Feature List (Ones in italics are planned and going to most likely be added) -A Sound Engine E2 that emits sound based on your position relative to the plane’s -A Missile Warning System, it scans for incoming Anti-Air missiles and alerts the pilot -My hologram pilot’s hat
-Only non-fin propulsion/maneuvering is forward applyForce
-Uses a stabilization E2
-Not quite seen in the video, but has new look-locking technology (this was grounded with the F-16, but was improved and added in here)
-Weldable Missiles - Weld, type “requery” in chat and you’re good to go
-Retractable Landing Gear
Good work man! Really nice stuff. Flies good from what I can see. Nice weapon system also, controls seem nice and smooth. I like that, but it doesn’t seem to have a vertical stabilizer, It would help a lot on stabilizing yaw and would help on turns, if you added a rudder you could turn without as much roll and get much better control if flying slowly, adding flaps would also make slow flight better, if done right you can practically hover in a landing. It’s quite interesting.
It looks good and It flew decently but, like said before the landing gears look weird and it has no vertical stabilizers. Also, It has stabilators, but they are not used and the elevon setup doesn’t work with these kind of planes (you said that you needed to do a lot of tweaking to make it stable, so that may be the problem).
I agree that the elevon for this kind of plane would not work very well compared to if you just added a simple verticle stablizer. If you notice, all of the elevon type aircraft have SOME amount of verticle stablization, even if it combines the elevator with the rudder at an angle like the F-117. yours does not have any. It looks like you went for the F-22 look but didnt finish it. For the landing gear, you want to have 3 points of contact with the ground so it wont tip over easily. The front looks ok but the rear one should fold out sideways hinged under the wing and the wheels come from inside the body and swing out.
Thanks for the comments everyone. Right now, I’m intending to see if I can’t make it lighter and add vertical stabilizers (per your comments). The main thing I’m looking to do is increase it’s maneuverability.
About the stability comments, it flies pretty much straight as an arrow with the Wire Flight System on it, and all vert-stab’s would do is tie into that (not controllable by the pilot).
While the jet may fly straight w/o any trouble, you will notice a significant improvement in controls when you are banking hard and using any rudder controls with a verticle stablizer, I certainly did.
