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
TROPICALSIM - ST THOMAS CYRIL E KING TIST 2018 FSX P3D
Jose Otero
Been a long time supporter of Tropicalsim sceneries. I go back to fs2004 and I even bought their full pack of Caribbean airports. Even thought their sceneries have improved a great deal, they still fall way short of the Elite developers. TIST is a good example of how they always fall short of my expectations. On this latest version they did not model the entire island and could not think to add lights to their light poles. Just laziness or a lack of care for their work. I echo the same thoughts for all the sceneries that I own and I have almost all of them.
HIGH SKY TECH - ULTIMATE ENHANCED VIRTUAL COCKPIT FOR SSG 747-8I X-PLANE 10/11
David Rogers
Subtle improvements to the VC, and some other good features. It won't transform the VC of the SSG 747 into something of the quality of the Flight Factor A320 or IXEG 737 but for the lost cost I paid for it (£5), worth the money for a small improvement.

FSIMSTUDIOS - TOCUMEN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MPTO PANAMA CITY FSX P3D
Peter Gordon
It's great to have such a large airport from Central America and FSimStudios have modeled it as it will be when completed. I am happy with the purchase and I'll make good use of the airport, but it gets a 3 because it's still a bit rough on the textures, the AFCAD file has no airlines assigned to parking gates (picky I know, but it's nice to be assigned a realistic gate) and the night lighting is too dim. Having said that, it's good to see FSimStudios tackle a bigger airport like this.
29PALMS / CAPTAIN 7 - EDDN NUREMBERG P3D4
Bryan Wallace
I think this is an incredibly underappreciate-
d airport. Though is services mostly regional aircraft, I will go on a limb and say it is one of the most detailed payware airports on the market. If you have the benefit of a program like Chaseplane, get out of the cockpit and explore the area. You will be amazed by the staggering detail that went into the visuals at this airport. I think I almost lost it when I saw cars driving around the rooftop level of the parking garage looking for parking. When you observe the Nuremberg sign from the outside of the airport you feel like you are a part of a living breathing world. This will be reinforced when you observe shuttle busses pulling into a parking space to pick up and drop off passengers. Though they don’t actual show passengers getting off the shuttle, you feel something like that could be coming in the future. (Hint! Hint!) That being said, this is an absolutely visually stunning airport. I am sure it won’t disappoint.

Awesome Helicopter , Looks great sounds great and flys great...…….
GIBSON SCENERIES FOR FLIGHT SIMULATOR - CHINA - HONG KONG TO SHANGHAI
James McHarg
This scenery is the missing link if you are bored with the repetitive sameness of the default scenery and other ground texture products that have been around for years. This scenery is as real as it gets. Finally we have a product that looks from the flight deck exactly like the real thing. It enhances the realism of the flight sim experience greatly. Note that this is not a low altitude VFR product. It is more suited to higher altitude flying with airliners or military aircraft.To really see the benefit you do need to be above 5000 feet or so. The higher you are, the better it gets. Once you attain cruising altitude, I cannot think of another product that rivals this software. I thoroughly recommend this software to you.
LATINVFR - BALTIMORE-WASHINGTON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT KBWI FSX P3D

This the best product from LATINVFR to date. Great detail and beautiful scenery. Be sure to read the manual about mesh settings.

RFSCENERYBUILDING - LIPZ VENICE MARCO POLO AIRPORT FSX P3D
Perry Mattenberger
My first impression when loading up is that I am disappointed. The brick texturing of the buildings look like from a dated FS9 or FSX scenery. I also don't like the green roofs of the jetways and buildings that much. Apron ground textures are ok. I should have looked a bit closer at it before purchasing, but was excited to have new scenery here and from a distance these textures look ok.
