Scout Eagle (Update)

Auto Credit Based on jamesPLANESii's Scout Eagle (Update)

The Scout Eagle, revived!

Link to original


My old Scout Eagle is my favourite aeroplane, but it had some issues.

  • Wings were as thin as a piece of paper
  • Landing gear has a lot of faults (wheels not aligned, would be flimsy IRL)
  • Cockpit was a bit lame
  • IRL if you crashed, you would die (no roll cage)
  • Tail section was a bit small
  • Tail wheel connected directly to the rudder (bad)
  • Cargo door only big enough to hold a wallet or something
  • No prop wash

So... I updated it! :D


Features:

  • Thicc wings with automatically deploying slats
  • Double slatted flaps
  • Thicc landing gear with enormous travel and wheels that always stay aligned
  • Awesome cockpit with functioning switches and a working panel
  • Full roll cage so that when you crash, you live
  • Larger tail section that offers lots of control at low speed
  • Better tail wheel
  • Larger cargo door
  • Prop wash

Also includes

  • Realistic prop physics (P factor, prop torque) thanks to use of a tail rotor as the prop. (Remember to add a small amount of right rudder when you take off)
  • Realistic stall characteristics, including the ability to consistently fly at a 25* AoA without spinning
  • Realistic performance all across the board
  • New livery as with the old one, the Eagle wouldn’t have had a head

Oh and credit to @Kentheman for some reason ;) (Go searching)


Controls:

  • Act 1: Opens doors
  • Act 2: Taxi/landing lights
  • Act 8: The other lights (Strobe, navigation, etc)
  • VTOL down: Flaps
  • Trim: Trim

Flight:

This plane is really easy to fly, but here are some techniques that can make you take off and land shorter.

Takeoff:

  1. Trim neutral, elevators neutral, Hold the brakes and full throttle.
  2. When the plane is level (takes about half a second), release the brakes and keep the plane level for the whole take off run
  3. When you get to 30 mph, drop the flaps to full and pull all the way up
  4. Once you get in the air, stay in ground effect for a bit then climb as usual

110 ft takeoff at full fuel

90 ft takeoff empty

Landing:

  1. Full flaps, full trim back, 0% throttle, pull all the way up. Descend on this angle. Use yaw to stay level as ailerons are almost completely ineffective
  2. When you are close to the ground, level off a bit (like, the opposite to a flare) and hit the ground with the brakes on full. Take advantage of the dampening of the suspension.
  3. Slow down until you are stopped. Pull the flaps up when you touch down if you want.

60 ft landing at full fuel

45ft landing empty

- All fuel weight is held in the wing tanks. 64 gallons total.
- The rest is held in the aesthetic fuel block at the back of the cockpit.
- Just note that you may need to invert the “tail” input of the tail rotor after adjusting the fuel.

Cruze

About 75% throttle for cruise. Just note that this plane uses a tail rotor as it’s prop, and it simulates P factor and prop torque and all that fun stuff. Just note that the prop causes a small amount of autoroll in flight. It’ good autoroll BogdanX XD

    Okie dokie
    Places I find difficult: (let me know what u think)
    Uno. Hanger at Wright air port
    Duo. Parking spots at Wright coming in crossways so it’s a descent then landing
    Tre. Long ways beam on a bridge, my LG is too wide but I can do it haha
    Quatro. Destroyer smoke stack
    Cinque. USS Beast elevator on bottom floor
    Seh¿. I don’t speak Italian
    7. Any of the platforms on the beasts comms tower
    8. The front platforms on the beasts comms tower (you need to come in from a 45* angle and turn at last moment)
    9. Fuel tanks at snowstone
    10. Somewhere else at snowstone I can’t remember
    11. Where the ww2 destroyers aft depth charge rack would go (where a normal heli pad would be)
    12. Okay I can’t remember anymore but here’s some I’ve tried with marginal success (as in it’s worked but I haven’t done it twice or it’s probably possible haha)
    A transport in a convoy
    Bottom of the volcano (need serious down force over the main wings to ride the vertical part but have wheel contact)
    Turret on ww2 destroyer
    Torpedo tubes on ww2 destroyer (Farragut I think)
    Turret on destroyer
    Flat beam on Wright hangar
    Cross beam on bridge (horizontal ones)
    Missile/laser platform in snowstone
    Missiles on destroyer
    Meh I’m out

    As in, fuel tanks very close to empty to reduce weight. Weight is your enemy with STOL @Anio
