Not sure if any of you sim folk can help.
Simulators are just not my thing as I have preferred to always fly the real thing but there are times when its just not possible.
I hear the flight dynamics for X-Plane are the more accurate with regard to real life characteristics of the aircraft protrayed.
Is there anyone here who does a little manipulating of the dynamics on various models or does there own models.
The reason I ask is that I would like to check the flight dynamics of the de Havilland DH-88 Comet that is available through X-Plane. I have access to the correct airfoil values, weight and balance figures, performance figures etc that could be plugged into the model. As I understand it the model is reasonably accurate as far as this goes already, I would just like to have a little manipulation done if this is not the case.
There are a few areas of the flight envelope that I would like to view as it may apply to the replica we are building at Mandeville. Another thing would be to perhaps change out one of the wing tip airfoils for a slightly more benign airfoil than that currently used.
Just thought I would throw this out there and see if there is anyone with the necessary skills on the forum.
