XPFR suggests :

ROBIN DR400 140B (2D)

ICAO : DR40

based on the work of Cedric Dufour

TYPE : LIGHT AIRCRAFTS

PERIOD : 1970-1990

COCKPIT : 2D

CHECKED with X-Plane: 9.50

Uses a Plug-in : no

This plane is replica of a real DR400-140B HB-KFQ property of the “Groupe Vol à moteur de Sion” (Switzerland), it includes a livery and interior design according to the original model. It is likely that there are differences in appearance or installation compared to the similar models which you can know or practice.
Cedric Dufour, real pilot of this aircraft, modelled it for his personal training, that means as close as possible to reality regarding to the aerodynamic behavior, the profiles of wing, the performances and piloting, within the limits of X-Plane possibilities.
The XPFR’s team, attracted by the quality of this model, decided to bring her competences to supplement this work, always based on the HB-KFQ specifications.
This "2D" version has a functional 2D panel and an inert 3D cockpit (it is only an aesthetic feature for the 3D view mode). Why have we developed this version? The use of a cockpit 2D, in addition to the fact that it is particularly easy to use with a mouse, is that the less heavy technique for the computer. Employing this technique achieves a very interesting performance level for low machines(also if you fly over heavy sceneries).
The other major advantage of this technique is that it allows each user to easily modify his instrument panel via Plane-Maker (possibility of customize your plane) what is almost impossible with a 3D cockpit.
Anyway, we provided a 3D cockpit with this version but this one is very simplified and completely dummy (no functional instruments). It is only an aesthetic feature to give a pleasant cockpit in 3D view while preserving the performances of your computer (impossible with a 3D cockpit with active instruments).
