View Full Version : Hughes XF-11 in FSX

Ok Gang. Since I couldn't find a video of XF-11 on YouTube I went and made one. Model is by Ian Lawrence. Shown are the Classic Wings version by Craig Richardson and the R-11A Aero Union paints (both by '3/7charlie'). P&W sound by Frederic Bourmaut (incredible sound). My dynamics. Flys 40Kft with ease and control at (up to) Mach 1.1 (why not).
For the R-11A props you can sub 'prop' and 'prop1' textures from base pack for them to look good in FSX (otherwise they show solid). Enjoy.
That's a deep rumbling sound from those engines. Sounds like one from a bomber like the old B-17. And that plane sure turns on a dime. :eek:

Yes sir-ee Bob! It is the best out there, as far as I can see (hear?). It 'stimulates' my wall heater to where the thermostat cycles the flame on/off at 44 Kb/sec (hehe). Not to speak of the apartment walls (1950's construction) still flexing and cracking 30 minutes after I turn sim off (ha).
Bourmaut made the 'P&W sound for twin engines' sound for the XF-11 (but not the 4 engine Brequet, which he said 'was a (pleasant) surprise', when he watched that video). As you may know, the MODEL has SOME effect on the sound (how, I really don't know) but it does. I lucked out with this one. The smile hasn't rubbed off my face yet (maybe never will). Incredible sound.
You liked the 'doughnuts' eh? Threw that in for the heck of it. Again, the model, and not just the contact points, will have to be credited for the handling. The dynamics are not perfect, yet. Will work on yaw, de-ice, etc 'next tuesday'. Burned out now. Cheers.
