    ;) i forget something.... i tested the thrust the max. rpm should be 2300rpm, (only for take off) the mod dont make this rpm. (100% thrust) and after the initial climb.... 2100rpm continous thrust in the cruise climb 92% thrust max, allowed. (Vy for 88kias flaps up.) i was on the support.diamond page today for study :) it's a great plane... have a nice day ! :) and thanks

    That is deliberate. That's how im limiting the power for colder conditions

    When adjusting baro (Kohlman window) through SimConnect, the G1000 baro is not adjusted. Only steam gauge is. In some other planes it does adjust the G one as well.

    hello, thank you for your work :) im curious...an have a question about this flight model mod. whats your source , when you correct the flap drag, and lift factor, is that a value from the original da40ng manual?? are there some data ? best regards :)

    AFM data, Videos and pilot reports. I sadly dont have access to a DA40NG. I can't guarantee the performance of the flightmodel. But its definitely better than the default.

    Awesome to see someone putting their own time aside to do these mods! I'm sure I speak for most people when I say its greatly appreciated! Although i don't know if its a bug or just me not installing it correctly, but on both the DA40 and DA62 i cant control the aircraft. No matter the speed or trim settings it wont witch up. Any ideas to what the issue could be? Its happened on the last few releases and I have the G1000 mod installed and the red "X" and ":)" on the select aircraft page too. I have looked for solutions but didn't see anyone with the same issue. Thank you for your time.

    Hello, I have had a look and I was using the legacy flight model and I have tried changing it and it worked a treat. Thank you for your great work, greatly appreciated!

    Thanks for this mod, I am enjoying flying both it and the DA62. I like the steerable nosewheel. It may not be authentic, but I can see why you added it. Making it optional seems a good workaround for those that don't like it.

    What if I don't have pedals and can't do differential braking?

    Please remove nose wheel steering as others have asked. Also, this latest version does not seem to show up with 1.10.11 version of MSFS (at least there's not X on the image, and the prop control seems different). Is there another way to tell if it's working?

    look carefully. ive changed the thumbnail. i haven't changed the prop control at all from the previous version. I will provide a simple PDF on how to change the nose wheel steering in the next update
