Good sims require good FDMs (the "thing" that makes an aircraft behave like an aircraft).

what determines drag on yasim

Postby paju1986 » Fri Jan 26, 2018 10:18 pm

Im trying to model a more realistic fdm for the r44, i was trying to plug real numbers based on the official r44 handbook but at the end i get a very slow copter, for some reason with the real power of the real thing it can not match the real 110kts cruise speed, i think somehow the drag must be higher than the real heli. if i put more power then the take off climb get unrealistically to big.

Some way of reducing the drag or testing my theory?

Thanks you!
