Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird

by   6,052 Aeriast  3 months ago

American spy plane capable of speeds exceeding 2,200 MPH (Mach 3) at an altitude of 85,000 feet.

Turn on afterburners after exceeding about 40,000 feet.

This plane tends to have severe wing flex when flying low and fast, or when overhandling it. Keep your speed reasonable when not above 40,000 feet, and try not to turn too fast.

CONTROLS:
AG1 - Engage afterburners
AG2 - Turn on anti-collision lights
AG3 - Deploy brake chute

>Have fun!

    @Aeriast yesss yesss... i am an amazing person pffff! And xml edited parts you can take from anyone, cause they are universally available. Like disabled collision parts or landing gear hinges.
    Permission should be asked (or credit given) when you borrow more complex elements, with lots of parts involved. Like custom cockpits, landing gear, fuselage sections, weapon bays, logos etc...
    This plane is decently built, to scale, tip of the nose is not accurate, but rudders are very nice

    @Aeriast for fast planes like this use xml edited wings. If you don't have them, take them from my SR-71

    I like how you did the rudders

    @Aeriast from my experience - adding weight to them and adding 2 additional connections to the inner wing segment (just detach the wing, put in 2 small fuselage parts before and after the main wing connection poitn, and stick it back) will probably help.

    @Viper28 They should stop flapping when at heights of over 40,000 feet, I did notice trying to go fast when low lead to severe flexing.

    The wingtips tend to bend and flap at high speeds (I found in excess of 2200mph).
