New propeller physic in SU8 beta

Hi,

With SU8 Beta, a new propeler physic has been implemented. From the comments read when this SU8 was delivered, it is mentioned that this should allow the 3thThird Party Devs to be able to learn about this improved flight model.
I know from the release notes that only three aircraft have this but I've had a go at the C152 and haven't seen any information.

Only some news parameters in the propeller section of engine CFG:

prop_mod_use_modern = 1
prop_mod_use_absorbed_torque = 1
prop_mod_aspect_ratio = 6
prop_mod_lift_slope_cf = 3
prop_mod_aoa_twist_delta_deg = 6
prop_mod_aoa_lift_delta_deg = 4
prop_mod_stall_aoa_scaler = 1.75
prop_mod_stall_aoa_power = 1
prop_mod_beta_def_at_ratio = 0.75
prop_mod_lift_efficiency_cf = 0.2
prop_mod_zero_lift_drag_cf = 0.02
prop_mod_reverse_left = 0
prop_mod_reverse_right = 0
prop_mod_reverse_centre = 0
prop_mod_ang_offset_left = 0
prop_mod_ang_offset_right = 0
prop_mod_ang_offset_centre = 90
prop_mod_moment_scalar_pitch = 1
prop_mod_moment_scalar_yaw = 1
prop_mod_moment_scalar_roll = 1

Is it possible to have more information to start updating our planes ? Does anyone have more information ?

I used a mixture of the 152 & 208 figures on the G36 Improvement Mod as a test and experimenting now. I 'seem' to have a reduction in airspeed but that could be subjective. I need to do more testing but I'll add any findings here.

Hello

The new documentation for SU8 is being prepared. We will let you know as soon as it's available.
