De Havilland Canada DHC2 Beaver (on floats with retracts)
File Description: IBM PC VERSION ONLY. This file contains DLL's that are not Mac. compatible.
A total of over 1500 aircraft were built. With double slotted full span flaps (drooping ailerons) and 1000lbs payload, its STOL capability, along with having a float version with retracts, made it an ideal "Bushplane" with unparalelled performance from any contempory aircraft. Many Beavers are still in use today.
The model was built using Truespace 4.3 and Chris Wallace's 3ds to S3d converter. Photorealistic interior views are used with auto switching day-time/night-time main panel.
The model requires that you have the Tri default aircraft installed.
A few non-standard features have been included to improve the ease of operation.
1. nose wheel steering (the original uses differential braking and castoring nose gears)
2. an electric pump for hydraulics (optional on the original )
3. a simple GPS that can be slaved to the auto pilot. (unheard of during the production life of the original but very likely to be found on any survivng present day aircraft.
4. a transponder has been added to enable IFR flights
