The first public beta version of Draken 4.1 can now be downloaded using the link at the bottom of this post. Reading the following information before downloading will probably save both you and me a lot of pain, so please do.
- Please read the End User License Agreement (EULA) that is included in the installer, and make sure you understand it before completing installation. By installing the software, you are bound by the agreement. The EULA can also be found here.
- The installer will overwrite any previously installed files relating to Draken in the Effects, Gauges, Sounds and Additional Scenery folders of FSX. If you have made any modifications to these files on your computer, please remember to make backups. To revert to a previous version, just run the installer for that version again.
- The Flight Manual has not yet been updated to reflect the latest changes. However, it is still compulsory reading before asking me any questions of the “how to start the engine” kind.
- The navaids in the included scenery (Barbro) are not always at their precise locations, although they are perfectly usable for navigation. They will be corrected in the final release.
- A brief list of the changes made between 4.0 and 4.1b1 can be found in a previous post. There have been additional changes since then, and I will try to update the change list as soon as possible.
- Feedback should preferably be sent to me using the contact form but if you already have the address you can also just email me the usual way.

The cockpit with the 3d gauges is really nice, before installing this beta I have to uninstall the previous version? Because I don’t have noted any difference in the fuel consumpion.
You don’t have to uninstall 4.0 before installing the beta, as they are in separate aircraft folders. The positions of switches etc. in the 4.0 aircraft will be set to zero though, as the gauge config file is shared.
TFSC (fuel consumption) is specific to each aircraft so they should not be the same. You can check the fuel flow in the tooltip of the fuel gauge.
hi Thomas! first off i am not a pilot:
flight Dynamics feels very realistic. i watch a lot of wind tunnel spin and aoa tests except saabs, and just some minute ago i crashed 2 times because of flat spin and reverse flat spin.:) i think in fsx ,it is very hard to add spin dynamics to a plane and most payware
aircrafts have terrible bug when they enter spin. Spining upward or spining at same level of altitude is most frequently encountered bug i think. your aircraft makes me excited because flight feels realistic, thank you tomas.
and i can surely say that bird will be very detailed when it finished.
my only wish : more detailed cockpit textures or new cockpit
