Yay! I finally made the glider at my gliding club!
I started building this before I built my Road King, but I kinda whent off it for a wee while, but then after I built Draco, I decided I would finish it.


Features:

Realistic glide ratio, realistic performance, THE FIRST PROPERLY WORKING WINCH, full cockpit (Only a tiny bit simplified), fun to fly, 1:1 scale.

The winch is 2km long, which means you can only start at Wright, Yeagar, Avalanche, and Maywar.


Controlls:

Throttle: Rheel in the winch.
Act 1: Release from the winch. (Sadly no back release. :( )
Brake: air brakes


How to take off realistically:


  1. Slowly power up to 75% on the winch

  2. Pull up to about 45 degrees

  3. try and keep your speed between 70 and 80 mph.

    increase the power of the winch a bit if you are struggling to keep your nose high enough and maintain airspeed.

    Speed controll on the winch is opposite to normal flight because your being pulled up by a rigid piston. Pull up further to go faster, lower your nose to go slower. This is not how it works in real life, but it works I guess.

Accuracy

-Note that this is a training variant, and that I has shorter wingtips and fixed landing gear.


Personally, I'm really pleased with how this turned out. Particularly the winch, which actually works better than aerotows! I'm suprised nobody has done it before...


Link to the mod that you need to zoom out far enough that you can find the winch and the glider XD

ENJOY!!!

    This is just awesome. I might be flying in a glider soon so I’m excited.

    When you release from the tow line, do full throttle to make sure the tow line doesn’t blow up. For some reason, when the winch s damaged, the wheel goes crazy lol. @8bitgamer33

    Anyone else find this is broken? I can't land on the runway because it glitches and it randomly glitches out and explodes

    @jamesPLANESii is there a limit?

    I actually ran out of parts on the plane I could 0 drag, which I would have made it about 40:1 if there were more parts with drag lol. @Thoum

    Reminds me so much of the Grob Viking T1 Glider the Royal air Force use. Apart from the wingtips, it’s practically the same aircraft. Nice to see a winch launch in game. Can’t get the stomach dropping feeling you have on the real launch though!

    @jamesPLANESii irl, the 18m variant would have a 42:1 ratio (20m variant is at 46,6:1)
    37:1 is a glide ratio similar to an ASW 15, which has 36,5.
    An example from my memory: on of my instructors flew the Duo Discus (no engine, no XL variant) and made a long landing. He started off with 1m above the winch, so around 3m above the ground, an landed ~700m in front of it. The runway fell about 13m in elevation. With a ratio of 43:1, no problem. If you try that in SP with maintaining the speed, no chance, even though you have a better glide ratio. That's just a SP thing. Sadly...

    You fly to the ground and land gently and civilised. @DemonSniper8

    That is so awesome man I am so so happy for you! I’m hoping I can save up enough cash to take some lessons soon... @jamesPLANESii

    Yup. The glide ratio is about 37:1, which is what I’d expect a shorter winged, fixed landing gear variant would do. @Thoum

    Really? Try it on higher physics. Or maybe turn multiplayer mod off. @SwiftAirTM
