DISCUS 

Do not think that gliders are boring and silent machines. The Discus is capable of speeds, altitudes, range and aerobatics that make most GA aircraft envious. Of course you can choose to make flights of many hours but you can also find some ridge lift and play around for a while. The Aerosoft Discus is a high end simulation of a high end glider.

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 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 models that is near perfect (do note we never used these words for any product before) to the C4 Flight Computer that is the heart of the instruments it is all so accurate that we feel 100% confident to provide the customer with the 'real' manuals, of course with permission of the copyright owners. There are ten models included but they can be divided into three base models. We got four B models that are pure gliders, four BT models that got a small engine that allows the pilot to cruise between thermals and two BM models that allow the pilot to take off on its own power. All ten models got different flight models. As FSX does not allow any motorized aircraft to be air towed we even include the very realistic WinchX! add-on that simulates a which launch down to the smallest details. This is a very complete project that will give you all options modern glider pilots got.

Features:

  • Fully professional development (over 20 months).
  • Ten high detail models (for example just the VC of the BT model has 146384 polygons, more than double of what FS2004 could compile) using all the FSX options.
  • Highly advanced flight models 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.
  • Two Static ports (with selector) to avoid problems when using the auxiliary engines.
  • 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, including TEC and NETTO variometers. Not like this simplified gauges in the default glider in FSX.
  • Real usable yaw string that will make coordinated flight a lot easier.
  • All models include a highly realistic C4 Flight Computer that allows then pilot to calculate ideal speeds and routes.
  • Includes a licensed copy of Winch X! .
  • Designed with full support of Schempp-Hirth, SDI Variomers and the SOAR online glider community.
  • Includes a FSX manual (English) and the actual 'real' manuals for the gliders and C4 Flight Computer (English and German)
  • Manuals included as a .pdf-file :
    1x FSX Manual (English)
    3x Original Glider Manuals (English, German)

My pet peeve with DD is they refuse to blend their work to ORBX Global textures, i raised this frustration with their Vol.5 Polish Airports pack released in Jan this year...being a v2 product effectively youd hope that they would have thought okay heres an area to improve on...But no so their work sticks out like a sore thumb on approach and departure. Here the airport looks great, good texturing with room for improvements but a decent effort indeed.

After an initial installation mistake on my part--cleared up by the developer, who replied to my email in about TEN MINUTES--I am absolutely loving this addon. I've flown the first lesson, basic instrument maneuvers, twice. It is difficult but doable, exactly as it should be. Gives you a real sense of accomplishment to get it right. Can't wait to move on to the next lesson.

INDIAFOXTECHO - LONG EZ - MSFS
Emanuele
Nice model very essential extremely light a little retro' inside, the good thing of this model is one time that you trim the airplane you can forget the commands, , good turns also very tight in acrobatics, fast in the speed shooting, but a little bit stiff in the tonneau and in the looping in totally is a good plane for have fun

Really well detailed, but in order to make it look as realist as Medellin area you really must follow the instructions for Autogen etc. I have Pilots Mesh and Orbx global and LC South America vectors and it blends flawless.

Bought this airport in September 2019. While visually well done -- accurate and pleasing, it is an inconsistent performer. Framerates sink to single digits on approach at dusk and can vary greatly (~60 to the teens) from the gate to departure and pattern ALT. Good purchase overall for me, but consider the performance. My machine is a Intel i7-6900K32GB RAM, GTX 1080Ti which generally has no problems with this level of scenery complexity.
