Kitfox 5 Series STi #FreedomFox

Introducing the Kitfox 5 series STi, the plane you've all been waiting for!

This particular plane is the one owned by Trent Palmer, my favourite YouTuber! Go and subscribe, you won’t regret it ;)


Features:

Every single last detail, realistic performance and characteristics including prop wash, half fuel, realistic wing area (the extra is from the tail and the fuselage drag wing), super detailed logos, flaperons that don’t really work because SimplePlanes is stupid in that aspect, opening doors, reall cool Osmo camera view in the cockpit real nice to fly :)

The Osmo camera view is really cool


Controls:

Act 1: open doors
Act 2: Turn on landing lights
VTOL down: flaps
Trim: trim

Flight:

Takeoff:

Flaps half down, trim first notch forward, full power, use yaw to keep straight (this is a taildragger), pull up at about 35mph, climb at about 60-70 mph.

Landing:

Flaps and trim all the way down, approach at about 45-50 mph, touch down at about 40, it’s easier with a bit of throttle, use a lot of yaw to stay straight while on the ground.

Cruze:

Throttle about 70-75%. It should fly nice and level.


Pictures:

You may notice that the wing view and the looking back interior view are a bit too zoomed in. This is because they are. If you’re on a PC, you can press the key which is usually the key underneath your escape key that looks like a ‘ to open the dev console, and you can type in //MainCamera>Camera.set_FieldOfView 75 and then //CameraPlane>Camera.set_FieldOfView 75 to adjust the field of view to be perfect. For some reason the game has a seperate camera for the plane and for the main camera, which is weird, but is ok lol. The default FoV is 60 I think.








Easier to run versions:

No logos version (2229 parts)

No minor details version (1268 parts)

With stars but not much else (1086 parts)

For cabbages (586 parts)


Credit to Kitfox Aircraft for supplying me with the blueprints to build this thing, they were super helpful, and credit to Chancey21 for doing the letters on the logo, because he wanted to lol.

Enjoy!

    I will, but I’ll start when Scrappy is getting close to completion. Currently there isn’t really enough to work with. @CRJ900Pilot

    Lmao sorry for spam, but are you gonna make Scrappy? I think it would look really cool just based on the construction videos and your skill

    Do you mind if I use the EXPERIMENTAL lettering in one of my builds? You built it really well and quite frankly I'm lazy. I'll give credit

    I've been at home unwell for the last couple of days, and I've passed the time by watching the Flite Test videos on the Flying Cowboys.
    I now love bush planes as well!

    Yes I can see that it’s a free castering tailwheel, which is really awesome, but for me it seemed like it was either stuck or had too much resistance to caster freely. @jamesPLANESii
