Carenado is a well-known brand in the world of flight simulation add-ons, and for good reason. The team has made a series of very high-quality models which tend to always please even the most hardcore of sim enthusiasts. This high level of craftsmanship continues to be seen in Carenado’s latest add-on for X-Plane-11, the 690B Turbo Commander.
The 690B is a high-performance turboprop that sports a pressurized cabin, and a maximum cruise speed of 280 knots with a 1500nm range. It’s definitely a great choice for private flights. Carenado’s new model of the aircraft has been designed to take full advantage of the technology found in X-Plane 11 to provide not only an authentic flying experience but some sweet eye candy too. The model supports PBR (physically based rendering), which allows it to have a lot of material shines and reflections. The flight physics and ground handling have also been optimized for XP11. If you enjoy flying in VR, you’ll be happy to know that this new model supports that as well. Also, this add-on pack includes 5 colored HD liveries and one blank HD texture.
Carenado’s 690B Turbo Commander for X-Plane 11 is available now for $37.95.
