We are excited to share with you the official trailer for the upcoming XCub which showcases one of the most requested features from our community.
Enjoy the video and make sure to check out the FAQ below for more detailed information.
Will the glass displays be available to everyone?
The XCub will be released as a free aircraft with a small selection of liveries and a steam gauge panel which includes 2 small glass displays. Both panels (steam gauges + full glass panels) and all liveries will be available with a Pro subscription.
How realistic are the displays?
Not all functionalities are implemented at the moment but the displays will improve over time. Our teaser video is a great indication of what we have now. We will do our best to match real-world instruments look and feel but some complex functionalities might take a long time to get right.
Will you add glass displays to other aircraft?
Yes. We do plan on adding instruments to other aircraft in our current fleet. It will be done gradually, and for older aircraft, a full rework will be required to accommodate this.
Will the A350 have glass displays too?
You bet. However, since the A350 is basically all glass, not all functionality will be implemented right away. Our goal is always to simulate real-world conditions, however, as you know this takes time and processing requirements. We will improve over time.
When is the release?
Soon! ;) As we put the finishing touches on this aircraft and squash a few bugs, we will preview XCub at our booth at FlightSimExpo in Orlando next week. The release will come sometime after that, however, we don’t have a firm date set.
