The advanced model is made up of 115,000 polygons to achieve maximum detail, but it won't put any unnecessary strain on your computer and wont affect your frame rates. The C337H Skymaster is a very lively aircraft, with lots of moving parts and animations. The landing gear, for instance, goes through several stages to completely extend or retract. It seems there is always something to catch your eye, whether it be the rear mounted propeller or the subtle rumbling and rattling of the exhaust pipes. Never a dull moment with this one. Accompanying would could be classed as two separate models, choosing between either one 3D modeled pilot or two, are five unique liveries that highlight the unusual shape of this aircraft, and offer some nice color variations. On top of that, a blank texture is included for you to use as a base plate should you want to create your own personalized repaints.
Views out of the large cockpit windows offer spectacular views and provide a nice contrast to the fully loaded cockpit panel. The clean black panel houses numerous 3D gauges and a GNS530. Reflection and transparency can be adjust through a custom panel, allowing you to fine tune your visuals as you see fit. Enough light comes in through the windows to keep the cockpit well lit, but the realistic night light effects add greater depth to its 3D elements and keep gauges visible and clear as natural light fades.
Tested by real Skymaster pilots, Carenado have made sure to craft a truly authentic experience. Flight dynamics have been meticulously tweaked to create behavior that accurately represents that of the real thing. Performance, handling, weight and balance all blend together seamlessly. When paired with an original high quality sound set recorded straight from this Skymasters real life counterpart, you're left with an astonishing true to life sensation.

Carenado's flight dynamics are the most realistic of any aircraft in FS. I love just how the aircraft's simulated struts extend and retract when I touch down. This aircraft is very animated! A++ - AirdailyX
