Dwarven Backpack Helicopter

26.0k RadarJamJar  4.1 years ago

Set throttle to 65% for take off, usual helicopter controls. Congratulations! You have drawn the shortest straw and will therefore have the honor of testing our new flying machine designed to overcome the only weakness of us Dwarfs, our inability to jump great distances (please don't tell the Elves) designed to carry a fully armored Dwarven warrior over chasms, obstacles, walls and into battle axe and shield at the ready! Let us explain how it works: First steam is created in the boiler it is then directed through a pipe to nozzles at the ends of the rotor blades causing them to spin at great speed, some of the steam is directed to the tail where it is used to control yaw. Now go out there and conquer the mountain winds for Dwarven kind! ( this aircraft is my original creation, any resemblance to other helicopters or dwarfs real or fictional is entirely coincidental)

    @Joshisepic Have you tried exiting back to editor and then back to fly? Sometimes rotators glitch out and that is the only way to fix it.

    You said in your description that you have an art degree, do you have a link to your portfolio? Judging by what you make in this game, I would love to see it.
