Ship Prototype - Wing In Ground Effect

11.4k Avro683Lancaster  5 months ago
Auto Credit Based on Avro683Lancaster's Ship Prototype

Korabl-Maket

A new design from the Central Hydrofoil Design Bureau armed with 4 Anti ship missiles to destroy any capitalist pigs that may get in your way.

Attempt at an Ekranoplan using the new rotors' Transitional Lift and Ground Effect scalars. Based off the Lun Class Ekranoplan and A-90 Orlyonok (to a lesser extent). The craft will stay in the ground effect (~15ft), although with enough pitch at lower speeds, or with trim on above 270mph will escape. I have tried and failed to stop it from bobbing, the best remedy is to dampen it to reduce the amplitude. Most of this was done on iOS so expect nothing too fancy.


Controls

  • AG1: roll leveling gyro, leaves pitch unaffected
  • AG2: Cruise Control, acts as autopilot while still allowing control

Flying Notes

  • Autopilot is not recommended, as it will lower the beaching gear unless engaged above approx. 75ft
  • Steering on water is achieved with Yaw up to 20mph
  • Steering in flight is achieved by rolling the craft until one of the pontoons touches the water - the turning circle is very large
  • AG1 & AG2 are used for craft stabilisation for cruising and can be used for taxiing
  • for long stretches of straight line cruising without course adjustments, the throttle can be reduced to 70%
  • Full throttle on a straight run gives a top speed of 350mph, for which trim must be set to 1/2 up
  • Set Trim slider to Full down (pitch up) unless above 270mph
  • Have fun trying to land, it floats in the air at 30mph
  • To stop, hold Brake until almost stationary

    Your Ekranoplan looks quite good, especially with the hull, and performs well. In terms of the flight characteristics, I know why my ekranoplan bobs, but I have no clue on how to reduce/remove it while still flying as intended.@Mickk

    How do you change the transitional lift and ground effect scales? I don’t see them in the options menu for heli rotors.
