great plane, but a lack of sound in the cockpit.

Thanked by Rara_Avis_Sims

Excellent work! I love this little plane!

Thanked by Rara_Avis_Sims

Merci, c'est parfait pour la visite de villes!

Very nice little ultralight, I enjoyed it from the moment I got into it on a grass strip and flew some low and slow circuits. Can anyone ell me what that strange little stick next to the throttle is, or what It's used for? Couldn't find a manual for this plane so can't look it up.

I hope the sound is the next thing to be developed, it doesn't appear to be loud enough for an utralight, and doesn't sound like a Rotax. It's OK I can pretend I'm wearing Bose noise cancelling headphones but I'd like to hear something that relates more to ultralight experience.

At the risk of treading on toes, I did find the flight model a bit too slippery, so I tweaked the cfg files and to me it now feels a bit more like a draggy ultralight.

In the flight_model.cfg I changed a few values as follows:


cruise_lift_scalar =1

parasite_drag_scalar =2.3

induced_drag_scalar =1.4

flap_induced_drag_scalar =1.5

elevator_effectiveness =1.2

elevator_maxangle_scalar =0.75

aileron_effectiveness =1.1

It now washes off speed once the throttle is closed much more readily. I changed the power_scalar in the engines.cfg to 1.0 which gives a 65kts cruise with the throttle retarded a bit from full power, which I think is about right.

I'd appreciate any feedback on the se mods if anyone would like to try them!

This aircraft looks really nice. Is it VR compatible?

A fantastic ultralight, great for sightseeing. 😊

I wonder, would it be possible to include a simple wings-level autopilot? Maybe with a click spot somewhere on the dash, or maybe the way user "Darshonaut" does it, via a hotkey.

I love it!

Is there a way to read out fuel level sitting in the cockpit? (It is possible to read it out in extern view.)

RPM (extern view) does not match RPM (instrument panel).

What is the second operating lever (cockpit, left side) for?

TY! Great!

What did you need to do to make this su9 compatible? The old version is still running fine for me.

Thanked by Rara_Avis_Sims

Thank you!

O freio não funciona ou é bem fraco mesmo? Does the brake not work or is it really weak?

Thanked by Rara_Avis_Sims

This is an absolute blast, and I love the animated pull-start for the engine! It's perfect for lazy sightseeing, but it can also make otherwise mundane hops seem truly epic: I just flew it from Northern Ireland to the Isle of Man, and felt like I was Lindberg crossing the Atlantic.

Thanked by Rara_Avis_Sims

Perfecto, buen avión.

Thanked by Rara_Avis_Sims

Very nice UL, thank you!

Thanked by Rara_Avis_Sims

Great light aircraft! Could you build a Quad City Challenger 2?

Thanked by Rara_Avis_Sims

Thats brilliant, I'm learning to fly in a Thruster T600N in the real-world and this is the closest thingh I've found to it so far in the sim - although this seems to float much more than the Thruster which has the floating ability of a brick holding onto a particularly heavy lead weight. Loving this for sightseeing and I'm sure it will come in useful for practicing cross-country flights in VR as its about the same cruise speed. If you ever fancy modeling a Thruster let me know what you need.
