Wills Wing Falcon 4 - Standalone version - Does not use Add-on
3.0.2.0

THIS GLIDER CAN BE USED STAND-ALONE

It will not have a variometer (without modification), flight computer (without modification) or be foot launchable without add-ons but it can be used to check out a flying hang glider model and it will appear as-is in your hanger!


The WW Falcon 4 is a hang glider of the floater type.  This glider can be flown in very light conditions and still soar.   A great first glider that will give new hang glider pilots confidence in launching, landing, and flying a hang glider in MSFS 2020.

Performance
This glider has a speed range of 18-50 mph, a sink rate of 100 f/min and a maximum glide ration 12/1.

Model Details
This glider comes with a highly detailed model for an hang glider.  All components of the glider are included:

  • Aircraft frames include multiple Control frame types.
    Animated pilot that moves with control movements
    Highly detail Harness.
    Variometer that position can be configured.
    Detailed fabric sail cloth.

Liveries
This glider comes with 6 liveries and 2 different control bar configurations:

  • Aluminum Airfoil control bar with transparent sail inserts
    Carbon Fiber Airfoil control bar with transparent main sail
    All liveries have a configurable variometer that can be placed in multiple positions.

This glider can be winch towed, aerotowed (with an appropriate tow vehicle) from any airport that is supported in MSFS 2020.   You can also slew the aircraft to any location on Planet Earth 

Controls
Requires basic flight controls: Ailerons, elevator, spoilers, gear position.

Animations
The glider has an animated pilot that moves with control movements.  This includes a detailed model. The Sail is flexible and is animated for proper sail behavior.

UPGRADES
This glider is a stand-alone aircraft that you can download and try basic hang gliding in MSFS 2020, but if you want it to do more than this you can visit our website and download the following free applications that will let you do the following:

Your Personal Site Database - The Hang Gliding Files

  • Create your own new flying sites and use them in MSFS 2020
    Create your own custom scenery within MSFS 2020 without any coding.
    Manage flight tasks you can fly with friends.
    Install flight tasks into the variometer/flight computer to activate that inside MSFS 2020.

I REPEAT, THIS GLIDER DOES NOT HAVE A VARIOMETER or FLIGHT COMPUTER:

  • All hang glider variometers are in the Widget as shared code amoung all hang gliders.  All hang gliders derive from the Widget base gliders.  This glider is meant to be used without the widget and is intended for those just wanting to try out a hang glider in the sim.  If you want to soar a hang glider, you need the widget version!
    If the widget is not there and/or you do not have the proper aircraft.cfg to use the widget, the vario will remain OFF, you will only see a blank screen.

    This does 3 things (for me anyway).

    1) I only have 1 vario to update no matter how many gliders I make, and
    2) All glider have a root glider they derive from (in the Widget). This ensures that every pilot (with a widget) will always see a hang glider in multiplayer. Stand-alone versions are just that, they stand alone.  They have no variometer, they have no ability to foot launch or move on the ground unless the widget is installed later.
    3) I can provide the simplest way for some one to just try it out.

IF YOU WANT A VARIOMETER WITH YOUR GLIDER, DOWNLOAD THE STANDARD VERSION AND THE WIDGET.
