Hi everyone,
I think that in Condor the Ls4 and Ls8 spoilers come less out of the wings than in reality. In reality the Ls8 and Ls4 also have two blades spoilers instead of one.
There is a workaround for this problem in Free Flight: Set the Thermal strength to "Very weak", so you don't need the spoilers in the lifts ...

May I respectfully suggest that you check the quality of your display or get a new pair of glasses :wink: :wink:

When you extend the spoilers full in Reality and look from the front then is there a gap between the the upper and the under spoiler blade, in condor is no gap, they look like not completely extended spoilers.
In reality the spoilers are a bit higher than in Condor (when fully extended).
Another point is that you cannot zoom so much on the wings and compere it with the photo of the link, you have to compere it from the same perspective and the same zoom.

Please remember that i'm just trying to help condor to be a bit more realistic and not to annoy you
regards, Tbi.

If that is the case on the real glider I would not fly it anymore and have the extension limits checked. They are supposed to overlap at full extension.

Check TM4020 for the LS4. It explicitly states the overlap between the bottom blade and the airbrake housing should at least be 5 mm! In the way the blades are attached to the arms that means the brake blades always overlap when watched from the front.

Technical drawings are included in the TM: https://www.dg-flugzeugbau.de/en/downlo ... TM4020.pdf

My point was that there are indeed two blades and not one as you said
