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

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


              • Revert the flap lift fix for the bug that was now fixed...


              • Hotfix for world 3 update
              • Flap lift scalar halved

              Version 0.7.5


              Fadec controls Torque and not directly power. Less overshooting and smoother control.

              Under -10°C the engine becomes Torque limited. Max power ~98%

              Run-up RPM fixed

              ECU Test behavior improved.

              ECU run-up no longer moves the throttle lever(thanks Abdullah), and moving it above 5% will cancel the runnup

              Tool tips for ECU test added and removed incorrect throttle % indication.

              ECU voters are inop, because you guys cant stop playing around

              Engine will sputter when overloaded for too long and if the fuel is too cold (-42°C)

              ECUs will fail when the engine is failed.

              Inverted flight will cause oil and fuel starvation

              Fuel temperature is simulated using simplified physics

              - Lower fuel quanitiy will cause higher fuel temps.

              - Transfering fuel will cause temperatures to equalise


              Increased adverse yaw

              Increased ailerson effectiveness

              Increased control athourity all around.

              Dihedral stability increased.

              Tweeked ground effect

              Better nosewheel control at higher speeds

              Less dampening on the suspension.

              Low power cruise speeds are more accurate

              Landing flaps more draggy, approach is better


              ELT resets fuel totaliser

              Fuel totaliser stops counting when unlimted fuel is selected

              Added rudder trim for and for those who like to hand fly

              Added "Debugging" CAS messages to G1000. ("incompatible Livery", FADEC) to help debug

              Autopilot PIDs improved. hopefully no endless climb anymore

              Autopilot no longer controls rudder (yes it did that)

              Removed ground tug

              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
              • Added fuel heating
              • Engine indications only stop after the engine has stopped turning
              • Fuel quantity 20.5 gal with 1 gal unusable
              • Lowest Fuel temp -25°C, not -30 (DA62 is -30)
              • 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
              • Changed sitting attitude 1-1.5° nose up (rear wheels clip through the ground slightly)
              • 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 :)
              • Fixed fuel tranfer rate (actually 1gal/min now)


              • Hotfix for Asobo's update

              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
