Yay! I finally made the glider at my gliding club!
I started building this before I built my Road King, but I kinda whent off it for a wee while, but then after I built Draco, I decided I would finish it.


Features:

Realistic glide ratio, realistic performance, THE FIRST PROPERLY WORKING WINCH, full cockpit (Only a tiny bit simplified), fun to fly, 1:1 scale.

The winch is 2km long, which means you can only start at Wright, Yeagar, Avalanche, and Maywar.


Controlls:

Throttle: Rheel in the winch.
Act 1: Release from the winch. (Sadly no back release. :( )
Brake: air brakes


How to take off realistically:


  1. Slowly power up to 75% on the winch

  2. Pull up to about 45 degrees

  3. try and keep your speed between 70 and 80 mph.

    increase the power of the winch a bit if you are struggling to keep your nose high enough and maintain airspeed.

    Speed controll on the winch is opposite to normal flight because your being pulled up by a rigid piston. Pull up further to go faster, lower your nose to go slower. This is not how it works in real life, but it works I guess.

Accuracy

-Note that this is a training variant, and that I has shorter wingtips and fixed landing gear.


Personally, I'm really pleased with how this turned out. Particularly the winch, which actually works better than aerotows! I'm suprised nobody has done it before...


Link to the mod that you need to zoom out far enough that you can find the winch and the glider XD

ENJOY!!!

    @jamesPLANESii Oh good sir this delectably curvy glider emphasizes the epitome of engineering perfection so flawlessly that I am at a loss for words. I stand here utterly awe-stricken at this marvel that has been crafted most eloquently with a firm, yet subtle hand. Please take this review as a confirmation of your superior building proficiency. Good day, Sir.

    This is just awesome. I might be flying in a glider soon so I’m excited.

    When you release from the tow line, do full throttle to make sure the tow line doesn’t blow up. For some reason, when the winch s damaged, the wheel goes crazy lol. @8bitgamer33

    Anyone else find this is broken? I can't land on the runway because it glitches and it randomly glitches out and explodes
