Dynamic ground roll sounds for everyone

The C172SP introduced the Dynamic Ground Roll Sounds. With v3.1.1 this new feature is made freely available to all the other Reality Expansion Packs.

If you don’t know what Dynamic Ground Roll Sounds are, look the video below. Those are sounds calculated basing on the current speed, position and gear forces of the aircraft.

Cool stuff for the Cessna 172

Custom stall warning sound

Default Cessna 172 comes with the wrong stall horn. Therefore, we replaced that with a custom pneumatic stall warning that resembles the real C172 stall horn sound.

Custom gyro drift

Default C172 does not simulate gyro drift. As a result, navigation was not realistic. Now, the directional gyro drifts basing on your speed and position.
