Aerobatic gliding is perhaps the most complex and demanding of aviation sports. It`s hard enough with an engine but doing it all on kinetic energy demands a very high degree of skill. And a suitable aircraft and finally there is one for FS!

This product shares it`s base with the Discus Glider X (a separate product) that got the most spectacular reviews and even managed to get the AVSIM Gold Star Award!

The Discus is a Standard Class glider created by Schempp-Hirth. It was produced in Germany between 1984 and 1995 and around 850 aircraft are still flying. It is still produced in the Czech Republic in low numbers. With its distinctive swept back leading edge it was rather revolutionary when it was produced and it totally dominated the standard class sailplane racing throughout the 1980s and won the 1985, 1987 and 1989 World Gliding Championships.

Though it is no longer a top contender for the prices (the progress in gliders in the last 10 years is nothing short of amazing), it is still a high performance glider with a 42 to 1 glide ratio. The good natured flight characteristics made it a perfect club glider for the experienced gliders. The later models (though many are retrofitted) had winglets that made the performance and handling better. In Europe it is one of the most prolific gliders and it is very typical of gliders that the thousands of enthusiasts fly every weekend.

The K model was one of the last versions of the Discus and an attempt to create a capable aerobatic contest version. They used one of the prototypes and the Discus K flew for the first time in 1988. It was moderately successful, but for most FSX pilots it will be more than a handful!

The Aerosoft Discus has been create with help from Schempp-Hirth and without a doubt it is the first true high end glider add-on for FS. From the flight model that is near perfect (do note we never used these words for any product before) to the high detail modeling, it’s a product without rivals and without precedent.

Features:

  • Fully professional development (over 20 months).
  • Highly detailed model (for example just the VC has 146384 polygons, more than double of what FS2004 could compile) using all the FSX options.
  • Highly advanced flight model that are accurate even in spins and other no standard attitudes.
  • Over 100 non standard sounds (like flying with open windows, side slips, pending stalls etc) all triggered by FSX variables and conditions using Aerosoft Sound Control.
  • Full working water ballast system.
  • Dozens of non standard animations, up to elements that move under high G load.
  • Very realistic flexing wings created with a new technology.
  • All instruments accurate. Not like this simplified gauges in the default glider in FSX.
  • Real usable yaw string that will make coordinated flight a lot easier.
  • Owners of the Discus Glider X get 30% discount

FSXCENERY - JACKSON–MEDGAR WILEY EVERS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Diane Orton
It's alright, works fine in P3D v4... had to fix the gates, because all the parking spots by the terminal were set as regular GA... no gates were set at all for the airport... but I edited the AFCAD file and fixed the issue. I believe a couple gates are missing, too. According the the terminal map, there should be nine gates from what I can tell, and there were only seven around the terminal building... I was able to fit an eighth gate into the terminal area, but there's really no room for the last one unless the ground markings are changed. All and all, it's fine for the price. WIll likely purchase KMOB, KOKC, and KTUL in the near future...
IRIS PRO TRAINING SERIES - GROB G115E / TUTOR T.1 P3D (DOWNLOAD)
Richard Wraith
WOW doesn't even describe it. Our cadets and staff have been flying the milvis tutor for several years now, and REAL tutors, and I recently upgraded our Sim to P3D v2.5, then installed this aircraft, with NO other addons or tweaks, and it has blown them all away. It looks AMAZING, is exceptionally detailed, realistic and the flight model of it is amazing. Fin-
ally somebody has done the tutor, properly! We-
ll done chaps, jolly good show from all of us over here in Blighty training RAF cadets :-)
AEROSOFT - CRJ 700/900 X FSX P3D
Shanard Letang
It was definitely worth the wait. Good sounds, visuals, and textures. I know there are some issues at the present moment but the AS CRJ works great. There are a few differences from JR CRJ 200, ei, the NW switch that actually moves in the AS CRJ 700/900, startup and shutdown procedures are different to each aircraft. One thing I noticed is the fuel in the CRJ manager does not produce the accurate amount of fuel at times so some additional fuel is require via taxi or holding fuel section. This aircraft is very immersive and fun to fly.
TABURET - FSX P3D NIGHT 3D EUROPE BASE PACK P3D
Johannes Butz
*I own ORBX Global, Vector & OpenLC products that I wanted to enhance with this product* It Illuminates some of the main roads in Europe but not all of them. If you have ORBX Products you'll probably be disappointed. -
I like to fly performance hungry airplanes, wich is why I opted for the "low impact" version of Taburet's night lighting. I guess if you're flying GA or very basic aircraft you'd be better off with buying specific regions of Taburet's Night 3D and if you're like me and you fly FSL A320's or 777/747s AND you don't want to compromise performance, then you're better off with just the ORBX lighting and one click more LOD in my opinion.

MAGMEXICO - MCALLEN MILLER INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Carlo Flores
Excellent. This is my home airport, so I was glad to see that it is for the most part accurate. Only down side is that the gates don't move, but everything else is good. Thanks for making MFE an FSX reality!
LIONHEART - ROBIN DR400/180 FSX P3D
MESTARI Nordin
je viens d'installer cet avion et je suis extrêmement déçu.J'ai fêté cette année mes 40 ans de licence de pilote (réel) et je fais du simulateur depuis une vingtaine d'année. Outre la finition graphique du modèle qui est du niveau des premiers avions de FS9, le modèle de vol est particulièremen-
t bâclé. J'ai testé le décrochage en refusant de rendre la main. l'avion à continué de se cabrer même à vitesse zéro ! (vario négatif quand même) jusqu'à se mettre vertical !!!! jamais vu ça ! puis il a fini par entrer en vrille plate ! le vrai (suivant les modèles) parachuterait avec un fort vario négatif en devenant de plus en plus instable en roulis, mais vous ne maintiendrez jamais le nez au dessus de l'horizon en maintenant le manche au ventre. et vous ne le mettrez jamais dans ces conditions en position vertical. En virage à 60°, à 100 km/h et 2000 trs j'arrive encore à avoir un vario positif ! incroyable. Le modèle de vol (surtout au basse vitesse) est complètement loufoque et donc à l'atterrissage aussi...bizarre-
ment j'avais vu des critiques similaires sur celui de X-Plane et la modélisation ressemble beaucoup à celui de X-plane...En conclusion, cette avion est un pur produit commercial et ne convient pas du tout à un simmeur exigent ou un pilote réel qui veut poursuivre son entrainement à la maison.
SIMTWEAKS - PTA (PREPAR3D TWEAK ASSISTANT) FOR P3D V4
Erich Berner
Every couple of years, one add-on comes along that can never be done without again. This is definitely one of them.
FSXCENERY - KPIT PITTSBURGH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Tom Richey
Great job Fernando! We really needed KPIT for FSX and this hit the spot. Also, happy to report that VAS usage is minimal without the need of removing any files. The only real issue is the Latin signs on the Jetways. Not very convincing in Pittsburgh. -
Best, Tom
