This Shergood 305 is an SL reproduction of the classic Brantly 305 helicopter. The Brantly 305 was originally introduced in the 1960s. It uses a 305hp fuel-injected six cylinder horizontally opposed Lycoming IVO-540 engine. The 305 seats five and has wheels for ground taxi.

The SA-FE (Shergood Aviation Flight Engine) engine driving this virtual reproduction is the most advanced and realistic in SL. It was designed and created by an RL helicopter pilot. The engine is purely physics based and features independent control of cyclic, collective, throttle and anti-torque pedals enabling true power-off autorotations. Features include:

  • Shergood Flight System
  • Working yaw string can be used as reference to coordinate cyclic and pedal inputs.
  • Working electrical system with rechargeable battery.
  • Refueling system with fuel quantity control
  • Realistic piston helicopter sounds
  • Accessible engine compartment
  • Fully functioning dual controls
  • Paint kit system for user customizable painting
  • Dust/water effects when hovering near a surface
  • Free upgrades
