This all-new DR400 for X-Plane 11 has been modelled by Just Flight’s in-house development team, in partnership with Thranda Design, to the same exceptional quality as all the recent Just Flight aircraft, but they are making it available to you at this permanent special low price by way of a seasonal thank you for all your support and your custom over the last few years!
Following on from their PA-28 series, C152 and PA-38 Tomahawk, this highly detailed simulation of the Robin DR400-180 Regent was developed by Just Flight's in-house team and Thranda Design following comprehensive, hands-on research with a real-life DR400, G-BEUP, based at Goodwood Aerodrome with SportAir.
The DR400 is a wooden monoplane, first flown in 1972 and still in production in France as the latest DR401. This four-seat, piston-engine aircraft is equipped with fixed tricycle landing gear, a 180 HP four-cylinder engine and a large forward-sliding canopy.
The aircraft features a distinctive cranked wing design and sliding canopy, giving it a unique appearance among GA aircraft and excellent cruise performance. It is fitted with an auxiliary fuel tank for a total capacity of 240 litres, providing great range.
The DR400’s excellent visibility, payload capabilities and 130-knot cruise speed make it an ideal aircraft for touring and flight training.
Moving into the cockpit, the aircraft features a comprehensive suite of IFR-capable avionics including a GMA 340 audio selector, GNS 430 GPS unit, KY 97 COM 2 radio, KN 64 DME, GTX 330 transponder, KR 85 ADF and S-TEC 55 autopilot.
The Robin DR400 for X-Plane 11 features PBR materials with real-time environment reflections for superb quality and realism, HD textures for the highest possible texture clarity and realistic systems functionality.
Accurately modelled Robin DR400-180 Regent, built using real-world aircraft plans and comprehensive photography of the real aircraft
Numerous animations including sliding canopy, luggage door and engine exhausts
Realistic modelling and texturing of the distinctive cranked wings
Ground equipment including chocks and tie-downs
4096x4096 textures are used to produce the highest possible texture clarity
PBR (Physically Based Rendering) materials with real-time environment reflections for superb quality and realism
Detailed normal mapping for down-to-the-rivet precision of aircraft features
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
Dimmable cockpit lighting
Interactive engine start checklist that responds to user inputs and sim variables
Interactive checklists for every stage of flight
Panel state system which will automatically save the panel state whenever a flight is saved and reload the panel state whenever that flight is loaded
Aircraft configuration system that will allow you to choose between 'cold & dark' or 'ready for take-off'
Fully functional and comprehensive IFR-capable avionics fit: - GMA 340 audio selector - GNS 430 GPS unit - KY 97 COM 2 radio - KN 64 DME - GTX 330 transponder - KR 85 ADF - S-TEC 55 autopilot
Flight Computer panel with useful information such as fuel burn, endurance, speed and wind speed/direction
Interactive logbook panel for logging your flight details (X-Plane native)
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
Radio knob animations routed through plugin logic, for optimum movement fidelity and sound synchronisation
Custom-coded fuel system, including the option of automatic fuel tank switching for use on those long-distance cross-country flights (this option is remembered for future flights)
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
Functioning carburettor and auxiliary fuel tank transfer 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
Custom external light logic with custom strobe light pattern and custom light halos for added realism
The DR400 is supplied in the following ten paint schemes:
