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

ON-NEXT DEVELOPMENT GMBH - SIMSOUNDS - FSX P3D
Michael Haferkamp
Excellent software ! Adds a lot of immersion to the sim. Sounds can be adjusted easily to users needs. Highly recommended !
FLYSIMWARE - FALCON 50 FSX P3D
Robert Yunque
The best corporate jet available for P3Dv4 by far. I have had this Falcon 50 since it was released for public beta and have really enjoyed it. It flies beautifully by hand or with the autopilot, is not difficult to learn, is consistently stable, has a great and accurate autopilot that works great with the Flight1 GTN 750(and many others). Unlik-
e Captain Sim or Carenado, Flysimware is not known for their outstanding fidelity with cockpit textures, but what they miss in textures they make up in system depth and realism. On the other hand the Falcon 50 is a big improvement in Flysimware's cockpit and cabin textures from previous work. They are definitely improving in that arena. As it is, I'm perfectly satisfied with the looks of the cockpit when I'm enjoying the great flight characteristics and system depth of this Falcon 50. The Falcon 50 is very much worth having and addictive to fly.

PILOT'S FSG - FS GLOBAL REAL WEATHER 64 BIT P3D4 X-PLANE 11
Jeffrey Scharpf
In my opinion, the best weather program for P3D4. Very easy to setup, no performance hit whatsoever. I'm guessing that this is because you aren't installing all kinds of textures. It uses the existing game textures (I think?). P3D4 looks beautiful out of the box, so no need for extra textures (again this is just my opinion). You simply download the latest weather one time before your flight, start your flight, and it will keep the weather up to date for your entire flight. I simply forget that it is still running. Impor-
ting a flight plan allows you to view all of the winds and temperatures at each waypoint. If you run FS Captain, this program integrates very well with it. Support is great, and response is fast. Jeff
IMMERSIVE AUDIO - 737NG CFM IMMERSION SOUNDPACK HD FSX P3D

A very nice underestimated add-on for anyone in the 737. Truly does “immerse” you in the 737 cockpit, and for the price it is a no-brainer
