XD-5 "VTOL" Fighter ( First upload).

3,620 Mmdben  1.4 years ago

My First build to be uploaded here on simpleplanes

"XD-5 VTOL Fighter" ( FICTIONAL):-

• How to Take off in VTOL mode:-

  • Activate AG3 ( Very strong Gyro that will minimize any chance of you making any mistake).
    -Throttle up to around 10% to 25%.
  • slide the VTOL all the way up.
    -Deactivate AG3, Activate AG7 ( navigation lights) and enjoy your flight small note Don’t activate the Auto pilot it can’t control any VTOL plane, Activate AG3 and the GYRO will do the same.

• How to land in VTOL mode:-

  • Bring throttle to 0%(the plane have high drag around the air intakes so you will slow down rapidly ).
    -Activate AG3.
    -throttle to 6% and once you start going up drop it down to 4%/5% any enjoy your landing.

& Why did I reupload it:-

  • Fixed the way it flies in straight line ,now it’s very stable and will remain level .
    -Added animation: When you spawn the plane, it will jump forward ,so it looks like it’s excited to see some action.

• Features:-

  • Very easy to take off and land vertically!!
  • Custom landing gear.
    -Have custom cockpit view.
  • Missiles are stored in the body.
    -Two Miniguns With insanely high muzzle velocity (In a dogfight all you need is to get the aiming reticule at the cockpit of the other plane and -happily- watch it explode in the air).

• Performance and armament :-

-Can turn better than Pigpen can barely Keep up with the kickfish by using its Flaps.
-Excellent roll rate.
-Very stable in straight line Until you fire all of your rockets it will pitch up but don’t worry you have flaps to correct it .

*For the armament: ( Activated by AG1)

-Four miniguns ( Two with Very high muzzle velocity(You don’t need to lead your shots when in a dogfight!) and two with high fire rate because they look cool)
- 2 Guardians and 4 interceptors missiles ( To use the, activate AG1 and REMEMBER to slide the TIRM all the way up).

• Activation Groups:-

!Can be seen from the cockpit!
-AG1 activate Weapon systems just make sure to slide the TRIM all the way up before firing any air-to-air Missile.(This opens a missile bay)
-AG2 Does nothing.
-AG3 Activates Gyro and thruster nodes to control the plane in VTOL mode.
-AG4 Activates the flaps (TIRM par).
-AG5 does nothing.
-AG6 Does nothing.
-AG7 Activates BEAUTIFUL navigation lights.
-AG8 can’t remember.

I REALLY hope you enjoy this planes as much as I enjoyed building it, and Thanks for the support.

    @TUNDERTEAM 2 weeks, The first 3 days was wasted on examining the game's physics and learning how to edit XML files, I found the physics in this game simple because I like physics alot, I tried to build around 4 planes in the following 3 days( Complete Failures except the XD-3), after them I spend about 8 days on this plane Because I love VTOL Fighters SO MUCH . also you can try the XD-3 "Agility" It's rather simple and will probably run on your phone(make sure to delete the takeoff car). and thanks for the upvote agian.

    @bananajoe322 I made it fast so if you are using a joystick or(the mouse joystick) you can get your guns on target faster when coming out of a turn/loop.
    Thanks for the feedback. it will be put into consideration when building a new one
