VSKYLABS 'RC Legends' - Giant Twins


VSKYLABS 'Scratch-Built RC Legends'
Professional RC simulation add-on for X-Plane flight simulator


Highly accurate and professionally tuned
radio-controlled model airplanes add-on simulation for
X-Plane 10 Flight Simulator.

This 'Giant Twins' Package contains these 3 items:
de Havilland DH.88 (X-Plane 10.31+)
Lockheed P-38 Lightning (X-Plane 10.36+)
VSKYLABS 'RC-City' flying site (X-Plane 10.31+)




SCROLL DOWN FOR PACKAGE INFORMATION AND INSTALLATION NOTES

The DH.88 and the P-38 are Giant-Scale RC models,
but can be flown from the cockpit's view as full-scale airplanes,
with flight performance similar to some micro-light airplanes.

de Havilland DH.88
  • Giant scale RC model (~3/4 scale) of the de Havilland DH.88 racing aircraft. 
  • wingspan of ~ 3.2 meters / 126"
  • Powered by 2 x 160 2 stroke / 2 x 200 4 stroke engines.
  • Weight is ~ 46lbs.
  • Flight tested and carefully tuned to meet RC pilots highest standard.
  • Highly detailed exterior and interior structure with animated hatches, canopy, servos, GoPro camera and FPV system objects, retractable gears, flaps, ailerons, elevator, rudder, spinners, Smart Phone display and cockpit lights for FPV night operations.
  • FPV view is set up behind the canopy for easy first-person flying and operations.
  • Custom engine sound sampled from real RC engines.
  • Quick operation panel for quick and easy start-up, flight reset and open hatches (located inside the cockpit, on the left side).
Lockheed P-38 Lightning
  • Giant scale RC model of the Lockheed P-38 Lightning.
  • wingspan of ~ 3.1 meters / 123"
  • Powered by 2 x 4.5 hp engines (counter rotating).
  • Weight is ~ 48lbs.
  • Flight tested and carefully tuned to meet RC pilots highest standard.
  • Highly detailed exterior and interior structure with animated hatches, canopy, GoPro camera and FPV system objects, retractable gears, Fowler flaps, ailerons, elevator, rudders, spinners and Smart Phone display.
  • FPV view is set up in the tail section for easy first-person flying and operations.
  • Custom engine sound sampled from real RC engines.
  • Quick operation panel for quick and easy start-up, flight reset and open hatches (located on the Smart Phone).
VSKYLABS 'RC-City' flying site
  • An interactive RC airfield - the objects in the environment are physically existing, so the airplane can collide and interact with them (antenna's, cars, ski-jump ramps, pylons, fences etc.).
  • The objects are arranged carefully in the flying area to give the RC pilot "clues" about depth perception for flying.
  • Pilot position is well thought of and placed as a setup (tower view: 'Shift' + '5') at the right spot and elevation for best RC flying experience.
  • In addition to runways there are two large and wide ski-ramps, three giant pylons, one concrete obstacle to fly through. The ski-ramps can be used with full scale airplanes of X-Plane, to raise the fun factor :)

General installation instructions:

Installation instructions - Aircraft:
  1. Unpack the .zip package into your desktop or any other place.
  2. Inside the unpacked folder you'll find 3 folders (dh88, P-38, RC runway).
  3. Copy/Move the P-38 and DH.88 folders into X-Plane's 'Aircraft' directory.
    Note: It is recommended to create a folder named 'VSKYLABS RC Models' inside the 'Aircraft' folder and place these files and future VSKYLABS RC Models inside this folder.
  4. After starting X-Plane, locate this folder and choose your desired model.
Installation instructions - RC runway Scenery:
  1. Inside the unpacked .zip package, there is a folder of the runway (besides the two airplanes folders).
  2. Locate the folder of the 'RC-City' runway inside it.
  3. Copy/Move the 'RC-City' runway folder into X-Plane's 'Custom scenery' folder.
  4. After starting X-Plane, select global airport: 'RCC1'.
General operations:
  1. You can start up the engines by pressing the 'start' button in the cockpit/smartphone.
  2. You can reset your flight by pressing the reset button in the cockpit/smartphone.
  3. You can open the hatches of the model by extracting the speed-brakes or by pressing the service button in the cockpit/smart phone. Opened hatches does not affect the flight model.
  4. If you use the 'RC-City' runway, selecting the Tower-View ('shift'+'5'), you'll be set-up in the pilot's remote view point, which is by the runway and at humans height.
  5. You can use any other X-Plane feature to adjust the simulator as you wish (weather, time of day etc.).
  6. It is recommended to set the flight model for maximum realism, and the field of view to 65 degrees when flying in-cockpit FPV, and 25 degrees when flying from external point-of-view. Use the zoom as flight condition requires.
  7. It is recommended to use transmitter type controller for maximum realism. (RC USB controllers for example).

It is extremely recommended to use transmitter type controller for maximum realism.
I also recommend to setup X-Plane for maximum realistic flight-model. 

More screenshots, videos and simulation information can be found by exploring the
'SCRATCH-BUILT RC LEGENDS' section in the right side bar of this website.
Notice that the 'Giant-Twins' package contains only the DH.88 and + P-38  + RC-City scenery. 
Future packages will feature many more legendary scratch-built RC legends.
