  • New parts have their textures in bush_172_* and tail_172_* files (wheels, landing gear…)

  • The front of the wings are the sportsman camber cuff, defined in BUSH172_SPORTSMAN_* files.

EzRyder has made a very nice ALLInOne C172 Template. Don’t miss that paint kit.

Also, don’t miss the blender multi template pack from AIRPAC1

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
Many thanks to EzRyder who figured it out how to use the classic cockpit MikeFear303 for the classic cockpit xml & systems trick !
