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)

INDIAFOXTECHO - F-35 LIGHTNING II MSFS
Joe
An excellent plane and so happy to have it in the Sim. I did experience some CTDs but turning off tool tip popups for when hovering over switches helped a lot.
SOUTH OAK CO - FS BIRDS - CANADA - EAST MSFS
Ken
Just purchased this and easy fast install. Decided to fly the Trike low and slow in PEI (Prince Edward Island ????????). Wow-
! So many birds flying! In flocks, small groups and individually. Love the hawks circling high above and the pigeons on the field. I buzzed them up high with the drone camera, and literally flew along with the flock! What a great immersive addon. I had USA Southern.
AEROPLANE HEAVEN - SUPERMARINE SPITFIRE MK1A - MSFS
christian
I don't know if the product i buy is updated or not but whatever reason both planes i've bought from Aeroplane Heaven got the same sound issues. They sound great when the engine is in idle or very low RPM but as soon as u rev it up or cruising you can clearly hear the engine sound clip ending and starting over. The rest of the plane is perfect both visually and performance wise but the repeating sound clip just needs to be worked with. On all their planes before they move on to new projects!Also if you cut the engine from outside the cockpit the engine just mutes itselv. It's like youy actually just press the mute button nothing happens besides that
TECHNOBRAIN - FS ADD-ON COLLECTION NEW CHITOSE AIRPORT FSX P3D
Lieuwe
Iam using P3Dv4.5 It is very important to bring RJCC in a higher level in the library! Still it looks like SFX (4 stars), but the quality is good. The 747-400 and F-15J, you have to be lucky when you are at the airport. Iam happy with RJCC, it brings you closer to Alaska, for example.
MP SCENERY - HALF MOON BAY - KHAF MSFS
Brent
Major, major points off for using default ground textures. Ramps, taxiways, runway have no character or realism. Airport modeling is fine, texture work isn't bad - could be a bit better, but not really worth complaining about… ( a few more texture variants on hangars, and less saturated rust textures would have been nice ) Breakwater and boats in the harbor are nice details. I’l-
l give the benefit of the doubt and assume the double radome at Pillar Point is due to me having the “We Love VFR” pack and there's a conflict. Wi-
th a few days work on the ground textures / decals this could be a 5/5 package. Half Moon Bay is a small airport and doesn't have a lot of hangars or structures - so nailing the look and weathering of the ground materials is 75% of the value of the scenery. I hope this is constructive to the developer, and I would re-review in a second, if this package is updated.
ADI S. - LUXURY SPEEDBOAT MSFS

Helps to relax at sunset somewhere on Lake Como or similar ))
SCENERYTR - LTAC ANKARA ESENBOĞA AIRPORT -MSFS

A great airport addon for MSFS. High quality work everywhere covering a vast area and many buildings. Well worth the asking price.
PEARL SIMULATIONS 2 - PHTO - HILO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
Efstathios
Since I cannot delete my previous review. I followed Enrique's guidance regarding the Content.xml file located in the LocalCache root. That seems to have fixed the issue. Please take some time to update the textures and FPS drops and this would be golden.
TABURET - HAWAII 10 M DEM MSFS
Andy
I live in Hawai'i (on O'ahu, in Kāne'ohe near PHNG), and the Taburet Hawai'i 10M DEM and Waterways are an absolute MUST to make the default scenery look better. This addon was recently updated, and all of the airports that were affected (bumpy / roller-coaster runways) were fixed. In addition, the resolution of Lana'i (PHNY) was adjusted to just 5M! I can't wait until better resolution mapping is available for the entire state. Feel free to message me for any questions! XBGT: Latka.
