Units Meters
Description This model was reproduced from drawings in the RUAG datasheet for the Do 228, and includes the newer generation 5-bladed propellers with 2.5m diameters. Model primarily meant for visualization and layout design, but could be used for CFD if some aspects of the model, like the wheel fairing, are improved. The model uses the Do A-5 airfoil from Airfoil Tools, which is stated to be a reconstruction, so I have no idea how accurate it is. The wing incidence is set to zero degrees, so if used for CFD this might need to be set more appropriately.
Source Quality

3 - The source material used to create this model was Good. This means good 3-view drawings were used to create the model.
