X-Plane 11.30 Experimental Flight Model Mode

Jennifer Roberts

Attention to detail and realism is a priority at Laminar Research. In X-Plane 11.30 we’re striking a balance between cutting edge flight model changes and stability with a new experimental flight model option in General Settings. The “use experimental flight model” checkbox allows developers and users to try the changes for quite a while before they become official. You can toggle the option on and off to preview and provide feedback on the cutting edge changes, or stay with stable version.

The X-Plane 11.30 experimental flight model includes changes to:

  • Downwash modeling
  • Body drag and side force
  • Propeller and propwash modeling
  • Ground effect on helicopter rotors
