HERAUSGEBER

The Lockheed Vega was an exceptional aircraft for it's era and won numerous records. For a prolonged period of time, she was the aircraft of choice for many famous and award-winning aviators. Among many others, the Vega was flown by Amelia Earhart, Willey Post, Jimmy Doolittle, George H Wilkins, Jimmie Mattern and many, many others. She was in service for Braniff Airways, Transcontinental and Western, Shell, Standard Oil, Air Mexico and other companies.

Wing42 brings this aircraft in exceptional detail into the flight simulator of your choice. The installer contains the Lockheed Vega 5 and Detroit Lockheed DL-1 for FSX, FSXSE and P3Dv4.x.

Why Early-Access?

We decided to develop the Lockheed Vega very closely with the flightsim community. We want to make the Vega an unforgettable product that brings enjoyment to you for a long time in the future. By purchasing the Vega now, you will get full access to the aircraft in its current state and of course you will be eligible for the full version as soon as it's released!

With this purchase, you can immediately take her for a spin and check out the numerous features of this addon. We want to encourage you to criticize, make suggestions and help us hunt down those nasty bugs. In short: be part of the development process! We will be releasing updates for the Lockheed Vega continously and with these updates, the price of the Vega will gradually increase to reflect the added features and the hard work that goes into the product.

Wing42 and data security

Wing42 is dedicated to protect your personal data and the integrity of your operating system and simulation platform. With Wing42 you never have to sacrifice your privacy or your data security.

For further transparency, we included a list of all files that are included in our setup wizard in our Installation Guide. In this document, we also inform you in detail where these files are being installed to.

If you have any concerns regarding the safety of your data or the integrity of your PC, please don't hessitate to contact us!

NOTE: Please note that we currently don't deploy any form of DRM. We might however in the future integrate a non-invasive activation procedure into our installation program.

FeaturesCurrent stand: version 0.85.0 (06-APR-2019)

Listed here are some of the features you can experience in the current build of the Aircraft. Please note that the list is by no means complete and some of the mentioned features might still have some issues.

3D model

state-of-the-art 3d models with hand crafted and highly detailed 4k textures throughout the aircraft.

Flight model

Super-realistic flight dynamics and aircraft performance.

Ground equipment

Fully functional ground equipment with wheel chocks, battery cart, passenger stairs, fuel drums, tie downs and a baggage cart

[NEW!]Interactive Ground Crew

Dialog-driven ground crew interface with a life-like audible and visible feedback.

Payload manager

Functional payload manager for boarding/unboarding passengers, load cargo and fuel. The ground crew will first install all necessary equipment before loading the aircraft.

Walkaround interface

Interface to perform the mandatory walkaround of your aircraft to prevent problems during your flight.

[NEW!]Sound effect

The Wing42 Vega is utilising a custom sound engine to produce unique sounds for all controls in the cockpit and an audible ramp agent.

Special effects

Our friends at FSFX Packages supplied an extraordinaty set of special effects for thee Wing42 Lockheed Vega 5.[Click here for more information]

System simulation

Through the implementation of the Prop-o-Tronic physics engine, the Vega features an extensive simulation of various of the aircraft's systems with more in the works! Working examples:

  • [NEW!] Fully functional Spark Advance Lever to control the timing of the ignition.
  • [NEW!] Realistic engine start-up procedure, considering priming/mixture and proper ignition settings.
  • Customized barometric system, simulating every component. I.e. Static port, alternate port, pitot tube, selector valve, vsi, asi, altimeter.
  • Electrical system, running independant of the sim. Real physics calculations of voltage and current of all electrical components. Includes a working(!) fusebox with working(!) spares.
  • Realistic vacuum system, based on real-world physics. Components include an engine-driven pump, venturi tube, the plumbing and connectors, vacuum source selector, pressure relief valve (with simulated spring forces), real-physic gyros in all vacuum-driven instruments, etc.
  • Real-world physics to calculate the propagation and dissipation of heat throughout the engine.
  • Super-detailed oil system, with each component being simulated individually.
  • Engine vibrations with calculated frequencies and amplitudes depending on the various conditions of the engine.
  • The 8-day-clock actually needs to be wound up at least every 8 days to keep the time.
  • Fully functioning and responsive wobble pump.
  • Instument needle physics: Every single needle on the instrument panel moves based on individually calculated physics.

Persistency

You'll find the aircraft exactely how you left it. Except for the battery that might be drained if you left on the lights.

Great Animations

We take great pride in the custom animations of all parts of the aircraft. You'll experience the airframe shaking when starting the engine, loose parts will vibrate, and the handles in the cabin will swing with the movement of the aircraft.

Intuitive Interaction

Use the mouse as you would move your hands in the cockpit. While simple switches are still operated with a simple mouse-click, we took great care in providing you an immersive experience with the controls. The real-world wobble pump was operated by moving the lever continously forwards and backwards - to operate the wobble pump in the Wing42 Vega you click the lever and drag it forwards and bankwards while keeping the mouse button pressed. The majority of controls in the cockpit follow a similar logic, mimicing the movement of the pilot's hand in the real cockpit.

