Following on from their PA-28 series, C152 and Duchess Model 76, this highly detailed simulation of the Robin DR400-180 Regent has been developed by Just Flight's in-house team following comprehensive, hands-on research with a real-life DR400, G-BEUP, based at Goodwood Aerodrome with SportAir.

The DR400 is a wooden monoplane, first flown in 1972 and still in production in France as the latest DR401. This four-seat, piston-engine aircraft is equipped with fixed tricycle landing gear, a 180 HP four-cylinder engine and a large forward-sliding canopy.

The aircraft features a distinctive cranked wing design and sliding canopy, giving it a unique appearance among GA aircraft and excellent cruise performance. It is fitted with an auxiliary fuel tank for a total capacity of 240 litres, providing great range.

The DR400’s excellent visibility, payload capabilities and 130-knot cruise speed make it an ideal aircraft for touring and flight training.

Moving into the cockpit, the aircraft features a comprehensive suite of IFR-capable avionics including a GMA 340 audio selector, GNS 430 GPS unit, KY 97 COM 2 radio, KN 64 DME, GTX 330 transponder, KR 85 ADF and S-TEC 55 autopilot.
 
The model takes advantage of the latest technologies such as PBR to produce stunning visual fidelity. The DR400 is flown all around the world and our add-on reflects that global popularity. The package features liveries from the UK, USA, Europe and Australia.

Model

  • Accurately modelled Robin DR400-180 Regent, built using real-world aircraft plans and comprehensive photography of the real aircraft
  • Numerous animations including sliding canopy, luggage door and engine exhaust
  • Realistic modelling and texturing of the distinctive cranked wings
  • Ground equipment including chocks and tie-downs
  • 4096x4096 textures are used to produce the highest possible texture clarity
  • Bump and specular mapping used throughout the aircraft to produce a truly 3D feel
  • PBR materials (requires P3D v4.4 or later)

Cockpit

  • A truly 3D virtual cockpit right down to accurately modelled seat belts and screw heads - every instrument is constructed fully in 3D with smooth animations
  • Authentic fuel and RPM gauge needle ‘wobble’
  • Dimmable instrument lighting (P3D v4+ only)
  • Cockpit textures feature wear and tear based on reference photos taken in the real aircraft to produce an authentic environment
  • Interactive checklists for every stage of flight, including engine start
  • Panel state system which will automatically save the panel state whenever a flight is saved and reload the panel state whenever that flight is loaded
  • Aircraft configuration system that will allow you to choose between 'cold & dark' or 'ready for take-off'
  • Fully functional and comprehensive IFR-capable avionics fit:
    • GMA 340 audio selector
    • GNS 430 GPS unit
    • KY 97 COM 2 radio with frequency database
    • KN 64 DME which can display information from NAV 1 or its own inbuilt receiver (NAV 3)
    • GTX 330 transponder with flight timers, altitude information and monitoring
    • KR 85 ADF with ADF/ANT/BFO modes
    • S-TEC 55 autopilot with lateral hold modes (HDG, NAV, APR, REV) and vertical modes (ALT, VS)
  • Flight computer panel with useful information such as fuel burn, endurance, speed and wind speed/direction
  • Flight1 GTN and GNS integration in the virtual cockpit (Flight1 GTN/GNS sold separately)

Aircraft Systems

  • Custom-coded electrical system with functional circuit breakers for isolating instruments and systems
  • Custom-coded fuel system with realistic reserve to main tank fuel transfer and automatic fuel selector option
  • Failures including spark plug fouling, limited battery life, vapour lock and more
  • Refill menu for quick and easy refilling of fuel and oil, and recharging of the battery
