  1. Hi, I am trying to setup a switch to toggle the Vario/ glide angle on the C4 unit. I have discovered in FSUIPC "Toggle vario" and of course I can choose action when button released. However I cannot find a suitable title for this (ie best glide angle ). I am not that good with mouse macros and I am sure someone will have found an elegant solution to this. Thank you Regards David I must say its good in Switzerland too !
  2. Hi, I should have not said download but printed off the included package as you suggested. Thank you for your help Regards David
  3. Thank you for the video link Learnt a lot and wondered if you can suggest any more like it. For instance beginners guide to the C4 computer would b good. Although I have downloaded the handbook and i believe its calibrate for the Discus as given I am unsure how to put it into practice and a beginners guide would be ideal. Also any further video info all consumed with the same ineterest. Thanks again David Also before I appear a complete idiot there are 4 topics started by me in this forum which are a mistake due to my inability to upload pics on four occasions and it seems to have created four topics. I would like to have them removed and am trying to contact the webmaster. Any ideas ?
  4. Thank you both for your help and interest David
  5. Joachim, Thank you for your reply and comments. What I therefore dont understand is what the water ballast is for if not to alter or maintain a desired CG ? In the model plane I fly we add and reduce weight before and after the CG to change its position and to achieve level trimmed flight. How does this alter on a glider? Perhaps you could advise me of a simple instruction book or doc on flying the Discus which would help me understand this a little better. In any event thank you once again and i enclose a couple of models that I currently fly in the manner described. Regards David
  6. Hi, I have assigned a throttle quadrant lever to the elevator trim using FSUIPC which works very well. It has a large movement and in principal works fine. Its the center which is always not in the center. ie I need to balance the aircrafts C.G. better and I have tried this by dumping water ballast which makes a difference in the right direction but not enough. I am always almost flying with appx -17 of trim and feel the need to get this in level flight more around the zero. When I am flying my model jets I would physically add/reduce weight to get the trim around the center. I have also tried adjusting the center of trim in the FSUIPC axis calibration panel but too the same effect. It flies but I cant believe it right as it is given the superb finesse of this aircraft. regards David PS Or where can I add some weight in the nose ?
  7. Hi, I am new to gliding and the Discus is great however i am using FSUIPC to operate the elevator trim. I get the full range but always seem to be at 18-20 down trim. I have tried re centering the FSUIPC settings and have dumped all the water. The water ballast has a slight nose down effect when dumping but it still all settles with down trim being required. How do i set up these aircraft to be neutral trim. Is there an aircraft set menu which I have not discovered yet. My friend who is a gliding instructor is going to come and advise me on the ways of the C4 unit and I suppose will offer trim advice as well but since he does not know the program I need to know how to adjust settings like ballast and passenger weight etc. Any help welcome Thank you David

    Peter, apologies I pressed the wrong button. I thought this was the Discus forum. Enjoying your Cumulus programme and thank you David
