OV-1D "Mohawk"

337k BogdanX  2.1 years ago

[Armed military observation and attack twin turboprop aircraft]

Controls:

1 - AIR-BRAKES
4,5,6,7 - EJECT PAYLOAD
8 - LIGHTS ON/OFF
VTOL down/TRIM - FLAPS / TRIM TABS

Presentation:

Extra:

  • I know the sensor pod should be consolidated, but i made it ejectable in case you don't like it or want to attempt a belly landing
  • Blueprints, major details and specs match
  • Custom LG suspension supports hard/carrier landings without bouncing
  • Argentinian livery for diversity and simplicity of logos, if you want a Vietnam variant, just paint it "pear green" and replace missiles with rockets pods/bombs

                         THANK YOU 
               EternalDarkness for hint/feedback
               WNP78 for health edit/background
    

By mistake i put the weapon pylons dragscale to 9 instead of 0, resulting in extra 1200 drag. WNP78 point is right, glide ratio is poor (with 0 engine power)... but if I reduce drag (let's say from 12,000 to 3,000), the stall speed also is decreased to 50-60 mph. The real thing, like this build, has a stall speed of 85-95 mph (also the takeoff distance is too short). So, this plane flying comfortable at 50 mph is just wrong.

    @BogdanX I have a plane request, so I know you’ve seen my PA-48 Enforcer, can you do that aircraft, I’d love to see how you make it

    wow.
    I can’t express the hardness
    Of the time it took you to build that of course (very hard to make such amaze plane)

    Nice aesthetics, but the flying... well it accelerates way too fast, due to having too much drag. This is also reflected in the glide ratio of about 1:1... and the climb rate I measured of over 10,000ft per minute, fully loaded (actual: 3,450ft/min). I know it's awkward to mass scale drag, and that's the problem here. Perhaps I should make a tool. If I had time.

    I love how the moment I saw this in my jet stream I just immediately knew it was BogdanX just from how freaking good it looks XD
    In all seriousness though this looks really nice, amazing work!
