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

Customer Reviews
DAZZLE COLOUR GAME - MOHE GULIAN AIRPORT ZYMH FSX P3D4
Fulvio Arman
Well, if compared to its price, it's a decent price; I purchased it just for its geographical position interesting for my tours. Cons; flickering in the fences. The overall appeal is something more than a freeware. In conclusion, purchase it only if you need it.
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - SEATTLE CITY X FOR FSX P3D
Andrew Birg
Was worried about performance when used with the airports package... but was completely blown away with better performance than with the default when installed. It is a must for flying in and out of Seattle. Honestly the best city package period. Must buy!
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - SEATTLE CITY X FOR FSX P3D
Aro Delahunty
Not so great when using alone but together with Seattle Airports this is probably the best bundle for FS I've seen so far. The area is huge, there is an amazing amount of details and FPS is actually better than in the default scenery (FSX:SE and P3Dv4). Not only the downtown area is covered with custom buildings but also many more areas, even MS campus and Bellevue. The large area looks great on approaches to every airport from the Airports pack. Both products highly recommended. Looking forward to their upcoming city products.
FSPS - MULTICORE NEXT FSX
KIM SIBBRITT
Purchased this product a few days ago,& it deserves to be commented on. FSX is very heavily CPU dependant. By default it assigns FSX to Core no.1 only. With Multicore Next I have been able to assign it to ALL 6 Cores on my computer. The improvement has been VAST. FSX is running smoother, Landclass Textures, Trees & Autogen are all drawing in faster,& my Frame Rates have improved. So if like me you have spent a huge amount of time & money on your FSX,& don't want to start all over again with P3D,I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product. It has made big difference to my FSX. Kim.
LATINVFR - KEY WEST KEYW V2 FSX P3D
Aro Delahunty
Even though it was published 3 years ago it is still a beautiful product. I love water textures around the island and plenty of details on the apron (humans, vehicles, planes). Also it is great that the whole airport surrounding is included with many non-airport buildings and very good autogen annotation. The location is gorgeous and the product is very well done.
DIGITAL DESIGN - TENERIFE-SOUTH P3D4
Darren Crosby
I was waiting for GCTS for sometime. It was worth the wait. the scenery is excellent, kind on FPS and the attention to detail is on par with other top scenery designer's. I also purchased Mallorca, and Ibiza at the same time. You wont be disappointed.
AEROSOFT - LUKLA X MOUNT EVEREST FSX P3D
Chuck Poole
On my system (W10 i5 4gb VR 16GB System Ram)it would not work in FSX-SE and then after upgrading to Prepar3d v4 I had the same problem. The problem is fractured landscape and misplaced buildings. The plane started sticking out of solid rock. The runway was way off heading. In other words, it was a total disaster and and completely usable. It's been like that for some time.
TOPCAT - Take-Off and Landing Performance Calculation Tool
Matthew Marshall
Whilst this app was great a few years ago, it simply hasn't kept up with the times, for example, there aren't options for the PMDG 777-300ER. Unfortunately, due to this, it has limited lifetime and competitors such as TOPS are actively integrating more aircraft.
FSPS - FSX BOOSTER LIVE 2018
Kelly hanlon
Was a bit leery of this, but purchased to try. Love it, it will not get you more frames all the time, but what it will do is allow you to slide the slider towards more frames when you are coming into land at a complex airport and get an extra 10 fps out of it (mileage will vary). Really not a bad buy. One slider and that is it...simple.
