The Hoffmann H36 Dimona is not your regular small aircraft. It`s in the rather exclusive class of touring motor gliders; aircraft that are a cross between motor aircraft and gliders. They got the long wings of a glider but a standard (though often rather small) aircraft engine. You can either use them as a normal aircraft or switch off the engine and glide for a while.

Truth be told, most of them are not brilliant in either capacity but all of them have special characteristics. You will need a few hours to get fully acquainted with the Dimona. But after those hours you will have found a new friend. Because it might not be the best motor aircraft and certainly not the most efficient glider, but it most certainly has character. You will love it quirks and peculiarities as it is truly entertaining to fly.

There has never been a high quality motor glider for MS Flight Simulation. And this one is certainly high end. At the base of the product is one of the most detailed flight/engine models ever done for FSX. Accurate down to the altitude you lose in a spin. The aircraft is meticulously modeled and has superb non-standard animations. Though there are not that many systems, those that are included are programmed with great depth. The C4 Flight Computer alone needs dozens of pages in the manuals! Where FSX poses limitations the developers simply did not use the FSX options and programmed their own system. The H36 Dimona is a high end simulation of a special aircraft.

Features:

Models / Animations / Sounds:

  • Three different versions. Glider equipped, CVFR equipped and simple.
  • Cockpit shakes on ground roll, stall, sideslip and due to engine vibrations.
  • Very detailed visual model of a used aircraft.
  • Fully functional Virtual cockpit (only 2d panel for the GPS).
  • Dynamic wing flex that reacts on g-force (Not comparable to standard wing flex system).

Flight / Engine modeling:

  • Very accurate flight model allowing slip and spins.
  • Realistic windmill start-up possible.
  • Engine damage due to over speeding or overheating.
  • Engine will "diesel" on shut down when hot.
  • Custom calculated values for oil temperature and cylinder head temperature.
  • Cylinder head temperature dependent on cowl flap position.
  • Wind milling propeller produces drag, which reduces gliding performance, and helps during landing.
  • Choke has effect on engine roughness when cold and drowns engine when warmed up.

Systems / Avionics:

  • Dynamic overstress prevention system (ailerons up).
  • Custom propeller animations of blade pitch and slow RPM`s:
    • Takes a realistic 1m 20s from full fine to full feather.
    • Engine compression noticeable on prop movement.
    • Propeller stopping position affected by airspeed and side slip.
  • Custom electrical fuel pump.
  • All circuit breakers are functional.
  • Circuit breakers for COM, NAV and Transponder might trip if they are on during engine start.
  • Accurate function of parking brake system.
  • SDI C4 competition glider computer and audible variometer with realistic total energy compensation.
  • Accurate simulation of the MT propeller control unit:
    • Uses an electric motor to control blade pitch, requiring that electrical power is available for the unit.
    • If the circuit breaker is switched off in start position, You might over speed the engine.
    • Auto position for constant speed control.
    • Glide position for feathering the propeller blades.
    • Rotary knob for RPM adjustment.
  • Custom transponder.
  • Custom GPS:
    • Monochrome LCD look.
    • Free positioning.
    • Setup page for selection of what to show on the GPS map.
    • Accepts FSX flight plans when loaded from the FSX flight plan menu page.
    • Direct-To function.
    • NRST station Airport, VOR, NDB and fixes can be selected for Direct-To`s.
    • Cursor mode where you can select any position on the map as a Direct-To.
    • HSI page showing ground track, flight plan leg bearing and cross track deviation.
  • Custom old style VOR.
  • Compass that really floats in fluid.
  • Instruments needles react on vibrations and aero dynamical influences.

