Cessna 172 Tail dragger v1.0
Cessna 172 Skyhawk G1000 Tail dragger
A powerfull member of the short take-off and landing capable Skyhawk family built on a Lycoming 210HP STC :
The C172 Bush Kit
The C172 Tail dragger
and soon another useful model
This is a plane patch over Asobo’s Skyhawk and adds a new plane to your hangar.
Cockpit settings :
There’s no easy way now to switch to the classic gauges C172 because of the DRM.
So that’s currently a G1000 only option and uses the very same interior glass cockpit of the AS1000 Skyhawk.
3D model modifications of the original Asobo Skyhawk plane included :
tail center wheel
large and stable bush wheels
Sportsman STOL Camber Cuffs on the wings
Increased flaps angle
Flight model modifications included :
more power from a STC 210HP 4 cylinders engine
4 position flaps (0°, 10°, 20° and down to 40°)
Liveries included :
Many thanks to ANN0V for the liveries, especially the red and metal inspired by this story : Plane & Pilot Photo Of The Week: Brian Jenkins’ Bare Metal Beauty
Notes to livery makers :
Registration numbers are split in two in panel.cfg : you will be able to set different colors for the wing and the side reg.
Common parts of the plane have the exact same name as the C172 AS1000 model
New parts have there textures in bush_172_* and tail_172_* files (wheels, landing gear…)
Stickers are baked in the model, if you want to replace with yours, edit the file : BUSH172_STICKERS_ALBD.PNG You can also remove the stickers with a transparent texture file.
EzRyder has made a very nice ALLInOne C172 Template. Don’t miss that paint kit.
Flight model :
Flight model is based on reaperS73 work on the C172 STC 210HP STOL G1000 and allows to operate in a STOL mode in bush locations.
About this work :
3D model has been made with blender from the export of Skyhawk G1000 Asobo’s original model.
All the external textures and animations had to be redone and match the original definitions.
Bush wheels and legs come from the Asobo c152 and savage cub model.
A huge thanks to Newktv’s developpement series that helped a LOT.
Huge thanks to beta testers : ANNOV, smvrf, Pops738
