Plane Creators can you...

Post by HelioGnr » Mon Aug 08, 2005 4:33 pm

Is it possible to create some plane like mine in my avatar(I did it in paint) or like Mythrilfan`s avatar...
It would be great to fly with those `heavy`wings...

in PAINT!? wow, thats a great effort, couldnt do anything like mine without photoshop 7 lol! Good work! Oh, and i think the idea of making a plane for fs9/8 would be more popular for, well, they are more popular :) . I (of course) support this idea.

That would be one helluva plane to fly. Great power to weight ratio. Problem would be in the flight dynamics. Two major wings would make it stable, but not very manueverable. Reason is in physics. You change the center of the apex in a turn. The second wing would try and push the plane forward while the first one is trying to turn it. They would cancel each other out to a slow wide turn. There fore not feaseable to fly.

I know it´s not posible, if it was possible there would be planes like that...
But isn´t it fictionally possible to configure some parameters or options in config or something (i don´t understand about creating or modifying a/c in FS) and "lie" physics etc?

it should be. As far as i have understood it, the shape of the plane does not matter any more than the colour of it. Theoretically it should be possible to make a flying box outmaneuver the f-16.

it would be good to put the second set of engines farther out so that the second set isnt sucking up the exhaust and getting the engine messed up(real life) i could probobly make it for fs but i still havent figuered out how to make planes in x-plane they make it so complicated.



ill see what i can do
