H.M.A. Silent Witness

69.2k Treadmill103  6 months ago

In a parallel universe somewhen:

His Majesty's Aircraft “Silent Witness” carries out reconnaissance missions that include photography, ELINT and SIGINT as well as providing radio links between friendly forces and home bases. The craft's low-noise power plant enables almost silent flight at low speeds to avoid detection by ground troops. In addition to normal elevator trim, the front canards are fitted with additional flaps for take-off and low-speed trim.

Take-off: VTOL down fully to set take-off flaps then apply full throttle: The craft will self-launch at 185mph. Once airborne, adjust flaps or elevator trim for required climb then raise undercarriage.

Landing: Use 10% throttle for final approach, cutting power just before wheels touch.

Taxiing: AG1 to enable steering, then low throttle and yaw.

Crew: 5 in staggered tandem: Pilot and co-pilot/observer in front compartment. 3 specialist volunteer air crew in rear compartment for navigation, radio and intelligence gathering; recruited from Sage/Caven.

Built by: Sage/Caven, Government Contractors.

    @Treadmill103 No problem! I upvoted this just because of the looks, I didn't have time to fly it.

    Thank you! I tried for a different look for this one, especially the fuselage and tail section as you say; glad you like the handling as that is what I spent the most time on! Currently building an autogyro, ready in 2 weeks time@Hyattorama

    Very cool design as usual! I love the tail section and the landing gear. Also the windscreen/windows are funky and awesome. Flying is great, really satisfying landing. Love it!

    The engine sound is from a kit of engines given by SledDriver and were central to the concept of this build; thanks for the upvote!@OmegaDestroyer
