GotGravel continues to amaze us with this new mod for MSFS 2020: The "Vertigo - Turbo Prop Racer" (fictional) which is a heavily modified JMB VL-3 (ULM) with a modernized 850HP turbine. The Vertigo is also inspired by the Lancair "Turbulence" (a very similar aircraft with the world's fastest single-engine turbo propeller) created by Mike Patey.
The Vertigo is endowed with phenomenal power. You only need 25-30% takeoff power. Remember to set the depth trim to neutral.
The Vertigo runs on jet fuel, achieves a record top speed of 380 knots (single-engine turboprop) and can climb to 8,000 fpm.
It can go vertical just after takeoff and still accelerate. Or travel great distances in comfort and style.
Pilot, buckle up your harness. And welcome to the world of Vertigo!

Additionally, several hundred hours were spent developing and testing the flight model, which was created from scratch. JMB factory data was used to create the most accurate geometric model possible, verified and supplemented with virtual wind tunnel results.
