MiG-21 was my first attempt to make an aircraft for FG and it never functioned as it should have. :oops:
You need to understand that I basicly just wraped my 3D model around David Culp's FDM. I'll look into it but I don't promise much.
Russian livery was lost during past two years somwhere on my old PC, I'll make a new one for "fixed" package. :wink:

Oh yes I know. That's the old version of Mig 21.

Too bad the liveries will be not compatible with the new version. I've done 2 nice ones...

I'd like to make two suggestions before the release.

-- Remind users in the aircraft help menu that they have air bakes - CTRL+B.

-- Make flaps stronger. This will make it possible to land at realistic speeds, and fly slower. The flaps also make sure you can't fly too fast with flaps down. I did a similar tweak for my own copy of f-16.
So, replace <function name="aero/coefficient/dCLflap">... </function> with this.
Code: Select all
<function name="aero/coefficient/dCLflap">
       <description>Delta_Lift_due_to_flaps</description>
       <product>
           <property>aero/qbar-psf</property>
           <property>metrics/Sw-sqft</property>
           <table>
             <independentVar lookup="row">fcs/flap-pos-norm</independentVar>
             <tableData>
               0.00  0.00
               0.50  0.40
               1.00  0.70
             </tableData>
           </table>
       </product>
    </function>

The last two values to the right are doubled but despite that they are not too much.

Again, these were suggestions. Don't feel pressured to follow my advice. :wink:

Thanks Mr No, I've implemented your fix and help menu item. I'll lok into Mach 2 speed issue. :wink:
Ernest, sorry about livery compatibility but your's will still work with old the MiG in GIT. New ones will be more "photorealistic", paintkit will be included.

East German AF? That would be great, paintkit is already released with the package. :wink:

I'm done with front and side panels modeling, also there is a new gunsight model. Download link is the same...

Of course. I'll wait for a working cockpit first, though. And to get my PC pack, as I've already done some LSK paints for a FSX version of a Fishbed and having the source files for insignias and tactical numbers is kind of an advantage. ;)
