HeadShake camera plugin


HeadShake is an X-Plane 11 camera plugin which adds some nice POV effects while flying in virtual cockpit view. It is available for Windows, Linux and Mac 64 bit.


G-Force effects

Basing on the g forces currently acting on the airplane, the cockpit view is moved around to simulate the pilot head’s inertia. The movements are filtered to avoid sudden shifts so the entire experience is really smooth.
