News! - Now Released! - XP11 Aircraft Upgrade for Carenado 690B Turbo Commander


Carenado have released their X-Plane11 version of their lovely 690B Turbo Commander. This is a slightly different aircraft to their original release in the: Quick Flight Review : AeroCommander Shrike 500s by Carenado here. I do remember one thing, it was a very nice aircraft to fly, and be in.





The aircraft comes with all the X-Plane11 updated features, and more.


Special Features

  • Version 1.0
  • Only for X-Plane 11
  • State-of-the-art configurable FPS-friendly logic system.
  • Fully VR compatible
  • Full PBR (Superb material shines and reflections)


  • Specially designed engine dynamics for XP11.
  • Flight physics optimized for XP11 standards.
  • Ground handling adapted for XP11 ground physics.
  • Physically Based Rendering materials and textures throughout.
  • PBR materials authored with industry-standard software used by the film and gaming industries.
  • X-Plane GNS530 (FPS friendly)
  • Support for RealityXP's GTN750* (integrated into 3D cockpit, when available).
  • Goodway Compatible.
  • Realistic behavior compared to the real airplane. Realistic weight and balance. Tested by several pilots for maximum accuracy.





From these release images the 690B Turbo Commander does look quite different from the earlier version, so it will be interesting to compare them.
