3D Modeling:

We have worked on the interior main panel of the M20R. The aircraft will feature the X-Plane GNS 530 & GNS 430. We are also working with RealityXP to implement their Garmin GTN 750 & GTN 650 into the aircraft*.

Systems Programming:

The code for the systems is also progressing. A large majority of our efforts, as of current, have gone into the electrical system. The system will be a highly advanced recreation of the real electrical system. Our advanced plugin will provide a “study level” simulation of the aircraft.


Flight Model:

Our advanced flight model is nearing its final stages of development. The model will then go through thousands of rigorous tests to ensure accuracy. Once it is complemented with a plugin based engine model, the aircraft will behave highly realistically.


Current Plans for X-Plane 11:

With Laminar Research nearing the release of X-Plane 11, we will be developing the M20R for XP11. The X-Plane 11 version of the M20R will have features such as PBR, Improved GNS530 / GNS430, improved FMOD sound, and more!


Sounds:

We are in the process of acquiring, processing, and optimizing high-quality sounds.


Release Timeframe:

We are aiming to finalize development, and enter beta in Q1 2017. The release will then targeted in Q2 2017. Although these dates are estimates, and delays are possible.
