At Fly Away Simulation, we provide a whole load of excellent packages that look and feel fantastic – and we love each and every one of them individually. However, we also love to pick a certain download for each day and showcase it for its overall quality, attention to detail and class. Today, we want to look at the FS2004 Diamond HK-36 Motor Glider.​

Designed by the excellent Pavel Toman, Barry Blaisdell and Bob May of Premier Aircraft Design, this remake of one of the most popular gliders out there captures the imagination and brings to life all of the most impressive FS2004 features.

Although it might not quite be the standard that FSX aircraft is, this modification takes everything that FS2004 was capable of and puts it into a fresh and unique design. It captures many of the most important features of an aircraft such as;

  • Completely accurate flight dynamics with plenty of changes throughout to ensure that it runs at the smoothest it possibly can, whilst maintain the true style and form of the real thing

  • Panels that have been created from scratch to create an interior cockpit that looks fantastic and carries the message of the real thing effortlessly – it looks brilliant, captures the imagination, and can be very easy to get to grips with

  • The virtual cockpit has been included, refined and optimized to work to the very limits of FS2004 and includes as many different changes and modifications as it possibly can for the best performance

  • A full sound package that was made just or this glider so that you get the sounds and reactions of the real thing, not just generic glider noises that never seem to really fit the atmosphere or style of the aircraft itself

  • Various animated features lie flexing wings and an opening canopy to capture all of the right features that make this little glider so popular with the various people who have flown one in the past

It’s a classy little design and manages to grab all of the coolest features of the real thing. The ‘Super Dimona’ was first released in 1980 before being re-released nine years later as the HK36R. These changes to the aircraft over time made it a more refined glider, and eventually became one of the most prominent motor gliders of its time, inspiring a generation of smaller aircraft to hit the markets and actually succeed.

Started by the H36 Dimona, this eventually came along to change the entire prospect of the Diamond Aircraft Industries team. The Austrians had mild to moderate success in that timeframe, but the introduction of the HK36 and its cousins made them a far more prominent part of the glider and aviation community as a whole. Their committed creation style endeared the aircraft to many and in the end, more than 900 were created.

If you want to fly a representative of this 900 and see just how fun flying around can be in a glider, you need to try this!

Editorial

Looking for something that’s a bit more engaging than your usual aircraft? Then this motor glider is just what you need!

I was asked to try it out by a friend who was a massive fan of such aircraft but had doubts about how authentic it was. As someone who has actually used this model in the past in real-life I felt compelled to give it a go. It soon felt engaging enough for me to want to take it a bit further, helping me understand just what position I was going to be when we were moving forward.

The Super Diamond is a charming little piece of kit that really should give everyone all the help they need to understand what a glider should feel like. The brilliant work done on making sure that the cockpit feels nice and unique was a major factor for me, helping me take myself away from the usual aviation challenges that I have with getting to grips with a new cockpit.

It feels quite minimalized which you may expect, although it still has more than enough stuff to go through to give you a really engaging, exciting take on this particular model.

I was able to get into the way that it flies quite quickly thanks to the major changes that have been introduced along the way with this. The developer behind the mod has done an exceptional job of making it quite easy to fly and understand, also ensuring that I’ll can feel the genuine difference between this and a normal plane.

It even comes with great sounds and high-end virtual cockpit improvements to help it feel more like home. This removes the generic feel that many mods suffer from and also makes it a lot easier for people like myself to buy in. having used it in reality I know what to expect and I have to say that everything from the dynamics to the checklists provided are well on course to being what we need.

It feels fair to fly with and it’s an exceptionally easy system to master thanks to the way that it works. The whole plan of the aircraft is spot on with the size and scale being just right, not to mention the great work done on the model.

I was massively impressed and would recommend all fans or users of this aircraft to give it a try. It really does a good job of capturing all that is right about the real thing.
