DA62X Project – a mod to improve de default Diamond DA62

Here’s another mod that aims to improve one of the default aircraft in Flight Simulator (MSFS). This time it’s the Diamond DA62 to get some attention, with an improved flight model, avionics and visuals.

If you’re looking to get a more realistic experience with the DA62, look no further than this mod. One of the key features is the automatic propeller control, which makes the propeller RPM follow the set curve of the real airplane.

Overall, the Diamond DA62X mod Flight Simulator aims to closely replicate the official specs, completely overhauling the aircraft for a very different experience than with the default version. It’s also compatible with the G1000 mod by Working Title, which we’ve told you about before.

Given the current lack of third party aircraft, these mods are a great way to experience something new and more refined than the stock airplanes. If you’re interested in them, also check the XCub mod, the A32NX, Salty’s 747, the CJ4 or the Bonanza Turbo.

Key Features

Automatic propeller control
The Propeller RPM will follow the set curve like the real plane. This acts like single lever control, however it is based on engine power output and not lever position.
Experimental “Mixture control Full FADEC” also included. See PDF for more info
