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

VOIE BLEU - EBCI CHARLEROI BRUSSELS SOUTH P3DV4
MICHAEL SIMON
Excellent! Very realistic! The frame rate is better on this version than on the previous! The new terminal (T2) is there and is very beautiful! This product really deserves 5 stars!
MWP PROJECTS - X ATMOENGINE XP11
TS Brady
I'm not impressed. The water looks horrible, much prefer XP11 default. The clouds are nice, better than XP11 default, but the sky is too misty/foggy. Almost every weather situation, except clear skies give a very hazy sky. The price isn't bad, but I'm underwhelmed by what you get. In fact, I've uninstalled X AtmoEngine end re-installed SkyMaxx Pro v4.
SKY SIMULATIONS - MCDONNELL DOUGLAS DC-9 P3D
raul romero
DO NOT BUY! Less than 30 min into it and all ready want a refund. Virtua-
l cockpit visual quality is from like fs9 era. click on any circuit breaker and other switches move. left click does nothing on some switches but on other does something. 3 position switches move like they are 2 position switches. Same cockpit sound ALL the time regardless of power input or stage of flight. Extrem-
ely not satisfied with this product. Should be a Freeware in my opinion.
MWP PROJECTS - ATMOENGINE PLUGIN P3D4
Tristan Hancock
Everything looks really nice, but I am most definitely NOT noticing an FPS Boost, the opposite infact. For the first time my fps tend to go and remain under 20 fps in certain situations.(i7--
7700k @ 4.5Ghz + GTX1080).
MWP PROJECTS - ATMOENGINE PLUGIN P3D4
Nicolas Ruchonnet
Amazing product, quite striking realism Just a small concern for the installation that was quickly settled with the team, I was very impressed by the speed of their response and their effectiveness. -
I highly recommend it
FLYTAMPA - FLYMONTREAL V1 TO V2 UPGRADE P3D4
rhamses acosta
wow what a huge difference from v1 .Flytampa is awesome,other developers should upgrade their products like this.
FSXCENERY - KROC GREATER ROCHESTER AIRPORT FSX P3D
Robert Miller
This airport is now out of date due to the renovations that completed late 2018. Before that, the airport itself was okay, but the surrounding "photoreal" region is blurry and the autogen seems to be non-existent. In fact it is flat land all around the airport and then the default autogen pops in about 3 miles away from the airport. Als-
o, progressive taxi does not appear to work with the airport. This doesn't affect me that much as I know the airport layout well, but those unfamiliar may have a difficult time taxiing to the 3 runways. I'v-
e tried contacting the developer to help with both the autogen and progressive taxi issue on 1/5 and was told that they were taking a MONTH off for Christmas vacation and said they would contact me when they got back. I emailed them again on 2/5 and have still yet to hear back (and have a feeling I won't). Save your money and don't get this airport, even on sale - you'll just end up disabling the scenery like I did.
FLYTAMPA - VIENNA LOWW V.2 FSX P3D FS2004
Gregory Verba
Another great airport from Flytampa. The detailing level is very good. Seasonal ground changes, dynamic lighting, sode implementation adds huge amount of immersion. The scenery highly optimized and performance is on the top.
FSDG - CAPE TOWN FSX P3D
Gregory Verba
It is my first FSDG scenery and I am totally surprised regarding high level of details. The scenery detailing is great. Performance optimization is very good (tested with p3d v4.4). Sode jetways and animation working flawlessly. I give it solid 5 star. Highly recommended!
AEROSOFT - MEGA AIRPORT PRAGUE FSX P3D
Gregory Verba
I didn't have any issues with installer like other users had. The installation process was fast and worked flawlessly. Although the scenery itself is very good and performance is great, I cannot give it 5 stars mainly because of some textures level and lack of sode implementation.
