New freeware EC-135 under development for X-Plane

Apr 07, 2020 | by Sérgio Costa

A new team is developing a free EC-135 for Laminar Research’s sim, which aims at being as realistic as possible

EC-135 for X-Plane 11

New freeware project on X-Plane 11, a new EC 135 created by passionate members.

We will try to make a most realistic version with our means and knowledge.

At this time the developement are in progress, we work hard on animation, doors, joystick, knob, switch and other stuff.

That is a heck of a project presentation. On our forums the team behind this new project is showing the progress of the project, which is based on a paid, professionally-developed 3D model.

The team, HSF Studio, seems to have access to data and documentation that will help them develop the EC-135, again, to the best of their abilities.

This is their first project so expect them to spend some time learning the ropes as they try to raise their own bar to bring this helicopter to life. As such, don’t expect a date of release anytime soon.

You can find more (and keep on checking their progress) on our forums.
