[SU9] Question about CFD.

Dear Asobo,

I have enabled CFD for my project by looking at what the Cessna .cfg file has and after using the debug window. All good.

However how do we enable via the .cfg file the options for, Vtail Htail, rotor, etc. that are currently available via the debug window?

The Cessna only has 2 options enabled:

CFD_EnableSimulation = 1

CFD_ReinjectBody = 1

So wondering what the other options name are.

Thanks in advance,
Raul

Hello Sylvian,


Given the huge difference in trim that happens when you enable "CFD Reinject HStab" option, what is the recommended atributes to tune the aircraft back to realistic values of trim vs known attitude / speed targets from the real airplane?


Thank you!
