New Model for free download - Sikorsky Firefly.

The Firefly is a demonstrator based on the old Hughes S-300 and fitted with a 190hp electric motor and powered by lithium-ion batteries. The expected endurance is only 15 minutes but will improve exponentially as new batteries (possibly lithium-air anodeless) push the flying time to over 3 hours and beyond. It is claimed that the Firefly as it stands already represents a huge 300% improvement in propulsion efficiency. RC Helicopter flyers will note that the 15 minutes flight duration is about the same as the average electric RC helicopter - also running on lithium (polymer) batteries.

This PRE-Flight model of this soon-to-make-history aircraft is full of accurate detail - even to the sound of the almost whisper-quiet electric motor.

New Scenery for free download - Titanic.

The "Ship of Dreams", the RMS Titanic, is the most famous ship in history. The largest passenger ship of the time, she departed England on her maiden voyage on the 10th April 1912, and sank after hitting an iceberg resulting in the loss of 1,517 people.

The PRE-Flight Titanic model is full-scale (269 meters long), high-quality (345874 polygons) and accurately depicts the Titanic on her fateful voyage - from her bronze propellers, thru the 9 highly-detailed decks (some decks with realistic wooden plank texture), and to the pennants that she was flying on the day she sank. It contains hundreds of tiny details like the brass bell that the lookout used to signal the approach of the fatal iceberg, the radio transmitter wiring, even a genuine Titanic-style lounge chair.

The PRE-Flight Titanic Scenery is actually 3 scenries in 1. The first where the Titanic model is stationary for detailed exploring. The second scenery has the Titanic running at cruising speed and grazing an iceberg. And lastly, the 3rd scenery has the Titanic sinking. This release also makes available an updated version of PRE-Flight's UFO which makes an excellent camera platform (press F11) to explore the Titanic. Any PRE-Flight aircraft can also be flown in the scenery - make high-speed overhead passes with the Pitts Biplane, hover with the helicopters for a close look, or even try your hand at bombing a 269-meter moving target with the B2 or B-29.

New Model for free download - Hitler's Stealth Fighter (Horten Ho 229)
The Horten Ho 229 was the favorite of Hitler's Luftwaffe chief, Hermann Goering, calling it the only aircraft to come close to his "1000,1000,1000" requirements - meaning an aircraft that could carry 1000kg of bombs a distance of 1000km at a speed of 1000km/hr.

The plane that "might have changed the war" is presented by PRE-Flight as a super scale model with highly detailed weapons and moveable controls. An unusual sister model (included) is a variant with stealthy transparent skin which makes internal details (like landing gear and cannons) visible.

New Model for free download - Republic P-47 Thunderbolt
The Republic P-47 Thunderbolt (the "Jug" - short for Juggernaut, according to the British) was superlative in many ways. It was the largest, heaviest, and most expensive piston-powered fighter fighter in history. Its 8 50-caliber machine guns made it especially adept against light ground targets, and its 2,500-pound bomb load was effective against heavy tanks.

This super scale PRE-Flight model of the "Jug" has highly detailed weapons and moveable controls. As usual with PRE-Flight models, the Thunderbolt can be "painted" to reproduce many different paint jobs.

New Model for free download - Messerschmitt Me 262
The Messerschmitt Me 262 Schwalbe ("Swallow") was the world's first operational jet fighter. Its maximum speed of over 900kph and tremendous rate of climb of 1200 m/min made it a deadly opponent for even the fastest Allied aircraft. Fortunately, it was available only in small numbers - not enough to change the outcome of World War II.

This super scale PRE-Flight model of the Me 262 has highly detailed weapons and moveable controls. As usual with PRE-Flight models, the Me 262 can be "painted" to reproduce many different paint jobs.

New Model for free download - Gotha G.V
As WWI unfolded, the concept of the "battle plane" - a heavily-armed fighter - materialized in the German Gotha series. This proved no match to the nimble and more lightly-armed fighters and the Gotha was quickly and successfully converted to bomber duty. This was a very timely move, as the lumbering Zeppellins were proving vulnerable to Allied defences.

This super scale PRE-Flight model of the Gotha has highly detailed weapons and moveable controls as well as a very-detailed cockpit and wooden propellers. The control linkages are external to the fuselage, in line with the design conventions of the day. As usual with PRE-Flight models, the Gotha can be "painted" to reproduce many different paint jobs.

