News! - Now Released - Cessna 152 ll from JustFlight/Thranda

 

Only weeks after their excellent TB10 Tobago & TB20 Trinidad release then JustFlight/Thranda are already back with another aircraft...  Coming very soon is the X-Plane11 version of their Cessna 152 ll with the 110-hp (82-kW) Lycoming O-235-L2C piston engine, note the ll (Two) version is designated for the advanced avionics package "Nav Pac" for IFR use.

 

We got an early look at the aircraft and as expected it is another little gem from JustFlight. This is overall just a basic trainer, that is it what it was built for and that is exactly what the C152 does is in being delivered here, and now it has been released.

Quality is outstanding, and the C152 is a bit weary, teary...  to the good of course.

Flying performance and dynamics are excellent, perfect control and balance, for the "seat of the pants" fliers, they will simply love this aircraft's capabilities.

Internally the aircraft is nicely kitted out and well trimmed, not a lot of do,da's in autopilot or avionics, but that is not what this tiddler is all about, panel finish is excellent.

A quick circuit and I quickly loved the handling and fine control..

The C152 comes with the standard JustFlight menu...  with opening doors/windows, checklist, sound panel (FMOD Sounds), Flight Computer and Refill menu window... for Fuel, Battery Voltage and a Weights & Balance panel is now standard as well.

 

Official details include:

 

MODEL

  • Accurately modelled C152, built using real-world aircraft plans and comprehensive photography of the real aircraft
  • Numerous animations, including windows, doors, air vents, sun visors, map compartment and realistically animated ignition keychain that responds to G-forces
  • Ground equipment including chocks and tie-downs
  • Authentic labelling and placards based on those found in the real aircraft, including unique airworthiness documentation for each livery based on the country of origin
  • HD textures are used to produce the highest possible texture clarity and immersion
  • PBR (Physically Based Rendering) materials with real-time environment reflections for superb quality and realism
  • HDR lighting (real-time illumination of interior and exterior surfaces)
  • Detailed normal mapping for down-to-the-rivet precision of aircraft features


COCKPIT

  • A truly 3D virtual cockpit right down to accurately modelled seat belts and screw heads - every instrument is constructed fully in 3D with smooth animations
  • Cockpit textures feature wear and tear based on reference photos taken in the real aircraft to produce an authentic environment
  • Full VR support (VR manipulators, camera snap points, tweaked for comfortable usage)
  • Interactive checklists for every stage of flight
  • Aircraft configuration system that will allow you to choose between 'cold & dark' or 'ready for take-off' (if aircraft is stationary on the ground)
  • Fully functional and comprehensive IFR capable avionics fit including:
     - KMA 20 audio selector unit
     - KX 175B COM 1 / NAV 1 radio
     - RT-359A transponder unit
     - ADF 300 unit with ADF/REC/BFO modes
  • Interactive logbook panel for logging your flight details (X-Plane native)
  • Flight computer panel with useful information such as fuel burn, endurance, speed and wind speed/direction
  • GoodWay compatible
  • Ability to change barometric units from InHG to MB in altimeter adjustment
  • Option to activate flashlight from within pop-up window, to aid in those pitch-black cold and dark starts at night
  • Option to remove window and instrument reflection effects
  • Animated toe brakes
  • Radio knob animations routed through plugin logic, for optimum movement fidelity and sound synchronisation


AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS

  • Custom-coded electrical system with functional circuit breakers. Circuit breaker logic is linked to X-Plane's internal failure logic, so if the plane is set to fail a certain electrical component after a certain number of hours, the circuit breaker for that element will pop out.
  • Realistic landing gear with slow/fast tyre rotation animation (blurry when rotating fast), and wheel chocks and tie-downs
  • Functioning carburettor heat and primer controls
  • Dedicated interactive engine pop-up window displaying values such as fuel tank weights and imbalance, fuel pressure, oil pressure, oil temperature, battery charge (with quick charge option), and information about spark plug fouling and vapour lock condition
  • Simulated vapour lock condition, with warning pop-up and suggested actions
  • Simulated spark plug fouling condition, with indication of percentage of fouling
  • Lighting system includes separate lighting control for gauges (via rheostat) and realistic implementation of radio light rheostat
  • Custom external light logic with custom strobe light pattern and custom light halos for added realism
