In this version, the vertical joystick movement controls the incidence of both the main wing and the horizontal stabilizer (opposite variation) and the horizontal movement of the joystick controls the position of the center of mass.

This is an upgraded version of the aeroscope. Besides improving of certain aspects of the old version, this version has both the main wing and the horizontal stabilizer controlled by a virtual joystick (presented on this blog before and used extensively). The horizontal movement of the joystick controls the angle of attack of the main wing and the vertical movement… Read More... "The Aeroscope – an upgraded version controlled by virtual joystick"
This is the “Aeroscope”, an oscilloscope style 2D dynamic flight simulator. It uses a the glider model designed in the previous tutorial. The glider is fully adjustable so you can change different parameters during the flight. Just hit “Run_pause” and the model will start. Reset it using the red button whenever you wish or whenever it breaks the convergence. For… Read More... "The Aeroscope – a preliminary version of a 2D flight simulator based on real physics"
This section continues the worksheet implementation of the dynamics formulas. [sociallocker][/sociallocker] Longitudinal Aircraft Dynamics #7- worksheet implementation of the real dynamics by George Lungu – This section continues with the dynamics formulas governing our 2D plane and their worksheet implementation. Some Reynolds number corrections: – We introduced one single named cell for the Reynolds number (Re) when in fact there… Read More...

In this section, the parameters cl, cd and cm are scaled back to the force of lift, drag and the pitching moment of the aircraft. After that, the numerical modeling scheme is described together with the macros behind it. At the end, the formulas for the angles of attack of the wing and the horizontal stabilizer are introduced.
