The Sopwith Camel is arguably the most recognizable aircraft from World War I. Powered by a rotary engine, this airplane endures in the public imagination even to this day. This X-Plane 10 model was created from scratch, using available specifications, and featuring a custom panel, custom sounds, and functional Vickers machine guns with custom sounds as well.

With the exception of the rotary engine object, the entirety of the airplane was created in Planemaker, so it should have a minimal impact on frame rate.

This is my actually my first aircraft created in X-Plane 10. (I made many aircraft and ground vehicles for X-Plane 5.66 back in the day, but with the exception of a handful of v7 models, I haven't done much with X-Plane until now.) I know this model's far from perfect, but I am definitely open to suggestions for improvements!

This Sopwith Camel is very good. Thanks for it. It flies nice and also the exterior model is very good, the textures look really good. For improvements i would suggest only a 3D cockpit (a must have for any plane) and for the exterior it already looks great, but maybe a pilot and some work on the engine. But other than that, again, good job, its very good.
