21.6k TheMutePaper  1.6 years ago

This plane has Been in Development for 4 days, I built it mainly for a photo shoot with other people with NASA like Planes.

The Northrop T-38 Talon is a two-seat, twinjet supersonic jet trainer. It was the world's first supersonic trainer and is also the most produced. The T-38 remains in service as of 2018 in several air forces ever since it's first flight back in 1959.

    Interesting, had not seen this one yet. I have around 500 hours in the T-38A and was an IP in the jet. A little nose heavy, does it have trim, can't seem to make it work. Looks pretty good, though.

    @EternalDarkness i'll try that on a future fighter jet.

    @TheMutePaper my suggestion is to exploit new possibilities to the fullest. Remove all drag and add artificial drag by using a single fuselage block with drag enabled. Hide actual flaps inside the nose, and add more wings inside the visible ones. Also, with far less drag, you'll need weaker engines for realistic speed, allowing for realistic acceleration and climb rate.

    @EternalDarkness if i put wings in flaps, it would just pitch down ward due to how far back the wing is, as for the brick part, I would agree, it was hard getting it to fly smoothly without bobbing or fly like the crusader b, thanks for the criticism, I hope to improve from then on

    It looks great, but flies like a brick with a jet engine. Reduce mass or add wings. Also, flaps don't do anything.
