After my previous question about the effect of induced drag on Cd0, here I am again because I am unable to set the drag I desire in the sim.
I have created an Excel to help me calculating the drag, and it works as I am able using it to calculate exactly the FSX and Total NEW value that were discussed in my previous question on the topic.
However, I find it impossible to obtain the same drag in the sim than the one I calculate in my Excel.
The sim drag is consistently lower than the drag from Excel.
Here is a link to the file, for you to experiment with it: https://1drv.ms/x/s!AohwTJSZ0H8DgcEdzeuwq9Zj5EraZQ?e=wblNY4
To use it, simply load the default 747, and note the CL (Cz) and CD (Cx) from the Tracking debug window and put them in the file.
I would like to know what is going on with the drag calculations, as it looks like I am missing something somewhere and it is really hindering me in my progress.
