    Because BeamNG needs more airplanes. So that's my little contribution to this.

    Now the video should work.


    UPDATE #6

    DONE:
    - reworked the whole thermal model
    - more small improvements

    TODO:
    -aircraft trailer for this glider-

    Whats new ?

    You can change the "weather" conditions as you want.
    If you want more challange move the environmental slider to the left. If you want less move it to the write.
    This changes the spawn behavior of the thermals.
    Anmerkung2019-04-10205523.png
    The right indicator shows if the thermal is on the left or the right side of your aircraft .
    The left indicator indicates if the thermal is above or beneath your aircraft.

    And you can disable the thermal information if you change the cockpit part in the part Editor.​

    It's basically the old mesh but I spent some time reworking it to look smoother.

    As in jet you mean like a spinning propeller inside a engine or a jet that has afterburners... or both!

    To make more breakable parts i have to rebuild the whole beam structure, unfortunately :(. I would rather spent this time making other mods:oops: or aircrafts.
    And in real, a glider planes does not have many joints or connections which can break. Not even close as many as a B-25. ;)

    No offense but the picture where the engine is on top of the aircraft, it looks weird to me, but, can you atleast make look sleek cuz my brain won't say "NYAH NYAH, AERODYNAMICS, NYAH BLAHH!"
    but you really don't have to, but, ALSOO!! the pic that AN2Felllla showed me, it kinda looked like you can retract the engine. also GG

    This is an absolute pleasure to fly, great work. Flight model is very smooth, feels real. Makes me want to build another plane now :p

    Since your wings are one piece you could stabilize them with slidenodes instead of extra support structure, something Davded told me about. I also think the airbrakes reduce the lift too much and increase drag too little, maybe add an expanding vertical coltri element to them and reduce the aerodynamic properties of the current coltri?

    That was the idea.:cool:
    Maybe i'll build a winch or sth. to get this thing off the Ground.

    ...

    Meanwhile, i achieved some progress with the cockpit.

    This model is beautiful. Thanks for uploading and updating this. Great fun just cruising around italy in this thing. I set up the spoiler to my throttle on my joystick, which makes flying a breeze. However, I can't get into cockpit view. Is that because it's not ready yet, or is there a binding that needs to get set up?

    No, i didn't upload the version with the cockpit camera until now. ;)

    Now it uses a second flap which expands in the opposite direction to generate more drag and reduce less lift. The vertical coltri didn't really worked out in the way i was trying to use it. So i'll stick to the cheaty double flap solution for now.:D:oops:

    Latest update is great! Fun and relaxing to be in the cockpit. All we need is some water ballast, incessant beeping from a VSI, a string for the pedal ball, and for BeamNG Drive to implement ridge lift :)

    Bug report: I was gliding for a good while, then deployed the spoilers as I set up for landing. Then both wings departed the aircraft simultaneously. Well, in actuality they exploded.

    This mod is great, but the joystick is floating

    I have an error to report, after gliding for a bit and then you use the air brake the wings just explode. It's almost like the air brake gets stuck in the wing or something.

    Thanks for reporting :).

    What do you mean by floating ?