Additional:

  • Aerosoft sound module with over 150 sounds for all controls and for:
    • Switch and lever sounds.
    • Special engine sounds.
    • Wind sounds for side slip and windows.
    • MT-propeller electric motor.
  • Load save module:
    • Automatically saves panel state and fuel quantity when aircraft is standing still on the ground with engine off.
  • High quality sound set recorded in and from the real aircraft in flight and on the ground.
  • Automatic warning signs in the VC if the user sets up FSX wrong.
  • Smashed insects appear on the windscreen and leading edge of the wings (only during summer - can be cleaned on the ground).
  • Automatically loads panel state when the aircraft is loaded / reloaded.
  • Extensive documentation, including original checklist and specially formatted checklists for smartphones.
  • Light on framerate.
  • No online activation needed, does personalize the installed files.

The checklists and the manual for the C4 Flight Computer are included in the product.

REVIEWS
\"Auch wenn der Preis gegenüber der Vorversion deutlich gestiegen ist, sind die 27,95 Euro absolut gerechtfertigt und gut angelegt. Wer ein modernes Sportflugzeug mit viel Systemtiefe sucht, bekommt mit der Katana 4X ein Addon, das in der Königsklasse angesiedelt ist und keine direkte Konkurrenz hat. Für ernsthafte GA-Flieger unbedingt empfehlenswert!\"
\"A very nice step for glider pilots that want to get into motor aircraft, or the other way around, Aerosofts Dimona X is way more than just a step in between. It’s a unique, very detailed product that will keep you happily occupied for hours, exploring this new way of flying, exploring it’s features, and learning to live with its quirks. The Dimona X doesn’t stand out because of just one or two top features. Instead, it stands out because the entire package is rock solid and well balanced. I gladly recommend this product to anyone that likes small GA aircraft, gliders, or just wants something new to try.\"

INIBUILDS - ORIGAMI STUDIOS LONDON GATWICK (EGKK) MSFS
Ryan
good scenery but is the only airport I've installed and had issues with FPS
ROLAND LABORIE - VOUGHT CRUSADER F8-E MSFS
Andrew
Having owned this since almost day 1, I wanted to hold off reviewing until I saw how the patch cycle went. Having owned the BN-2 and L-19 whose packages started off being pure garbage but several patches later have become very competent models, I know initially rough planes can be great. Being over a month since launch, sadly no updates is forcing me give this a 2 star review. For 29 EUR you are paying somewhat of a premium in this MSFS economy for a plane. This includes fixing what should have glaring issues during QA. A laundry list of bugs and lacking features exist. From the map HUD not turning on properly from cold and dark to non-working interior buttons and switches. Initialization states are not setup properly either (such as spawning at altitude will put you in a plane with no running engine). As others have complained, you will occasionally get a beeping in the cockpit that seemly has a mind of it's own. While the interior looks decent, the exterior is way too shiny and not representative of even a brand new aircraft. As others have pointed out, one of the biggest negatives is the sound. Using A320 and CJ4 default sounds throughout takes you right out of the cockpit experience. The relatively quiet FJ44 engine sounds nothing like the roar of the afterburning J57 in the real plane. At the end of it all I think this plane has promise. Some of what I've mentioned (like initialization states) is something that could be fixed in less than an hour. This isn't Fall of 2020. The SDK is getting quite robust and producing planes like this isn't acceptable anymore.

Really nice airport. Nice quality, wonderful jetways. Simple & worth it ! Buy it !
LATINVFR - AIRPORT STATIC AIRCRAFT FOR ASOBO AIRPORTS MSFS
Brennan
It's a fantastic start. The aircraft models are gorgeous and vibrant in color. However, there needs to be more of them, and at gates instead of just filling up access remote parking spaces. I don't mind having half the gates blocked to spawn into if it means having an airport that looks alive and functional. I think if you kept the aircraft ration at between 50-60% of an airports gates it would really make the game feel much more lively. It is also worth looking into exactly where each airline parks at each of these airports as some of the aircraft placement is incorrect. For example, at KSEA, my home airport, they have southwest planes at the C and D gates. Whereas in real life only alaska uses C and D, with American and Spirit making use of of gates D8, D9, D10, and D11. B gates are a combo of Delta and Southwest, and A gates being split between Delta and United, with united typically occupying anywhere between A21 and A6. N gates are Alaska ONLY, and S gates are anything International and Frontier. I know this is nitpicky but other freeware traffic mods, even with much worse models got the placement correct, and i'd be more than willing to help the developers with putting in the research to ensure each airport has not only the proper AMOUNT of traffic but the proper placement.

