A Gmax FSX/SDK retractable landing gear version of Cessna's 177 Cardinal proposed replacement for the 172. At 200 hp and considerably more aerodynamic than the 172, it was truly a standout airplane in its own right. This model is based on the real C177RG in which the author received his complex endorsement. Includes full function VC with accurately modified gauges. Model, textures and flight dynamics by Brett Henderson.

It is great to fly one of my best planes. Thank you

Awesome model! One of my favorite FSX planes of all time.

Any chance of more paint schemes, or maybe a fixed-gear version with wheel pants?

Pro MemberBeardSpriteSat, 22 Jul 2017 17:55:56 GMT

Fun plane to fly - thanks!

Seems a bit slow for an RG. Couldn't get more than 120 ktas at 85% and 8000 ft. No wind.

MattThu, 12 Nov 2015 02:59:33 GMT

Great plane! I can't get panel lights, or interior lights on though... Tis fine if I only use it for day flights.

It might have to do with DirectX10. I switched it off again and than all liveries / Textures were well shown again. My system is Windows10 with the newest DirecX-drivers, but it seems not to harmonise with old versions.

I'd like to know why your programs work and 90 percent of the others don't.. What do you do different as your planes are the only one's the paint works... all other I download are ghost white we no graphics...

thanks for you great files