New Model for free download - Ju 87 Stuka.
The Junkers Ju 87 Stuka (from German Sturzkampfflugzeug, "dive bomber") was designed from the beginning, as a dive bomber and this role it performed brilliantly. It was capable of very precise bombing - diving up to 90-degree angles then automatically pulling out of the dive after bomb-release. This automatic feature was required as pulling from the 600kph-plus dive usually blacked-out the pilot.

This super scale PRE-Flight model of the Stuka has highly detailed weapons and moveable controls. As usual with PRE-Flight models, the Stuka can be "painted" to reproduce many different paint jobs as the Stuka found service in almost all fronts.

New Model for free download - MQ-9 Reaper.
The General Atomics MQ-9 Reaper is truly the deadliest Radio-Control (RC) aircraft ever made. This Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) can carry a payload of 1,700kg and has a maximum endurance of 42 hrs (with external tanks) making it a truly effective attack and surveilance craft. RC'ers will recognize the single-piece, flexible main landing gear which is so common in smaller, less lethal RC airplanes because of its simplicity.

This download is actually 2 models in one: a 1/4th scale model and the full-sized Reaper with 20-meter wing span. The super scale PRE-Flight models of the Reaper features super-high detail, Paveway laser-guided bombs, accurate operating landing gear, moveable control surfaces, and even a rotating "eyeball" camera. These models can be "painted" to reproduce the ever-growing number of Reaper variants in several countries.

New Model for free download - F4U Corsair.
The Chance Vought F4U Corsair is the longest production run of any piston-powered fighter in US history. First flown in 1942, the Corsair was not initially popular due to its unsuitability for carrier landings, earning it the name "bent wing widow-maker" due to numerous landing incidents. However, its superior fighting performance earned it the Japanese nickname of "Whistling Death", for the noise made by airflow through the wing root-mounted oil cooler air intakes.

This super scale PRE-Flight model of the Corsair is composed of almost 120,000 polygons - making it one of the most realistic models available. Total model size is over 17MB (8.8MB zipped). It has realistic operating landing gear and moveable controls. This model can be "painted" to reproduce any of the Corsairs of the 7 countries and 2 major conflicts where it found service.

New Model for free download - F-4 Phantom.
The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II is the most numerous American supersonic military aircraft ever. It also holds the record for the longest continuous production (24 years) for a fighter. When first flown in 1960, it had advanced pulse-doppler radar and made extensive use of titanium in its airframe - the first time in any jet fighter.

This super scale PRE-Flight model of the Phantom has operating landing gear, afterburning jets, moveable controls (including stabilator), and operating landing hook. This model is in standard US Navy livery but can be "painted" to reproduce any of the Phantoms of the 11 countries where it found service.

New Model for free download - Mitsubishi Zero.
The Mitsubishi Zero was hugely feared in the beginning of World War II with its appearance in the attack at Pearl Harbor. It appeared superior in every way to the US warplanes - maneuverability, speed, endurance and firepower. It was only after discovering its Achilles' heel - lack of armor - that the US forces were able to keep Japan from total air superiority over the Pacific theater.

This detailed, super scale PRE-Flight model of the deadly Zero has operating control surfaces and landing gear.

New Model for free download - Ford Trimotor.
The design of the Ford Trimotor certainly proves that they didn't think much of aerodynamics in 1925. Its all-metal corrugated skin was all about strength and low weight, resulting in a rugged design able to carry up to nine passengers plus pilot, co-pilot and stewardess.

This hugely detailed, super scale PRE-Flight model of the Trimotor has operating control surfaces, period external control wires, and unique corrugated aluminum skin.

New Model for free download - F-104 Starfighter.
Called the "missle with a man in it", the Lockheed F-104 Starfighter was one of the more extreme jet fighter designs which adopted a minimalist architechture- fitting the smallest possible airframe around one of the most powerful engines available in the 1950's. The result was a plane that was more starship than jet fighter.

This super scale PRE-Flight model of the Starfighter has operating landing gear and afterburning jet.

New Model for free download - Marine One Sea King.
Helicopter builder Sikorsky built the Sea King in 1957, beginning a long career as a submarine hunter-killer, then diversifying into search and rescue, as well as executive transport. Designated the SH-3, the Sea King was designed for shipboard operation with folding rotor blades, as well as amphibious operation. Weapons capability was equally diverse, from torpedoes and missiles, to sonobouys for sub hunting.

This super scale PRE-Flight model of the Sea King has a five-bladed rotor, operating landing gear, and Presidential Marine One livery.

