I took it upon myself to make a complete overhaul of the flight dynamics and performance of the C17 by Capt22. That means that i changed a lot of things from the cfg files.

-The virtual flight model now matches the 3d model.

-Correct weight, thrust, geometry, aerodynamics, etc...

-fixed some lights.

I filled the data with what i could find on the internet, but some values i had to invent, like moment of inertia, axis stability, etc..Knowing that a C17 is more agile than a 747.

Issues:

-I dont know where exactly is the contact point for a tail strike.

-The virtual cockpit is higher than the actual cockpit location since it came from a 747, so keep that in mind when landing.

If someone  knows how the plane handles IRL, and can compare it to this, please tell me so i can try and improve it, or someone could improve my work.

I just made the changes, full credits go to the authors

Ver 1.1

* Fixed landing gear clipping to the ground.

* Fixed fuel ammount and tanks.

Does anybody know how to show the contrails for this livery? Thanks in advance.

Nice mod!

Is this flight_model.cfg just copy paste and replace the old one? If I do that, the cockpit instrument disappears. How to fix it? Thank you.

I have the same issue of the camera being way out in front of the cockpit when in virtual cockpit. Is there a way to fix this please?? only happens when i put this flight model fix in.
This causes the cockpit to not be visible.???? Landing gear is above the tarmac now , a good look yes , but no visible cockpit is available. please advise on correction file to be issued to fix problem.
Overall the aircraft is a treat to fly. Well done my friend.
PS: you supplied two files to fix landing gear issue, witch should we be using??
This causes the cockpit to not be visible.
Hello dear friend, i searched for manuals like the POH or technical docs. I couldn't find freeware. But i a shop whre they offer the complete paper work of the US Army for the Globemaster for $9.95. Maybe this is e way to get complete technical infos,greeting Lutz https://www.flight-manuals-online.com/product/boeing-c-17-globemaster-iii/
I like this mod. However, there is clipping of the landing gear through the ground. I installed the so-called fix. But, the fix for the clipping causes the cockpit to not display. So, I was forced to use this mod with the lending gear clipping. Can the developer simply fix the clipping?
Can we download this as a standalone or do we need to download the orig. from Capt22 and then import these files in and update?
Any idea if this fixes the issue where trying to land the aircraft seems to not want to actually touch down, regardless how slow, slightest flair and it's lifting off again.
First of all love it but the RAF flag is wrong its a should be this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Air_Force_roundels on the wings and the tail.

Also their appears to be a flashing of light within the cockpit on the quest 2 with beta drivers installed.
Thank you for this model. I also have blank screens in this latest update so have gone back to the earlier update. I think within the confines of MSFS you have got the flight model as good as it's going to get. None of the default or third party aircraft fly "properly" due to the restrictions in the MSFS flight engine (over sensitive controls/no stall or spin modelling/no friction or drag effect from weather etc etc). I find this aircraft difficult to control during the flare but otherwise it's a fine port-over of a great addon.
Having an Issue with the ALT knob. will not let me set the Altitude i want to cruise at ????knob engages but stutters back and forth between 2 arbitrary numbers then when released goes back to the original Number....(EX.. say its set at 1600... itry to move it up and it goes between 1600 and 1700 ..then when released goes back to 1600)....Awesome Mod tho , and crazy thing is i flew it all last week with no issues..
you need to update your change logs
heres some slightly improved fuselage and wing contact points if you would like to incorporate them into your mod or have a play around, cheers

Just the flight_model config file in the new release - is that correct?
hi i have a big problem the panel is al down all black
I would love to fly this however it is unflyable. As soon as i throttle up the aircraft wants to pull right and i end up just going in circles
if anyone is having issues not being in the cockpit when starting i have found this to work in the cameras.cfg i am also running the steam edition dont know if that makes a difference. love the plane thanks
