eurofighter typhoon


The Eurofighter Typhoon is a modern military aircraft which needs no introduction.
The Eurofighter Typhoon's manoeuvrability is outstanding in every way and can happily compete with the famous F22 in a dogfight, despite the absence of thrust vectoring. This X-Plane model attempts to capture the same feeling as the real aircraft, as you will get a sense of what it's like to experience 9g.
The exterior model is based and adapted to a low poly object which has texturing to rival frame-rate heavy models. The interior cockpit is also low poly, which ensures there is no FPS drop during important phases of flight.

Now the flightmodel: I think is the best you can get from this type of aircraft (very unstable configuration with high performances) running in X-Plane without plugin. What you will fly is simply the best tuning of PlaneMaker parameters and Airfoils.

Expecially for Airfoils was fundamental the contribution of Daniele Capizzi, who made possible to customize Airfoil polars throught his magic Excel spreadsheet. By arranging few keypoints for each airfoil coefficient (cl, cd, cm) the spreadsheet instantly soft interpolate the whole polar!
