flight envelopes


flight envelope errors

variables for agility do not use 1 as unity, they use 2
stalls
stability variables should be a multiple of orginal
example
CPITMANE 2 #PITCH MANEUVERBILITY CONSTANT
CPITSTAB 4 #PITCH STABILITY CONSTANT

Cd const negative Cl slope PAIN IN ASS
+ REFTHRLD makes 2nd value up
fix by making cruise max speed @ altitude

-G degrees is often +G/3
carb inline engines without fuel injection should use a smaller
-G value to simulate carb starvation

tire friction is new for version 201502
TIREFRIC 0.09 #TIRE FRICTION COEFFICIENT

movement

convert radians to degrees
r*57.4=deg

G limits (game over pulls G)
approx G vs AOA. x5.6 [7.33 = 41] for jets only

interaction of variables. example
CRITAOAP 24deg #CRITICAL AOA POSITIVE
CRITAOAM -8deg #CRITICAL AOA NEGATIVE
MXIPTAOA 24deg #MAX INPUT AOA
CPITMANE 2 # rate multiplier of pitch up or down

lots of trials and errors
