âThe EA-7 Edgley Optica is a British designed aircraft for low speed and long range observation work.
With a cockpit similar to that of helicopters; The Optica offers a 270-degree panoramic view and an almost vertical downward view. With a strolling speed of 81 mph, around 40% power, the Optica’s fuel tanks can fly up to almost 8 hours and have a range of over 650 miles.
Orbx faithfully recreated the aircraft with a high level of model and texture detail, engine and cockpit sounds, a fully interactive and clickable cockpit, comprehensive checklists and a realistic flight model including the system ballast from the Optica.
With the panoramic views that the Optica offers, it’s the perfect plane for exploring Orbx Landmark City packs, airports and regions, especially in VR.
The pack comes with several representative paint schemes of aircraft still located around the world, including a unique observation skin with a front camera model.
The feeling of freedom with the cockpit views is unmatched and an airplane you should have in your hangar to explore the world in Microsoft Flight Simulator.
