Since importing of MSFS 98 models is possible, I searched for some motorgliders of this version. If´ve found some gliders here, but unfortunately just FS 2004+ motorgliders. Maybe I find a back-conversion tool to v98 and ask the author for permission.

Or is it possible to extract some performance data for a FlightGear model?

I can´t fly so far so it would be nice if some could test that TMG for me. Thanks!

Capt. Slug?
Interesting, I feel like I know the Schweizer 2-33 ? :D
A conversion is possible, with 0.9.10 we had a MSFS 98 model of an ASW20- but disappeared because the fdm wasn't maintained anymore...

I wouldn´t mind to step back to v0.9.10 to be able to simulate TMG flying with FlightGear :D

What kind of dynamics model is that? I couldn´t find it there:

The SGS33 from your website is converted to FlightGear - so it's you who modelled this airplane?

The fdm used for it was the UIUC- fdm by Michael Selig. But there wasn't a maintance still, so it's now gone....

LOL! For heaven´s sake! I´m just an OLC (ordinary left-handed coder), unable to code anything productive :D Just found both sites by googling.

I´ve learned that the FDM of the glider was "pimped" by someone called David "Dave" Culp to JSBSim. According to this post he created several times JSBSim models of old MSFS 98 aircrafts. Maybe he´s interested. On the other side it will be hard to contact the modeller of the TMG by a 12 year old email address :( Or does anybody know Chris Bowe and Lennart Olsson, respectively?

FYI: Just found another MS model, the DG 800 with retractiing 55 hp engine :)

Similiar to the power of old Falkes but a better performance since it´s a single seater.
