Brave-Surfer

7,565 Viper3000ad  3 months ago
Auto Credit Based on Viper3000ad's Wind-surf 003


This aircraft belongs to the ultra-light category, yet it is quite special because it was constructed as an electric-amphibian. It weighs just 688 pounds with a realistic aspect ratio. It also has actual flight characteristics related to speed. It takes off at 57mph, maximum is 104mph and shows a loss of support below 35mph. To keep the weight low, no classic engines were used, since they require the extra weight of the fuel. It was still desirable to somehow transfer the feeling of light vibration on the flight, and the approach of an electric alternative.
The goal of the construction is to convey the ultimate freedom of the actual flight. The seat is placed on a Surf Board; it is at the point that if it were true you could touch the waves. At the pilot's seat there is a separate camera for panoramic views. The controller is functional and has a light indicator when the electrical systems are on; similar system has the bottom of the electric “engines”.
This aircraft is plausible and especially fun, you should not miss it from your collection .You can use it on take-offs and landings from the USS ”Tiny”, at Glider Races, (since it does not have classic engines) and in the “Going the distance” challenge.
Do not treat this build only as an airplane, but as another accessory for Brave Surfers. You can run “Carves”, “Aggro 360's” and sick “Stalls”. Grab the opportunity to finally BE the “Big Kahuna”.
Important: To use it, you must first turn ON the “electrical systems” with AG1. Note that on landing, the engines need 1-2minutes to power down completely. Have fun!

    @sheepsblood I didn't planning to create epic stuff, I was just having fun. And in brave surfer I had more fun from when I was making my hoverbike Xanthus, I love your hopper by the way.

    @EagleRider you are very kind, it is auto recovering at 48mph. I haven't measured the glide ratio but it is interesting because it changes as power turns on. Be careful when the engines stop at max Speed, it has the tenancy to pitch up. Thanks again for the comment and the vote @WaffleCakes Thanks for the spotlight!

    Really unique design, btw! The way it glides after the engines stop is the best part in my opinion.

    Edit: I forgot to upvote,I just really like this awesome idea!

    Good to know. I’m not scared of sharks but seeing one in the water like that would be a bit creepy.@Viper3000ad

    @MegaFox It has the same length as a wind-surf board, but it is based in a real ultralight schematic. The true version has very unique stashed biplane propellers witch provide extra thrust without increasing prop mass. SP has limitations as for the things you could do, so props are different, but when you turn off the engines you can discover the true virtue of brave surfer. It is a well balanced glider who can auto level at 50mph (almost) as the original. :-)

    @shipster Shaka is good name. With this plane and the surfer theme, came all the wave tribe slang. Did you knew that "Noahs" are sharks ? I think they added little color to the description. :-)
