Target Tracker 360 Radar

Target Tracker 360 Radar


The 3rd (?- 4th) working radar in SimplePlanes! A simple, easy to use, low part count radar that will work well in aircraft with cockpits. Designed to be easily saved as a sub-assembly, and then put on the user's choice aircraft.


Demo Aircraft


Operation Notes

First and foremost, the paint scheme is rather important if you want the radar to glow. It requires 6 color slots, but really the first two are optional. They're just for the background and surrounding frame.

So the red, blue, green, and pink need to stay to retain night capabilities.

Secondly, when moving the assembly, hold it by the long fuselage on the bottom. It'd be bad if the radar gets messed up as it doesn't go back together easily.

This model is scaled appropriately to fit with 1:1 scale aircraft.


How It Works

The main radar system is composed of 2 pistons and 1 rotator. The first piston pushes the target marker out and into view when a target is selected. The second piston is for target distance. It extends or retracts depending on how far out the target it. The rotator (a little pain to get to work) pivots the distance piston around the center point based on the target angle and your heading.

The compass works as a compass, a fuselage block with the arrows and dots pivots around on a rotator to keep the arrow always facing north.


Specs

-Glow in the dark
-12.5-mile range
-145 pounds
-Built-in compass


Don't need credit if you use it, but maybe tag me I want to see what uses you all come up with. In the future, I may make a model that tells the elevation of the target and possibly speed, but for now, this is all the Funky Trees I can handle. Thanks for stopping by!

    @stevemc01 you're able to get the code by using the overload editor. Just select the rotators or piston.

    I was wondering if you could post the code for this radar, because it just seems so authentic that I may try making this as a square (for a 747 maybe).

    Hey, man. It's very good for the F15. I think it's great in the cockpit. How did you like it?

    Would be nice if there's a two stage torpedo input like having a missile launch then fuel will run one then going to the water and then re igniting again to seek ships

    Cooooool the other radars are a bit not cool looking but this is. Also I will use it in my next builde (MIG_SPEACIAL EDITION). Thank you.

    @ollielebananiaCFSP You’ve got HawaiiRangers, and then VCharng’s from their new demo aircraft. I am unaware of any other working radars.
