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

SKY FLYER HANGAR - DIGITAL RUSSIA FAR EASTERN FEDERAL DISTRICT P3D
Михаил Копасов
Look forward uploading Russian Far East,because I was born and grown up there.
AEROSOFT - CATALINA X FSX P3D
Ken Gallant
This still holds up in 2019. It's getting 4 stars because there is a bug with the ADF/DME panels on the civilian post war models. There is a fix in the forums, but it should be in the installer by now as it was discovered years ago at this point. Other than that, I'm very impressed with this aircraft. The civilian post war version has no autopilot, but it's not much of an issue once you have it trimmed out. It's slow enough that if you step away for a few minutes it won't have drifted too far off course. Handles magnificently provided you keep an eye on the engine/oil/carb-
uretor temperatures. Cockpit looks good and sounds good. I recommend this PBY unless you're in a hurry to get somewhere.
FLIGHT SIMULATOR INNOVATIVE ADDONS - FLIGHT SIM FIRST OFFICER - QW 787
Tyrone Headlam
Been using the universal FSIA - FLIGHT SIMULATOR FIRST OFFICER LITE EDITION for the Qualitywings 787 but this edition brings more immersion in the virtual cabin from start to finish.
CLASSICS HANGAR - MESSERSCHMITT BF 108 B TAIFUN
William Sheridan
This is an excellent reproduction of this old aircraft. Its systems (some quite unique and quirky!) have been very well replicated and indeed, in terms of systems depth, it is up there with the best available for FSX. Great fun to fly and very immersive - highly recommended!

REALWORLD SCENERY - 3D PATK TALKEETNA ALASKA FSX P3D
Marco Gabbrielli
get lost in the Alaska wilderness, through this little hub, which offers two landing spots, with very good detail and photorealistic immersion (working well on p3dv4.5) wit-
h an AI traffic utility, the main airport has a lot of activity fin-
ally, get a bush plane and start to explore the Denali glaciers, as an air taxi pilot, what a fun good job, and thanks
RFSCENERYBUILDING - LIPZ VENICE MARCO POLO AIRPORT FSX P3D
Ken McVie
I agree with the earlier reviews about the lack of moving jetways. This spoils an otherwise great version of VCE and one which works beautifully in P3D v.4
PREALSOFT - CASABLANCA AIRPORT GMMN - P3DV4
Ken McVie
This is a beautifully modelled, and up to date, version of Casablanca GMMN. The airport detail (air & land side) is stunning and the gates are fuly operartional with SODE. No frame rate impact and the airport works beautifully on my P3Dv4. My only reason for not giving the full 5* is due to the complete lack of any Casablanca city detailing. The old FS2004 Aerosoft Casablanca airport product of long, long ago included detailed landmarks of the city such as the Hassan II Mosque and sea port. This product has no city detailing at all which is a real shame - especially when taking off from the westerly runways.
