A-10 Flight Model Improvement Demonstrator

To demonstrate that it is perfectly possible to change the handling of aircraft within ArmA to produce *reasonable* flight handling.

This version has:
    - Improved Acceleration
    - Slower more stable pitch rate
    - Adjusted roll rate
    - Increased Lift
    - More "positive" control response
    - Does not bleed speed in a turn as fast as Stock values
Extract the file to your ArmA\Addons directory or as we always recommend use mod folders to keep your mods organized and prevent errors.
Check our FAQ for a clear explanation.

Included .pbo files:

Technical - How its done:
The changes are simple but require some O2 knowledge. Essentially its a reset of mass distribution in the Geolod and a small config change.

CONFIG Changes are:
		aileronSensitivity = 1;
		elevatorSensitivity = 1;
		envelope[]= {x,x,x,x,x,x,x,x,x,x,X,X,X,X};

Model Changes:

Reset mass to 0 in Geo Lod.
Addition of 4 "trim blocks" in the geometry.
Add total mass to all objects.
Reassign 90% of the mass to the "trim blocks".
Move the trim blocks around to place the CofG in the desired spot.

PBO and test. Adjust the trim block positions as required. Do NOT use the Sensitivity values in the config for major changes.

To increase the roll rates - move the left and right trim blocks close to the centre line.
To decrease the roll rates - move the left and right trim blocks further from the centre line.

To increase the Pitch rates - move the fore and aft trim blocks closer to the CofG.
To decrease the Pitch rates - move the fore and aft trim blocks further from the CofG.

Yaw rate/sensitivity can be affected in similar ways but generally means the AI cannot use the aircraft.

Use the geo LoD to affect the handling until you are close to what you want then use the Sensitivity values to fine tune the handling.

I will post a proper tutorial at some point later on.
