IDG-MD-11X Development

Postby it0uchpods » Mon Aug 28, 2017 3:58 pm

Hello all
It is time that I share with you the first real previews of the it0uchpods Design Group MD-11X Project. The goal is to create a as realistic as possible MD-11 aircraft. This is my favorite aircraft, and have been working on this project for around 3-4 months now, and it is finally ready for a public announcement.

PICTURES REMOVED DUE TO OUT OF DATE

What about under the hood:

Accurate JSBsim FDM with accurate gear modelling (including the tendency to bounce)
Fully automatic hydraulic and electric system with working system controller (pneu, fuel to follow)
DU Improvements
Custom Flight Control system with spoilers, ailerons, elevators, and rudders fully simulated, including aileron droop, outer aileron lockout, and realistic spoiler deployment
New Canvas EAD (SD to follow)
New Advanced and Realistic Autopilot based on IT-AUTOFLIGHT
Fully simulated LSAS (Longitudinal Stability Augmentation System)
Custom FADEC with Thrust Limit system
And much, much, more

Every system has been crosschecked in operation with a real MD-11 FedEx FCOM, and the PMDG MD-11.

Variants:
MD-11 (Passenger)
MD-11F
MD-10 Addon

Planned:
MD-11ER
MD-11 Combi

Each model with it's own selection of liveries.

Note: It will have the same level of complexity as my Airbus', if not more. The best part, is it uses the it0uchpods Shared Libraries, so internal code improvements to one airplane can be backported/ported to the other. This has already been done a few times now. The Airbus Development is not stopped by this project.

Thanks to John Williams (tikibar) for his awesome work on the cockpit and model which I based my work on.

Kind Regards,
Josh

Looking great!

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

Hey Everyone!
The IDG-MD-11X and IDG-MD-10X are now available to download. See the first post.

Note: They are not yet as complex as the Airbus', and I didn't get the manual ignition working in time, but it is 100% flyable, as long as you keep your fuel managed.


Kind Regards,
Josh
