SkunkCrafts Announces Lancair Legacy RG, X-Plane 11

SkunkCrafts has officially announced development of the Lancair Legacy RG for X-Plane 11.  The project is to be a highly realistic and detailed representation of the real world aircraft – according to the developer, “Everything but the GNS530 is custom-coded and close to real instrument.”  Release is currently expected for late 2018.

The Lancair Legacy RG is a powerful 310 horsepower two seat homebuilt design – with regards to flight dynamics, the developer comments, “this little 2 seater will give you goose bumps whenever you push the throttle.”

Check out an early development screenshot below.
