X - SL160

7,440 BlunderBirb  1.4 years ago


Is it a bird? is it a superman? nope. Just a plane. A pretty weird looking plane.
This is the latest creation from X Corp. Its the SL160. An user friendly single seater STOL aircraft that can land within its own length and can survive extremely hard landings.

Specs

¤Engine- Its a custom built fuel injected oversized V4 engine.

¤Top Speed-recorded 195 mph, but is advised to stay within 180mph.
¤Custom stuff- Elevators, Ailerons, Rudders, Flaps etc
¤Take off distance - Approx : 2 plane lengths
¤Landing distance - Approx : half plane length, usually.
¤Maximum approach angle - 75degrees
¤Stall speed - 60mph

Controls

Vtol for flaps
Standard controls
This has the aerodynamic properties of a flying brick, letting go of the throttle results in reacing stall speeds pretty quickly. Which is pretty great for short landings, but not so great for gliding.
Dont throttle down unless youre
over your landing strip

Cockpit


This has

working speed gauge
working artificial horizon
working levers and pedals and yokes

This is a great plane for
beginners as its really easy to land

Note

I d like to point out that this isnt realistic, at all. it all started from a shitty drawing I made 5/6 months ago, in a class room. And I had almost no knowledge about making planes prior to this. So please pardon the inaccuracies.

enjoy

    @BogdanX Yeah, I realised that halfway into the build, but the actual hub looked really ugly and I didnt know any way to fix it
