Add-ons developer iniBuilds took to their Discord server to announce the release of SimSolutions’ rendition of the Diamond DA20-C1 Eclipse for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Previously exclusive to the X-Plane flight sim platform, the developer has finally released their first product offering for the platform.

Key features of the MSFS rendition

This incredible edition has been fully custom modeled in both the exterior aspect as well as the interior. SimSolutions’ Diamond DA20-C1 features 4K PBR textures throughout, a fully modeled 3D cockpit, a working canopy and fuel cap, and an aircraft checklist included in the data folder. The aircraft rendition has been modeled using real-world experience and also features the GTX 327 transponder along with the DAVTRON clock system.

The Diamond DA20

The Diamond DA20/DV20 Katana is an Austrian-designed two-seat general aviation light aircraft developed and manufactured by Diamond Aircraft. It was originally produced in Austria as the DV20. The DV20 shares many of its features from the earlier Diamond HK36 Super Dimona and was introduced to service in 1993. SimSolutions have modeled and developed the C1 Eclipse variant of the aircraft which was better equipped for private use. It comes with rear windows for better visibility and is powered by a 125-hp Continental IO-240-B engine. It entered production in 1998.
