This is a brand new simulation of the last purpose-built dive-bomber used by the U.S. Navy.

Designed to replace the Douglas SBD Dauntless divebomber, the new Curtiss SB2C had a difficult birth and a tough early career. Structural weakness, poor performance and significant handling issues all led to inevitable delays for the production model to enter service.
The challenging handling issues were never really resolved and the aircraft earned many nicknames including ‘The Beast’. However, in the hands of experienced crews, the ’Helldiver’ became a formidable anti-shipping attack bomber and sub-hunter, contributing greatly to allied successes in the Pacific theatre.

The flight dynamics in this unique simulation have been engineered to give a challenging, authentic flight experience based on contemporary reports and pilot notes.In experienced hands, the SB2C became one of the most effective weapons employed in the Pacific war and featured in just about every major battle.

Every detail of this amazing machine has been authentically modelled in perfect detail. The rear gunner's cockpit boasts a full animated gunner and twin machine guns, housed in a retractable "turtledeck" which is also fully and authentically animated. Every switch, knob and lever in the pilot's cockpit is functional thanks to many unique animations.

Special "stutter-start" prop effects and sounds simulate the Wright Cyclone engine perfectly and the cockpit includes all the accurate switch procedures for authentic engine starts.

The bomb doors open and bombs will swing down and drop when dive-bombing. The high fidelity exterior model includes the Helldiver's unique dive flap system which has been modelled and functions to a high degree of accuracy. The wings fold revealing detailed working mechanisms and there is a working tail-hook for carrier landings.

There are two brand-new USN pilot figures with animations that include oxygen masks which are put on at altitude and you can toggle the rear gunner action that swings the gunner round and down to man the guns.

This is the most authentic rendition of this venerable USN dive bomber available and will provide many hours of challenging, simulation pleasure.

WF SCENERY STUDIO - HONG KONG INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT VHHH P3D
Gregory
Excellent scenery! Airport modeling done with highest standards, great level of detailing. PBR textures are great. Dynamic lights looks good. Excellent performance. Highly recommended.
SIMFLYER - GARMIN GNS430 GNS530 GPS PACKAGE
Carlos
Good product. Looks very much like the real thing and easy to install if you read the instructions. Easier if you have working knowledge of panels and how to read them. You have to turn on the GPS by pressing the comm volume button. You can even stack the 530 over the 430 if you want a second GPS to use comm2 and nav2 radios. Unfo-
rtunately the GNS430 cursor lags behind the scroll when trying to select a procedure from a long list (i.e., DFW), and sometimes there is no scroll at all (observed if the airport's approaches have been edited), so you may have a hard time trying to select a certain procedure if the cursor is off-screen. The 530 does not give you a distance from track indication (it did appear in one instance on vloc, but I wasn't able to get it to come back). Neither offers terrain info. Mostly aesthetic (very good aesthetic), but a slight downgrade from the standard GPS500 for practicality because of those lost features and issues. I think the 530 is better, and it also has TCAS.

I'm running P3D v4.5 with an i7 and GTX1080. This is a great piece of scenery. Fabulous frame rates and lots of detail. I love the internal views of the terminal buildings. Good to find another developer competing with the big guys. I plan to see what else they have. Best airport on the west Mediterranean and great base for African destinations out of Europe.

Excellent scenery with lots of landmark buildings reproduced. Great performance under P3DV5. Higly competent and responsive support by developers. -
If I would wish one thing then possibly all the li-Long areas could be provided with 3D buildings rater than Photoscenery. -
But who knows, possibly developers are already working on that....
DIGITAL DESIGN - TENERIFE V2 P3D5
Daniel
A really beautiful scenery which makes flying in and out of Tenerife South a real joy. The colouring of the terrain is really nice and the autogen around the airport with many hand placed buildings is superb. The addition of the sloped runway and also slope of the taxiways really adds a new level of immersion to the sim and just brings the airport to life. I deduct one star just because the autogen around the airport is beautifully done, but the autogen for the rest of the island is non-existent and this is a real shame. Overa-
ll I recommend the scenery!
REX 5 - WORLDWIDE AIRPORTS HD FSX P3D
Jack
The total amount of value you get out of this product is purely based on where you fly in your sim. I would highly recommend this product to anyone that flies to sceneries that are not available; for instance bush flying in Alaska. But if you are one that regularly flys airliners in Europe, I wouldn't recommend this as I think investing into single airport sceneries is more beneficial to your simming experience. To add, I was a tad disappointed in the options as I think REX 4 Texture direct does a better job at airport textures. Overall, it's an alright product but the way you perceive this product is going to be based on where you fly.

Its great that the guys from AUscene acted on my email about replacing the static jetways hats of to them for listening. Its a great product
TECHNOBRAIN - FS ADD-ON COLLECTION NAHA AIRPORT FSX P3D
Stephen
This scenery is of a good standard. However as with all the TechnoBrain sceneries, it is amongst the most expensive single airport sceneries out there and as such you would expect it to be top shelf quality. It certainly is not that! I selected runway 18R in the FMC and imagine my surprise when on finals (and wondering why "APPROACH" would not engage)I realise that 18R does not exist.

I am amazed by the shanghai city center especially the bund and pudong area, also with acceptable frame rate, whether flying from or landing either the Hongqiao or Pudong airport, now with the shanghai city skyline gives a lot of immersion
