Here is the Cessna 172 Skyhawk Amphibian, a powerful member of the Skyhawk family capable of short take-off and landing, built on a Lycoming 210HP STC:
This is an airplane patch on Asobo's Skyhawk and adds a new airplane to your hangar (located at the start: letter C ... like Cessna)
Modifications of the original Asobo Skyhawk aircraft 3D model included:
Wipline 2350 floats, with external cables, retractable landing gear.
Sportsman STOL Camber Cuffs on the fenders.
The angle of the flaps increased.
Flight model changes included:
More power than a 210HP 4-cylinder STC engine
4-position shutters (0 °, 10 °, 20 ° and up to 40 °)
Landing at sea:
Be gentle when you land in the sea (as much as on land), try not to bounce, or you might crash.
Check the gear indicator in the cockpit and on the float through the window: the gear must be retracted for landing.
The cockpit is now that of Asobo C172 with floats: you will therefore find gear lever, and water drift lever.
Landing on the ground:
Water rudders must be retracted
Ground steering needs to be operated with differential braking (breaking left or right), but I haven't disabled rudder control, so you can still use it.
Several liveries are included with this aircraft:
Delivered by default, blue & gray, thanks to ANN0V
Wendy thanks to 270INC
Red livery and green livery, inspired by the real livery of the C172 seaplanes.
The flight model is based on the work of reaperS73 on the C172 STC 210HP STOL G1000 and allows operation in STOL mode in bush areas.
Where to go to the sea:
Well, of course, anywhere!
You will find a lot of very beautiful personalized places with seaports, pontoons, marinas on flightim.to
If you don't know where to start, check out the pretty Alaskan seaports created by Photosbykev and sjfly2.
About this mod:
The 3D model was made with a Blender from the export of the original Skyhawk G1000 Asobo model.
All external textures and animations had to be redone and correspond to the original definitions.
The floats were modeled from real Wipline models (c)
Many thanks to Newktv's series of developments, which have helped a lot.
Many thanks to EzRyder who figured out how to use the classic MikeFear303 cockpit for the classic XML cockpit and systems trick!
Special thanks to 270INC with the Wendy livery.
