater is included: Project updates are fast and efficient!

Project under constant development.

Highly responsive VSKYLABS support system.





To note the VSkylab philosophy, is that you purchase an ongoing project, so any aircraft you purchase is not fully completed and 100%, that is the deal you sign up for to get access to the aircraft, all updates to the aircraft are free but changes can come infrequently if sometimes slowly.
