HD Flight Dynamics for your X-plane aircraft

Why should your X-plane masterpiece rest on anything less than the best flight model possible?

 

X-Aerodynamics can create highly accurate, realistic flight models for payware aircraft projects. This performance model (the planemaker model) is invisible under the 'skin' of the 3D objects and graphical details of a high-end payware aircraft but is responsible for all of the performance and handling in the simulator. 

 

What you can expect:

  • Accurate Planemaker aircraft model, which provides the basis for accurate performance and handling. ​​

  • Accurate engine modeling, including fuel consumption, critical altitudes, and speeds, etc. to the full extent that X-plane is capable. Props tuned to provide accurate thrust.

  • Performance fine tuning: Accurate performance, using published numbers, performance graphs, and test-pilot reports, wherever available (target <3% deviation).
     

Not included unless requested:

  • Aircraft textures

  • 3D objects (except as generated in Planemaker)

  • Panel (A placeholder may be included with new models to assist with testing and tuning)

  • ‘Plug-ins’ that extend or modify X-plane functionality

  • Custom sounds

 

Source information:

The accuracy of the flight model is, of course, dependent on accurate data to work from. I will endeavour to source the best data I can find, however, any data you can provide will help produce the best possible result. The following are particularly helpful, if they can be provided:

 

  • Pilot’s operating handbook (POH) / Flight Manual

  • Maintenance manual

  • Flight test reports

  • Performance charts / graphs

 

Outcome:
The resulting product will be detailed flight models that are as close to real as is possible with the current version of X-plane.

 

Timeline:

The development time for an aircraft flight model is typically shorter than for your 3D graphics, textures, etc. We can discuss your timeline and work to your requirements. Typically, a completed flight model can be delivered in under 30 days.

 

Pricing:

Determined on a per-project basis, as no two projects are exactly the same. Some considerations are:

 

  • Project complexity

  • Mandatory performance requirements

  • Sales expectations (for payware)

Please contact me to discuss a project and any questions you may have about what X-Aerodynamics can do to enhance your project.

While every effort is made to ensure accuracy of appearance and in-simulator behavior of the aircraft types developed, there is no guarantee that these will exactly match their real-world counterparts. The use of flight simulators for design, training, skills currency, and recreation is encouraged, however, users should be aware that no simulator model can perfectly emulate reality. There may be minor or major differences between simulator models and real-world performance due to limitations of the simulator or the aircraft model portrayed.
