Avro Vulcan

41.6k Tang0five  1.8 years ago

Well it’s taken considerable amounts of time and effort but here she is, (with great trepidation) I give you a full scale Vulcan Bomber. Being in anti-flash white she is appropriately armed with a Blue Steel stand-off ‘nuclear’ missile. This is a modification of the kingfisher missile from my TU-16 which is itself modified from one of mikoyanster’s weapons pack he was sporting enough to share with the community, thank you. Big thanks are also due to RamboJutter and GhostHTX for feedback and continued support as I bludgeon together another build!

Part count unfortunately was a limiting factor in this hence why stock air brakes have been used. The actual Vulcan has a rather interesting mechanism I wanted to replicate but my iPad was beginning to sweat being +500 parts so I made do with stock parts.

Controls

1 Ditches the nuke
2 Close/open landing gear doors
3 Landing Chute
8 Lights

Notes on handling (settings low on an old iPad anyway)

Roll tends to pitch the aircraft so be prepared to mix things up a little with the stick.

Stall speed. Lacking sadly and I don’t like the unrealistic nature of that - it is what it is alas. This is not an easy shape to get flying so I suspect stall point is related to the various wing sections I inserted to make flight possible.

Pitch is most effective just short of maxing out.

Takeoff. Laboured. Stick with it! Trim can be used to assist. I’ve noticed on higher settings (where it’s painfully slow on my iPad) takeoff appears to take longer to achieve.

Some screenshots below.

Someone missing don’t you think.....

Thanks for any interest and I wish you all the best for the new year!

    @Tang0five Id say for any system its an excellent creation. For the mods I do not have any experience, I only use one which changes size of objects. I dont know why they haven't given us more options so the mods wouldn't be needed. Such as various inputs for rotators.

    Oh there’s tons wrong with this build. This was before the xml mod was added for mobile users and I’d definitely do things differently nowadays, The Vulcans a tough wing profile to follow and (being on peasant iOS ipadair) was done by eyeballing. Thanks for you interest though! @m16a2wm203

    It looks great and flying isn't bad at all, it is a bit slower than I expected though. The take-off is quite obvious, check for center of mass position and where main gear is. Also regarding center of mass (CG), I do not know where real vulcan has the CG, but somehow I'd suspect it to be in front of center of lift.
    Great work!

    Sorry I’ll catch up on my SP admin - thanks for your support guys, rest assured the victor will follow. This may take a few months as I flew headlong into it and realised I had a few things unfinished that I feel need to be completed before proceeding! @ForeverPie @F104Deathtrap @BurkeEnterprise @BogdanX
