Flying Test-bed MK.7

2,798 CenturiVonKikie  7 months ago

An old design I built, it's pretty nimble and sturdy at medium physics.

Pitch is reversed, roll for roll, throttle for collective pitch, VTOL for engine power. Flight demo below.

    @Ambarveis I didn't see that as being rude, don't worry. The new update kinda does away with the need to make a mechanically functional swash plate for recreating genuine rotorcraft anyways. Though I doubt that'll stop people from making their own from scratch.

    @CenturiVonKikie Ah, no, it's just I have my own preferences, sorry for being rude.

    Also, I have some mod installed that might have interfered with its usual functionality. I think it might be because of the unlimited spin mod being active that it explodes on full throttle.

    If there's anything I would change, I'll tone down the rotor speed a bit and lessen the pitch range of the rotors. But really, this heli is really well done.

    With a little fine tuning this will be good to go

    @DJS8Corporations yeah I'm not really fond of gyros for conventional rotorcraft.

    @CenturiVonKikie I haven't seen one of those, ever since the gyro came out.

    Is that a working swash plate?
