DG a nice surprise but I think there’re a few of us that would of preferred a 303, hopefully that one will see the light eventually.

Small request for the future; would it be possible in a future update to allow us to view the polar and adjust ballast in the condor GUI prior to buying/activating a glider? Presently that tab is unavailable prior to activation.

Thanks to the whole dev and beta team for their efforts over the years. I look forward to the next big update, hopeful for more weather!

Thanks for it!

Nice! Thank you! Very nice implementation!

Surprised the polar for Arcus and Duo are pretty much the same up to 190 km/h, when flying at the same wing loading. Flying faster than 190 is only required for MC settings of more than 3 m/s. At some speeds Arcus slightly better, at others Duo is slightly better.
The Arcus in Condor can get a slightly higher wing loading than the Duo, but seems to be limited to 750 kg max weight, while the real one has a 800 kg limit, which is also the limit for FAI 20m class. So it cannot reach its full potential in Condor.

For contests, the Duo should be superior, since handicap is used for 20m class, and performance is almost the same.

Only the new Arcus has 800 kg (850 even when flown in open class). Thats the version with the new winglets and new stabilizer. Old versions of the pure glider have 750 kg. The model was completed over a year ago. Also as there is no data on the new Arcus the old winglets version was modelled.

Arcus is superb, near to the real thing in handling IMO.

the arcus is great, the instruments are the right size, you can see them very well and not blurry when you fly with the occulus, beautiful machine

I was undecided which one to get so i decided for all 3 :D
The Ka6Cr was installed by just 5 min and I was already competing online lol

Please OXO look at the top vario on the Ka6 it seems like the hand is not centered correctly

Screenshots please
I just looked at it, I don't see a problem
It stops slightly before +5 or -5, whereas the pneumatic vario goes all the way to +/-5, which might have confused you

I don't have a place to host images so I hope that above links to discord works, I'm aware of different range between Pneumatic and Electronic.
When I dive and maintain attitude to stabilize compensation i read 10+ on the Pneumatic and only 4 on the Electronic Vario, and it appears like the hand rotation center is not located at the center of the instrument quadrant.

The pneumatic vario goes from -5 to +5

... or are you on the other side of the big pond and using strange units ?

Yes Bre901 I'm on the other side of the pond and for some reason that i can't understand we keep using Imperial unit :?
If I set option to Metric both varios works just fine,
