Detecting Turbulence at the Plane

Recommended Posts

Some of the new models feature wings that react to turbulence.How are they detecting if the plane is being hit by actual turbulence at any given moment in time (versus being in a layer that has the potential to contain turbulence, which is something I believe FSUIPC allows you to determine).Bryan

Hey Bryan, it all goes on g-forces as far as I know:P Small increases make the wing flex up, decreases, flex down. Combind with some code so they flex up to a set amount as the plane speeds up, you get a nice flexy wing:D

>Thank you!>>It never occured to me to use G force to measure turbulence.There is quite a well-written description of the process and the code needed at http://freeflightdesign.com Look in the XML Parts forum.
