TorqueSim and X-Aviation are excited to announce the release of the Turbine Islander this Friday (January 29th)!
We’re pleased to finally present our rendition of the BN-2T to you.
What began as a simple conversion grew into a completely new aircraft. This is the culmination of efforts spanning nearly four months, including updates to the 3d model, textures, texture mapping, FMOD sound pack, plugins, flight model, and many more small fixes and changes. If you enjoyed the BN-2, you’ll find the turbine version an absolute joy to fly!
You can see our preview flight of the aircraft here!
Many of the upgrades built for the 2T will also find their way into our BN-2 in the near future in the form of update 1.2. We very much look forward to sending that out as well.
We’ll share final details for the Turbine Islander throughout the days prior to release. If you haven’t subscribed to our email list, make sure to subscribe here so you can stay up to date with all our projects!
You can also find us on our Discord server and all the usual social media sites!
