Tie downs available to main rotor blades
Caps for turbine inlet, outlet and pitot
Fully articulated 3D rotor and Blade flex
GPU (Ground Power Unit) available
Pedal stop simulation, the equipment that reduces left pedal authority above 50kts, don't fly without it and push all left pedal, or you'll have troubles!
Transmission limit simulation, don't push it too far or you can break the transmission
Removable rotor shadows - Low and High skids options
Arcade mode is available for beginners
Pitch, Roll and Yaw augmented stability uses own algorithm for improved behavior
New Rigid cruise feature, allow the stability to progressively increase from hover to cruise, allowing longer flights without need of keep fighting with controls all the flight, while keeping the hover challenge intact.
Clickable external areas for increased interactivity
You can enter inside of helicopter by clicking on doors
Refuel the helicopter by clicking on the fuel inlet, a pie slider make it very easy

Custom sounds for switches, buttons and circuit breakers
Realistic exterior and interior sounds - Simulation of all the Horns
Conclusion by XPlanereviews.com: "The latest creation from Dreamfoil is their Bell 407. Dreamfoil Creations have got quite a track record in producing really brilliant helicopters and the Bell 407 is no exception. Their Jetranger Bell 206 B3 was excellent and the Eurocopter AS350 B3 was a level above in design and features, and here in the 407 you are flying with a master at work."
Conclusion by Aerosoft Sim News (asn.aerosoft.com ): "...The external model is indeed impressive and many tiny details are included and I'm sure that I haven’t found them all. This is also applicable for the 3D cockpit. It's lucky that the real cockpit isn’t complicated, still, even in this small area, DreamFoil Creations managed to add very many tiny details. The end result makes it a pleasure to fly this small Bell helicopter. What to say about the flight dynamics or characteristics? I may assume that these are tested with real Bell pilots. I’m not a real helicopter pilot. I only have a frozen FAA PPL so for me it’s difficult to judge how realistically it flies. I'm sure that DreamFoil Creations let real Bell 407 pilots test this add-on XP10 helicopter and based on their findings, the flight dynamics are accordingly adjusted to meet, as closely as possible, real flight characteristics. I'm very pleased with the amount of liveries added to the packages. They're very nice and together with the white “paint kit”, painters can paint their favorite Bell 407. I missed the NML files, but Alfredo had a good reason for not adding them. Another reason of not adding NML files is the frame rate impact. Speaking of frame rates, I think this add-on Bell 407 will run on many computer systems, although I have to admit that I only tested it with the Mac OSX Mavericks systems on both an iMac Late 2013 and a Late 2013 Mac Book Pro. Both are high-end systems, so it’s difficult for me to say it can’t run on a particular system. Remember, the instruments, including the default Garmin 430 aren’t using many resources. Let’s put it this way, they use less resources than a helicopter with EFIS, and FMS, EICAs or ECAM systems. Overall, this is a great helicopter, assuming you like to fly helicopters..."
