Tom Woods working on a modification of the B407 for X-Plane, shows B407GX

The author of the Bell 429 for X-Plane is working on a modification for the DreamFoil Creations Bell 407 and bringing the G1000H-equipped 407GX to live in the sim.

Tom Woods is on fire. Not only he has released the B429 over two years ago, we also heard he is working on porting the Eagle Rotorcraft Simulations B505 to the sim and he has been showing work on a modification for the DF B407 as well.

The modification equips the DreamFoil model with the G1000H, which is being also modified to work with data from the helicopter, turning it into the 407GX model, the most modern, glass cockpit version of the 407.

Tom also added AviTab support, making this a very sophisticated and high-tech cockpit, which will certainly make a lot of users happy – and perhaps even get DreamFoil some new customers.

Enjoy the video below. We will provide more information as we get it.
