A new aircraft from Thranda Design for X-Plane 12 is sure to grab some attention as their Cessna 337 Skymaster in their Dynamic Generation Series (DGS) is now out and available for purchase. Let’s have a look.
Twin engine Cessna
Thranda have tackled some interesting aircraft over the last several years of developing new aircraft for the X-Plane series and the Cessna 337 Skymaster is no exception. This pusher-puller twin engine aircraft hails from the late 1960s and early 1970s. The aircraft, as simulated by Thranda, is powered by a pair of 210 hp (at 2800 RPM) Continental IO-360-C engines, giving it good performance and twin engine capability but with a unique configuration rarely seen.
Thranda have built this aircraft in their Dynamic Generation Series (DGS) which means that the instrument panels are configurable with over 50 different instruments to choose from including the Aspen EFD 1000 and support for RealityXP 650 and GTN750. There’s a dynamic livery generator with a huge amount of customization, control over PBR materials, dirt and scratches, and more. Plus there are 9 liveries available if you don’t want to customize your own.
The aircraft also sports the usual range of FMOD sounds (including unique and individual sounds for each switch and button), a customizable menu system, and more. Thranda really do pack in the features on their aircraft.
