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

ottimo prodotto, molto bello, modificata quasi l'intera città e aeroporti, tanti punti di riferimento da visitare.

Nice model but something is wrong with the weight calculation. With the normal weights it's for me total unstable to fly. After reducing the weight of the pilot to 8 lbs ;) the aircraft flies stable and is also easy to control. So it’s fun to fly. An own pilot model would be nice. And a revision of the motor sound and the brake noise would be great. At the moment i giving the aerolite 3 stars.

Another very nice airport by the developer. Nice gates, textures are crisp and clean, terminal is alive. Nice job!

Very nice airport for the price. Likely worth more based on the other airports here...Very detailed, nice texture. Definitely worth it. Another place to stop around the alps.

Great spot to start a Puerto Rico or longer Caribbean tour. Scenery has good performance, good texture quality, and nice buildings.
INDIAFOXTECHO - LONG EZ - MSFS
James
I genuinely want to give this aircraft more stars but in its current state, it feels more like a proof of concept than a complete experience. Comparing it to the payware rendition of this aircraft on the X-Plane store, this one feels very limited. I'd love this to be fitted with a landing light and a much better cockpit light. The current cockpit light bleeds onto the left canard and is extremely bright to the point of being unusable during flight. While I realize the intention of this aircraft is mostly VFR, the Long-EZ was famed for its use in the "Around the world in 80 nights" tour which undoubtedly saw it sporting equipment for night flight. I trust this developer to continue to improve this aircraft, and they have already come a long way in doing so. I suspect the next update will bump it up to 4 stars at least.

I'm hoping this addon becomes worthwhile in the future - from what I can see from the images, the 3D model looks good, but the external and cockpit textures are amateurish, at best. It's using what appears to be all the instruments/avi-
onics from the default A320, which might be acceptable - for a VERY short while. Not sure why "thrust reversers" are listed as a feature as the IRL Typhoon does not have them. All in all, while I'd really like to support this new Dev, esp since it's a .mil aircraft, the value for money simply isn't where it needs to be. Bring the price WAY down while you fix the issues and update the work.

The only thing holding me back from 5 stars is the price. For such a simple aircraft, I feel it's a bit too expensive. That said, this aircraft is a dream to fly and has quickly become my go-to for sight-seeing any time I fly. The visual modeling is great, the sound is good, and it handles well. I do wish there was an option to model the pilot's arms/legs as looking forward/down and not seeing them does break the immersion. I'd also love to have a bit more to do in the "cockpit" as it were, maybe a simple GPS strapped to one one side of the frame which would help when navigating unfamiliar terrain, but I realize the SDK is fairly limited right now. It'd also be nice to have to maintain the engine or something just to justify the price a bit more, but that may also be impossible currently.

Very beautiful scenery! if you like Alaska panorama and the "life below zero" tv series you must have it if you don't like it, you must have it anyway