New Model for free download - General Dynamics F-111.
The F-111 was designed in an era where "cost was not an issue" - resulting in an aircraft featuring pioneering and expensive technologies like variable-geometry wings, afterburning turbofan engines and terrain-following radar. So advanced was the F-111 that it inspired the fictional aircraft in the "Thunderbirds" series as well as real Soviet swing-wing designs.

This super scale PRE-Flight model of the F-111 has variable-geometry swing-wings, operating landing gear, and twin afterburning jets.

New Model for free download - Fokker Dr.1 Triplane.
Easily the most famous of all World War I planes, the Fokker Dreidecker (triplane), was designed by Reinhold Platz and built by Fokker-Flugzeugwerke as a response to the success of the British Sopwith Triplane. Used to deadly effect by Manfred von Richthofen (aka "The Red Baron"), the plane gained notoriety beyond what was actually a very frail and unstable aircraft.

This super scale PRE-Flight model of the Triplane has moveable control surfaces, a realistic Oberursel rotary engine, and highly detailed weaponry.

New Model for free download - Fokker Eindecker.
Designed by Dutch engineer Anthony Fokker, the Eindecker or "monoplane" in English, was the first plane to be fitted with a gun/propeller synchronizer gear which allowed its machine gun to fire thru the propeller arc. So advanced was this feature that it started the "Fokker Scourge" where the Allied planes became "Fokker Fodder" for the early German Aces.

This super scale PRE-Flight model of the Eindecker has moveable control surfaces and a realistic Oberursel rotary engine (in which the cylinders rotated with the prop - resulting in a difficult airplane to master).

New Model for free download - Boeing B-29 Superfortress.
Called "The Plane that Won the War", the Boeing B-29 Superfortress was one of the most advanced bombers of its time - featuring innovations like remote-controlled gun turrets and a fully pressurized cabin. So advanced was its design that it was used long after its first flight in 1942 - it was only retired from service in the 1960s. It was also copied down to the rivets by the Soviet Union and called the Tupolev Tu-4.

This super scale PRE-Flight model of the B-29 is composed of over 107,000 polygons, and has full moveable control surfaces, retractable landing gear, revolving gun turrets (controlled by the rudder channel), detailed interior visible in the aircraft views, and special reflective paint and markings of "Enola Gay".

Focke-Wulf Triebflugel.
The Focke-Wulf Triebflugel's tailsitter design coupled with the ramjet-powered rotor made it one of the most unique aircraft ever concieved. It had only reached wind-tunnel testing when the allied forces put an end to its development - no flying prototype was ever built.

This PRE-Flight model of the Triebflugel has an operating rotor, animated flame at the ramjet exhausts and even "3D" sound coming from the rotating engines. Flying the model is similar to flying a helicopter, up to the point where enough forward speed enables the model to fly more like a conventional aircraft. As in the real thing, landing is exceptionally challenging.

SpaceShipOne Model and Screensaver

On the 4th of October the year 2004, aviation and space history was made as Brian Binnie, a 51-year-old former navy pilot, piloted Scaled Composite's SpaceShipOne - the first commercial spaceship. An hour after landing, Burt Rutan - owner of Scaled Composites claimed the $10 million X Prize purse offered by Ansari.

The feat is likened to Lindbergh claiming the $25,000 Orteig Prize after making his solo transatlantic flight in 1927.

Like the Spirit of St. Louis, SpaceShipOne will herald a new, golden age where space flights will become as routine as air travel is today.

To commemorate this event, PRE-Flight is pleased to announce the SpaceShipOne Screen Saver and Flying Simulator.

SpaceShipOne from Scaled Composites

This is the frontrunner in the XPrize race to build the first cheap, commercial spacecraft. Designed by Burt Rutan of Scaled Composites, SpaceShipOne is carried aloft by WhiteKnight and is released after which it fires its rocket engine to boost itself to over 100km.

In this 1/4th scale model, you take off as the WhiteKnight carrying SpaceShipOne as a conventional plane. Then press 'X' to release, then 'B' to fire the rocket booster on SpaceShipOne (assume a high-angle attitude first).

My personal best is an altitude of 3800 meters before gliding down to land on the original runway where you took off. This is after a release from 100 meters without changing the default rocket settings. Booster rocket characteristics can be changed in Menu Model, Quick Edit, Engine Tab.

Read the included readme.txt file for more options and info.
