LES announced DC-3 v2 for X-Plane 11

Leading Edge Simuations, also known as LES, has recently announced a new version of Douglas DC-3 rendition for X-Plane 11. The announcement was made by Cameron, founder of X-Aviation, via the X-Pilot forums. The version 2 of the aircraft will be a significant update in comparison with version 1.

The developers will aim for more realistic systems plus better texturing and modelling. It was mentioned in the post, that current owners of the DC-3 v1 will get a special upgrade discount, but no specific values were shared just yet.

When released, the aircraft will feature, for example, a complete FMOD sound package by AudioBirdXP, custom effects such as exhaust smoke and heat blur, complete simulation of all aircraft systems or accurate flight characterisctics and engine performance. As usual, the complete feature list can be found below.