Most of them are satisfactory. However, the height of the terminal building is too high. It's very different from the real thing. Hope this gets updated.

Definitely a disappointment! The models are pretty good however the aircraft are few and far between. Would of also liked to be able to have these at the Airports that LVFR created.

SIM SKUNK WORKS - FIAT-AERITALIA G-91 FOR MSFS
Arthur
I have been enthusiastic about this aircraft since childhood and was very happy that the G-91 is available for the MFSF. The design, the details and the presentation of the cockpit inspire me. Unfortunately, I am less enthusiastic about the flight characteristics of the Fiat. At the start I could not keep them on the runway and crashed constantly against airport buildings. SimSkunk advised me, very quickly, to switch to the aircraft model into "Modern". After the changeover I get the Gina at least in the air. There, however, it is extremely unstable, especially around the roll axis. I haven't been able to fly controlled curves so far. The elevator also hardly reacts to the instructions from the cockpit. I also fly the MB-339. It is stable in the air and reacts to rudder movements as I expect. At the moment it is not much fun to fly the G-91. Maybe there will soon be an update that stabilizes the flight behaviour.
PROJECT MAX - CYZF YELLOWKNIFE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT P3D4-5
Timothy
Ridiculously good scenery for the price--or more than the price. MAX keeps getting better. One of these days we'll be saying, "Ah, I knew them when..." And what better time to say thank you for supporting P3D. There is a lot of custom detail, including, of course, the iconic Buffalo hanger. All it needs is a Herman Nelson heater! Plenty of cars and equipment, too. The snow config is super: piles of the stuff, and not all in neat smooth mounds, either. Very realistic. Grey weeds sticking through where it's thinner are a great touch. The pavement is cracked and has puddles, and reflection is used to good effect. I was very impressed. I spent an hour just taxiing around in my Buffalo DC-3 taking in the sights, and it's not a very big airport. The AI traffic was appropriate, too. Lighting is good, and it looks great at night. Five stars doesn't mean it's FlyTampa quality, by the way, but if we have to compare apples and oranges, we should take into account a lot of things, including price and exceeding expectations by a wide margin. This is not some cheap, carelessly knocked out airport. This is really very nice by any standard, and I'm happy to give it five stars. I would have been glad to get any sort of Yellowknife (as an Ice Pilots NWT fan), but this is a very good little airport on its own if you fancy a NWT destination. -
Having said that, I should mention that installation is not exactly a one-click process. In fact, the only clicks are to extract folders and then one to add it from inside P3D. It isn't exactly manual installation (you don't have to look at the scenery.cfg) but it does require attention to detail getting various files (including more than one set of fixes) into the correct places. It probably won't be too hard if you know your way around the P3D folder, but if you've never done this sort of thing before, be aware. Especially since while the instructions do make sense if you already know what you're doing, if you don't and just follow them literally, it's not going to turn out well. If you get in a jam, though, I'm sure the devs would be happy to help, or you could check in with your favorite flight simulation forum, like AVSIM for peer support. Oh, there's also a click or two on the configurator to get those wonderful snow effects. The-
re are a couple of minor graphics issues I've written the developer about. Nothing to cause you to hesitate on a purchase though. I imagine they'll get back to me. They clearly put a lot of effort into this one. A must for Ice Pilots NWT fans, and I can't see anyone who enjoys flying in Canada passing it up. This isn't exactly bush flying. It's a nice flight north from Edmonton and has a First Air terminal. Plenty of appropriate Canadian AI (saw a Canadian North 737: bingo!) Honestly, you won't find better scenery at this price, and you could do worse at twice the price. Just be careful on those valley runs. Nothing good ever happens in Norman Wells on the show ;-)
