The worlds largest airliner, capable of carrying up to 853 passengers, more than 70 million people have flown on the Airbus A380 to locations around the globe. This RF7 10% scale variation of the Airbus A380_EA by ViennaLex76 is meticulously tuned for the ultimate scale airliner flight experience. The color scheme shown in the screen shots below is A380 Luster_CS.

Size has been increased to an exact 10% scale. Weight and power increased accordingly. A custom sound mix adds to the jumbo jet realism. Animated turbine blades respond to initial throttle increase and to the kill command (k). A 4-way elevator mix keeps everything tuned up for all combinations of flaps, gear, and throttle. A separate steering mix makes take-off steering a breeze while still giving you a nice tight turn radius for taxi. Air brake control has been mixed with flaps, with a gear override, so they never deploy when the gear is up (control details below). Max speed level flight = 175 mph. Best approach speed 40 to 50 mph. Extremely steep approaches possible with air brakes deployed.
If you’ve flown the original EA, or previous variants, there are a few control differences you should be aware of. The gear has been normalized to work the same as all other Real Flight aircraft (pull right 2 pos switch toward you to lower gear). Left 2 position switch is standard dual rates. Recommend low rates for a true scale flight experience. High rates if you want to “hot dog” around with a jumbo jet. The 3 position switch turns on the air brake system which is then controlled by the flaps (rotary knob). 3 pos switch down = no air brakes, center = half air brakes, up = full air brakes. The gear provides a safety override for air brakes. When your gear is up, air brakes will not deploy regardless of switch position. Wheel brakes have not changed - engage with forward elevator.
This is the second AV I’ve done on one of ViennaLex76’s EAs (also did a 3D version of the “Back to the Future” DeLorean (DeLorean BTTF2 3Dmax_AV). I just want to commend ViennaLex76 for absolutely excellent EAs both graphically and physically. They really are top notch.
