Product information "X-Plane.org - DHC-2 Beaver - DGS Series XP11"

The DHC-2 Beaver is one of the most popular aircraft in aviation history. First produced in 1948 it is still flown today in rugged parts of the world where the DHC-2's bush flying capabilities can shine. This model by Thranda is part of the "Dynamic Generation Series" (here you find more details about the DGS Series).

Special features:

  • NEW: Regular Tires, Tundra Tires, Skis,  Floats and Amphibious floats
  • NEW: Skim over water with tundra tires (Plugin controlled)
  • 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 6 panel presets, but can easily be expanded by moving instruments around, using 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
  • Intricate, realistic fuel tank system, featuring tip tanks and removable belly tank. Overflow logic when transferring too much fuel from other tanks to primary tanks
  • 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 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, scratches/nicks, adjustable in real-time to dial in the exact desired amount of wear and tear. Affects airspeed. Clean plane will fly 2-3 MPH faster
  • Create "virtual" liveries, based on one common design layout, 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 include/hide manufacturer logo on tail, and control its colour
  • 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 12 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

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

  • Realism settings for engine and tail wheel (simplified vs. realistic modes)
  • Radial engine visualization in pop-up window, which showcases the inner workings of the engine
  • Real-time primer and pre-heat logic, with visualization indicating correct priming range
  • 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 Belly Tank, with realistically simulated weight, momentum, rotational inertia, and drag characteristics
  • Option to start up running (all systems ready), or cold-and-dark, for realistic startup procedures
  • Option to run engine in a simplified manner (no pre-heat, no priming, easier starts)
  • 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
  • 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
  • The "Misc" page in the fly-out window contains options to customize the plane, such as:
    • Skis
    • Tundra tires
    • Mud flaps
    • Bubble windows
    • Throttle quadrant model (choose between classic and new design)

Flight dynamics and systems:

  • The Beaver has unique flight dynamics, characterized by being a "flap-happy" plane. This is faithfully reproduced in the sim version (Can require slight flap extension during cruise, depending on conditions)
  • The Beaver is the quintessential Canadian classic STOL workhorse, whose flight characteristics and excellent STOL capabilities are calibrated to maximum precision in the sim
  •  Details, such as the wobble pump, the ratcheting carb heat lever, the manually pumped flap system (with direction valve), and the primer system are faithfully modelled for maximum immersion
  • Tie-downs and chocks actually keep the plane from moving, even in high winds

Advanced FMOD-based sound system:

  • Pioneer in procedural engine sounds. (No two starts sound alike: coughing, sputtering, and clanking valves all contribute to a nuanced, rich, immersive sound experience)
  • 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
