This is my current project, an Airplane! (i like stuff that flies)
I know i just posted a flying car yesterday, but this ain’t a 10 min contraption, i’ve just had it on hold because i had technical difficulties (it currently persists of 85 props, which is hard to keep in order :p).
Anyhow!, as you can see it’s got a body made up of phx parts, including Flaps, Ailerons, rudders and elevators (yes 2 elevators :P), it has an EP2 Jalopy engine and will have a flight computer (kinda) which you can see at the bottom picture (
I might make it EGP instead of GPU though).
Furthermore the actual thrust of the plane will be applied to the engine via E:applyForce(), based on the RPM of the Propeller for added realism (yey) and of course the whole thing will be kept airborne via Fin tool.
Hmm… what else… oh yes! It also has actual engine sounds with one for startup, one for running(adjusting pitch according to engine rpm) and one for shut down (thank you Postman of the Wiremod forum)
edit done with the control-surface… controls and made some custom sounds for the engine (need to put more work into the sounds though, the idle loop and shutoff sounds doesn’t sound right yet)
Replaced the plane pic’s with a video
My first Testflight, as you can see i didn’t think of the speed Vs. map size when i started this…
“tighten up” the control surfaces
add flap and engine indicators to flight comp.
maby make it prettiers…
any other ideas?
