Aircraft Notes & Recommended Aircraft

From FlyInside Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This page will list the aircraft add-ons that have been tested with FlyInside. The list states how well the aircraft work, as far as control is concerned, as well as how the cockpit looks. The latter is, of course, subjective, and a model having a VC which doesn't look that great but works in FlyInside might still be worth flying. It's a personal thing, subject to what the virtual pilot finds acceptable. Some cockpits require scale adjustment in FlyInside, to look more realistic.

The first list will consist only of paid add-ons (payware), listed alphabetically according to publisher, the second list contains freeware models listed alphabetically by aircraft manufacturer. Please bear in mind that these comments are in regard to how the models look and work in Virtual Reality only.

*Due to the large number of freeware aircraft models available, only models that have been tested and work in FlyInside will be listed, some may have 2D panels
