[SU8+ COMPATIBLE] [VR READY] [MODERN/NATIVE] [CLICKABLE] [ANIMATED] [PAINT KIT]
Combining the visibility of a helicopter with outstanding slow-flying capabilities, the original concept for the Edgley EA7 Optica was as a three-seat touring aircraft. Designer John Edgley, at that time began the final aerodynamic design in 1974. The first flight was made on 14 December 1979. The engine drives a five-bladed fixed-pitch ducted fan, and the Optica is thought to be the world's quietest powered aircraft. Mounting the whole cockpit assembly ahead of the fan and engine gives the pilot and passengers 270° panoramic vision, plus almost vertical downward vision; the cockpit canopy design allows photography through the panels. Its internal
cabin permits three-abreast seating, while baggage space and positions for mounting specialized observation equipment are provided behind the seats and in the unrestricted floor area in front of the two passenger seats. Roles for the Optica are virtually unlimited, from the obvious aerial photography and surveillance patrols to traffic reporting, powerline inspection etc. and it has the ability to perform much of a helicopter's work with fixed-wing economy and range.

EA-7 EDGLEY OPTICA NAVIGATION OPTIONS:
#1 - Standard GNS530/GTX330. This option is included in the purchase and is your only navigation system by default. If you have ONLY the "gotfriends-optica" folder in your Community Folder, you will have this by default. This will be the only available option for Xbox users in the future.
#2 - Standard GTN750 (PMS50). This option requires 2 additional downloads. You must download the GTN750 Base Package (Free or Premium) and the GTN750 Replacement Add-on provided by our team. So, in conclusion, you should ONLY have the "gotfriends-optica" folder, "pms50-instrument-gtn750" folder, and "gotfriends-optica-gtn750" folder in your Community Folder. The Standard GTN750 is the basic navigation system that supports User Custom Waypoints.

However, you currently can not use User Custom Waypoints. Also Working Title is a type of technology as well as a development group. This specific technology in the GTN750 is not talking about the Working Title Development Group.
