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.\"

BRSIMDESIGNS - EMB200 IPANEMA CROP DUSTER - MSFS
Ron
WOW and I've not even gotten into it or the spray yet. I BUY a lot of planes for MSFT and this one is a great little model. Interiors great - flies super well, excellent views... many well done camera angles. Ig it disapoints later I'll change review. In first 15 minutes... WOW

my fav handles SO WELL - I love my WACO too but I fly this more.

I bought this on the MSFS Marketplace and I consider it to be very well made. Flies great and the sound is awesome. It comes with an integrated checklist (albeit not automatable, although starting the plane is simple enough, tbh) and even has historic pilot avatars and the regular ones from MSFS to choose from. The plane is a lot of fun, no regrets to buy this. It is also a total bargain.

I truthfully have no complaints. -
I had low expectations since many kept saying this was bad. However, I was pleasantly surprised! The exterior is beautiful. What else can I say? The cockpit looked nice, maybe not study level. If you don't like how it flies and already purchased it, try a flight improvement mod! It definitely helped me out! Happy flying!
MAGMEXICO - ABRAHAM GONZÁLEZ INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Arturo
It's a great scenery and I would give it a 4.5 star rating. This is available since 2016 and still has not a SODE gateways! this put this scenery a way back compared to other sceneries of similar price range. I give it 3 out of five stars.
VIRTUALCOL - EMBRAER 170/175 SERIES FOR MSFS
Israel
Just an Update for my review. i've been contacted by Virtualcol, and they explaind the importance of activating the AP exactly as in the Tutorial, and it workes much better now.thnx for the fast response. to sum it up: speed MUST be inputed for flight phase in the FMS BEFORE activating AP, Select the desired ALT without pressing the ALT hold, engage the VS and select, engage FMC button (NOT NAV) and only then activate the AP. still can't quite figure out speed selection logic, and ILS APP, but maybe it's me. anyways TUTORIALS are a must to fly this one, can't just jump in! i've had some more enjoyable flights now, hope some flightmodel improovments will be done to make more realistic. hop-
e this helps, have fun!

Producto bastante mediocre. Copia paneles de otros aviones y tiene bastantes fallos. Las texturas externas son un poco más pasables. No es un trabajo profesional. No lo recomiendo en absoluto.

Very cool plane to have. It needs a lot of improvements. -
To begin with, there is NO wingflex, which is very disappointing. -
The engine looks absolutely horrendous. It isnt circular and the tectures look like stickers. Th-
e winglet of the E175 looks weird. It feels like they got the size and angle wrong. I would not recommed it at this moment. But if the problems mentioned above are fixed I'll gladly be the first one to recommend it.

I purchased the DC Design’s Stearman when it was first released on the Just Flight store. This is a real gem if you like historic aircraft. It handles nicely, looks great and is very reasonably priced. A really nice experience in VR too!

Well I'll try to be fair, don't expect too much for the price you pay. basic systems, some bugs and average textures, but it has potential, hopefully it will continue development.
