This is a modification to the MSFS 2020 default Asobo C172SP AS1000 Floats aircraft, which is the seaplane variant of the G1000 C172SP. The mod does not change the standard or ski variants.
This mod is primarily aimed at improving the overall flight dynamics and water performance of this aircraft, providing a more realistic flying experience that is much closer to the actual aircraft. Multiple changes have been made to the engine and flight model parameters, the flotation contact points, and the aircraft weight and balance, which are all detailed in the Change Log file included under the Documentation folder. A full PDF copy of the aircraft POH, and some helpful tips for operating this aircraft are also included under the Documentation folder.
This mod is easily installed by simply unzipping the download file and copying the mge-asobo-aircraft-c172sp-as1000-floats folder to the MSFS Community folder. It will then replace the existing default C172SP Floater aircraft in the MSFS aircraft selection screen, and will also continue to utilize any existing aircraft Liveries. To uninstall the mod and return to using the MSFS default aircraft, simply remove it from the Community folder.
