X-Plane - Latest Info and Details
X-Plane is a flight simulator for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows by Laminar Research. X-Plane is packaged with other software to build and customize aircraft and scenery, offering a complete flight simulation environment. X-Plane also has a plugin architecture that allows users to create their own modules and aircraft, extending the functionality of the software by letting users create their own worlds or replicas of places on earth.

It comes with five scenery disks, and one with scenery and the actual simulator. It allows flight from -70 degrees south to 74 degrees north. Switching the planet to Mars is an option that comes with the game, and although the air is thin, flight is possible.
X-Plane differentiates itself by implementing an aerodynamic model known as blade element theory. Traditionally, flight simulators try to emulate the real-world performance of an aircraft by using lookup tables to find known aerodynamic forces such as lift or drag, which vary with flight condition. These simulators do a good job of simulating the flight characteristics of the aircraft they were designed to simulate (those with known aerodynamic data), but are not useful in design work, and do not predict the performance of aircraft when the actual figures are not available.
Blade-element theory is one method of improving on this. It is a way of modeling the forces and moments on an aircraft by individually evaluating the parts that constitute it. Blade-element theory and other computational aerodynamic models can be used to compute aerodynamic forces in real time or to pre-compute aerodynamic forces of a new design for later use in a traditional lookup table type of simulator.
With Blade-element theory, a wing, for example, may be made up of many sections (1 to 4 is typical), and each section is further divided into as many as 10 separate sections, then the lift and drag of each section is calculated, and the resulting effect is applied to the whole aircraft. When this process is applied to each component, the simulated aircraft will fly virtually like its real counterpart does. This approach allows users to design aircraft on their computer quickly and easily, as the simulator engine will show immediately how an aircraft with a given design might perform in the real world.
X-Plane can model fairly complex aircraft designs, including helicopters, rockets, rotor craft and tilt-rotor craft. Famous real-world aircraft modeled in X-Plane include the V-22 Osprey, the Harrier Jump Jet, the NASA Space Shuttle, and Scaled Composites SpaceShipOne.
Blade element theory has shortcomings, as it can sometimes be difficult to design an aircraft that performs precisely as would real-world aircraft. However, as the flight model is refined, the simulator can better resemble real-world performance, and aircraft quirks and design flaws.
Dc 3 X-plane 11
Leading Edge Simuations, also known as LES, has recently announced a new version of Douglas DC-3 rendition for X-Plane 11. The announcement was made by Cameron, founder of X-Aviation, via the X-Pilot forums. The version 2 of the aircraft will be a significant update in comparison with version 1.
The developers will aim for more realistic systems plus better texturing and modelling. It was mentioned in the post, that current owners of the DC-3 v1 will get a special upgrade discount, but no specific values were shared just yet.
When released, the aircraft will feature, for example, a complete FMOD sound package by AudioBirdXP, custom effects such as exhaust smoke and heat blur, complete simulation of all aircraft systems or accurate flight characterisctics and engine performance. As usual, the complete feature list can be found below.
