О сайте

The Discus-2c is a single-seat, high-performance sailplane by German glider manufacturer Schempp-Hirth. The sailplane also comes in a front electric sustainer version (FES) available for purchase in the Discus-2c Premium Edition. The Discus-2c features composite construction, advanced flight control surfaces for precise control, and a state-of-the-art wing design that maximizes glide performance and aerodynamic efficiency. The 18 meter version has a 28.5 aspect ratio and each version has a top speed of 174 miles per hour. One of the most advanced soaring craft ever developed, the incredible Discus-2c allows aviators to master the heights in the purest form of flight. Stay aloft in the mountains by riding ridge lift, circle into a cloud base on thermals, or just glide along silently on laminar air. The Discus-2c allows aviators to become one with the sky.

EXTRA INFORMATION:

The Discus-2c is now fully compatible with native features, we have included a new launch menu for additional launch options and our old launch menu is still accessible for those who enjoyed the old winch launch. Thank you for all the patience throughout this process. We have been delayed for quite some time because of the lack of Official Glider support from Asobo and marketplace delays of the Wilga 35/80 Series. We hope that you enjoy this update and we will continue to improve it in the future. Also, JackBilbo’s LXN Navigation Replacement Mod is in the process of being updated. Hopefully soon you will all get that latest update as well. We have been working with him throughout this process, but for now, if you want to use version 2.0.6., please remove his LXN Navigation Mod from your community folder until he has released an updated version.

ALL DISCUS-2C LIVERY CREATORS:

You must change your aircraft.cfg and texture.cfg fallback files after this update. This is a MAJOR update and we had to change the aicraft type to “Glider” from “Single-Engine”. The paintkit has been updated with new example files if you need help. Starting now, EVERY COMMUNITY LIVERY will be INCOMPATIBLE until the livery artist updates their packages. We deeply apologize for any inconvenience, however this update had to be made and these files were always bound to change once the 40th Anniversary incorporated gliders.

Cheers! We hope this transition isn’t painful and look forward to everyone’s feedback.

The link to the flight manual does not work anymore. It seems to have changed to this one: https://www.got-friends.com/pages/flight-manuals

is there a way to save the adverse yaw setting? when starting a new flight it's always at 50%

will this be updated to work with the programming done for the 40th anniversary gliders thermals/wench and Cessna tow?

I am a pilot, but not on gliders, am familiar with airspeed indicator markings, but that yellow triangle and blue marks must be glider specific. What do they indicate?

Best glide speed and/or minimum rate of descent speed?

Update: Ok, now I found that the yellow triangle is the best L/D speed, aka best glide speed. Is it then with or without water ballast?

Still have to figure out the blue marks. On twin engine planes it means the best rate of climb speed with one engine inop., it must be something else here 😊

Before getting into my issue, thx for developing and sharing your Team's work with the community !!! The bird looks fantastic 😋

I've installed the Discus-2c folder in my Community folder and all looks fine until I close the canopy :-/ The glider's interior is all ok but the view looking out is immediately and entirely blocked by some sorts of "Star Wars warp speed" graphics -- all dark with rays of lights had zoomed by.

I do not have this issue with any other birds in the sim. Am I the only one?

Thx

Would it be possible to implement the adverse yaw number into the monitor?

Because sometimes there is a reset and the only way to check it is to activate the helping tool to see the number.

You should update the aircraft.cfg file parameter ui_typerole to "Glider" so this aircraft will be identified and organized in the Hangar aircraft filters as a "Glider" instead of an "Other" aircraft type.

HOW DO I GET IT TO START MOVING

Loved it and have bought the premium version! Thank you for this excellent and beautiful piece of software 😊 I am currently flying Floyd's Alpine Odyssey with the Discus which I would very much recommend as well! Take your time, take in the views...

How do I use the towing function in multiplayer?

ça me rappel des souvenirs!! merci beaucoup! 😊

After loosening the rope I fall like a stone. all included weather presets same problem. location doesn't matter either.

hi.thanks for this freeware. everything was working. but suddenly i have a white screen and white gauges in the cockpit. any fix? thanks

I love this glider. It's a great way to pass time soaring around the many scenic places. It's a new & different experience in the sim from flying anything with an engine. The freeware version is great, but I bought the payware version (which itself is great value) because I appreciate this great addition to MSFS. Thank you again to the devs, really enjoying it. One of these days I may even read the manual!

Thanks for this wonderful glider! How do you get the ballast dump vapor effect? Opened the ballast valves and did not see water vapor.

Hello!

Since last update 2.0.3, all my digital displays (FES FCU, V8 and Navigation) are black. I downloaded and installed twice without success. Even with both battery switches and the FES switch on, the FES Motor won´t start. I reinstalled 2.0.2 and everything is o.k.

Edit: Sorry, this Info refers to the Discus-2C Premium

SO MUCH FUN!

No expert on glider flying but this is a great way to take in the beautiful scenery we have in this sim, Austria is a great location of course.

I've featured the Discus in my latest video, well done for bringing us gliders nearly a year before we are due to officially get them.

Часто задаваемые вопросы

Вопросы? Найдите решение здесь.

Do I need Kinetic Assistant to use this Glider?

No, the Discus-2c has a fully functional Winch Launch built into the Navigation Display upon loading onto the flightline. You may choose cable length and cable speed prior to hitting launch. Thermal Activated Weather Presets are provided in this download and may be used to enhance your gliding experience. If you would like to use Multiplayer or AI Towing you will need to purchase the Discus-2c Premium Edition or download Kinetic Assistant. The Discus-2c has been designed in partnership with Touching Cloud and is 100% Compatible with Kinetic Assistant if you choose to use that application.

Why does my Navigation Display looks like the Matrix and not working?

Please update your GTN-750 Addon or remove it completely from your Community
Folder. PMS50 is aware of the compatibility issue and we are working together to ensure this gets addressed in the future.

What Additional Hotkeys can I assign with this Glider?

The Discus-2c uses Lights as Multiplayer Variable Triggers. Therefore, you should never press "L" on your keboard in-game. Pressing “L” in-flight might make your flight, features, and experience broken and unflyable.

Here are the additional Hotkeys available with the Discus-2c:

  • Spoiler Axis: Recommend Assigning this to your Throttle for Variable Speed Brake Control.
  • Throttle Axis: Recommend Assigning this to a Slider or Knob for Realistic FES Control.
  • Strobe Light: Ballast Valves (Open/Close)
  • Glareshield Light: Glareshield Light (On/Off)
  • Panel Light: FES FCU (On/Off)
  • Pedestal Light: Canopy (Open/Close)
  • Wing Lights: Winglet Navigation Lights (On/Off)
  • Cabin Light: Ventilation Lever (Open/Close)
  • Taxi Light: FLARM (On/Off)
  • Logo Light: Towplane Connection Switch (Connect/Disconnect)
  • Pitot Heat: Pitot Heat (On/Off)
  • Nav Light: Skip/Next Waypoint
  • Recognition Light: Quick Winch Disconnect
  • Water Rudder: Kinetic Assistant (Functions/Connections)
Where can I get Official Support?