Great performance

Despite all the detail in both apperance and simulation, the Lockheed Vega performs exceptionally well, even on low-end computers.

Liveries

The Lockheed Vega currently comes in many different liveries and variations:

  • Lockheed factory default livery (NC14236)
  • Fictional Wing42 livery (NC5542)
  • Shell No.7 livery (NC13705)
  • Braniff Airways livery (NC8495)
  • Green "military" paintjob
  • Jimmy Mattern's "Eagle" (NR869E)
  • Mirow Air Service (NC162W)
  • Fictional "The Sky Lounge" livery (N5KY)
  • [NEW!]Privately owned DL-1 with a metal fuselage (NC12288)
  • [NEW!]Army transport Y1C-12 Detroit Lockheed (AC 31-405)
  • [NEW!]Transcontinental and Western (NC624E)
  • [NEW!]Mexican Transportes Aéreos de Chipas S.A. (double registration XA-BAW / XA-BKG)

Realism and historicity with no exceptions

With the Lockheed Vega, we at Wing42 strive to provide you an immersive and historically accurate flight simulator experience with no compromises! The aircraft is designed as it was originally flown in the 1920s. And that means unreliable instruments, no radio, no navigational equipment, no GPS. That makes this aircraft very challenging to operate in your simulator, but it also gives you an incredibly rewarding flying experience only few flightsim addons can provide.

All custom system simulations are calculated using our own real-world physics engine "Prop-o-Tronic". Take the vacuum components as an example. Within the Addons DLL file the pressure differential between the interacting components is individually calculated, each part influencing the outcome. Tiny leaks in the connectors will cause a pressure drop in the system, which limits the airflow that hits the vanes of the gyros of DG/AH/T&B, which in turn may cause them to slow down due to the friction loss in the bearings, which might result in a more sluggish instrument behavior. All these calculations are constantly being performed under-the-hood, based on real physics!

In every future update, we will extend this level of detail to the various systems of the Vega with the goal of creating the most realistic and immersive experience of operating an aircraft from the Golden Era of Aviation!

Upcoming features

While the Wing42 Vega addon already provides a fully functioning aircraft with extensive customizations and gimmicks many other commercial aircraft addons currently don't provide, it is not quite finished yet. Over the course of the next months we will be releasing a number of updates you'll get access to. Among some other things, here are the most pressing issues we will adress:

Engine simulation

While the ground work is done for many components of the P&W R-1340 Wasp engine, there's still a lot to do. E.g.:

  • [DONE!] Ignition - Implementation of spark advance (timing of the ignition), spark plug fouling and the booster coil.
  • [DONE!] Carburetor - Realistic simulation of carburetor and mixture

Engine sounds

The engine sounds of the aircraft are not up to our high standards yet. A custom sound set will be included in the next update to version 0.90!

Even more variants!

While we include a sneak-a-peek of our upcoming "Winnie Mae", the aircraft is not fully functional yet. The completed Winnie Mae will be part of update 0.90.

Wear, tear & failures

While provisions have been put in place to allow components of the aircraft to fail, currently no major failures (other than a blown fuse or clogged static port) are implemented just yet. This however will change soon!

Paintkit

A paintkit is currently NOT provided with the Vega, because we are anticipating having to change parts of the texture maps. We are planning on releasing a comprehensive paintkit for all you repainters out there!

Documentation

Just like the Software itself, it's documentation is also work-in-progress. The Lockheed Vega comes with the aforementioned "Installation Guide", the "Simulation Manual" and a (addmittedly anachronistic) checklist. Together, these documents provide you with all necessary information to succesfully install and operate this aircraft. More content is added to the documentation with every new update.

[NEW!]Included in this add-on is a 70-page e-book about the history of the Lockheed Aircraft Company and the Lockheed Vega in particular. The book is written by Tom Harnish and is full of intersting history and inspiring stories, a great read

You can have a look at the current Simulation Manual over here (last update: 06/04/2019).

