Aerobask Unveils Airborne Preview of the Falcon 8X
May 13, 2019
Aircraft development team Aerobask have quietly dropped the first in-sim preview of their in-development Falcon 8X via their Facebook page just a few minutes ago.
Their new project is in partnership with the aircraft's real-world manufacturer Dassault and was announced on March the 12th, to overwhelming community reception.
The new preview show the 8X taking flight, looking as though the exterior modelling is almost complete.
Here's the feature list as of the announcement:
- Precise flight model built and tweaked by Cameron Garner (X-Aerodynamics), complemented by custom-coded FBW and protections, all validated by certified Falcon 8X pilot and in compliance with expected performance.
- Exact model based on original blueprints provided by Dassault Aviation, with high resolution PBR textures (Physically Based Rendering). Fully functional cockpit with smoothly animated buttons and switches. External animations include passenger and cargo doors, RAT (Ram Air Turbine) and GPU socket, in addition to all moving surfaces, and including wingflex.
- Cabin modeled according to Dassault Aviation standard configuration, with optional very high resolution model for static display purposes*. Official house livery from Dassault Aviation, with plans for some extra fictional liveries.
- High resolution EASy III avionics (without options) with pop-up screens. Simulated PFDs and MFDs with reversion*, custom FMS, at or close to study-level simulation of electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic systems and synoptics. Custom failures are planed for a post-release update.
- Precise sound modeling and effects by Daniela Rodríguez Careri, based on samples taken from real aircraft, courtesy Dassault Aviation.
Threshold encourages informed discussion and debate - though this can only happen if all commenters remain civil when voicing their opinions.
