wow - is there enough public material to even model thsi eith any exactitude or will this have some liberties made in terms of fantasy?

This was my initial concern too, but from their website they they they have more than enough information to make an accurate model of it's avionics. I'm very interested in this model. Too bad it's not the B variant though.

Will be definitely keeping an eye on this but...

 

Working around this aircraft, I'd be shocked that there is enough public data to go off of to replicate the bare vehicle dynamics of this appropriately, let alone the very advance flight controls systems, and the even more crazily complex missions systems. It's just an insurmountable task to replicate what 24 MILLION LINES OF CODE DOES!

 

It just boggles my mind how complex the thing is, I mean the mission software has been in development for well over a decade and the bugs and issues with it are still keeping it as the highest risk item for the F-35.

 

I guess the thing is, if you don't model it accurately and just make stuff up, no one will know but a slight few...

 

This is why I am very skeptical of any DCS aircraft derived from aircraft post 2000 (the DCS A-10C is a special case where they had access to privleged data). Maybe this developer will have such access to, but that seems highly unlikely.

 

All the best of luck, but I just wanted to give my opinion on the matter.

 

EDIT: Just went over the site, this guy definitely has a ton of sim experience but it's just the scope of the matter that really scares me (I work in flight simulation too). Also as stated on the site "within the availability of non-classified information, the avionics system.. will be faithfully emulated". I am fairly confident in saying there is very little of substance in regards to F-35 avionics except for high level details that is Distribution A Unclassified.

"Witness mere F-14s taking off from adjacent flight decks, gracefully canting left and right, afterburners flaming, and there’s something that sweeps you away—or at least it does me. And no amount of knowledge of the potential abuses of carrier task forces can affect the depth of that feeling. It simply speaks to another part of me. It doesn’t want recriminations or politics. It just wants to fly.”

Hi Kinney,

 

Just a general question, how realistically do you believe that you can model the F-35A? I mean, in terms of flight dynamics to begin with at least :)

Great question - I feel best about the aero model. Based on surface area, weight, size and dynamics of the control surfaces, interviews with test pilots and pilots that have flown against the Lightning. Now we won’t be perfect – but we will be very close – AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO MODIFY AND CHANGE WITH NEW INFORMATION. Starting this project I knew there would be classified ranges and operating limits of avionic equipment, but even this I believe can be overcome with crew interface logic that will rival the traveling simulator. But aerodynamics – we get it!!

Rather shocking news indeed, especially since I just woke up. :)

 

To be honest, my first line of thinking was "wait, it's April 1st again???" But they seem to be serious. According to their website:

 

Within the availably of non-classified information, the avionic systems of the F-35A will be faithfully emulated. There is far more public information than you may imagine...

 

I have no idea how many information on F-35 is really classified, but general opinion on this forum was "enough to not be possibly modeled to DCS level". Now there comes somebody who claims the opposite. If they're right, it would be great (although I'm not a great fan of F-35 in general), but what I really don't want is DCS turning slowly into HAWX.

 

So I hope they're right and those who said "impossible" were wrong.

 

You know, never say something is impossible to do, because there might come somebody who does not know and gets it done. ;)

How is this 'with or without DCS World' going to work?

 

EDIT: To be more precise, if it works without DCS World what is the environment?

Is there a time frame yet for release?

 

Was about to ask the same? Though I would guess late 2014 at the earliest.
