• The Vertx Diamond DA62


    Chuck_Jodry-VJPL

    Vertx Flight Simulation is proud to announce the release of their first aircraft – the Diamond DA62 for Prepar3D v4, available for purchase now at www.vertxsim.com

    The Diamond DA62 is one of the newest and most advanced GA aircraft you can buy today. Powered by two turbo-charged 180hp jet-fuel diesel engines, the DA62 features a sleek carbon-composite airframe, advanced avionics, TKS anti-icing, redundant engine control computers, and many more advanced systems.

    The Vertx DA62 provides the most realistic and immersive flying experience possible. Every aspect of the Vertx DA62 exhibits unmatched attention-to-detail—from the 3D models and textures, to the avionics, the aircraft systems, the aerodynamics, the sounds, and the overall user experience.

    The Vertx G1000 features the clearest and smoothest-moving glass display yet seen in P3D, thanks to the innovative use of 3D modelling to build the digital display. Text is clear and readable, colours are smooth and crisp, and the attitude indicator moves perfectly smoothly at the same frame-rate as the rest of the sim.

    The G1000 MFD features large, clear maps with multiple display options. Integral with the G1000 is a fully-featured flight planner that allows you to create, save, edit and load flight plans directly in the G1000, or load flight plans from an external flight planner.  Realistic direct-to, GPS OBS, VNAV and GPS LPV approach guidance are also simulated.

    The Vertx DA62 features in-depth systems modelling, allowing you to fly using the exact same procedures outlined in the real-life DA62 POH.

    All cockpit settings are saved between flights, meaning whenever you start a new flight in the Vertx DA62 it’s just how left it on your last flight.

    Each engine features dual control computers with automated run-up, single power lever control and automatic propeller feathering. Other systems include: a custom electrical system with realistic battery drain, ground power, backup batteries on engine ECUs and the standby attitude module; a realistic fuel system with manually pumped auxiliary tanks; emergency gravity powered gear extension; TKS anti-icing; supplemental oxygen, and much more.

    The flight model received particular attention, with the aim of bringing new levels of realism to P3D. Utilising code written outside of the standard P3D flight model, the lift and drag values for each individual wing are constantly calculated, ensuring the most realistic low speed, stall, and spin characteristics possible.

    To ensure the most realistic single-engine handling possible, we’ve added more custom code to simulate single-engine asymmetrical thrust. An engine failure while flying at high power with low airspeed can lead to loss of directional control and inadvertent spin entry.

    All interior sounds are controlled by custom code exclusive to the Vertx DA62. The engine sounds feature ultra-realistic response to RPM and power changes. Propeller sounds feature numerous advancements including propeller blade angle-of-attack effects. Wind sounds react to aircraft attitude, gear position, and more. Sounds become louder when you open the doors.

    Additional features include: hypoxia (oxygen starvation) simulation; Wing flex with custom control code; doors that react to airspeed and attitude changes; volumetric propellers that smoothly transition between high and low RPM; floating magnetic compass; cockpit vibrations; stall buffet; over-speed cockpit vibrations and wing flutter; engine start-up and shut-down vibrations; and much more.

    A feature-rich config app allows you set the Vertx DA62 to be just the way you like.

    Brilliant version of the DA62. I mainly fly in VR, this model looks great and also simulates many of the systems and avionics. A real bargain and one of the best 2018 addons. The developer is very active, updating the software when required. It runs very nicely on my system, not impacting FPS anymore than A2A, Majestic or Leonardo.

    The old saying..."This is as real as it gets" is about the only way to describe the Vertx DA62. If you enjoy GA flying then it is just a no-brainer for sure. Vertx DA-62 + Prepar3d V4.4 is something special.

    I'd sure love to get some Pireps from early adopters, especially about FPS. It looks like an outstanding addon.

    Very easy on the frames based on my experience.  G1000 is very smooth.  Well worth it to buy.  My computer is 8700K, 1080ti video card.

    As mentioned before, I’d buy a box of flying donuts from Sean- period. His work (historically AND PRESENTLY) is just that good.

    RUN to your keyboard and buy this release, but please RTMS if you want to use her to her full potential.

    I purchased it the day i found out about it and am very happy about it.  It did initially lower my fps on a mid range system but after following the p3d settings recommendations i am able to get my normal FPS ( i am set at 30fps on a 4K UHD tv running at 30Hz with a GTX 1060 6GB).

    I typically fly GA aircraft from A2A, Milviz, Carenado/Alebeo, and Nemeth Designs.  This is on par with A2A and Milviz.  Top Notch and priced right.  You will not be disappointed.
