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

MXI DESIGN - LDDU - DUBROVNIK AIRPORT X-PLANE 11
Guillaume
While the terminal is nicely modeled and brings some accuracy to the airport rendition in the X-Plane world, surrounding areas are not depicted, nor the most Eastern part of the airport with missing shelters and details. I'm sure the scenery fits-in nicely in MSFS world, but its coverage is a little limited in X-Plane.

Excellent work, love it! one thing that needs help are the sounds, they need a little more work. looking forward to more.
IRIS SIMULATIONS - AVIATOR SERIES - JABIRU J160/J170 - MSFS
JEREMY
Bought this on Orbx, but it's an excellent aircraft and tons of work and value is contained within. There are currently 2 Bush Trips included (one of them is MASSIVE, had to be split into two!) showcasing Australia. 2 more trips are planned for future updates. The developer is very committed and shows no lack of attention to detail and improving the product. One of the best 3rd party aircraft released for MSFS so far!

I bought this straight from Wing42, but would love to encourage others to get this. Unbelievably fun, lots of attention to detail from the developer. Great documentation, great modeling, and just a joy to experience historic aircraft. Can't go wrong with this!

The Antalya for FSX had a nice approach. The wall on the cliff and the waterfall. Its disappointing they have not added to to this MSFS version. What makes LTAI special is the approach and its missing it looks like. Shame!

As real! nice job. i know someone that work on Ciampino Airport and he say that it's perfect. Everything work, starting from the ILS to the parkings/gates to the taxiway and lights.
NEMETH DESIGNS - MIL MI-35 “SUPER HIND” FSX P3D4

As a fan of helicopters in general but especially with military variations I just had to nab this one. The modeling is fantastic first and foremost. Lots of attention to detail and just about every switch (which there are a great many) is clickable. However there is no info about what the switch is for that usually pops up when moused over. So lots of zooming and guessing. I cannot find any cabin views at all despite the merchant screen shots showing that there are internal cabin views. Also only the cockpits have working doors. Of the two cockpit exits only one works with Shift E. The other requires being clicked on from inside. Problem here though as clicking that same exit docent work to close it. So don’t open until you’re landed and not taking off again. I tried everything to close it and nothing worked. Shift E 2,3,4,5 etc don’t open or close anything. The wipers and fans work but I couldn’t turn off the wiper and the switch was definitely in Off position, yet they kept wiping anyway. Flyi-
ng this modernized Hind is actually really nice and smooth. Despite being lighter than older variants it’s still a heavy machine and takes time to slow. That and being a bit less responsive than say even a Sea Stallion should be expected. It’s fun to fly. There is a highly detailed manual available which will need to be studied a bit in order to understand what the switches all do or don’t do. However nothing in the manual about how to close that stubborn cockpit exit. All in all I’m still glad I bought this despite the strange idiosyncrasies. 4/5 stars Based on use with FSX SE, 3.2ghz i7 16gb ram, 1gb integrated UHD video ram, with on average graphics settings around high. Smooth frame rates even with high detail scenery add on areas.
