The Diamond DA50 RG is relatively new to general aviation in the real world and X-Plane aircraft maker Aerobask have jumped on this latest Diamond aircraft to offer what looks like yet another impressive aircraft release for X-Plane 11… and 12.
On sale now
Building on the Aerobask DA62, this single engine version of the popular two engine aircraft in X-Plane 11, comes with a bunch of expected and unexpected features. High quality 3D model, 4K PBR textures, flight model by X-Aerodynamics, Enhanced version of the Laminar X1000/G1000 with custom EIS, annunciations, and touch screen features. There’s also configurable pilots, passengers, luggage, and FMOD sounds by now legendary sound artist Daniela Rodriguez Careri.
These are all expected features from Aerobask, however, the unexpected features include wingflex (a first for GA aircraft in X-Plane to my knowledge), as well as support for some X-Plane 12 features that is currently not available but will be for the new sim. Those features include windshield effects like rain and frost and visual icing on the wings. Cool!
