Almost all real systems have been modelled and working as the real thing Flight dynamics modelled 99% close to the real aircraft; fully tested and validated by qualified real-world F-104 pilot Fully functional and close to real NASARR R-15, A/G and A/A mode with: - STT (Single track target) - LOCK-ON - ATTACK - GROUND MAP PENCIL - GROUND MAP SPOILER - CONTOUR MAP - TERRAIN AVOIDANCE Aerodynamic pitch up, inertia coupling and BLC system reproduced Payload drop actually changes aircraft weight, balance and drag as well Inertial navigator Litton LN-3 fully implemented
DDI (DYNAMIC DRAG INDEX)
The SSW F/RF-104G uses the Dynamic Drag Index concept; i.e. when you load/drop external loads not only is the GW changed but also the drag coefficient is affected and the model aerodynamics change accordingly. This is particularly important in the F-104 where external loads affect greatly the dynamic behaviour of the model.
A custom sound set has been developed from scratch, using live recording to give you a full immersion into the Zipper environment. If you are a Zipper fan,you will enjoy staying outside and 'playing' with the throttle, listening to it's unique voice.