Kundenrezensionen
PREALSOFT - HD CITIES - CASABLANCA FSX P3D
Ken McVie
This transforms the look and feel of Casablanca airport for P3D by Prealsoft. On takeoff to the west, the city is presented in amazing detail with the port and all key landmarks modelled well. Howeve-
r, I am a bit annoyed with Prealsoft for bringing out a combined Casablanca airport & city package not long after I purchased the airport on its own. Had I waited a few more weeks, I could have purchased the combined package more cheaply than buying the two separately (which is what I did). So, ths alone has put me off buying anymore Prealsoft airport products in the future.
JUSTSIM - DÜSSELDORF AIRPORT EDDL - V.2 FOR P3D V4.4+
Wladimir Belenky
The version V2 has better performance! Many bugs of the previous version have been fixed. A successful update.
CARENADO - DO228 100 HD SERIES FSX P3D
thomas holzinger
The model and textures are simply great, as well the immersion in the VC and in the virtual cabin. The engine sound is ok, even the start-up sequence seems too short. The flight dynamics seems reasonable. The model has the Carenado usual animations which looks great. Unfortunately there is a major bug in regard to the stab trim indication which is reversed when the instrument lights are switched on.
JUSTSIM - STUTTGART AIRPORT - P3D V4.4+
Keino Furbert-Jacobs
Nothing less than Amazing!!!!!!!!-
! Need to say nothing more.
TROPICALSIM - TIRANA LATI 2020 FSX P3D
mike georgiou
Amazing Scenery, with great performance !! A must for All simmers. Very Well done ! I Only wish an Update to Match FTX Global Color's !!
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - CHICAGO AIRPORTS X FSX FSW P3D
Dominik Jensen
Eines muss man vorab wissen: Man kann dieses Addon nicht direkt mit FlyTampa Midway oder mit FSDT O'Hare vergleichen. Denn diese Airport-Serie ist speziell für Chicago City optimiert, und das merkt man bei der Optik und bei der Performance: -
Und hier tun die Airports genau das, was sie tun sollen, und das sogar ziemlich gut! Selbst in O'Hare ist die Performance mit AI Traffic und Chicago City noch gut. So macht es wirklich Spaß, auch mit komplexen Flugzeugen solche Großflughäfen anzufliegen, auch ohne high-end-PC. Optisch ist es natürlich nicht ganz high-end, was man an verschiedenen Details an den Bodentexturen, aber auch an den Terminals merkt. Aber DD hat es geschafft, dennoch viel Atmosphäre und "Echtheit" zu vermitteln. Der Flughafen wirkt nicht steril, obwohl er an verschiedenen Stellen zugunsten der Performance etwas generalisiert wirkt. Dies gilt v.a. für die Nachtbeleuchtun-
g. Ähnliches gilt für Midway. Und auch der Executive Airport kann sich gut sehen lassen. Er kommt z.B. von der Textur-Schärfe her - verständlicherw-
eise aus Gründen der Performance - nicht ganz an die neueren ORBX-Flugplätze ran. Muss er aber auch nicht, denn er kann sich auch so gut und gerne sehen lassen und macht seinen Job als dritter (oder gar vierter) detaillierter Großstadtflugha-
fen sehr gut. Wem der Anflug nicht so wichtig ist, wer aber einen super detaillierten O'Hare sucht, der wäre mit FSDT wahrscheinlich besser bedient. Aber für alle Airline-Piloten-
, die trotz IFR in komplexen Flugzeugen auch mal gerne beim Anflug aus dem Fenster schauen und eine fantastische Aussicht mit viel Atmosphäre genießen wollen, sowie natürlich für alle VFR-Fans, kann ich dieses Paket wärmstens empfehlen. Den-
n DD hat meiner Meinung nach genau die richtige Mischung zwischen Performance und Optik getroffen. Fre-
ue mich auf Tokyo City.
ANTS AIRPLANES - TIGER MOTH PRO FSX P3D
Mathias Postema
The best tiger Moth on the market. I love it! Matthias
SAMSCENE - ROME CITY X FSX P3D
Dieter Unruh
Entgegen einigen negativen Beurteilungen aus unterschiedlich-
en Foren kann ich diesem Addon jedoch volle 5 Sterne vergeben. Die Bilder des Herstellers entsprechen auch dem, was man später in der Szenerie zu sehen bekommt. Der Anflug auf LIRF RWY 26 macht besonders viel Spaß, da die Route direkt über die Innenstadt verläuft. An all die Kritiker kann ich nur sagen, kauft erstmal selbst das Produkt und testet dieses ausgiebig, bevor im Internet nur heiße Luft verbreitet wird. Also von mir ganz klare Empfehlung an alle FVR Flieger.
FLIGHT REPLICAS - MESSERSCHMITT BF-109G-6 FOR P3DV4
Daniel Mrawek
Sehr schönes Modell, guter Sound. Schade nur, dass man die aircraft.cfg selbst bearbeiten muss, damit die ATC einem nicht Experimental ruft. Das geht so: atc_type=Silent atc_model=B209 -
Da dies eigentlich nicht meine Arbeit wäre, gibt es Abzug.
VIRTUALCOL - EMBRAER E190-195 REGIONAL PACK FSX P3D
Alec Main
Very impressed with this product! VirtualCol continues to amaze me with their progress of each product they release! This is by far, significantly better than their previous versions of their E-Jets v1 and v2. Textures look great inside and out, implementing their features of separated landing lights and windshield wiper animations as in previous products released in the past years. I've been keeping track of this product for over half a year now, and been checking up on it daily to see it's progress. Happy to say, I am not disappointed at the release. $21 USD for this aircraft or $12 if you've previously purchased the old version of this series, not a bad price at all. The only thing I found odd, was while the product was in development, it mentioned an Embraer Lineage 1000 to be released as well, but it wasn't included in the final product; shame that the corporate/busin-
ess version of this plane never made it and was scrapped at the last minute. Still a very enjoyable plane however and like with every VirtualCol product, it's easy on the frames! Flying into busy areas such as Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, etc is much smoother with VirtualCol planes, and that has always been a staple to their products. Al-
so wanted to point out that this is the first VirtualCol plane that has wingflex! Very neat feature added and the first for VirtualCol products! Looking forward to the future releases of their products as always; and can't wait for the new innovations and features they'll add next to their upcoming products!
