Take a step into the world of tomorrow, how planes might look, what fuels they might use, how they might handle and feel, what features they might have. Discover the world not yet seen.

Lionheart Creations offers a unique concept aircraft in the form of the "Blade". Using an electric motor and rechargeable batteries powered by solar energy, the Blade concept may be something we see in aircraft of the future. It certainly looks futuristic! This package is low cost and available to download now from PC Aviator.

Blade is a design project that looks at the possibilities of electric propulsion using modern day technologies, combining Tesla Automobile motors and batteries, newer versions of BMW pathways for less expensive manufacture of carbon fiber components, and using modern, simplistic, yet beautiful operating software systems to produce amazing instrument panels with colorful and imaginative layouts and designs.

INTERIOR
The part of an aircraft one will always spend the most of ones time at is in the interior, at the instrument panel. With the Blade, a direction was taken that parallels the latest automotive luxury cars, an interior that would feature the latest automotive climate control system, an autopilot that would have quick lock program features, leather abounding all througout the cabin, and beautiful immitation wood veneer that would be color matched with each interior theme package. Some new features in this plane that are rare are 'new generation' automotive like, LCD instrumentation screens (MFD and PFD) that feature Avelina M-IIB Operating System. A 'push button' power-on switch is featured, and a large 'power dial' is your new throttle control, similar to what are used in the marine and yacht world.

STYLING
With the use of Carbonfiber for the airframe construction, we are able to paint the aircraft however we like. Taking cues from Lamborghini, we can have dark and light colors, bright high shine colors, and even metallic colors.

Some LHC choices for a 'Ultra Modern' plane of tomorrow range from Neon primary colors, to rich, classy metallic colors, such as Champaigne silver, Range Rover lite green, and a wild metallic orange made famous by Bertone and Lamborghini.

This package features 12 'Theme Packs' of exterior color ranges and feature many versions of interiors. You will also find 4 of the variants to be conceptual, possible United States USAF craft with uses ranging from Recon and lite Transport to Courier services. (Imagine a super quiet, electric plane with very little radar signature).

FEATURES:

  • Super high detail aircraft model in rich, high-count Polygon Mesh construction
  • Ultra high resolution exterior textures in 4096 pixels, and high resolution textures in 2048 pixels throughout the rest of the package
  • Custom sound package that features a quiet, interestingly different 'electric' aircraft sound
  • Custom new-generation Avionics Suite called the 'Avelina OS'. This is personalized for the Blade aircraft with some enhancements
  • Opening 'Countach' style doors that allow full access for the passengers and pilot
  • An Automotive 'luxury exotic' style interior layout
  • A detailed landing gear system that retracts ingeniously into the rear of the aircraft around the motor and prop shaft
  • Ultra-reflective glass on the exterior to keep harmful UV rays out of the cabin
  • Zero interior glass reflection for maximum visual for flying in rich FS scenery environments
  • Low sitting stance provides high 'ground effect' for softer landings and easier ingress for passengers
  • Fat tires and a strong suspension enable soft field landings on semi-rough terrain
  • 478 HP Tesla 'Drive' with a highly aerodynamic shape and sharp glider-like wings enable 200 knot cruise capability for 400 NM
  • Rich leather texture mapping within the cabin for a very sharp, semi-realistic appearance
  • Concealed Solar Array hidden in the transparent roof which protects the high performance solar cells from weathering and the elements
  • High detail pilot
  • Intriguing sound effects, dings and bells

This package only works in the Lockheed Martin Prepar3D flight simulator, and also in Microsoft Flight Simulator X. A version for X-Plane does not yet exist.

System Requirements:

This package features high resolution textures, several being ultra high resolution, and also an 'extreme density' aircraft mesh. This is the highest polygon count structure that LHC has ever produced. It runs extremely smooth in Prepar3d on a 8-core intel based computer with a DirectX 11 GTX660 2-Gig graphics card and 16 Gigs of RAM. But, some people do not have high performance computers. You know if you have a computer that is not up to par with 'massive' textures. 4 of the textures in this pacakge are 4096 pixels, and most of the others are all 2048 pixels. That is rather huge, but becoming normal for modern day addons. So, if you 'think' your computer cannot handle it, you might be right. This isnt as massive as a high end airliner, but the graphics are pretty strong. If you have knowledge and software for reducing texture sizes down to 1024, that might help you considerably, but note that the model is still a super dense poly structure. When installed, this model is approximately 1.5 Gigs. (That tells you a little bit about the size of the graphics).
