FSX Xenon XLC2 Gyrocopter

Jump to: Screenshots | Comments | File Details

Xenon XLC2 Gyrocopter. First of all, the flight model of this add-on isn't exactly like the real thing; it's better. To date, the real Xenon gyro isn't able to do true VTOL, nor is it able to perform zero-airspeed hovering or jump-takeoffs. But this is expected to change in the near future, like already seen in e.g. the Carter Gyro Demonstrator. By Glenn Orlosky.

Xenon XLC2 Gyrocopter.

1 This craft is not complete, but were it to remain in the hangar you would not get the enjoyment out of this superb craft.
2 This craft has excellent flight dynamics as a normal gyrocopter would.
3 This craft has the unique capabilities we may see in our lifetime created by none other then Rob Barendregt who made VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing) available as you may have experienced in an V-22 Osprey.

The craft was designed after the original Xenon XLC2, but there were some additions so as to allow the future concepts to be incorporated all in one model:
* Hoist and Sling
* Fire Suppression retardant
* Floats
* Retractable Landing Gear

The Files
README_Intro.txt = this document
README_VTOL.txt = Rob Barendregt's explanation of how to fly using his VTOL modification = the standard files which are placed under the Airplanes folder = two effects for fire suppression placed in the Effects folder = Gmax scenes, bitmaps, modified modeldef.xml and the RADitor.exe file for resizing the model

Enjoy ......
