This exceptional model of Cessna 208 Grand Caravan is part of Thranda "Dynamic Generation Series" - more about the DGS Series here.

Two models in one package for X-Plane 12 & 11:

  • C208 Caravan 675
  • C208 Grand Caravan
  • Both planes come with passenger and cargo versions

Free Expansion Pack included to the C208:

  • New Seaplane versions of the Caravan 675 and Grand Caravan, including plain floats and amphibious floats
  • New: G1000 as an option in the dynamic panel, including optional synthetic vision system
  • Additional options to the landplane: Tundra tires, mud guards, seating presets, toggleable cargo version

Special features:

  • FULLY configurable 3D instrument panel
  • Over 50 instruments to choose from (Including Aspen EFD 1000, and support for RealityXP GTN750)
  • Move any instrument to any location on the panel, or even between pilot and copilot's panel
  • Comes with 4 panel presets, but can easily be expanded by moving instruments around, using a simple and intuitive interface
  • Save your own presets, and even share them with the community
  • Instruments can be moved in 3D directly, on a 2D pop-up preview window, or by numerical entry for precise placement
  • Realistic custom fuel system
  • GNS430 and 530 can be swapped out, but a restart of the plane is required, as 430s and 530s are mutually exclusive in terms of compatibility in X-Plane
  • Dynamic livery editor (like in the Kodiak, the Beaver, the Wilga, and the Pilatus PC-6)
  • Full PBR control! Create stunning metallic liveries, or matte, sand-blasted look in mere seconds
  • Additional control over dirt/grime, adjustable in real-time to dial in the exact desired amount of wear and tear
  • Create "virtual" liveries, based on two basic common design layouts, and assign any colour to any available paint segment
  • Quickly create preview of livery in real-time, using intuitive controls (previews now include visualization of metallic materials and dirt overlays)
  • Apply selected livery in real-time, right in the sim, without the need to even touch a 3rd party image editor
  • Option to change the tail number in real-time, or disable it altogether (enter a "space" instead of a callsign number to create a blank tail number)
  • Easily and quickly create dozens of paint schemes in-sim
  • Also supports 11 traditionally painted liveries, all visible in a convenient pre-selection preview window
  • Uses SkunkCrafts Updater.  Option to participate in Beta program, via check box in SkunkCrafts Updater
  • Excellent hi-res PBR realistic materials, featuring true-to-life plate deformation and to-the-rivet precision
  • Fully modelled Pratt ^ Whitney PT6A-114A turboprop engine
  • Rain support
  • Glass parts done in 8k textures

Feature-rich elegant fly-out menu with the following features:

  • Realism settings for engine (simplified vs. realistic modes)
  • Custom ITT logic, to get the startup ITT temperature right
  • Innovative electric tug, with in-panel controls to move forward/backward at the desired speed, and steer proportionally
  • Control over chocks, individual tie-downs, covers, internal lights, external lights, etc.
  • Option to enable/disable Cargo Pod, with realistically simulated weight, momentum, rotational inertia, and drag characteristics
  • Individually load weights in different sections of the Cargo Pod via the pop-up menu
  • Option to start up running (all systems ready), or cold-and-dark, for realistic startup procedures
  • Control landing lights, strobes, beacon, and nav lights via pop-up window
  • Detailed weight and balance manager with visual chart, individual passenger seat weight control, Lbs/KG unit toggle, CG control, external tank control, and the option to save and load configuration
  • Control individual seat positions, or hide them altogether, to create a hybrid passenger/cargo version
  • Multiple camera snap points, above and beyond what's available by default in X-Plane, so you can perform your walk around checks
  • Adjust your camera's Field of View without having to go to an X-plane menu, allowing for real-time adjustments
  • Audio mixer: individually control audio channels in real-time, so you can adjust volumes while hearing them play
  • Slew control: move your plane around the world, temporarily bypassing flight physics.  Includes ground mode and air mode
  • Dynamic panel control page, with a separate view for the entire panel layout preview, or a per-instrument view, allowing for fine-tuning of instrument position, as well as copy-paste function to quickly replace instruments

Flight dynamics and systems:

  • Detailed and accurate flight dynamics and weight and balance with the help of multiple real-world active Caravan pilots
  • Easy to fly, but extremely capable! The Caravan is a well-behaved airplane and a very stable IFR platform equally comfortable at the world's busiest airports as well as back country dirt strips)
  • Detailed fuel system, including the small reservoir tank and the fuel selector warning alarms
  • Extensively simulated electrical system, including the battery, avionics busses, generator, starter, external power, and standby alternator system
  • Tie-downs and chocks actually keep the plane from moving, even in high winds

Advanced FMOD-based sound system:

  • High fidelity, multi-track sounds with smooth transitions and amazing atmospheric effects
  • Individual volume control over different aspects of the sound experience, adjustable in real-time (while listening to the sounds)
  • Different sounds for front of plane than for back of plane
  • Panning around the plane in exterior view yields awesome 3D audio effects, including "blade slapping" sound when view is perpendicular to prop
  • Individual buttons and switches in the cockpit each have their own unique sound
  • Sounds actually give you clues as to what's happening under the hood
  • Outside wind intensity is affected by slip and AoA. (The more the surface area of the fuselage is hit by oncoming wind, the louder the sounds

Reviews:

Fazit aus dem FS Magazin 6-2022:
"Thranda ist mit den Caravans ein sehr schönes Paket gelungen. [..] Per integriertem Expansion Pack lässt sich zwischen einer analogen Instrumentierung und einem G1000 wählen.

In beiden Varianten lassen sich die Flugzeuge nach Sichtflug- sowie nach IFR-Regeln entlang von Airways, SIDs und STARs fliegen. Damit wird die Anbindung abgelegener Flugplätze an die „Zivilisation“ simuliert. Wasserflugplätze sind dank der Amphibien-Version kein Problem. Der Preis ist in Anbetracht des gebotenen Umfangs als fair zu bewerten. Die Caravan hat in der Summe den Tipp der Redaktion verdient!"

Fazit von X-Plained.com:
"[..] Despite the presence of three other Caravan models, this Caravan package is a must buy if you enjoy flying work horse turboprops. There is none better available for X-Plane 11 and this will likely be the only one that gets optimized for the upcoming X-Plane 12. The systems that Thranda has incorporated in this package bring it to a near “study level” flight experience."
