New flightmodel from 11.30 (FSEXPO 2018)

Recommended Posts

Very interesting news from Laminar Research yesterday from FlightSimExpo.

From X-Plane version 11.30 they will bring (again) some changes to the flightmodel. But this time the user will have a option to use the experimental flightmodel or not.

But what I dident like so much was that the option is a general option and then will affect every aircraft. Wouldent it be better to make the option per aircraft ? i.e. from planemaker ? So the devs can decide if the new flightmodel is suitable for the aircraft or not ?

Can the 733 benefit anything from this new flightmodel ?

11.30 also brings a new particle engine that looked very nice.

Very interesting indeed.  At this point it's a bit hard to say what exact impact it will have on flight model.  Trim, controls, feel are likely to get affected which are not a big deal, but if it messes with total lift - which is likely - it will require a major overhaul.

Could be interesting, but they need to fix the unrealistic rain cloud while on the ground with engines running, adding light to it will just make it look worse.

Very promising!   I should have watched it all first time, I also heard HiFi are put all resources into XP version of AS, not found much info on that though.  Future is looking bright.
