We will document here the fdm properties used in FG, starting with those present in the fdm state. As some are not concordant between yasim/jsbsim, their actual meaning dépending the fdm will be exposed, and we will fill the table each time one conflict is resolved.

  • Property name: the name of the property in the fg tree, with a link to the property description, as seen by the different fdm and the choice made.
