Horten Ho 229

Horten Ho IX / Ho 229 (V2)

It seems is a little controversy about model name and what allied captured
Irobert55 insists Ho IX is the correct name


[Fighter/Light Bomber Flying Wing designed by Germany in War World 2]


Controls:


Presentation:


Features:
* Original V2 blueprints captured by allies
* V3 Specs (max speed 610 mph at 39,000ft ) and major details
* Custom functional elevons, yaw spoilers, airbrakes, flaps, trim-tabs etc
* Landing gear light bulb flash is intentional, ww2 planes had a a lot of electric issues, especially in heavily bombed Germany
* Perfect landing is possible, but takes some practice to find the perfect speed/angle. Took me a while to tweak the landing gear to be functional in SP
Just use flaps and try to keep nose up, while gently touch down.


        BiG THANK YOU @Mod @ChiChiWerx

    Hypothetical or Replica?

    Awesome build man! This is one of my favourite, if not my favourite, german wwii fighter. However, I do also have a question. I am working on making one build of mine into a complete flying wing but at the moment, when I remove the vertical stabilisers, it just yaws right after takeoff. I have tried to add vertical stabilisers internally to not have them visable but to no avail. Do you by chance have any tips of tricks you could share with me? Thank you for any help you can give! ( here is a link to the plane incase it helps to see it: https://www.simpleplanes.com/a/6ATnQH/B-20B )

    @BogdanX Some Nazi swastikas kept the original rotation, and not all of the other swastikas had dots next to them. But you're right about the last part (thanks to the one-sided historical education in the US).

    @ZwillingerLuftfox46 the original swastika wasn't rotated by 45 degrees either and had some dots either.
    Still, 99% people on this planet, except Indian Oil Trucks drivers, connect it to Hitler

    @BogdanX A general rule of thumb to go by is that is the swastika isn't a black(or dark shades of Gray), squared off, equally proportioned one, it's not representing Nazism. Oil Trucks in India often are seen with swastikas on them for good luck(or at least they used to be), and they can be seen on some Hindu and Buddhist temples.

    @ZwillingerLuftfox46 i know about the origins of the Swastika... but the nazi are identified by it. Fact

    @BogdanX No the swastika is not “their symbol”. It is the Hindi and Buddhist symbol of good luck and the Sun. Hitler, being the egomaniac he was, use the symbol because he thought his Reich would last a thousand years.

    @AdlerSteiner maybe because the nazi were responsible for the death of 40 millions people and that swastika is their emblem?
    Is only accepted on museums

    The problem is that if a German wants to download the aircraft, then the swastika should not be shown, because in Germany, the swastika is prohibited.

    All in all, the Aircraft is perfect

    @Franticmatty i am not so much into helicopters, still i promised to build two (M-17 and the Kamov Ka-50 ) ... still, someone asked me for suggestions about cool and rare aircraft, so this could be it

    Awesome plane! I found this helicopter and thought you might be interested. Its called the "hh 43" used in Vietnam. Not sure if you've made one before :D

    @BogdanX I suspected as such. Awesome work on getting everything aligned properly. I'll try it on my design soon. Thanks!

    @ainanen i used 2 hinges instead of one. Feel free to download it and inspect it. Multi-select option of fine-tuner helps by making parts transparent, so you can see past them

    Hey dude, this plane is awesome. The way the controls work is amazing. I recently made a replica of the Mirage 2000C, and I was wondering if you could help me make elevons for it so the controls are realistic. I don't understand how you've made the elevons work for both pitch and roll here and I'd love some help.

    @CenturiVonKikie keep in mind this is a flying wing, is not a delta wing like an eurofighter or a mirage plane.
    The physics and mechanics are dramatically different.
    Still, since it was only tested as a glider and when engines were installed, the test pilot crashed, there is not much data about flight model

    @BogdanX I wonder what the physics behind them are, im so confused as to how they make the plane pitch up when lowered.
