Fans of X-Plane 11 should really get to know Thranda, a developer for the sim, who have contributed some excellent and sometimes quirky or lesser known aircraft to the immense collection of types available in X-Plane. Now, they’re covering a legend and they have put their full effort into it.
Bushplane with features
DeHaviland Canada’s Beaver is one of the original bush planes. Tough as nails, reliable, and still flying after 73-years, the Beaver is a true legend in the history of aircraft. Now, this version of the aircraft for X-Plane 11 is available from a notable developer that has really put some extra effort into this aircraft.
Among the features are 4k PBR texturing, customizable liveries on the fly, customizable 3D cockpit with different layouts, customizable options such as skis, mudflaps, floats, and a detailed FMOD sound system. This last point is actually really interesting because Thranda have built a detailed model of the DHC-2’s Pratt & Whitney R-985 Wasp Jr radial engine and then procedurally built the sound that the engine generates based on how it works in the sim. Very cool! It’s part of what Thranda are calling their “Dynamic Generation Series” and its something they are rolling out across all of their released modules.
If this aircraft is anything like their past efforts, X-Plane fans should be in for a real treat here
