VSKYLABS 'Twin Racer 007'

VSKYLABS 'Twin-Racer 007' Full scale racing airplane Add-on for X-Plane 10.36+
(Based on the DH.88 Comet)


Recommended Field of View setup is 65 to 95 degrees

3D Cockpit is animated and straight forward, with all the needed instruments and 3D switches for fun-fly operations, including an 'F-O-V' button to change the field of view settings and a 'SERVICE' button to open the canopy and hatches. Two rheostats are located on top the from panel for instruments and flood lights.

This project features:

  • High quality, fully animated 3D design.
  • 3D cockpit with sun-glaring glass canopy.
  • Open the canopy and service hatches from the cockpit.
  • Realistic sounds.
  • Performance and handling are realistic (and simple).
  • Free future updates of this amazing, evolving airplane.

The aircraft is a good performer, with specifications and performance which are similar to the DH.88 Comet airplane.

Power plant: 2 × 230 hp engines

General performance:
Maximum speed: ~190 knots
Cruise speed: ~160 knots
Stall speed: ~60 knots


  1. Has this flyer also an old GNS? The cockpit images are often too dark and very small, to identify the type. Aware?

    1. You referred 'old GPS' - than yes. an old one. In the next update I'll replace it with the X-Plane's pop-up advanced GPS.

  2. Hi JetMan,
    it would be great if you make a better 3d cockpit, similar to that of the historical airplane. The simple one you made works quite well, but looks so-so, contrasting with the external lines of the airplane which are very good and accurate.
    Anyway, the plane flies well, the price is low and I like it

    1. Hi Auris.
      Thanks for your comment.
      I do have plans to update the cockpit so it will be more authentic. Of course it will be a free update, as well as an additional color scheme, the red and white one.

      Thanks again :)

  3. Im very sad because its not working in XP 9, but it looks great! 5/5 stars from me!

    1. Thanks, Pilotman55 !

      I'm sorry for that. Maybe in the future I'll make V9 versions...
      Will let you know if or when it will happen!

    1. Thank you very much, Spaceriot!
      I have plans to update this airplane in the future, including a DH.88 color scheme and a brand new cockpit :)

  5. Oh I am looking forward to that! :)

  6. JetManHuss, did you ever get around to update the plane?

    1. Hi Spaceriot!
      Yes, this plane is to get update. The potential of this aircraft for further growth is huge and It will happen not too far in the future. Main focus would be on 3D cockpit.

  7. Please, go forward updating it for xp11!
