Extra 330: Seitenruder Wirkung müsste ca 20% mehr sein. Höhenruder wirkt monstermässig, so dass Rückentrudeln sehr einfach ist (zu einfach für meinen Geschmack ). Aber Messerflug Looping ist im Vergleich dazu viel zu schwierig.

Piper: Verhalten im Torque Training ist unrealistisch, sie geht trotz Vollgas nicht vom Boden weg aber bleibt troztdem senkrecht ohne abzukippen

Trojan: Verhalten im Torque Training ist unrealistisch, sie lässt sich viel zu leicht halten und müsste eigentlich nach kurzer Zeit abkippen

Open issues from 1906:

DassaultMystere:
2000 rev/min. when turbine idle is too low.

FK 12 Comet:
Max climb rate of 20m/s (2019-02-24) too high.

Tortuga Update:
Available version 2019-02-11
Installed version 2019-02-20
Was version downgrade your intention?

You can do Torque Training only with models, having enough power to provide a positive climb rate in this flight mode (this is realistic).
Trojan: Engine does not provide enough power. It's very hard for me to do keep the model upright.

Extra 330XL (2019-02-25):
Air resistance too high. Try switch engine off and do emergency landing.
Compare against Trojan or Extra300, they have good gliding performance.

Of course enough power is needed for torque training. What I meant is that some models keep standing upright on the ground when the initial height is low, say 1m or 2m.

Air resistance of Extra 330XL is better now.
Air resistance of Extra 330 can be reduced, too.
EasyStar_Aileron better now.

I've just downloaded the release version V8.0.1912 for Linux from the homepage, unpacked the tar.gz archive, and started the shell script as usual, but this version does not work

The Beta version runs without any errors.
Any ideas?
