SP-170 "Blue Whale"

3,021 ValtsuAircraftIndustries  2.4 years ago

So yeah, a old stylish passenger flying boat. It's extremely hard, if not impossible to takeoff(it took off relatively easily at one point, but then it just stopped doing it and I didn't change anyting). It's quite easy to control at high speeds, but don't do sudden movements or big movements when flying at low speed. It's also quite easy to land. Just don't go too fast horizontally or too fast vertically. I kinda just put this out even though it doesn't exactly work as I wished. I just couldn't really make out, what the problem even was(you don't need to start searching the problem, because I'm very likely not gonna come back to this plane anyway) and the engines are modded pretty much the fastest max RPM, where they work properly. It looks pretty cool so it has that going for it at least.

Extra: This is also my first plane that I heavily XML modded using the mod Overload(It's very useful, you should check it out!).

    Beautiful build that nicely catches the spirit of old flying boats. At slow speeds it really flies like a whale :-D

    My impression is, that the plane floats in nose down attitude and elevators don't have enough authority to pitch up to have positive angle of attack. I tried to reduce buoyancy in rear of plane but that caused nose sinking even deeper O.O
