VSKYLABS VBR-3 Project
(for X-Plane 10.45+)


*** SORRY, BUT THIS AIRCRAFT IS UNDER UPDATE ***

Scroll down to read information and flying tips for X-Plane

Main project features:
  • Highly detailed, animated 3D model.
  • High-Res 4096x4096 textures, Ambient occlusion, Specular and Normal mapping. 
  • Great handling and flying characteristics, cooool Knife-Edge capability :)
  • Great sounds.


"Gee Bees" were some of the most successful airplanes of the Golden Age of air-racing during the 20s and 30s. Using gigantic engines they were build for speed.

The R3 is an upgraded racing version of the Gee Bee types R1 and R2, but it exists only on the drawing boards. This aircraft is alive mostly in the Radio Control model airplanes community, having it's designs flying from control-line to giant scale models.


I have decided to bring the R3 concept to full-size in X-Plane flight simulator. This project will include sport aircraft and variations, inspired by the R3 design. 

The first variation in this package is the reciprocating sport plane, the VBR-3.

Here are some specifications:

Crew: 1
Length: 32 ft 
Wingspan: 36 ft  
Height: 12 ft  
Empty weight: 1930 lbs
Max. takeoff weight: 3350 lbs
Powerplant:  830 hp
Maximum speed: 300 knots 
Stall speed: 65 knots





Flying tips for X-Plane:

  • Use 65-95 degrees Field-Of-View setting (in 'rendering options').
  • Don't forget to release brakes before taxiing.
  • Its a fixed propeller, no Flaps aircraft, just hop in and you are ready to Rock n Roll!
  • Keep your speed on final, touchdown below 80 knots.
  • Knife Edges, inverted loops and inverted flight are mostly recommended !!!
