• Review: Mad Flight Studio - Spectr-Aero SP-30

    Being that the Spectr-Aero SP-30 is not the prettiest plane on the field, you might be tempted to not give it a look. But that would be a big mistake. Designer Mad Flight Studio has created what may well be the most detailed light aircraft ever made by X-Plane. It has the accurate flight model and 3D details you'd expect, but goes way beyond that with features that include aircraft maintenance, walk-around inspection, optional crop-dusting equipment and much more. You'll need to read Stuart McGregor's review to the end to learn about it all.

    Freeware Focus: Ford Tri-Motor Project

    After trying, over the years, all the flight simulators from FS2000 to Prepar3D, Robin Meyerowitz found that immersion is more important than realism and that FS2004 suited that need for him. To aid that, he discovered the Ford Tri-Motor Project put together by Garry J. Smith and Edward C. Moore. As he describes, the project is even more than just the history of the famous Tri-Motor but provides a variety of period resources to aid in that flightsim immersion.
