Lionheart Kodiak & Aeroproyecto C172N compatibility w/P3Dv5

Recommended Posts


I am looking for a floatplane for my P3Dv5 HF3 and found 2 planes I liked, which vendors sell announcing them as a maximum P3Dv4 compatibility. Otherwise, I have read in this forum and others that simmers are using both aircraft in P3Dv5. I would like to hear about before purchasing in the dark.

Thanks and regards,

I installed the Quest Kodiak in my P3D5 and it runs. The cockpit is fine, displays work as expected. But it is not the latest in aircraft design regarding the cockpit. 

Installation was easy, just selected P3D4 and then changed the path into Prepar3D v5. 

I don´t have the Aeroprojecto C172. I have Carenado Cessna 172II N floats and C185F with floats. They are compatible with v5 but older models too.

I do recommend the Kodiak as it has become my go to aircraft for many months now. If you purchase it from the Aerosoft web site they offer a Version 5 installer. I also recommend that you consider install the Reality XP 750 for the GPS. It makes for a very nice look in the cockpit and is a great Nav tool. If you go that root look up Bert Pieke and ask for his GPS mod for the XP guage. It is very easy to do...just a couple of files I believe. Just private message him here at avsim with your email address and ask for the mod and he will hook you up.

Both of these planes work fine for me in P3Dv5. As far as the Aeroproyecto C172N goes, it works fine in P3Dv5, except that I find it's way too bouncy in P3Dv5 waves. To correct for this add the following statement to the [contact_points] section of the aircraft.cfg file:

// Stabilizes aircraft or boat by reducing excessive skipping and bouncing in rough seas (water set to Ultra)
