FGUK Bo105 for FlightGear

So, no, this is not a new model, but that’s not a bad thing, obviously. The good folks at FGUK love taking the opportunity to improve on whatever they can get their hands on and the Bo105 is a great example.

Picking up the original helicopter, the team decided to bring it up a few notches and make it more to their liking and level of detail. Beware, though, this is still a beta version that FGUK is releasing as Early Access.

Here are the changes FGUK made to the Bo105:

  • Fully texture mapped with livery selection.
  • 19 included liveries.
  • 9 Mission configuration options.
  • Fully reworked interior with detailed instrument panel.
  • All external lights are activated from the overhead panel. As this is quite an awkward position in sim, a specific view has been provided for the overhead.
  • Compositor external lighting.
  • Livery specific levels of fuselage reflection.
  • ALS Rain on Glass effects, and Rotor wash on grass.
  • Some sounds alterations (still more to do).
