Default Professionally produced RV-7 for X-Plane

Looks like you folks are going to be getting a (hopefully) well-made RV-7 for X-Plane 11 soon.

https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php...-aircraft-rv7/

I was looking around for an RV-8 and found this. No idea when it will arrive though. Last post was a month ago.

Default Panel Builder?

Sweet, can we install panel elements like our real plane? It would be great for some IFR practice. And . . . some aerobatics too!!

Thumbs up

Interesting. What would be neat too is if you can do your own paint schemes? Could be an amazing visualization tool. Anyone know how hard it is to do your own paint in xplane?

Having a virtual RV professionally built is clearly in violation of the virtual FAA regs governing homebuilt aircraft.

</sarcasm> tag just in case...

This is cool; I'll probably buy it when it's released.

Well. It could be that you will need to write 51% code to finish it off

Default Paint

FSX (Flight Sim 10)/ P3D allows you to create your own liveries, but I'm not sure about X-Plane. 10 years ago, that's how I did development on my own paint scheme, worked great, but it did take some skills with photoshop and knowing the process for textures on 3D models.

Alright, sorry for the side track guys, but I gotta ask because I am an older guy that never had a computer until about 15 years ago and never had video games.

That said, is Xplane worth while as a flight sim for different scenarios or just for gaming fun? I would like to be able to practice some things in a sim for the cost benefit, but I know nothing on what you need for equipment, or if is even worth it. If it is just a game, then I would probably pass. If it is realistic flight sim without movement, and there are gains to be had as a pilot then I would be very interested. I am interested just because there is an RV7.


Help a guy out and let me know what it should cost to set one up what I need to get going. Or let me know why I should just pass.

Thanks, Ben
