How much realistic the flight dynamics are ?

Recommended Posts

According to X-Plane, how much realistic the flight dynamics?

 

With a default 747 I can do a half barrel roll :blink: Just wondering how much realistic it is. Is it possible to happen in real?

I guess no one ever tried that IRL.

 

OTOH, the default 744 isn't certainly the best representative of a 744 and of the possibilities of the X-Plane flight dynamics model...

 

Make sure you enable the various "Damage" options under "Settings" / "Operations and Warnings".

 

Since a B707 did once perform a barrel roll I guess a 744 could to...

 

Give me a moment, I'll try it in the best 744 sim available and will be right back ;-)

 

EDIT:

 

Tried in Aerowinx PSX and it did barrel roll, so, I guess the real thing would too :-)  Then I tried the same in XP10, and got a bit faster roll rate ( it was more slugish in Aerowinx ) with more or less the same GW, but, as I wrote before, the 744 in XP10 is a default aircraft, certainly not the most accurate rendition of a 744 possible in this sim :-)

 

As a final  note, I do find X-Plane's flight model very powerful and capable, and provided you know how to play with it through plane-maker and scripting, and have access to good RW data, I believe you can design very plausible approaches to real aircraft performance...


Flight Simulation is the Virtual Materialization of a Dream...

Uninstalling flightsims is a temptation I can never resist...
