Product information "Cessna 208 Grand Caravan - DGS Series XP"

This exceptional model is part of Thranda's "Dynamic Generation Series" and included two models in one product:

  • C208 Caravan 675
  • C208 Grand Caravan

Both planes come with passenger and cargo versions.

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

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

Reviews:

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."
