RWDesigns Updates DHC-6 Twin Otter

RWDesings, a developer responsible for an Airbus A330 for X-Plane 11, has updated their rendition of DHC-6 Twin Otter for the same simulator.

The information about this update was shared via the Forums, showing off also a one screenshot of the G1000 cockpit, which was added in this update. For now, this G1000 version is only in default model, so it is not available in the float ski or tundra version. However, this is not the only change that has been made in this update. There were some improvements to the autopilot made, beta prop range has been added, and some issues like with manual ignition, overhead flight compartement switch toggle and more has been fixed.


– Added G1000 version
– Make autopilot ALT button behave as altitude arm allowing to intercept set altitude in IAS mode

My aviation enthusiasm started back in March 2016 and since then I fly almost every day when I have time. I always like to discover new places or new things. The vehicles or any kind of technical things always fascinated me. As I was younger, I was also a journalist in a school magazine, so when I got an opportunity to write articles about my favorite hobby, I immediately jumped in.
