[UPDATE] Cessna 172 Taildragger (freeware) | Bagolu

A powerfull member of the short take-off and landing capable Skyhawk family built on a Lycoming 210HP STC

This is a plane patch over Asobo’s Skyhawk. When installing this mod, it adds a new plane to your hangar.

This mod respects the Game Content Usage Rules from Microsoft.

It includes :

  • an in-game short manual (help icon on the panel)
  • state saving (all buttons, levers, options…)

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

It also includes all the modifications made for my other mods :

  • working doors, windows, sunvisors
  • a configuration book to choose all options
  • wheel chocks, tiedowns, covers, gpu
  • VFR maps on a cardboard on the yoke
  • a tablet to display external applications (sky4sim, fs mca, vfrmap…)
  • visible pilot, copilot, passengers
  • custom seats configuration (pax, cargo)
  • checklist cards and flip checklist box
  • various radio stacks (vfr, all radios, pms750, tds750nxi)
  • optionnal garmin G5 units
  • state saving
  • etc.

Even though the mod was initialy released on april 18, 2021 on fs.to, this thread starts at v3.0.0 so I can give you more development insights and update news.

Feel free to discuss the mod in this topic : Cessna 172 taildragger

Happy bush flying !




v3.0.0 is out
Major rework :

  • I have abandonned the reference to the 2 existing asobo interior models (G1000 & classic), as it was getting harder and harder to follow the updates and impossible to debug with encrypted files
  • All features from my other mods have been backported to this one through a huge model edit :
    • working doors, windows, sunvisors
    • a configuration book to choose all options
    • wheel chocks, tiedowns, covers, gpu
    • VFR maps on a cardboard on the yoke
    • a tablet to display external applications (sky4sim, fs mca, vfrmap…)
    • visible pilot, copilot, passengers
    • custom seats configuration (pax, cargo)
    • checklist cards and flip checklist box
    • various radio stacks (vfr, all radios, pms750, tds750nxi)
    • optionnal garmin G5 units
    • state saving
    • Retro interiors (a few liveries available)
    • etc.
  • New features and fixes for this mod :
    • Manual flaps lever between the seats (you can use an axis/mouse or up/down buttons through 4 positions)
    • Rivets are now rendered correctly
    • prop animation fixed, materials updated
    • light blueish windshield (exterior only)

Please, note that old liveries will need to be updated for this plane : it’s like a new variant. Texture pictures will be fully compatible, it’s a matter of configuration and layout changes only ! Feel free to contact me if you need support.

That’s a lot of changes and I hope there won’t be too much bugs left. Hoppefuly not enough to let you enjoy the bush ways !

Fly low, fly safe !
