Update! MSFS2020 - Diamond DA40 NGX Improvements Mods - V.0.7

Performance and UX fixes to the DA40 to match the real thing

          Version 0.7

          • FADEC added with combustion extinction (not active on the ground)
          • Max RPM limited to 2100 under -10°C (as per books)
          • CAS messages: High oil pressure, Coolant level, Altitude and Vertical speed

          • Removed fuel totaliser softkeys to avoid confusion
          • Fuel totaliser behaves like an actual fuel totaliser. Turn the plane off to reset it (no softkeys to do so sadly :'( )
          • Improved Autopitlot PIDs
          • Fixed heading Bug bug
          • A shit-ton of changes to the flightmodel. Lower Attitudes, correct climb performance etc etc

          • Increased prop drag
          • Restored ground effect
          • Added .FLT files for in air spawn lovers


          • Textures and Models fixed by BilingualHarp 7 <3 
          • Added His liveries and Prop mod too :)

          • Hotfix for Asobo's update
          • Fixed missing PFD frame and missing trim indication
          • The power setting is kept when switching between PropControl and Full FADEC
          • Added windshield defrost (permanently on as the levers are static)

          Version 0.6.4

          • Improved PIDs for sim update
          • Added an "RPM flatspot" between 91 and 93% load for QOL
          • added back 2° of trim
          • Fuel transfer rate set to a more realistic rate (1 gal/min)

          Changed the RPM curve. Windmilling idle set to 2100rpm
          Added a PDF explaining how FADECs work and how to change
          Reduced Turbo spool up time
          Improved Autopilot PIDs, again

          Other stuff
          Autopilot fixed for (ish)
          Reduced Trim effectiveness for the update, from 9° to 5°

          Version v0.5.9

          Engine indications and CAS messages react to the Master switch state.
          “propControl_Engine.cfg” for "PropControl_FADEC (Standard)
          Default registration changed to OE-DCI
          UI name changed to DA40NGX
          Probably changes some other stuff I dont remember lol

          Version v0.5.8

          Autopilot PIDs redone

          Cl Table redone

          Roll, pitch and yaw inertia increased

          Engine has been angled down 5° (not visually) to counter the pitch up moment

          A lot of other tiny changes

          Propeller control “FADEC” now standard

          Version v0.5.7.1

          Added Fuel pressure CAS callout,

          Fuel pressure increased aswell

          HDG mod Autopilot wiggle should be gone.

          Version v0.5.7

          Improved outside lighting by Uwajimaya

          G1000 limitations set (FLC, VS mode)

          Some autopilot change ideas stolen from Jonasbeaver

          Improved ground handling, No long a free castering nosewheel. Ty tclayton2k

          Tail: reduced trim deflection

          Ailerons: Increased adverse yaw, effectiveness reduced at higher load factor

          Low power correction added to FADEC

          Wing: Added 0.75° of incidence, Increased flaps lift, reduced clean lift

          Version 0.5.6

          Engine, System and Fuel pages added with G1000v2

          Reduced elevator effectiveness

          "DON'T SINK" callout fixed in G1000v2, added back

          Gearbox temperature CAS message added

          Version 0.5.5

          FADEC 0.1.5: ECU will no longer equalise power during an idle decent

          Fuel tank capacity increased to 19.5gal

          Made flightmodel more slippery and reduced engine thrust to match

          Flaps more lifty and draggy.

          Engine oil temperature and pressure behave more realistically

          Engine coolant temperature too (ish)

          Fuel temperature mapped to total air temperature


          G1000 Gauges match better

          Removed "STALL" and buggy "DON'T SINK" callouts

          Version 0.5

          NOW WITH FADEC (v0.1)

          MTOW set back to 2288

          back to stock G1000 (changes were not needed lol)

          Version 0.4

          Now installable through the community folder!

          Version 0.3

          Takeoff, climb and cruise performance improved, closer to AFM

          Fuelflow closer to the real plane untill 90% ish.

          Changed MTOW to 2888lbs

          Added comments to g1000 xml

          Autopilot wiggle reduced

          Version 0.2

          Changed minimum governor rpm to 1800 prop RPM

          Version 0.1

          given the engine the real displacement and compression ratio

          Increased manifold pressure slightly

          Increased cooling slightly (to handle the power that you should have gotten before)

          Changed specific fuel consumption to that of a diesel engine

          A lot of efficiency changes to get the fuel flow close to real (still needs work)

          Changed min and max prop Beta

          Made prop governor a little more aggressive

          Changed fuel type to JET-A

          G1000 load calculation fixed (was reading too low)

          G1000 Engine pages

          The G1000 mod is a must for the gauges and new engine pages to work.


          Drag and drop "DA40-NGX" into the community folder

          If you see the thumbnail in game, you have installed it correctly
