FXB = Fixed ballast, the new option in Condor 2 to fly at max weight

So he means the Ventus3-15-FXB.xcp file that isn't there in the zip file from MPT..?
OK... now I understand.

Have you seen a difference in wing loading when activating the fixed ballast ?
I haven't.
Look at your Flightplan.fpl in the Pilots\Your_Name folder :
............................
[Plane]
Class=All
Name=Ventus3-15
Skin=Default
Water=155
FixedMass=0
CGBias=4
............................
And then take a look at the README.txt :
For each glider, there are two files (except for single seaters whose fixed ballast is 0)

- glider.xcp : minimum dry mass (single-seaters : no fixed ballast, two-seaters : one pilot)
- glider-FXB.xcp : maximum dry mass (single-seaters : fixed ballast, two-seaters : two pilots).

Sorry for the confusion with FXB :wink:

I was confused with the term “dry-mass”. I thought this meant “no water “ :roll:

It does indeed, but the fixed-ballast in Condor means that dry-mass may (or not, depending on plane type) have different values
It's the same IRL : heavier or lighter pilots bringing more or less equipment, food supplies or parachute with them.

Following the release of the ASK21, I have updated the polar set, it is available for download :

https://drive.google.com/open?id=10Z62G ... QGaeIKMzlC

The set is complete with all the previous (unchanged) polars.

As usual, taking at look at the README.txt is more than recommended

Hello!

From change log:

– enhanced flight models and performance of some planes

Looks like some gliders have different polar now. We don't know unf. which ones, but I guess LS8 or Antares maybe?
No matter where you go... There you are...

To my knowledge, only the Antares polar has been modified (and it has been updated in XCSoarPolarsHU4.zip)

I just re-checked, the LS8 polar is unchanged

Thanks again for this Bre901. Do you have an updated comparison polar chart with the newer gliders on it also?
