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. This not only gives this aircraft the proper "feel", but also accurate takeoff, climb, cruise, and landing performance.
The Caravan is a well-behaved airplane and a very stable IFR platform. Easy to fly, but extremely capable! The Caravan is 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
Conclusion by 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."
