In the Aerofly FS 2 an
airbrake represents a controllable area that creates drag.
Other Aerodynamic classes
The airbrake is probably using something similar to this formula:
F_d = 0.5 * rho * v^2 * Cd * Area * Control
- v is the velocity
- Cd is the drag coefficient for the maximum
Areais the surface size in square meters perpendicular to X0.
Controlis the dynamic input values between
1.0that scales the Area linearly
X0is the direction of the airbrake where it is acting (usually this is the x-axis but it could also be pointing upwards.
- rho is the air density at the Body.R position in the world (+R0 properly rotated with the Body orientation as far as the author of this text wants to believe)
Then the calculated drag is acted upon the
Body at the
R0 location along the
X0 axis. The real formula used may be a lot more complex to account for the rotation speed of the
